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 Integration and STEM : Building Digital Economies at Scale !

TKM Institute of Management has organized a national conference on Innovation focusing on the impact of applied innovation in Science, Technology, Engineering and Management. It was a great opportunity to connect with innovative entrepreneurs and academicians and a lot of passionate and creative students from colleges across Kerala.

I focused on the much needed convergence of innovative practices in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Management (STEAM) to build minimum viable concepts, minimum viable prototypes, minimum viable designs, minimum viable products and minimum viable commerce at scale. The concept of STEAM resonates we’ll with the concepts of lean methodology and innovation sprints.

We had an enlightened panel discussion after the Key Note sessions. Our panel comprised of Dr.Vinithkumar Nair, Professor from TKM Institute of Management, Nishant Nambiar, CEO of Inforich Technologies,  Dr. Arun Surendran, Strategic Director, Trinity College of Engineering and Geethu Sivakumar, CEO of PACE HighTech.

I could meet the leadership of the pioneering education consulting firm AAMC from Australia soon after this conference.

In conversation with Channel Iám on Bitcoin Trading and Investments in 2018

I had a curious conversation with Channel I’M / Channeliam on #Bitcoin investment and trading strategies for 2018. Never knew it will be a precursor to such an interesting time for bitcoin signals and global market economy as a whole. Interesting times indeed! There are ongoing debates about considering Bitcoin as a currency, commodity, and trading instrument for futures.

Is bitcoin a conventional currency ? no, it is not. It is a digital currency produced by the intellectual labor of a decentralised and self organised collective. Is it a conventional commodity ? no, it is not. It is a digital asset build from a social network of conventional commodities.

At the moment, global market economy is ever more interested in the #bitcoin signals as the correlation between conventional stocks and bitcoin is getting very close. Following articles in global financial journals and magazines are loud testimonials to this pulse.

It is loud and clear. Bitcoin has become the most dynamic and most social and most evolutionary financial machinery human kind has ever created. It has created a trust machine so massive that we have started using supercomputers to mine and monetise it.
