Palguni G T : Technology today is evolving and emerging at a rapid pace, enabling faster change and progress, causing an acceleration of the rate of change and hence impacting the business outcomes. Here are some of the Latest Top Technology Trends for 2023:
Switch to Monk Mode to get things done?
Monk mode is a concept related to personal development and productivity that emphasizes focus and dedication towards a specific goal or pursuit. It does not necessarily involve a complete renunciation of worldly possessions or a move to a remote location such as the Himalayas.
Monk mode can be practiced by anyone, regardless of their lifestyle or circumstances. It is a way to achieve a specific goal, such as launching a business, writing a book, or learning a new skill, by removing distractions and focusing solely on the task at hand.
The Age of AI has begun – Bill Gates
In my lifetime, I’ve seen two demonstrations of technology that struck me as revolutionary.
The first time was in 1980, when I was introduced to a graphical user interface—the forerunner of every modern operating system, including Windows. I sat with the person who had shown me the demo, a brilliant programmer named Charles Simonyi, and we immediately started brainstorming about all the things we could do with such a user-friendly approach to computing. Charles eventually joined Microsoft, Windows became the backbone of Microsoft, and the thinking we did after that demo helped set the company’s agenda for the next 15 years.
Chia publishes two approaches to quantum computing in the JACM
With two recent publications in the Journal of the Association for Computing Machinery (JACM), quantum computer science researcher and Rice University assistant professor Nai-Hui Chia has hit his stride. Ironically, quantum computing is not the path he intended to take.
“I’ve been a fan of theoretical physicist Richard Feynman since junior high school; becoming a theoretical physicist was one of my childhood dreams,” said Chia. “But when I entered college, I was only admitted by the computer science department.
Basics of GUI Programming with Python Tkinter
GUI programming, short for Graphical User Interface programming, is the process of designing, creating, and implementing software that provides a visual representation of an application’s functionality. GUI programming allows users to interact with an application using graphical elements such as buttons, menus, icons, and windows instead of command-line or text-based interfaces.
GUI programming involves creating a user interface using a programming language, such as Python, Java, or C++, and a GUI toolkit, such as Tkinter, Swing, or Qt. The toolkit provides a set of graphical components that can be used to create user interfaces. These components can be customized by setting properties such as size, position, color, and font.
The 5 Stages of the Design Thinking Process
Design thinking is a user-centric approach to problem-solving and is often employed by companies to overcome complex challenges in innovative ways. It’s especially effective when applied to problems that are ill-defined or unknown.
In this guide, we’ll go over everything you need to know about design thinking, including its origin, why it’s considered such a valuable tool, and the five critical stages of the design thinking process.
The Mind That Watches Itself
In psychology, “meta-cognition” is a person’s ability to be aware of their own thoughts and emotions and have thoughts/emotions about those thoughts and emotions in real time.
Meta-cognition is more casually known as “self-awareness” and is tied to all sorts of positive outcomes, from better emotional regulation to more focus and discipline and overall happiness and well-being.
If You Think AI Is Hot, Wait Until It Meets Quantum Computing
The resurgence of AI has industry leaders counting the days until quantum computers go mainstream. There’s been considerable progress on the quantum computing front since I blogged last year about how The European Quantum Industry Consortium (QuIC) was developing its Quantum Strategic Industry Roadmap. For an update, I reached out to Laure Le Bars, research project director at SAP and also president of QuIC. Le Bars was a recent guest on the Future of ERP Podcast from SAP, hosted by Richard Howells, vice president for thought leadership at SAP, and Oyku Ilgar, marketing director for SAP Supply Chain.
ViperGPT vs GPT-4
Former Google Research Scientist Carl Vondrick, who is currently an Assistant Professor at Columbia University, along with two computer vision PhD researchers from the same university, Dídac Surís and Sachit Menon, proposed the ViperGPT, a framework for programmatic composition of specialised vision, language, math, and logic functions for complex visual queries.
Breakthrough in quantum error correction could lead to large-scale quantum computers
Researchers at Google Quantum AI have made an important breakthrough in the development of quantum error correction, a technique that is considered essential for building large-scale quantum computers that can solve practical problems. The team showed that computational error rates can be reduced by increasing the number of quantum bits (qubits) used to perform quantum error correction. This result is an important step towards creating fault-tolerant quantum computers.
