Is there any risk factor involved?

The concerns raised when high-tech Henn na Hotel in Japan where robots are in service, reported that its robots in the room can be hacked. The questions raised for the security of other machines as well. 

However, there is no reason to worry about hacking. Food data usually collect data on Who bought what, what time of day it was, where were they, what was the weather outside, how much did they spend.

But attention should be paid to how the data is used in the food industry. The consumers are not aware of what they are signing up for. 

Food demand is increasing with the increasing population. The food suppliers are under pressure to serve the demands.  The companies are adopting robotics for countless reasons. The food robotics market is projected to see lucrative growth.

Roadmap of 5G infrastructure

5g Infrastructure

Multiplication of smartphones has led to the data traffic obstructing the working of existing networks. The obstruction is leading to the demand for high range bandwidth. The introduction of high-end technology, fifth-generation(5G) communication network is believed to curb the speed

barriers and allow faster data transmission.

To overcome traffic and security issues, the market is expected to build high-end infrastructure for 5G rollout. The construction of the 5G infrastructure had to be built in certain standards. Currently, various organizations such as Open Network Foundation (ONF), 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) and International Telecommunication Union (ITU) are discussing the norms and spectrum for the 5G network.

According to the recent market research report, North America will be leading regions across the world in terms of market share owing to the increasing need to ensure the seamless availability of mobile data across the region. 

Several factors are leading to the growth of the 5G market. The increasing demand for sky-high speed, repositioning of communication networks from hardware to software and soaring data traffic has enabled marketers to take a step forward to build 5G infrastructure that will increase the flexibility of their users. 

However, some challenges can hamper the building of 5G infrastructures such as high cost, device availability, deployment of small cells, spectrum allocation and fiber backhaul availability.

5G network will have small cell concepts such as femtocells or microcell that will transmit high data by covering less number of users under each cell. Small cell deployment will be an expensive business as it needs to cover a large region. Also, several operators are not able to deploy it due to issues faced by local authorities and regulatory bodies. 

5G network is a cobweb of gigabytes leading to traffic, it thus needs to reform the entire spectrum accompanied by up-gradation of architecture. 

According to Heavy Reading’s Mobile Operator 5G Capex, total expenditure on 5G infrastructure is expected to reach $88 billion (€78.4 billion) by 2023.

5G will see a high-cost involvement with a completely new backhaul. However, this will drive the industry to develop new technology that can efficiently expand the 5G infrastructure. Researchers are already exploring particular technologies related to 5G to serve for the deliberate use of 5G infrastructure.

Tata,Infosys and Wipro to offer AI Platforms in business operations

Artificial-IntelligenceThe three IT giants are all set to invest in Artificial Intelligence platforms to improve delivery of solutions and drive faster growth from their clients. The companies are also trying to provide AI platforms separately to clients now which was earlier only a part of solutions.
All three companies are running their AI platform under specific trademarks. Tata consultancy services has Ignio, Wipro has HOLMS and Infosys has Nia. Out of the three only Ignio by TCS has an independent revenue of about 60 million. It’s been reported that TCS aims to drive this number to 100 million by the end of this financial year. Infosys Nia is being implemented across a wide range of already existing service lines.

According to analysts, Wipro’s HOLMS has already been applied to about 350 clients out of the company’s total of 1250 clients.
The automation platform and the AI system help in detecting abnormalities and defects and also in invoice processing.Artificial intelligence is now in use to provide solutions to difficult and complex business problems.

In one of the cases Infosys Nia launched CollectEdge to help banks and credit unions to conduct collection processes.It has been a close competition between the three platforms as Ignia appears to be better at execution while Nia has been having vague results. Wipro Holms has a strong technological infrastructure backing.But since the requirement for AI solutions is still low, the companies have to promote usage of the same.
Even though some parts of the platforms created by these companies are AI, much of it is still regulated on rules and instruction programming. “The Indian service providers are taking advantage of a key change in the market where IP is now becoming much more important and clients expect and reward service providers that bring some of their own IP to the table,” said Bendor-Samuel, CEO of an IT advisory firm.

With Wipro aiming to increase the use of HOLMES, Wipro CEO Abidali Neemuchwala in a recent interview said “Now, the person (Rohit Adlakha) who runs Wipro HOLMES is also my CIO, so there will be more deployment. Over 15% of the work is being done by bots in fixed price projects,” Even though it appears that Infosys has not officially divulged Nia’s independent revenue, Atul Soneja, the SVP and Global Head of Infosys Nia, said it was a revenue generating product with targets.

“Infosys Nia has been implemented at several Infosys client organizations to generate deep insights and discover new opportunities to optimize and automate complex business processes,” Soneja said.

In this case, Amazon’s Alexa is a common example given in the smart Chatbot industry. 

Since it can communicate with hundreds and thousands of customers at once, a smart Chatbot single-handedly answers different queries of consumers and help deliver success. It will be exciting to see the research and development projects in the field of data science are helping the Chatbots industry to take it the next level in the market.  


Blockchain development ensures the safety of Data

blockchainBlockchain Development Security has taken up a crucial place in the modification of security measures. As a result, more and more companies are adapting to the broader security technology measures.

The blockchain based security has been a remarkable thing in recent times, which most of the blockchain development companies have paid to witness most. The information gathered on blockchain is continually stored separate, within every network which it gets connected to.

For instance, if anyone wants to alter any part of the code, say for example a hacker, one single change cannot trigger mass changes. The system must be individually enhanced. Further, most exchanges and data are coded and encrypted. All of these make the use of blockchain a safer option in protecting mass data, as it does not store more data at a single point of source.

Below processes help in making Blockchain a remarkable aspect for security purpose.


Blockchain helps in the creation of many series of computer network chains, which is a loop is a peer to peer network domains, which is difficult in influencing or even exploiting. This is a massive ledger of encrypted information, which is further made available to many parties who wish to get involved.


In response to peer connectivity, most of the information of blockchain has been readily verified. This means that once the transaction begins to take place, the digital ledger confirms many details within minutes and ensures the data is available for viewing in connected networks. The data is in sense made public in the fact that it has been embedded within the network domain.

 Encryption Process

The data is encrypted makes block chain security more enhanced. The network participants who are involved have specific keys which play the unique role of the digital signature. Further, the alteration can render the signature invalid and it also sends the notification to the party involved. Thus, alerts are issues at earliest before a major threat is made.

Peers and Networks:

Every network participant on overall gains voluntary membership with no adequate pressure to joining. This is incentivized in terms of chance to win bitcoins. Therefore, in simple terms, every network is a manager in the blockchain ledger. Further, they help in verifying the data and receive a digital copy of block chain. This is made as soon one joins the program
