How do Indian Institutions compare with the Global Leaders

Recently I had a very interesting chat with a close friend. Why do some of the best Indian Institutes never rank among the top universities in global rankings. What stops us to work harder and achieve global rankings. Why do Indian institutions fare badly in research? I was kind of perplexed in responding how can I explain it to someone outside the ecosystem. The challenge is that I should explain this in less than 500 words, since readers inside the domain of academics, know already about our shortcomings, but readers outside our system may get lost if we explain it in too much of details.  But more importantly, I also suffer from a lack of time to pen down my thoughts in a more detailed manner.

Big data with cognitive computing: A review for the future

Abstract : Analysis of data by humans can be a time-consuming activity and thus use of sophisticated cognitive systems can be utilized to crunch this enormous amount of data. Cognitive computing can be utilized to reduce the shortcomings of the concerns faced during big data analytics. The aim of the study is to provide readers a complete understanding of past, present and future directions in the domain big data and cognitive computing. A systematic literature review has been adopted for this study by using the Scopus, DBLP and Web of Science databases. The work done in the field of big data and cognitive computing is currently at the nascent stage and this is evident from the publication record. The characteristics of cognitive computing, namely observation, interpretation, evaluation and decision were mapped to the five V’s of big data namely volume, variety, veracity, velocity and value. Perspectives which touch all these parameters are yet to be widely explored in existing literature.

Acquiring 10 licenses / registrations ensures that the business is legal

Many small business owners are unaware of the license procedures that are required for operating their business. The license for a business depends on various factors like the type of the business, the regulations, and policies imposed by the government and the area in which they are planning to start the business. The license is a legal permit given by the local government to the company that indicates that it runs an authorized business and it is not only applicable to the new business, but even an existing company has to renew their application after a particular period. There are some businesses that require more than one license to operate their business legally in that state which is time-consuming and expensive, even though it is a tedious and frustrating process, obtaining all the legal documents and certificates enables the business to operate without any issues. Because if a company is found in non-compliance, they have to pay penalties and they are chances even for permanent closure of the business.

Risk Management Approaches

This is a study where we attempt to explore different dimensions of risk that a consumer of any service or product may face over an interaction between the service / product vendor / provider and the consumer. Results are descriptive statistics based on findings of an empirical study. Different dimensions of these risk, which are defined in scientific literature provide different interaction effect at the point of decision making and service consumption. That is why it is important to understand their dynamics when service science is being explored. Continue reading “Risk Management Approaches”
