I was introduced to Blockchain at a Moonwalk Project by my employer, Tata Communications last year. The word Blockchain drew my attention and I googled word Blockchain for the first time. Wow! the introductory information I came across helped me take a decision and I decided to volunteer and led a team of professionals from different functions to study Blockchain in non-fintech domain. We as a group of technology professionals further zeroed down and decided to study Blockchain fundamentals extensively and worked upon several use cases in Supply Chain & Healthcare industry.

Why should you build a Chatbot for your business
linkedin
April 13, 2018
Commands were the only medium to interact with a computer at the initial stage of the Computing era. Those were the days when we entered commands to compute. Many of the readers of this article would still remember quite a few MS-DOS 5.0 commands! Then came the WYSWIG/GUI era where we used mouse as an interface to give commands to the computer. WYSWIG era started with release of windows 3.1 and then it grew exponentially. Later came the era of gesture recognition and we used gestures to give commands to the computer/mobile device. Most of the millennials started computing in the WYSWIG era. Gesture recognition enabled humans to communicate with the machines and interact naturally without any mechanical devices i.e. the gesture we use to zoom into a touchscreen. Now is the era where we are using our natural language to interact with the computer/mobile device/bots. In this article, I would be sharing my views on the Chatbots.
