The Many Splendid Varieties of Marketing Technologists in 2020: Martech Roles and Archetypes

ABOUT THE AUTHOR Scott Brinker, Editor, Chiefmartec.com and VP Platform Ecosystem, HubSpot At the intersection of marketing and technology, there’s a growing discipline of hybrid “martech” professionals known as “marketing technologists.” But there are many variations within this field.

The model classifies marketing technologist activities along two axes: X Axis: Internal Orientation to External Orientation Y Axis: Process Orientation to Technology Orientation “Internal Orientation” is about serving stakeholders inside the organization, while “External Orientation” is about engagements with customers. “Process Orientation” i...

AI-enabled Vaccines for Diabetes, Heart disease and Cancer featured as top technology breakthrough by Carnegie Mellon University

ABOUT THE AUTHOR Bhargav Sri Prakash, Founder & CEO, FriendsLearn It is an open secret that Doctors are being manipulated with incentive-based “sales quotas”, as they prescribe invasive medications/treatments that cause more harm from side effects. It is imperative that we restore the human condition to levels of natural equilibrium embodied in ancient traditions, when wealth did not conflict with health. Ayurveda is built upon a foundation of “Swasthasya swasthya rakshanam. Aturasya roga nivaranam” (To protect health. To prevent disease – Charaka Samhita 500 B.C). In sharp contrast, “Do no harm” (Hippocratic Oath) becomes irreconcilable with money at stake from over-diagnosing, over-treating, over-medicating to increase lifelong dependency. Th...

Shouldering The Legacy of Yesterday: Flashback to Healthcare in 2019

With the start of the new decade, it becomes imperative to analyze, what has the last decade given us in the field of healthcare. Understanding about aspects we dealt with, in 2010, and things we achieved in 2019, play an important role in defining the next 10 years. Speculations regarding technology and a step ahead in healthcare ended when the concepts like Hybrid Model surfaced in the healthcare sector in India. 2019 saw some exceptional changes that did not confine themselves to the boundaries of geographical constraint, but spread across the natural habitats. We must appreciate the efforts that went under, in establishing a sound system of better connectivity and approach to new horizons of healthcare in India.

The Rise of the Cognitive Enterprise in a Post Digital Transformation World

ABOUT THE AUTHOR Brian Solis, Digital Analyst, Author & Top 10 Futurist Dear C-Suite, I have to ask. How do you define digital transformation and what does it look like once you’ve digitally transformed?

It’s an endless process. To compete for the future now, enterprises must start to plan for a post digital transformati...

Electric vehicle and scaling up in the face of a slowdown

Electric vehicles (EV) are not new. More than 100 years ago, two of the greatest innovators, Henry Ford and Thomas Alva Edison rolled out prototype EV’s on a Model-T cranking up a 20mph with a range of 50-100 miles on a single charge of nickel-iron batteries. It was the mass rollout of cheap, gasoline-powered Model-T in 1915 that shifted the focus onto Internal Combustion (IC), away from the EV. What is guiding us to EV/Hybrid vehicles? Some trivia on the Indian market: Growth of 10% pa in the number of registered vehicles against population growth of 3.8% pa. About 20 accident-related deaths-per-lakh against 200 deaths-per-lakh caused by air pollution (high CO, NO2, Pb-ppm levels). How does India move? 18% are on public transport, 12% on two-wheelers, 4% on cars, about 30% immobile (old a...

Imagining the AI future

ABOUT THE AUTHOR Amandeep Singh Gill, Project Lead, International Digital Health & AI Research Collaborative Less than a decade since the machine learning leap in Artificial Intelligence, AI-based systems have already upended many fields: online advertising, e-commerce, financial risk assessment, cyber-physical systems and travel to name a few, and created new winners and losers. There is an incipient AI race underway and some fear that the techno-economic competition will soon extend to weapon systems with deep consequences for the nature of warfare. Then there is the social impact. AI brings a qualitatively different dimension to the ongoing digitalization of social and economic systems. AI systems will increasingly act like human expert systems in key socio-economic areas such as le...
