Double Century of Citations – Review on AI/ML Algorithms

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.

Impact of Corporate Social Responsibility on Reputation – Insights from Tweets on Sustainable Development Goals by CEOs

International Journal of Information Management, Volume 48, October 2019, Pages 39-52

Abstract
Social media had been extensively used for communication and networking purposes among corporates. Literature indicates social media platforms had also been used by the firms for building relationship with different stakeholders (i.e. customers, employees, investors and neighbouring communities). But there exists a gap in literature, whether social capital present on social media can be used for building corporate reputation (CR) in the society. Literature indicates corporate social responsibility (CSR) impacts CR. Therefore this study explores how CSR messages on social media impacts CR. For this study assumption was made that all the concerns and issues raised by Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the social responsibilities of the CEOs. The study tries to explore this gap by analysing the tweets posted by two group of CEOs, i.e. CEOs in top 200 fortune companies and top 100 social influencer CEOs.

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.

Digital India – Reflections and Practice | Springer

This book offers a multidisciplinary resource on digital government, while specifically focusing on its role within the emerging market of India. The Government of India (GoI) is concentrating on transforming India under the Digital India initiative. In order to do so, it has emphasized three core areas: (1) Computing infrastructure as a  utility to every citizen; (2) Governance and services on demand; and (3) Digital empowerment of citizens. The chapters in this book address issues surrounding these areas, highlighting concepts such as knowledge societies, urban operations and logistics, issues in managing emergent Information Communication Technologies (ICTs), and also smart analytics for urbanization. The chapters contribute to the theory, practice and policy for a “Digital India.” The book captures lessons, knowledge, experiences (about challenges, drivers, antecedents, etc.) and best practices emerging from implementation of various projects. While the book is dedicated to a “Digital India,” this book can also be valuable resource for public administrators, government officials and researchers in other emerging markets and developing countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America where similar socio-political and economic conditions exist.
