IoT World Congress and the Digital Convergence of AI, Blockchain, IoT

I am deeply honored and excited to know that some of our efforts at converging AI, Analytics, Blockchain, Big Data, IoT, Quantum Computing are getting recognized across global thought leadership forums. IoT World Congress has shared my views on the Digital Convergence in the recent article they have published in the forum.

What will happen when these three technologies act jointly and coordinate in the same environment? For experts in data science and cognitive computing such as Gokul Alex, AI will constitute the brain which will make the decisions set to manage the industrial production of the future, IoT will act as the backbone of the connected society and blockchain will establish an impregnable data exchange chain between them.

Alex points out that the convergence of these three great technologies means blockchain will manage the extraordinary potential of AI. “IoT will help to transform the potential of blockchain into effective connectivity networks, while the concurrence of AI, IoT and blockchain will encourage the creation of synergies in the working environments of digital economies, converting the fourth industrial revolution into a reality. Robotics will also play a leading role in this confluence, once AI has transformed its operations into more fluid and transparent processes for both humans and machines.”

 

Travelling with Time Together with a Teacher : Respect and Reflections

This is a short note reflecting on my conversations with one of my favorite teachers of all time. I have learned about life, livelihood, logic, literature and so many forms of knowledge from various masters. I respect their knowledge and remember all of them with gratitude. Today when professor K.C.Ravindranath called me inviting to take a session on AI, Machine Learning and Deep Learning at Rajadhani Institute of Engineering and Technology at Thiruvananthapuram, I am really honored and more importantly astonished by his vitality and passion to travel future forward with the younger generation as energetic as a creatively curious and confident child. I wish I will have this spirit and passion in the days to come. He is very keen and eager to get the young talent to contribute to the academic ecosystem with all integrity and sincerity. We need teachers and mentors like him to revive the creative confidence in our teachers and students all over India.

Innovation Master Classes by HubStreet at Bhub Thiruvananthapuram !

I am quite creatively curious about the innovation master classes program organised by #HUBSTREET a group of talented youngsters in Kerala. Perhaps it is the first innovation community fully organised by young children. Looking forward to converse with them on the basic purposes and concepts of innovation.
