High speed 4G, 5G internet, online news apps, live news streaming and so much more has helped the people to start engaged with the world despite of being socially distanced


G)Tracking people with facial recognition and big data
In terms of pandemic management, big data analytics can help identify infected individuals quickly, connect with them, track who they have come in contact with, and so on. Facial recognition techniques with data can correctly identify people, even if they are masked. Such techniques can help in monitoring certain movement and tracking quarantined people. It can also help keep an eye on people and find out if they are in contact with an

Al Technology

AI risk assessment and forecasting with artificial intelligence is becoming an important part of healthcare today & AI-based data analysis and predictive models enable the healthcare professionals by more accurate predictions can be made about the spread of diseases, drugs, treatments, etc. 


Contact-less movement and deliveries through autonomous vehicles, drones and robots
Self-driving cars, drones, and robots help when human contact is avoided. With autonomous vehicles, infected people can be easily transported to health facilities without endangering the lives of healthy people. The robot can be used to provide food and kitchen utensils, disinfect hospitals and monitor roads. Drones can be used to identify infected people for food distribution, population surveillance, test kits and medicines to transport bodies for thermal imaging, disinfection, etc.



Technology supported temperature monitoring

Wireless thermometers and other infrared devices for measuring body temperature are important medical devices used in offices, airports, hotels, hospitals, train stations, shops, and other public places such as checkpoints. These technologies help measure body temperature remotely and are effective in identifying people who need further investigation. Automatic thermal monitoring with facial recognition makes the process faster and more efficient.


In today's world, technology is constantly changing. That's why it's important for businesses and businesses to integrate technology management into the strategies they use to stay productive and competitive. We strive to make our business successful and large in order to be more profitable and innovative. Without effective technology management, businesses will lag behind as competitors grow faster.

Big Data- A Potential Panacea!


The world is one big data problem.” – by Andrew McAfee, co-director of MIT Initiative

Big Data is a collection of massive and enormous data that contains complex informational indexes and information volume. They can be structured, semi-structured and unstructured depending much on   sources of data, which various from homogeneity to heterogeneity of data. These include huge quantities of data, data management capabilities, social media analytics and real time data ranging from terabytes or petabytes. After examining  the data has been launched as Big Data analytics.

There are 3 types of Big Data:

1.     Structured: Any form of data that can be stored, processed having a fixed pattern is called as “Structured”. This type of data has high potential of its utility in various industries.

2.     Unstructured:  Any form of data that do not follow any fixed pattern is called as “Unstructured”. They are heterogeneous in nature. These can be in the form of simple text files, images, videos etc.

3.     Semi-structured:  It is the mixture of both homogeneous and heterogeneous of data. One such example can be Data stored in an XML file or table definition of relational DBMS.

Big Data Application:
