In recent times, a Stanford University study had published the names of researchers who are in the top 2% in their field. In this study, researchers across discipline have been classified into 22 scientific fields and 176 sub-fields. We have further segregated the authors based on their affiliation to Indian Universities. The complete study is downloadable from Plos Biology Continue reading “Indian Researchers who are in Top 2% in their fields – Stanford Study”

From story teller to researcher to best seller: the journey continues! Got a fair bit of pleasant surprise today to know that our case study on Tech Talk became the best selling case study in IVEY cases globally for the academic year 2019-2020. Tech Talk started as a blog when I was doing my masters around 2007. What a walk through the memory lane, story teller to researcher and back again!
Abstract: In this digital era, data is the new oil and artificial intelligence (AI) is the new electricity, which is needed in different elements of operations management (OM) such as manufacturing, product development, services and supply chain. This study explores the feasibility of AI utilization within an organization on six factors such as job-fit, complexity, long-term consequences, affect towards use, social factors and facilitating conditions for different elements of OM by mining the collective intelligence of experts on Twitter and through academic literature. The study provides guidelines for managers for AI applications in different components of OM and concludes by presenting the limitations of the study along with future research directions.

The NIRF rankings for 2020 are out. In Management, the rankings are led by IIM Ahmedabad, Bangalore and Kolkata. The top IITs in the top 10 rankings are Kharagpur and Delhi. A comparison of the performance across different criteria is provided in the snippet below for the top 25 institutions.
The first double century is always special. This is a review article I developed in 2014 after I joined IITD and it got finally published in Expert Systems with Applications (Impact Factor >4, ABS Rank 3) journal in 2016. This article I developed while developing content for my analytics course so that I could explain extremely complex somewhat popular/emerging AI/ML algorithms in the simplest of ways, and non-mathematically to my students. Thankful for all the support.
The top positions are led by IIM Ahmedabad and Bangalore, as these institutes break into the bracket of 51-100 ranks. IIT Delhi, IIT Mumbai and IIM Calcutta form the second bracket in the QS Rankings in the Management category.
