  • Swarm Robotics and the Role of Blockchain

    Blockchain is a decentralized method of recording transactions and allowing communication between different entities on a network. Everyone on the network has access to the entire network and its history. The transactions or actions performed are impossible to tamper, alter or falsify for anyone. Thus, the major advantages of a blockchain are transparency and security. We have taken a bird’s eye view of blockchain in previous blogs; now, we shall look at a very specific field of application – Swarm Robotics. We shall try to understand what Swarm Robotics entails, its applications, and how Blockchain is aiding its development. What is Swarm Robotics? The dictionary definition of swarm states that…

  • Reasons why manufacturing industries should choose blockchain

    In the last blog, we understood what blockchain is at a broad level. Now, let’s see what it brings to the table for manufacturing companies. We shall look at 8 major reasons why manufacturers should adopt blockchain. If you are a manufacturer, read carefully! Hope you like it. Transparency With evolving technologies, an increasing number of processes in manufacturing are going digital and becoming a huge source of data. And resultantly, transparency in sharing of data is becoming an important issue. All the stakeholders must have equal access to data. In a blockchain, all the network participants share the same data and it can be updated only through the consensus…

  • Cyber Security High-Risk Industries

    Welcome to the final blog in the series on Cyber Security. In this piece, we shall look at the industries at the highest risk of cyber-attacks. Let’s get right into it! Time changes fast, technology faster, and we are forced to adapt at the quickest speed. The more we start to rely on technology, the newer challenges and risks emerge. Cybercrimes are one such challenge. Every individual and organization that is connected to digital is always at the risk of a cyber-attack. Experts estimate that cybercrimes could potentially cost the world over US$10.5 trillion annually by 2025. However, specific sectors are more prone to cyber-attack than others. Let’s have a look…

  • Cyber Security for Small Businesses

    When talking about cybersecurity, it’s a common tendency to consider only the large corporates and MNCs. However, small and medium-sized businesses (SMB) are easier prey for cyber attackers because of the lack of cybersecurity measures in SMBs. This blog will look at the cost-effective steps SMBs can take to safeguard their business from cyber-attacks. Setting up a small business needs a load of effort, courage, and dedication. Still, at any given time, threats are looming to disrupt the business – competition, new technology, change in customer demand, etc. Moreover, today, a new threat always looms large on any business – cybercrimes. However, most SMBs do not acknowledge the danger and…

You would never want unauthorized people to access your data. But in the real world, that is not…

  • Impact and Rise of Service Robots in Healthcare

    Before we conclude the blog series on Robotics in Healthcare, we shall look at an essential type of robot taking the healthcare world by storm. Service robots relieve the burden on healthcare workers and paramedical staff by taking up routine logistical tasks. These robots can set up patient rooms, track supplies and file purchase orders, restock medical supply cabinets, and transport bed linens to and from laundry facilities. Delegating such tasks to robots helps the staff have more time for jobs that require human interaction and judgment. The rise of service robots The covid-19 pandemic has changed the way we live and work with each other. Sanitation requirements and social…
