Innovation at work

A true example of innovation and entrepreneurship at work.

Ethnographic study, passion, perceiverance, first pilot customer, continuous learning and innovation, customer delight surveys and empathy to achieve the intended outcome👍

The video is in one of the regional languages in India called “Telugu”. The innovator/entrepreneur featured in this video not conventional educated and spoke in his native language. He invented and innovated a machine for the benefit of his own community of weavers in this part of the world. He received several awards in India and also his life story was recently released as a feature film.

Nature’s Fury

This video shared by a friend today reminds me of watching the movie Twister in 90’s. Not sure about the authenticity of this video but,

yeah.. nature’s fury…

it is tough to handle when people mess too much with it.

No personal wealth, health or the nations GDP, economy, borders and military can save.

It knows no boundaries and has no partiality towards any religion, region, caste, creed and gender.

It respects no political boundaries and doesn’t need to be politically correct.

Everything that we keep giving too much credence to the human progress scientific or social is an eyewash when the nature is furious and it will do what it needs to do…

Artificial General Intelligence

With the current basis of our science and technology, Artificial Intelligence in any foreseeable time will only address the augmented and narrow intelligence aspect.

We will further enhance the capability of human sensory power for the regular and challenged of the world. And enhance value in niche areas. This may also be the best use of the current state of AI work in the world.

For the true Artificial General Intelligence, the roots are to be found in Philosophy, Spiritual Sciences. Most likely in ancient scriptures of wisdom. It needs for us in this generation of scientists and technologists to shed the false ego and study those scriptures keeping aside the religious and cultural affiliations.

We haven’t even fully cracked the nature vs nurture puzzle. Genetic knowledge, Morals, Ethics,Reinforced learning, expert systems incl parents to teachers to life in general…

In my humble opinion, Artificial General Intelligence is not just another technological problem to solve but its about understanding human and leads to/by wisdom. It is not going to happen anytime soon with the current direction.

AGI is the ultimate pursuit but i believe the world will explore and benefit more from augmented / narrow intelligence in the next few decades.

History -vs- ‘His’story

Today i received a message extolling the virtues of Punjab and as a tribute to its great son, Maharaja Ranjit Singh on his birthday (13th Nov 1780). Maharaja Ranjit Singh is certainly one of the great sons of this Karma Bhoomi called Bharat. The thing that irked me in the message was a reference to how king Porus of Punjab dared to stop Sikander in his world conquest. It was mainly about the use of the words Sikander and Porus, since both are

Thinking of Toilets

The famous Bill Gates shared a post recently on LinkedIn that the reinvented toilets are a part of 6 billion dollars annual opportunity for companies that are first to market. And also that they have a potential to save millions of lives. Impressive, huh?

Thinking of toilets:

In recent times, for myriad reasons, toilets have found a huge fan base. They seem to inspire/break love stories

Sardar, Operation Polo and My Grandmother

Today Prime Minister of India is unveiling a tall statue of a tall leader, Iron man of India, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. There are several discussions on his legacy.

Sardar, no doubt, is the architect of modern administratively integrated geographical India and deserves a huge respect from every Indian.

Everytime i read about Sardar, i reminisce my childhood. As a child, i grew up listening to many first hand personal stories of India’s freedom struggle

ॐ त्र्यम्बकं यजामहे
सुगन्धिं पुष्टिवर्धनम् ।
उर्वारुकमिव बन्धनान्
मृत्योर्मुक्षीय मामृतात् ॥

ఓం త్రయంబకం యజామహే
సుగంధిం పుష్టి వర్ధనం
ఉర్వారుకమివ బంధనాన్
మృత్యోర్ ముక్షీయ మామృతాత్

ఉర్వారుక మివ బంధనం అంటే…..

ఇసుకలో ఆడుకొంటున్న పిల్లల్ని చూస్తుంటాం. అద్భుతంగా గుడి కడతారు. తీరికగా అలంకారాలు అద్దుతారు. తోచినంతసేపు హాయిగా ఆడుకుంటారు. పొద్దు వాలేటప్పటికి, ఆ కట్టడాలన్నింటినీ చటుక్కున కూలదోస్తారు. కిలకిల నవ్వులతో
