AI is often being linked to Industry 4.0 in a similar way to the invention of steam engines (First Industrial Revolution), Mass Production (Second Industrial Revolution) and the emergence of the digital age (Third Industrial Revolution). We’ve been roping in the benefits of AI on a regular basis and it feels so accessible for the consumers that even the small business leaders are trying to encash the advantages that AI will be offering to their businesses. With more and more number of companies developing AI applications, competition and adoption rates of AI technology has increased, which in turn drives down the costs, thus, making AI accessible to a wider range of businesses.

How Governments Have Used AI to Fight COVID-19

Article | March 29, 2020

Governments all around the globe are using artificial intelligence (AI) to help fight against the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The technology is being used for various different things, including speeding up the development of testing kits and treatments, giving citizens access to real-time data, and tracking the spread of the virus. South Korea’s government, one that is being touted as an example for how to combat the virus, pushed their private sector to start developing testing kits right away, immediately after the reports began to arrive out of China. One of those companies was Seoul-based molecular biotech company Seegene, which used AI to help quicken the process of developing testing kits. The company was able to submit its solution to the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) just three weeks after the scientists began their work. According to Chun Jong-Yoon, founder and chief executive of the company, the process would have taken at least two to three months without the use of AI.

Article | January 20, 2021

When you work with data, the most prominent challenge is picking the right manner to represent data in a readable format. With proper visualization, it becomes easier to convey the message present in the analyzed data. The best choice, in this case, is to use Data Visualization. By definition, data visualization is the graphical representation of the data and information. Using elements like maps, charts, graphs, etc. gives an easier view to understanding the patterns, trends, outliers, and performance. But, choosing the right tool for visualization can become difficult with the number of choices made available in the market. To save you from the trial and error method for finding the tool that works amazingly, here is the list of the best JavaScript libraries that are about to simplify the way you used to interact with data. Apart from these libraries, there are some tools for javascript which you can learn about and get more advanced with data visualization. Best JavaScript Libraries For Data Visualization For assisting you in getting started with data visualization in any application, here is the list of the top 5 libraries of JavaScript that you can get started with. D3js D3 (Data-Driven Documents) is among the most popular javascript libraries. It is not only limited to the visualization of data but also helps in data analytics, data utilities, animations, and geo. It works regardless of the JavaScript frameworks being used. D3 uses SVG, CSS, and HTML to create visualization as per web standards. Some of the benefits of using D3js include large dataset support, flexibility, and transition functionality. C3js Combination Chart or C3 is based on D3 and provides reusable chart libraries for applications. C3 offers a class to each element to help in defining a custom style that can later extend structure from D3. One of the major benefits of using C3js is that you can even update the rendered chart. ReCharts Similar to C3, ReCharts also uses D3 while expressing declarative components. Being lightweight and rendering on SVG elements, it helps in creating stunning charts. The library consists of some beautiful chart examples. Moreover, the charts here can also be customized according to needs. It is great for static charts but can lag with multiple animations. With an intuitive API, it becomes highly powerful and responsive. CanvasJS Canvas is an HTML5 and JavaScript chart library that’s easy to use. It smoothly runs on different platforms with 100,000+ data points. It comes with four default themes that can be greatly suitable for different conditions. Canvas charts provide high performance, fast developer support, and do not depend on other libraries. Highcharts Based on SVG JS library charts, Highcharts is quite popular among large organizations. Highcharts comes with the entire ecosystem for various project templates. It is even compatible with old browsers. Even the non-developers can use it with ease because of its interactive chart editor. It is being used by popular brands like Microsoft. Conclusion With the help of these javascript libraries, you will find it easy to present a large amount of data visually. What’s more, these will work with any framework. If you are a non-developer and still want data visualization in your application, then you can easily hire developers with relevant experience out there.

Make Microlearning More Effective By Using Chatbots

Article | February 18, 2020

If I ask you, "What is the most popular format for microlearning?" your response would most likely be "videos." For most of us, videos have become synonymous with microlearning. Interesting videos with the right storyline, engaging graphics, and optimal speed can be a great microlearning aid. But even when they come with a lot of benefits, videos are hard to maintain and update frequently. Considering this challenge, can you think of an easier approach that can be considered for developing microlearning? Personally, I learn well through Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). Short questions and precise answers can make learning really effective. Owing to technology advancement, we can now create chatbots to consume nuggets of information in a question-and-answer format. A learner can ask a question and get a quick short answer at the point of need. These bots can be updated easily for frequently changing content and changes can be displayed to learners immediately.
