How the Internet of Things Is Revolutionizing the Healthcare Industry!

The world’s approach to health has changed a lot over the years, with the invention of smart wearables and applications the overall level of innovations and connectivity in modern medical equipment have developed the healthcare industry. Medical data doubles every three years and the trillion-dollar health industry is unable to keep up with the staggering rate in which information is produced. From medical records, direct trials and research to personal fitness bands, implanted devices and other sensors; IoT devices are able to collect real-time data equivalent to millions of health-related books. IoT brings together vast amounts of needed data into one centralized hub on the cloud, combining analytics with advanced cognitive capabilities. IoT in the healthcare industry allows medical cent...

In The Spotlight: DronaMaps Executes Volumetric Assessments for Govt of Haryana’s Mining Dept

Traditionally, volumetric analysis required workers to collect data manually by climbing on stockpiles with heavy and expensive equipment, which can be very risky. The workers have to make a trade off between collecting quality data and their own & equipment safety. The potential of drones for the mining industry is to improve efficiency and cost. DronaMaps incubated at NASSCOM CoE Gurugram, did the survey for Bakhrija Stone Mine, Tehsil Narnaul, District. Mahendragarh for Department of Mines & Geology, Government of Haryana. Using a quadcopter and 2 DGPS the survey was conducted in two phases. After the end of the survey, the captured data was brought to DronaMaps Lab for processing and desired imagery (3D, 2D and DSM) was generated. The change detection was done by mapping the sa...

New book on IoT and cyber security

To secure India’s future as a digital superpower, we need to think ahead and secure our data, infrastructure, IP and innovation by securing our digital footprint. In an environment where the cyber threats are growing each day exponentially, and the country is having to deal with cyberattacks arising from regional geopolitical tensions, and trade-related repercussions, the nation’s progress could be held hostage by state and non-state actors acting independently or in concert. With increasing investments in malware and breach tactics, hackers now have the upper hand in almost every situation, and this presents many risks to our economic growth, national interests and safety of our citizens online. What can India do to secure its digital footprint, and how can it deal with cyber ...

The Innovation Imperative Is More Real Than You Think

The legendary Steve Jobs once quipped “innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower”, and yet most organizations would happily wane into the background as followers than dare become leaders. Leading is difficult, as it is riddled with uncertainties, unprecedented losses,. Being a follower was acceptable for a long time, when markets were artificially protected, customers were blissfully ignorant, competition was wilfully dormant, and technology was a luxury limited to a few. This is not true anymore.. The world has truly become democratised where ubiquitous technology, high-speed connectivity, affordable mobility, and pervasive insecurity has intensified the need for innovation. Integrated with unrelenting financial markets, opportunistic product markets, and constantly in-flux...

AI Pervasiveness in Retail

The retail sector leverages various digital technologies such as Robotics, IoT, AR/VR, etc.,. While all these technologies have potential to operate in isolation, when combined with AI these technologies get a centralized brain. AI not only complements these technologies, but also acts as a link between them, which allows AI to access data from different systems and deliver real-time insights. Some of the most widely used AI technologies across the retail value chain are Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Conversational AI, Data Science and NLP. Today AI finds application across the retail value chain to address challenges such as demand forecasting, product development, supply chain planning, store operations, campaign management and customer experience. Key Highlights Retail landscape In...

Moving towards an AI-enabled future

McKinsey Global Institute claims that artificial intelligence is contributing to a transformation of society 10 times faster and at 300 times the scale, or roughly 3000 times the impact of the Industrial Revolution. This is observed by the upsurge in artificial intelligence and computer vision adaptation as well as the demand to keep up with the technology and innovation in businesses in the last few years. According to a report by IDC, aggressive investments have been made in cognitive and AI solutions and in fact, global investments are expected to reach $57.6 billion by 2021. Such investments are catalysed by the advent of modern computer vision and image processing techniques. AI-powered computer vision coupled with hardware-based accelerators have opened up the possibilities of analys...
