You’re practicing social distancing. Great! You’ve become a model for good hand hygiene, and you’re keeping those hands away from your face. But you’re probably wondering if there are things you should be doing to boost your immunity and health as well.

Lifestyle factors may also determine if you’re going to get sick or remain healthy. One of those factors is physical activity (PA).

We all know about cryptocurrency at this point. Bitcoin started the trend in 2009 and has increased in value from just 21 INR ($0.3) a decade ago to 40 Lakhs INR($55,000) as I write. This incredible growth has prompted other companies to follow suit, and now there are a whole host of altcoins to invest in.

Alt-coins are any other cryptocurrencies that are not bitcoins. Take a look at any crypto stock site, you’ll see plenty of them. At the time of writing, Monero is 30k INR ($400). Ethereum is a bit over 1.69L INR($2200). And Dogecoin is just $0.04…

A computer program anybody can talk to with normal language.

No matter what type of chatbot it is, they all have a similar purpose — to take regular human language input, understand what is being said and to provide a relevant, correct answer based on the knowledge it has. Chatbots excel at completing repetitive tasks and work around the clock. They can work alone or alongside humans, and are effective at completing 60–90% of an average human team’s workload, depending on the use case. They are also very effective at lead generation, as a conversational company wiki, for first-stage interviews…


Today's buzzwords are Augmented reality, Virtual reality, amongst the many others. But what are they exactly, and why do they matter? In this article, I plan to answer some of those questions, and also give you a little sneak-peek on mixed reality.

The terms “virtual reality” and “augmented reality” get thrown around a lot these days, thanks to the resurgence of VR headsets heralded by the Oculus Rift and the use of AR apps and games like Pokémon Go.

Recently, there has been a lot of fuss about the word Learning. We always hear about machine learning, deep learning, neural networks, etc. But what does this really mean? Did scientists find a way to create a brain-like component and implement it inside machines? Is it just a marketing word used to sell software and services? Are machines going to take over the world? What on earth is this about?

Well… do not worry, we are still not there… yet! In this article I will introduce what learning really is, and how scientists teach computers to achieve human-like tasks, or…
