Adoption of Wearables – the future

|

Real, granular adoption by and through the people – how exactly does that happen?Are we all really going to use wearables? Patches? All of that? Enter the data?  That’s the big demographic question. The latter implies issues of heterogeneity – the poor won’t do it? Will they trade patches, devices? Can numbers be grossly manipulated? Who initiates all of this? The government? Insurance firms? Do we start with hospitals? One type of area? Illness? Prevention? A demographic? Who controls and manages this all as we go for adoption? Will this be standardized? By the government, insurance companies?  How do we get this all started? Like big time.

Opportunities & Challenges for wearables

|

One of the key opportunities of wearables, sensors and other devices is the effortless capturing of detailed longitudinal healthcare data to monitor individuals’ progress.These massive amounts of generated data has the potential to improve insights into health risks, outcomes, performance and to take prescriptive actions. All the amount of information collected on individuals, patients or not, can offer an unprecedented potential to generate insights into human behaviour, clinical decision support, disease surveillance, and population health management.One of the current key challenges is, that this generated information lives in silos outside the healthcare system and is non-actionable. So the already discussed standardization and integration remains a key barrier. Transforming wearables ...

Is it time for consolidation in IOT?

|

The IOT space in India is still in a nascent stage. Most products are in POC stage, most companies are tight lipped about their IOT divisions and apart from tech talk, there is not much use cases or real products to talk about. But given how massive this sector will be in a few years, some have started early.  Yesterday, Happiest Minds acquired IoT company Cupola Technology. It is understood that  Cupola’s gateway management, smart provisioning and asset management technologies will help Happiest Minds in faster deployments. The size of the deal is unknown but earlier Ashok Soota, founder of Happiest Minds, had said that they are looking for acquisitions up to $10 million. So, at least, we know how much Cupola was not worth.  

“Artificial Intelligence” or “Augmented Intelligence?”

|

The real difference between both is the role of the human. In artificial intelligence, machines acquire intelligence, intention and awareness. They, eventually, can replace human beings in certain tasks. Augmented intelligence, on the other hand, talks about machines complementing humans and making them better at accomplishing tasks.  This article has a very neat example:  If an AI system were pictured as an autonomously functioning robot, an HCI-inspired system might be more like the powered exoskeletons that will someday enable paraplegics to walk, or soldiers to have superhuman strength or endurance on the battlefield. AI aims to work alone; HCI aims to support and strengthen human actors. You can also go through this post if you wish to  delve deeper. Let us know your thoughts or any i...

Where are the Indian IOT unicorns?

|

During last few months of conversations with various stakeholders, somehow, the issue that always comes up is India does not have any significant innovations in IOT space. Some say we we have only managed to tinker a little, some others believe serious work is being done but they have not caught the public eye. We are are starting a series to highlight the IOT products coming out of India. You can send us your product details or share and recommend other brilliant efforts. It’s free and we are taking submissions.  Let us know if you are interested in being featured in the comments below or mail us at om@nasscom.in. Spread the word.
