Edge computing has long been seen as a space to watch out for and the space with potential implications across industries. Let’s explore some reasons why and what’s at stake from the business side of things.
We’ll take a step forward if there’s potential to invest/startup in this space.
Edge Computing is a decentralised architecture to bring processing geographically closer to the user as opposed to traditional data centres which could be, sometimes, across continents
Some of the prominent features of using Edge Computing include:
Throwback to April 2019, I was in my last semester of undergraduate at IIT Guwahati.
Most of the memories being recollected were usually on the lines of undergraduate adventures. But with the release of the acclaimed “Kota Factory” series, the topics of discussion shifted back in time by another year to the years of JEE preparation to get into IITs.
While the series was good, I couldn’t relate to it completely as someone who studied at Kota did (Duh!). …
It’s commonly observed that people would want to hear about Talent, Hardwork from people who’re at the pinnacle of their game.
I don’t consider myself near that, but I’ve few insights onto how Talent-Hardwork and other factors play a role in attaining proficiency at skills in life.
To ensure it’s not like a transcript of a Ted Talk or some compilation of motivational examples and quotes, I’ve taken a different approach to visualise my understanding of these factors in my life.
Hard work is one of the most frequently mentioned words behind someone’s success. One needs to put in the…
A talented base, kneaded with years of preparation and a dash of luck — These probably went into the making of an IITian.
Some might have had a skewed amount of talent or hard work, nevertheless, they’re there.
IITs are a group of institutions primarily focused on imparting some of the best technical, engineering knowledge in the country.
Over 6 decades of heritage and an ever-expanding list of these colleges have turned them from a knowledge imparting temples of learning to a well-recognised name.
I’m not sure how long this has been the case, but for at least last decade…
Addiction is a psychological and physical inability to stop consuming a chemical, drug, activity, or substance, even though it is causing psychological and physical harm
This is how medical websites define addiction. We’ve heard several stories of prominent celebrities laying their life being addicted to drugs, alcohol etc.
These addictions are well-documented through social documentaries, pop-culture and general perception of society.
While this won’t be yet another article on substance abuse, but rather a take on something which has got several people addicted to it — Technology
With the quarantine period kicking in, a feeling of having all the time…
It’s not frequently in life that the things fall in place for better.
Recruiting for the first time from my college, I had no alumni to connect and discuss the role.
For someone who had been involved in case studies, finance and economics for a major part of his college life, taking up an irrelevant, developer job would’ve been a weird shift.
But this was the choice I took during my campus placements — let’s take up any job as long as it’s at a reputable firm.
Let’s not go into debating my decision, that’s a different line altogether.
The trolley problem is a classical case of an ethical dilemma.
According to Wikipedia, here is the problem:
There is a runaway trolley barreling down the railway tracks. Ahead, on the tracks, there are five people tied up and unable to move. The trolley is headed straight for them. You are standing some distance off in the train yard, next to a lever. If you pull this lever, the trolley will switch to a different set of tracks. However, you notice that there is one person on the sidetrack. You have two options:
Two months ago, while making my way through the dreaded Bengaluru traffic along with my friend, we had a conversation.
Me: “ Hey! Could you please check if we have to head straight to Koramangala?”
She: “Yeah, sure. Hold on!”
She takes her phone out carefully, as I slow down to not go the wrong way at the diversion.
She: “Ok, Google! Navigate me to Koramangala.”
A slight beep and the map opens up with a route highlighted.
She: “Dude, Google is suggesting to take the left turn, for it will be a faster route.”
I was taken aback for…
What if I told you that believing that you’re rich is necessary step towards being rich.
That’s how the book begins its first chapter.
For a rational millennial, I consider myself to be, such a statement was a serious turnoff.
Since last year, I was on a personal mission to make reading books a daily habit. I have been fairly successful reading books across genres in the past few months.
“Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill was one of those books which grabbed my attention. …
