IPv6: The Next Generation of Internet Protocol

ImageIn order to grow the world wide web, the society of internet paraphernalia is coming out with IPv6. It’s aim is to allow internet to seep in other devices and hence increasing the number of possible addresses. But moving from IPv4 to IPv6 ain’t that easy, plus the main question looms on transition costs and the time taken. After all, the internet is severing  2.5 billion people and 11 billion devices across the world and we are running out of space.

Although, most of the OS does support IPv6 but routers and servers have no provisions of supporting it. Which would further make the connection between the devices nearly impossible.

If we remember, CNN in 2010 did forecast about the limitations of IPv4 and it seems they were correct.

Availability Does Not Mean Productivity: A Pervasive Corporate Problem

Does remaining available for clients or teams 24×7 gives better productivity? Or does it imply we are slaves to the conditioned reflex?

Getting available round the clock tethers the overall output. Majority believes that using smartphones enhances efficiency but as a matter of fact, it’s the other way round. People who prefer to have a constant touch with clients and/or team overlooks the space that they otherwise must give to their own personal lives.

Acquiring the habit of checking emails regularly at the cost of one’s personal space doesn’t help at all. On the contrary, the person wont be able to give quality time to family. Ain’t that a priority too in life?

Technology that has propelled us to work round the clock. Emerging competition from nearly all professional fields have prompted us to framed a system where we are providing 24×7 support to our customers and teams. Till some extent, we are counting the same as our USP. But is it truly helping in channelizing the efforts for growing?

Watson will Now Help Oncologists in Cancer Research

This piece is an extension of my previous post, on artificial intelligence where I gave li’l bit info on IBM’s super computing technology output, Watson.

Oncologists at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) will now make use of this computational wizardry for “individualized cancer diagnostic and treatment recommendations”. It will commute the info from the center’s case studies & database.

Exploding the conventional way of disseminating the most recent therapeutic advances, Watson is hitting its first agreement with MSKCC. However, IBM had a similar partnership with Columbia University, which, somehow didn’t materialize.

Will ‘Artificial Intelligence’ replace ‘Search’ in the coming future?

The beginning of 90s was an era when the geeks thought of giving a new dimension to search, START was born then; and later in 2009, WolframAlpha was introduced. However, this new product too had its limitations with respect to search. It wasn’t able to deliver multi-faceted inquiries. For instance, it could fetch data fort “Theodore Roosevelt” but was unable to decipher result for “Edith Carrow’s husband”.

IBM came up with Watson, a computing system with deep analytic technology that defeated humans – Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter – on Jeopardy last year in February.

Does this imply that ‘Artificial Intelligence’ will replace ‘Search’ in the coming future?

Social Media Ends the Era of Cold Calling

ImageSellers are communicators and what else than the prevailing vogue of social media would suit them the best. The growing craze of social media among the consumers would act as a boon for these sellers. People are aggregating on these social sites and are sharing views on nearly all products they have or plan to own.

In order to tap this pie of the market, corporates are coming up with their internal portals and wikis. This has helped the sales rep to keep themselves updated with the trend and/or product issues that their customers feel. Consumers are receiving a real time feedback from the organization, which in turn is giving them a feel good factor.

In a way, the consumers too are becoming a part of production house for these organizations. They are helping the companies in bringing about the required changes in the products that are being offered to them.

Social Media: Channelizing Efforts into Newer Opportunities

Social media has more under its wings than the obvious networking and brand building part. Corporates make use of this new wave to network around clients and customers, which further leads to brand building. LinkedIn started in 2003, it was targeted around professional networking amongst employers & colleagues. However, the career bios on its site attracted potential new hires, which gave the site a choice to work on the paradigm of offering job change to its networkers.

The ‘career bios’ is the asset in LinkedIn which gave a slight direction to its workings amongst the niche but what about others which ain’t that serious site/portal, like Twitter, Facebook, Quora & Econsultancy. As a whole, these sites do not have any strong asset except the fact that they all provide web space for networking. Quite similar to the previous site, these sites are also turning table in favor of job hunters. Greg Meyer’s case would suit well in the current scenario.
