Whether 5G poses Health Risk?

Whether 5G Poses Health Risk?

                                                                           TRUTH VS HYPE

People’s Concern:

The electromagnetic radiation used by all mobile phone technologies has led some people to worry about increased health risks, including developing certain types of cancer

WHO Statement:

So, why people are worried?

  • More Antenna, Lesser height
  • Operation at Higher Frequency

More Antenna, Lesser height:

Higher density of Antenna may require lesser power compared to 4G

Operation at Higher Frequency:

5G operates in the frequency range of 2.7 GHz to 10 GHz. More frequency means more energy, so more energy. Obliviously, more energy means more harm to tissue and cells. But, still 5G spectrum is way below the ionizing spectrum of RF.  So, theoretically 5G does not posses any health risk as such.

But Why People are protesting?

One of the major reasons is the toxicology report by US department of health. As per research conducted by NTP(National Toxicology Program) of US Department of Health on Male and Female rat, it was found that there is a development of DNA damage and tumor formation when they are exposed to heavy dose of radiation.

NTP conducted two-year toxicology studies in rats and mice to help clarify potential health hazards, including cancer risk, from exposure to RFR like that used in 2G and 3G cell phones which operate within a range of frequencies from about 700–2700 megahertz (MHz). These were published as Technical Reports in November 2018.

A senior scientist on the study said “exposures used in the studies cannot be compared directly to the exposure that humans experience when using a cell phone”, even for heavy users.

Another senior scientist says “although some of the research suggests a statistical possibility of increased cancer risks for heavy users, the evidence to date for a causal relation is not sufficiently convincing to suggest the need for precautionary action”.

5G and 4G are different:

  • 5G operates at higher frequency, as a result it has low penetration. So, chances of damage of heart or brain. But may possess serious concern for skin if guidelines are not followed.
  • Further research in this field can conclude exact effects of 5G radiation on Human Body

Conclusion:

As per initial reports and research it can be concluded that 5G is safe if used as per International Guidelines.

How the Internet of Things Impacts Businesses and What to Do With It

The place of IoT in business has changed tremendously over the past few years, shifting from a “should we?” conversation in organizations to a “when will we?” one. While the benefits of IoT are widely understood, IoT adoption is not without its challenges. Companies want the insights IoT analytics offers, but do they have the teams and resources to implement? An enterprise may have enjoyed the outcome of a small IoT pilot, but can it scale it for widespread use?

The use of IoT in business is clearly growing. By 2030, more than 90% of all enterprises will adopt IoT,

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the ever-growing web of devices ranging from smartphones to sensor-equipped manufacturing robots that are interconnected via the internet. Thanks to this interconnection, they can send and receive data, which facilitates a wide range of actions in both everyday life and in business.

The Beneficial Impact of IoT on Businesses in 2020

Considering the explosion of IoT-connected devices, perhaps you’re wondering, “How does IoT affect business?” The short answer is, “In every way.”

Accessibility to big data sets and the autonomous collection and exchange of data mean that it will become easier to gain insights into things like customer behaviors and product performance. IoT will also facilitate the continuous optimization of business processes and even impact employee engagement and performance. In certain industries, IoT in business is already making it possible for systems to autonomously execute transactions in supply chains when certain conditions have been met.

In short, IoT will allow businesses to better help their customers and manage their workforces, as well as improve their products, services and processes.

How to Leverage IoT in Your Business

When it comes to how to use the Internet of Things in businesses, the key thing to remember is that new levels of communication and interconnectedness have significant payoffs for almost any business. That’s why the way in which each business decides to leverage the IoT within its respective industry and sector is an important choice. It’s not a one-size-fits-all approach, but rather a highly customized method of gaining a deeper understanding of enhancing and executing specific business objectives.

With this in mind, there are several key points or benefits from the IoT that many businesses can explore for their own individual plans for improvement:

  • Understand big data: The collection and subsequent analysis of big data can offer insights into many factors that are essential to the effective running of a business. First and foremost, it can provide insights into all-important market trends as well as product performance. You can leverage these insights to help inform your short- and long-term business strategies.
  • Engage each and every customer or client: The IoT can provide you with data about each individual customer so you can deliver personalized service. And with IoT devices connecting you to your consumer base, you can analyze data to better understand each stage of your customers’ purchasing cycles — from how they research to how they buy and even use your products and/or services. This will enable you to create more focused and effective marketing campaigns.
  • Remote workforce: Research shows that remote work is on the rise. With the IoT, the ability for your remote workforce to be even more connected to everything from files to inventory equals greater productivity and a wider range of tasks that can be accomplished remotely.
  • Expand your presence: From smarter marketing campaigns keeping you connected to your clients to better communications with all members of your workforce, the IoT allows your business to expand its presence both with consumers and employees. You will achieve levels of flexibility and speed that empower your presence while it expands.

Take Off With the IoT

Clearly, with the IoT and its business applications set to expand, you need an IT and communications partner that can guide you through the plethora of cutting-edge innovations so you can successfully leverage this new technology and the resulting data into your business model. That’s why you want Consolidated Technologies, Inc. looking to the future with your business in mind. We don’t just offer tech solutions — we understand the challenges of your business in order to deliver next-generation vision!

Internet of Business says:

Almost every aspect of our lives now generates data. Smart watches track each step we take and sense each beat of our heart. The smartphones in our pockets know our location at any moment, our hobbies, where we’re going on holiday, and what we’re considering buying.

Some of these insights benefit the customer, and some the product maker. Ultimately, we are all emerging into an Internet of Things (IoT) world that, for the most part, benefits everyone – aiding our day-to-day lives and keeping us connected to the things and people that are important to us.

The use of such technology in the business world is no different. IoT devices record and transfer data to monitor important processes, give us new insights, boost efficiency, and allow companies to make more informed decisions.

They tell organisations what’s really happening, rather than what they assume or hope is happening. And the reams of data they gather are grist to the mill for analytics and AI systems, which can identify patterns of use or behaviour that were previously hidden.

1 | Improved business insights & customer experience

Connected equipment in manufacturing, aviation, the supply chain, agriculture, healthcare, and many other industries, is creating more data streams and analytics potential, meaning that companies are gaining much greater insights into their business operations and how their customers use their products or services.

In the US, Amazon is employing advanced solution for its own physical Amazon Go store: its system detects products that have been moved, places them in a virtual cart, and knows once customers have left the premises.

2 | Cost & downtime reductions

One of the benefits of these new insights is often a reduction in operational expenditure and downtime.

For example, the rapid emergence of digital twin technology – digital models of physical assets built from real-time data, either in pure data form or as explodable 3D representations – is a key competitive differentiator in industrial IoT applications.

3 | Efficiency & productivity gains

By connecting a business’s key processes, leaders can more easily identify ways to boost efficiency and productivity.

Employees at Ford’s Valencia Engine Assembly Plant in Spain are using harness equipped with body-tracking technology. The pilot system, created by Ford and the Instituto Biomecánica de Valencia, has involved 70 employees in 21 work areas.

The technology is similar to the motion-tracking systems that record how athletes sprint or turn, or actors move and speak. Ford has been using the same type of technology to design less physically stressful workstations to enhance its manufacturing processes.

By accurately tracking its workers’ movements, Ford is enabling data-driven changes to its vehicle production processes, making them safer and more efficient.

The same principles can be applied to machines to identify bottlenecks or problems in production lines, however small.

4 | Asset tracking & waste reduction

Closely linked to efficiency and productivity is the drive to reduce waste, to which IoT tracking is integral.

5 | New business models

While the most obvious use cases for the IoT revolve around efficiency, productivity, and process monitoring, we’re increasingly seeing companies recognise the scope for it to provide them with information about their customers and how they use their products.

IOT is connected with cars, coffee machines, trains, and all manner of other smart things can feed usage data back to their manufacturers and operators, informing the services they build around those products.

Few of these things were originally designed to be connected, but the IoT can add new value to them, and help improve their future design via the reams of data gathered about their real-world usage.

Companies that successfully integrate the IoT into their products in a way that benefits both the customer and their own internal processes stand to reap huge benefits.

The IoT also allows organisations to move away from conventional business models to new revenue streams. The data acquired often holds value in itself, but, more significantly, customers can be offered subscription-based services that draw on the connected nature of the company’s products, often offsetting the initial cost of entry.

As Amazon has proved in the consumer world, products that provide businesses with valuable data can enable them to offer the same products at reduced costs, opening up new markets by replacing revenue from customers’ capital expenditure (capex) with operational expenditure (opex), via subscriptions.

Beyond IoT

These are just some of the gains to be had from implementing IoT technology as part of a wider digital transformation strategy. When combined with other emerging technology, such as AI, VR, AR, robotics, and blockchain (in terms of smart contracts and supply chains), businesses are able to unlock previously untapped revenue, gain new competitive advantages, create new training methods, and produce higher quality products and services.

From managing inventories to improving personalised shopping experiences and assisting in data mining, AI (Artificial Intelligence) and IoT (Internet of Things) is transforming how people do business today. 

Some vital IoT and AI statistics:

  • Every second, 127 new IoT devices connect to the internet. (Source: McKinsey Global Institute)
  • The international IoT market has crossed worth of  $1.7T in 2019. (Source: CBI Insights)
  • AI can boost business output by up to 40%. ( Source: Accenture)
  • 41% of consumers deem AI will improve their lives in some way. (Source: Strategy Analytics)

After that, you can safely say that IoT and AI have found their way into the heart of businesses.

Pseudo Leadership

There are various kind of leaderships which we had already discussed in our previous blog Leadership styles.

Pseudo-transformational leaders are the opposite of authentic transformational leaders. Authentic transformational leaders, characterized by people like Steve Jobs at Apple and Jack Welch at GE, have the charisma to get people to want to follow them and turn floundering companies into prosperous ones. Pseudo-transformational leaders also have charisma and are also successful at getting followers. But while authentic transformational leaders drive long-standing corporate turn-arounds, pseudo-transformational leaders tend to make short-term gains that ultimately result in long-term costs.

Hitler is the best example this kind of leadership. Please find some the characteristics of this kind of leaders.

  • seek to become the idols
  • concerned about their power
  • enhance their status by maintaining distance
  • welcome and expect blind obedience
  • privately contemptuous of those they are supposed to be serving
  • masters at manipulating behind the scenes
  • set and control agenda
  • withhold information
  • mislead, deceive and prevaricate.
  • not likely to listen to conflicting views

Block chain- How it can Transform India

Block chain can Transform India

The first thing that comes to our mind when we hear of block chain is crypto currency. But, it is just one example of thousands of possibilities emerging from Block Chain.

One easy way to explain Block Chain is comparing it with ledger. The ledger keeps records of all assets and money that you own. There is individual entry in the ledger against each item that you own. Now, consider you want to send money to a friend from USA to India. Money will not definitely fly from USA to India. This activity will result two entry: one in your ledger and another in yours friend’s ledger. But, between this two ledger entries, there will be hundreds of other entry. Now, this multiple ledger entry has to be maintained and reconciled. This results time delay and cost. That is why the $100 sent by you reaches your friend may be 4-5 days later and may be only $95. Now, consider there is a single universal ledger that is accessible to all interested parties. So, there will be single entry for each transaction and same needs to be authorized by all approving parties. This single universal ledger is the heart of block chain. Whenever a transaction happens it adds a block to already existing chain of blocks (set of transaction). Also this block chain is protected by best available cryptography algorithms which is difficult to hack. Another salient feature is every block added is immutably linked to other block. So, 1st block is connected to last block. So if hackers comes in and want to change a block, he has to change the chain of blocks.

Another salient of block chain is as it is a, chain of blocks, we can actually trace back to the old events. This ensured tractability of an event or document.

Also there are logic built in each block. So, even ever an event happens it generates another event. This fosters smart contract.

Finally who owns the chain? No one. So how to maintain it. To maintain a chain you need computing resources, time, money, electricity. How to get all these things? When, S. Nakemoto invented Block chain, he invented one currency with it i.e. crypto currency. Whoever maintains the ledger mines the currency as an incentive and that is why whoever maintains the universal ledger, are called miners.

Now how block chain can transform our lives in India. Here are some examples:

  1. Agriculture: Agriculture consists of 16% of India’s GDP. India has second highest agricultural land in the world. So, anything that transforms agriculture transforms India. One of the major challenge that the farmers face today is lack of agricultural equipment’s. Block chain can resolve this issue by introducing fractional ownership, which means now multiple farmer can own a single tractor. All complexities arising out of fractional ownership can be easily handled by block chain.

Another issue is ownership of land. Government is already digitizing land records. It can tell who is owner of this land at present, but it cannot tell who the earlier owners were. Block chain can resolve this because of tractability feature.

The major change that block chain can introduce is large scale harvesting including multiple farmers. Smart contracts can easily track and divide the share of profit among all the farmers in a transparent and trusted way.

  • Energy: For us power is a centralized concept. Power gets distributed from power plant to all end users. This is economically viable for cities but not for rural areas because of less consumption. Power needs to be consumed in the vicinity of where it is being produced. And it is possible as we have solar energy, wind energy etc. With the help of block chain and IOT we can create micro small grids. Where power can traded between houses. House with excess solar power can transfer power to deficit power and in return take money or crypto currency.
  • Peer to Peer Economy: Block chain with its non- hackable and trust worthy network, can create an awesome peer to peer economy. There will be no intermediator, automatically loan rates will be less.

Internet is great boon to today’s society. It solved problems like availability of information, communication, distribution etc. But, there are two problems which it supposed to solve but couldn’t

a) Trust: How much we believe on the news that is available on internet. Fake news etc.

b) Intermediation: Internet was supposed to equal opportunities to all. But, there came big intermediator like Google, Amazon, and Uber etc. Think of Uber for example, it was supposed to rider to driver economy. But now it has become rider- Uber- driver.

Above two problems can be solved by block chain through its trust worthy network, non- hack ability and providing an equal opportunity to all.

Business Analytics

90% of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years….

Business analytics is a buzzing term in today’s business, job, institutes and money market. To understand how and why the business analytics field is soaring, we need to understand, “what does business analytics do?”

To answer this we will look at the goals and tasks handled by a business analyst. Business analytics is a field that drives practical, data-driven changes in a business. It is a practical application of statistical analysis that focuses on providing actionable recommendations..

Above diagram looks very simple but in practical it is very much complex which we shall depict later on.
Analysts in this field focus on how to apply the insights they derive from data. Their goal is to draw concrete conclusions about a business by answering specific questions about why things happened, what will happen and what should be done.
Business analytics juxtaposes management, business and computer science fields. The business aspect requires both a high-level understanding of the business as well as the practical limitations that exist. The analytical part requires an understanding of data, statistics, computer science and also data garbage. This combination of fields allows business analysts to bridge the gap between management and technology. Effective communication and problem-solving are also key elements of business analytics to translate insights from data to information that is easily communicated to executives.
Business intelligence is a related field that also uses data to help understand and inform a business. What is the difference in goals of business analytics compared to business intelligence? Though both fields use data to answer questions business intelligence aims to understand what has happened in an organization to get to where you are. This includes measuring and tracking key performance indicators (KPIs.) Business analytics, on the other hand, aims to inform changes to a business through utilization of predictive models that provide insight into the outcome of proposed changes.
Business analytics utilizes big data, statistical analysis, and data visualization to implement organization changes. Predictive analytics is an important aspect of this work as it involves available data to create statistical models. These models can be used to predict outcomes and inform decision making. By learning from existing data, business analytics can make concrete recommendations to solve problems.
Analytics works on three verticals…
.

But it is very much complex due to data volume, garbage data and messy data. We need to find business insights from all the garbage and mess.

Some Examples…
Business analytics has applications in a wide array of different businesses. Some companies are developing innovative ways to use big data in order to improve their customer’s experience and maximize profits.
Food and Bevarage companies like Swiggy and Zomato have begun business analytics to streamline their restaurants and customer call log. No one wants to have a slow experience in a fast-food drive-thru. By monitoring how busy the drive-thru is these businesses can increase efficiency during peak hours. When the line gets long, the digital order boards change.
Other types of business analytics applications do more than just respond to the current situation. These techniques help businesses predict which customers are less likely to return. They can then target advertising and promotions to these customers to improve retention. Here are some examples of predictive analytics in business:
Casinos have embraced business analytics to improve their profits and keep customers coming back. Casinos have a complicated relationship with their customers. Though the house wins most of the time, players need to win enough to enjoy themselves and keep playing. Otherwise, players would quickly lose interest and stop coming back. By tracking players spending, casinos can learn which customers they make the most money from.
Organizations also use data from search engines to find interests and forecast their demand.
Business Analytics Tools
The application of business analytics requires the use of specialized tools to analyse data in a meaningful way. There are data analytics tools that can be used in business analytics to streamline the big data pipeline.
Tools for use in business analytics ranges substantially in complexity. Self-service analytics tools provide a simplified interface, often are paid services that can do basic data analytics tasks in a user-friendly way. Alternatively, advanced statistical analysis tools require programming and software engineering skills to use effectively. Many of these tools are open-source and available for free to users. They require a trained professional to be used but can provide more complex and specialized insights.
The most popular and well-known tools in both data analytics and business analytics are R and Python. Though they require programming and understanding of the underlying statistical techniques, they are flexible and powerful. Apart from these include data visualization tools, advanced statistical algorithms, data scraping tools and much more.
There are also paid statistical programming languages. These include SAS, SPSS and MATLAB. These languages have the advantage of paid support and professional development. However, they are not as popular as open source solutions.
Not all statistical analyses tools require programming. There are many options for statistical analysis with a graphical user interface (GUI). These tools are generally paid and include Tableau, Qlik, Sisense and SAP. These are self-service analytics tools that can take raw data and turn it into user-friendly charts with the click of a button. This user-friendly workflow allows the most useful insights to quickly be visualized.
Selecting the right tool involves balancing financial costs, time costs, complexity of the data and the ease of use.
Benefits of Business Analytics
Business analytics provides a wide array of benefits:
● Enable decision making to increase profits and improve efficiency
● With predictive analytics, allow businesses to plan for the future
● Helps a company make informed business decisions
● By modeling the outcomes and understanding the past, guesswork is minimized
● Present meaningful, clear data to support decision making and convince stakeholder
Business analytics provides a way for businesses to plan for the future. By modeling the trends in businesses’ sales, profits and other key metrics, these indicators can be projected into the future. Understanding the changes that are likely to occur seasonally, annually or on any scale allow businesses to better prepare. This may mean decreasing spending in preparation for a slow season or investing in new marketing campaigns to compensate. Large suppliers can use this data to predict order volume and minimize waste in their warehouses. Planning for future events provides a huge advantage to all businesses.
Business analytics can also enable new types of marketing campaigns. The data collected by businesses give insights into customer behavior which helps businesses understand the effectiveness of advertising campaigns with different audiences. Targeting audiences that are more likely to respond to specific campaigns or products increases efficiency overall. In addition, understanding consumer habits can help businesses improve customer retention. By identifying customers who are less likely to return, businesses can offer targeted promotions. This provides a cost-effective way to gain customer loyalty.
Key Requirements for implementation:
● Top Management support
● Robust business process
Note: Excellent analytics does not solve the bad business process
