Dynamics of Digital Identity : Emergent Properties in the context of Blockchain based Experiments
Collaborate
January 22, 2019
Digital identity itself is a notion with semiotic and semantic resonance to the concept of timestamped record with immutable ledger based storage, retention, discovery and retrieval. This article is thus a deeper enquiry into the social archetypes, information architecture and knowledge collective that constitute a digital identity as a semiotic expression and semantic category. It helps us to position digital identity and its emergent properties in the wider spectrum of web 3.0 ( semantic web ) and decentralised and distributed digital economy.

As proof of concepts and proof of technologies are getting created, Blockchain technology is unravelling the trust deficit in the digital business models across industries and verticals. In this context, Blockchain technology has become the litmus test for the sustainability of a lot of emergent business networks and corporate consortiums. The very effort for Blockchain implementation in various sectors such as retail, supplychain, energy trading, logistics, etc. are exposing the silos and disconnects in the way the transaction management systems and information systems are implemented for decades. When we try to implement decentralisation and smart contracts across various corporate and business ledgers, it is opening up numerous design and operational challenges.

Generation of social business insights by fractal analysis
IBM
February 27, 2018
Generating a social business insight is provided. An analysis parameter is selected. The analysis parameter represents a characteristic of a plurality of entities. A first data stream is retrieved. The first data stream is associated with a first entity of the plurality of entities and includes data from at least a CRM platform, a media platform, or a company asset database. A second data stream is retrieved. The second data stream is associated with a second entity of the plurality if entities and includes data from the media platform. A fractal analysis is performed based on the first data stream, the second data stream, and the analysis parameter. A fractal map is generated, where the fractal map depicts a relationship between the first data stream and the second data stream.

Cross Domain Adaptation of Bloom Filters
IBM
November 10, 2016
A system for cross-domain adaptation includes an analysis module, a set configuration module, a set multiplexer, a scalable bloom filter, a mapping module, and an aggregation module. The cross-domain adaptation system may allow for bloom filter adaptation across industries and domains with minimal increases in necessary hardware and consequentially minimal increases in power consumption and cost of area. A method for multi-domain adaptation in datasets includes performing multi-domain semantic analysis on a set of data, providing two complementary domain adaptive sets, processing the complementary domain adaptive sets to provide a multi-fractal representation of the dataset, processing the multi-fractal representation of the dataset with a scalable bloom filter to provide two filtered domain adaptive sets, providing a bijective holomorphic map of the filtered domain adaptive sets, and processing the bijective holomorphic map to provide multi-domain insight aggregator output. A computer program product corresponding to the method is also disclosed.

AI - Blockchain - IoT Convergence Special Mention at IOT World Congress
IOT World Congress
June 25, 2018
What will happen when these three technologies act jointly and coordinate in the same environment? For experts in data science and cognitive computing such as Gokul Alex, AI will constitute the brain which will make the decisions set to manage the industrial production of the future, IoT will act as the backbone of the connected society and blockchain will establish an impregnable data exchange chain between them.

Alex points out that the convergence of these three great technologies means blockchain will manage the extraordinary potential of AI. “IoT will help to transform the potential of blockchain into effective connectivity networks, while the concurrence of AI, IoT and blockchain will encourage the creation of synergies in the working environments of digital economies, converting the fourth industrial revolution into a reality. Robotics will also play a leading role in this confluence, once AI has transformed its operations into more fluid and transparent processes for both humans and machines.”

Quantum Computing | Gokul Alex & Rajesh | Developer Weekend 2017
Developer Weekend
December 04, 2017
Developer Weekend is a Not For Profit initiative to bring awareness about the upcoming technologies such as Machine Learning, Virtual Reality, Chatbots etc and aim to spread knowledge and awareness about technologies of the future while solving problems of local communities.

We believe that people should have equal opportunity to learn about the things that run the world - regardless of where they come from, where they live, or how "modern" their cities are! Knowledge shouldn't stop with steel-and-glass skyscrapers and carefully carved neighborhoods. The true potential of knowledge and technology can be harvested only when it is allowed to flow down and seep through the deepest sections of the society, making them equally empowered as anyone else, and with the support of the developer community and the local Government, we aim to help even the last man to increase their awareness about the developments in this GigaHertz fast-moving field.
