Notes from SCIT 19th National Seminar : Amalgamating IoT and Big Data

19th National Seminar from Symbiosis Centre for Information Technology – SCIT titled IoT and Big Data : Leverage or Adversary to Data Analytics was indeed a life time experience and a cherishing experience for me. It is a rare opportunity to meet MBA students presenting enterprising ideas about Decentralised Agriculture Marketplaces and sharing thoughts about Universal Basic Income and clarifying concepts about Quantum Computing and Algorithmic Business Models.

Moderating an eminent panel of Industry thought leaders with academic erudition and implementation insights from world class organisations was a challenging task and a learning experience. Sourabh Mukharjee from Accenture, Dr. Sheela Siddappa from Bosh, Dr. Pradeep Bilurkar from Barclays, Kapil Gandhi from Ernst and Young were our fellow panelist. The event started with an inspiring inagural address from the director of #SCIT, Dr. Dhanya Pramod. It was followed by an illuminating and thought provoking keynote address by the Chief Strategy Officer of Fractal Analytics, Sameer Dhanrajani.

In the panel discussion we covered a wide spectrum of topics ranging from evolution of IoT and Big Data, Cloud based Data Integration approaches for IoT, IoT Analytics applications, Industry solutions and emerging use cases, emerging challenges around IoT Big Data landscape, need for standardisation, need for ontologies around IoT Data Sets, career opportunities in IoT Big Data Analytics area etc. Altogether it was a dream journey to an inspiring academic institution. I wish all the very best for this institution and its committed faculty members and passionate students !

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.
