On International Women’s Day 2018, it is inspiring to see that more and more women are taking control of their narrative and are able to set their own terms. This truly embodies the theme #PressforProgress, which calls for increased gender inclusivity and parity in our society. We have indeed come a long way. Every day we hear several stories wherein women have taken a strong stand and defied many odds to win historic battles in their lives and careers.
Now-a-days when somebody talks about IoT, applications that comes to your mind would be smart home or smart city, geo-positioning and smart fitness devices. These may seem quite exciting for the general public, but for a technologist, the question becomes what to explore next and play with?
Lately, I have read several contradictory articles on Artificial Intelligence (AI). Some have trepidation that machines will replace human, others predict that technology is here to work for us and not against us. Both frontiers have their own valid arguments, fostered by numbers and statistics, some which are difficult to negate.
Gone are the days when software development was about building monolithic applications. Such traditional applications that were built as single units are fast becoming obsolete as more applications are deployed to the cloud. Any change made to a small part of one of these traditional apps required the entire monolithic app to be rebuilt and deployed.
The Internet of Things (IoT) connects smart objects that can sense and manage our environments, be they homes, vehicles, factories, supply chains, cities or power grids. IoT objects transfer data over networks using IP address connectivity. The IoT market is growing rapidly and will to impact many aspects of life and work in the coming years. Thanks to IoT, a huge volume of data is being generated and transferred across networks. Ensuring this data is reliable, secure and authentic is perhaps the most critical challenge facing the growth of the IoT market.
