In this TEDx talk, Jaspreet Bindra explores the promise of Blockchain and how it could radically transform identity, agriculture, money, energy, governance, and pretty much everything else, especially in the emerging countries.

This TEDx talk demystifies blockchain as never before, and explains how it can change the world around you… Jaspreet Bindra is a digital transformation and Blockchain expert. Until very recently, he was the Chief Digital Officer of $20bn Mahindra Group; and he continues as their Digital Adviser. He speaks, writes, teaches and consults on Digital Transformation and Blockchain, and is currently building a company around the same. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

The Verge’s Adi Robertson asks the question: Why haven’t Smart Glasses become more mainstream?

Whether you think smart glasses are cool or creepy, for most people, they’re not a part of everyday life. But AR glasses and headsets — including long-running projects like Google Glass — have found a niche with manufacturing, military simulations, and even the theater.

In this video, learn how to stop treating Scala as a better Java and start exploring the world of Functional Programming.

There are also code examples to demonstrate a four step path that’ll let you ease yourself into the world of Functional Programming while continuing to deliver production quality code.

I’ve often referred to edge computing in many posts, but here’s a great article on why it will revolutionize IoT and help it really transform entire industries along with our everyday lives.

The edge is where data gets generated, events occur, things and people interact. The key is putting intelligence there. The Internet of Things (IoT) holds great promise for improving operational efficiencies and vastly reducing costly downtime. But for IoT to realize its potential, computational challenges must be overcome. Even […]

Industrial robots have been around for decades. What will happen when they are connected to AI? What will the job market look like and how will entire industries change?

If we were to ask where the combination of robotics and AI can provide industrial transformation, the immediate view in many people’s minds is the direct replacement of human workers, for example in picking strawberries. This is only a part of the picture, significant gains are also enabled by replacing or upgrading existing machines (see our welding example above), by augmenting human capabilities (such as by presetting no-go zones in robotic surgery) and by opening completely new options that previously were not possible (for example micro surgery robots may need to make their own decisions due to difficulty in communicating with them inside the body).
