AgriTalk with Vijay Pratap Singh Aditya, Co-Founder CEO & Director, Ekgaon

Vijay, let’s start with the most frequently asked question – will the farmer pay for a technology based service? While people are still asking this question, you started working on a model more than a decade back. What were the challenges you had to overcome and ideas that worked for you? To use a clichéd word, value. Once again, whether a farmer will pay or not will depend on his perceived value. Companies which serve this segment will have to understand this clearly to make any kind of impact. Value cannot be vague, generic and superficial. It has to be demonstrable and customized; this is particularly true for crop advisory services for the farm. Most importantly, for rural folks like their urban counterparts, trust is supreme. They will buy only from those whom they trust and would be ...

AI for Good – CoE-DSAI initiative Invites AI Solutions that impact society

Do You Have a Solution That Can Change a Billion Lives? The prevailing belief at CoE – DSAI is that Artificial Intelligence should also enhance people’s lives, going well beyond business requirements alone. If development has to be sustained then people will have to be empowered, and in our case, through technology. To be sure, AI is already being used to address common enough yet complex problems, particularly in mitigating natural disasters, providing citizen-centric services, helping achieve health coverage, improving public safety, managing waste, tackling pollution, enhancing efficiency in governance, among others. Right now, the pace in which AI is being understood and adopted is at a critical juncture. It has to be harnessed now which will lead to large scale impact with long-term b...

IIoT and I4.0 Drive Expanding Functional Spectrum of IIoT Edge Devices

The IIoT edge is still in the development stage regarding solidification of its ultimate role in emerging IIoT architectures, but there is no doubt as to its rising importance in fulfilling the IIoT vision.  As industrial internet strategies are evolving, so too are the functional capabilities of the enabling edge infrastructure devices.  In the IIoT gateway and router market, this expanding functional spectrum provides both IT and OT suppliers with more options as to where to position device offerings.  New offerings, including highly functional low-cost devices, target a variety of points along the broadening price/performance spectrum associated with the edge. Broad Scope of Offerings at Both High and Low Ends Availability of high-end edge computing platforms capable of supporting insta...

Artificial Intelligence in the Healthcare Sector

There is a constant buzz about how disruptive technologies are creating new markets and pushing the old ones out of business. Previously, companies had time to think, evaluate, and justify decisions to deploy new strategies and technologies. But, in this era of smart connected products, manufacturers must be agile and incorporate the technology that customers are looking for in their next-generation products and create a digital thread – that connects critical information to track a product and its digital assets from concept to market. All industrial sectors are feeling the heat to adopt new technologies – and the healthcare sector is no exception. There is a huge market for artificial intelligence AI in the healthcare sector and many companies, such as Google, Apple, Dell, HewlettPackard...

Enabling Artificial Intelligence with Clean Data

The application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) requires that data be processed at the speed of operations in order to analyze the performance of any given process system. In this way, important decisions can be made quickly to improve the performance of the operation. But for those decisions to be made in real-time, data must be of the highest quality, and that presents a challenge to the industry. Quantity vs quality IoT has driven a tremendous explosion in the quantity of data. Today, there are many sensors measuring and providing data on temperature, flow, vibration, product viscosity and energy consumption, just to name a few. Add, for example, video and images to that mix and you start to get a feel for the vast amount of data that has to be processed. While this can potentially prov...
