Artificial Intelligence is empowering business leaders to make better, data-driven, and insightful decisions. It has undergone several evolutions since it burst into the business scene in the 1950s, to the point where several thinkers have already painted a machine that replaces human scenarios for the future. Our view on the future of work has evolved into a zero-sum game, where the result is an either-or.

In my opinion, the view that AI will play a dominant role in the workplace is a little extreme. The fundamental assumption around AI replacing human workers is that humans and machines have the same…

Self-healing blockchains are the only way to create a truly decentralized world within the decade.

The world is eagerly waiting for a next-generation, high-performance, permissionless blockchain, and this blockchain should be able to scale all decentralized applications industrially. So far, the crypto community has witnessed:

  • Peer-to-peer blockchain networks that use all the peers to validate transactions and provide computation and storage — or traditional blockchains — such as Bitcoin and Ethereum.
  • P2P blockchain networks that shard…

This essay has been attributed to different people and I tried to find out the true source but found no success. It was read out on the BBC by Stuart George and also published in the London Times. Be that as it may, it however does not take away from the fact that this piece is absolutely superb and worthy of posting. A friend recently shared it on his Facebook timeline as well.

I had originally posted this on my LinkedIn profile in 2015. I just happened to revisit it today and looking at where we find ourselves in 2021…


Between the Fake News in search of facts. 3d illustration by iStock

There is nothing new about fake news. It has been in existence for centuries, albeit without the scaffolding of support from social media. From housewives’ tales to gossip magazines, the Trojan horse, to the misinformation around the D-Day landing site, fake news has been a rite of passage.

it was the 2016 U.S. presidential election that branded fake news with a legit identity

The Russian military made this into fine art with “maskirovka,” the doctrine gaining superiority through deception, denial, and disinformation. However, it was the 2016 U.S. presidential election that branded it with a legit identity and with such…


Sounds like a realistic version of the Man in the High Castle. Per Quantum Mechanics, this might even be true :-)

Just as a thought - Back in 1961, the Nobel Prize–winning physicist Eugene Wigner outlined a thought experiment that demonstrated one of the lesser-known paradoxes of quantum mechanics. The experiment shows how two observers — say, Wigner and Wigner’s friend — can experience different realities.

Since then, physicists have used the “Wigner’s Friend” thought experiment to explore the nature of measurement and to argue over whether objective facts can exist. That’s important because scientists carry out experiments to establish…


I was part of a very insightful discussion on “The Role of AI in Managing Business Risk” with Kaushal Sampat and Dr. Vishnu Ramchandran as part of the Rubix Knowledge Series​.

Thank you, Onalytica and Joe Fields, for featuring me on your platform. After I saw the video, I thought, let me use this for some comic relief (esp. suited for the rough times we live in) — to critique myself and as a lessons learned opportunity.

First off, I think I am still figuring out where to look while doing a video — at the person onscreen, at the camera, and just R.E.M.ing all over the place.

Distance from the camera — too close, I think. …


Digital Transformation is not a magic wand; it is a complex yet essential enterprise commitment to change. Companies that have succeeded have reaped significant benefits. The Deloitte Digital Transformation Survey 2020 found that greater digital maturity is associated with better financial performance. The higher-maturity companies in this year’s sample were about 3X more likely than lower-maturity companies to report annual net revenue growth and net profit margins — a pattern that was consistent across industries.
