Data Warehouses vs. Data Lakes

|

All data-driven organizations use data in three ways: To report on the past To understand the present To predict the future Data warehouses and Business Intelligence (BI) tools support reporting and analytics on historical data while data lakes support newer use cases that leverage data for machine learning, predictions, and real-time analysis.

How Automation will impact the way we work?

|

I happened to interview IAS officer Aditya Ranjan, who turned his passion for Robotics into reality by creating the COVID Cobot in his district Chaibasa to carry out food and medicine delivery services to COVID suspected or positive patients. It amazed me to see the work he did and I was intrigued to learn more. “The bot performs basic delivery services with ease,” he said thereby reducing risk of constantly coming in human contact with other members. “What is it that the bot cannot do then?” I enquired. “Well it cannot be empathetic. It cannot think of the next best possible creative solution. It cannot perform critical thinking activities. But it helps me and my team members perform these activities instead,” he gushed.     According to the Pew Research Center Survey on ‘Automa...

How the lockdown fuelled Automation?

|

Washing Machine versus Hand Wash The washing machine adorns my house by occupying considerable space in the kitchen. Yet, elders in the house preferred hand washed clothes because ‘haath se dhoney par kapde zyada baariki se dhulte aur saaf hotey hai’(the hands do a better job at washing clothes leaving them cleaner than what the machine may not be able to achieve). We’re talking of BC (Before the COVID crisis) when the machine was left lonely, only to be turned to in case of emergency or when bedsheets were to be churned. Little did we know that this loner would soon become our best buddy through the COVID lockdown period effortlessly simplifying the washing and semi-drying process thereby leaving us with more time to focus on other chores. Left with no other alternative of human help, and...

Can AI make us more HUMAN?

|

If a robot dies, would it make you sad? For lots of people, the answer could be “yes”. A recent relevant example is that of an AI-powered available robot called Nao. When under an environment of controlled experimentation 89 people were asked to turn it off, most of them refused to do so because Nao pleaded to stay on. In another case, an American marketing executive had been used to sharing her home office with Jibo. For most of the time, she found it dumb and annoying. However, when soon after Jibo’s makers announced its death sentence, the same executive felt sorry for him. These and many other similar references tell us something really important about our emotional response to machines. AI is supposed to be driven by objective criterion through which an agent’s behavior is measured. T...

Can data save lives?

Imagine if all of your personal health data is available on a single digital platform! You could also possibly run some tools over it to figure out the best possible medical programs for you- or government could use it to gauge overall health of a nation. The idea is not too far-fetched since Indian Government recently launched a policy called National Open Digital Ecosystem (NODE). One of it’s main focus would be to accumulate citizen’s health data that is currently scattered across various platforms in the country. The initiative is expected to: issue guidelines for states, departments, ministries and private institutions to bring all of their data in a common format. instruct the different parties involved to allow interoperability between datasets stored in different organizations. des...
