Designing an Open Innovation Ecosystem through Lean, Agile, Exponential Methods

A sustainable innovation ecosystem emerges from the passionate and persistent efforts of a lean and agile team evolving through a perseverant and progressive environment. It is how we sum up the experience in designing, building, operating an innovation lab in an evolving and enchanting city of Thiruvananthapuram. This video is a reflection and recollection of this journey from a humble beginning within a corporate innovation lab facility to a transformational open innovation ecosystem that could partner with global research hubs such as MIT, Stanford University, TU Delft, Russian Quantum Centre, CSIR etc. This Digital Innovation Lab could also become the epic centre of research scholars and thought leaders from across India from academic institutions such as KTU, VIT, CUSAT, BITS Pilani etc. We could create a transformational impact on the innovation ecosystem in Kerala through this digital technology hub as we pivoted ourselves to the lean startup culture and agile program management methods. Looking forward to your views and thoughts on this journey !

Quantum Computing Architectures : A quick reference compilation for software engineers

When we enter the realm of quantum computing from the theoretical foundations, we encounter the enchanting world of complex algebra and quantum physics. The symbols and notions may look quite bewildering for a software engineer. I have encountered this during my numerous sessions on Quantum Computing for Software Engineers and Enterprise Architects. Based on this experience, I have put together a collection of essential building blocks of a Quantum Computer from a few useful architectural diagrams. Most of these diagrams are quite accessible and available for everyone in the internet. I have organised them in a logical and structured manner. These diagrams provide a layer wise and component based view of Quantum Computing Architectures. This is presented recently in the Women Who Code #WWC #Bangalore Chapter MeetUp held in VMWare on November 2018 for an engaging and interactive audience. 

Imagining Quantum Knowledge Proofs through Post Quantum Cryptography

Zero Knowledge Proofs are one of the path breaking inventions in the last 30 years of computer science.  Quantum Computing has been the bravest of the engineering efforts to build energy efficient and future forward computing infrastructure. Quantum Computing posits a lot of challenges to the classical computation based deterministic logic. In this context post quantum cryptography becomes an interesting value proposition to protect the current information technology infrastructure in the transition to the quantum computing world.

I have delivered a session on ‘Quantum Knowledge Proofs and Post QuantumCryptography’ in the Quantum Computing Knowledge Workshop organised by West Bengal State Government Information Technology Department in Kolkata. It was an amazing experience in an inspiring atmosphere conversing with entrepreneurs, academic experts and industry thought leaders about Quantum Computing Hardware, Quantum Computing SDKs, Quantum Key Distribution, Quantum Cryptography, QuantumBlockchain, Zero Knowledge Proofs etc.

Digital Trust Dialogues at Malabar Cybersecurity Summit 2018

Dear All, It is my pleasure and privilege to be a part of the MalabarCybersecuritySummit2018 organized by RedTeamHackerAcademy with eminent panelists in my favorite calicut city with a network of passionate entrepreneurs and innovators. Cybersecurity has become a wider landscape as the spectre of DigitalTrust and DataPrivacy has attained newer dimensions. Information architecture is no longer an a linear social network. It is entwined with digital identity and economic systems. We will talk about the new age information systems in the context of Blockchain #DigitalForensics QuantumComputing postquantumcryptography zeroknowledgeproofs differentialprivacy etc. All are invited to join us in this future forward dialogue !!

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.”
