    ...In this, the participants are not defined at the start of the work and the call is given to the online community for participation. It started with an article in February 2008, which discusses about crowdsourcing as a distributed problem solving and production model. Now, there are many areas of importance in which it can be used as a tool for developing brilliant applications for the benefits of the society in the field of health, education, information technology, biotechnology, business funding, online activities and research. However. the work on crowdsourcing initiatives where public participates in mass is at a very nascent stage. There are few institutions and industries who are working in the next generation crowdsourcing applications. ...

    ...The current level of Artificial Intelligence is achieved through years of research in Machine Learning, Deep Learning and other related fields. With a lot of hype and investments around, Deep Learning technology – a subdivision of Machine Learning is now successfully applied in our daily life from speech recognition apps in smartphones to YouTube recommendations. One of the pioneers of the Deep Learning, Andrew Ng feels that AI is the new form of electricity where every AI application in future electronic devices will be fuelled by Deep Learning models. Tech giants like Facebook, Google, and Apple have started Deep Learning based research labs for AI in the recent years. The gap between academia and IT industry in AI has now narrowed after numerous recent collaboration between the Deep Learning pioneers and Silicon Valley. ...

    ...In the broad sense, any journal paper with the higher impact factor to be considered a better journal. The impact factor is the ratio of the number of citations of the papers published in last two years and number of papers published in last two years. According to research from the University of Ottawa, in 2009 we passed the 50 million mark in terms of the total number of scientific papers published since 1665, and approximately 2.5 million new scientific papers are published each year. The research publications are useful in several ways, for example, judging the performance of any researcher or professor. These are also useful in applying for the grants from the governmental agencies such as DST, DBT, DRDO, AICTE, UGC etc. In Indian scenario, two biggest issues are associated with the researchers. One of them is to publish in the predatory journals. ...

    ...He will feel himself as part of the crowd and can get different sensorial experiences depending upon the sophistication of the VR application. Technologies dealing with virtual reality have started maturing and will be pervasive by the end of this decade. As of now, we are seeing virtual reality shows in amusement parks where people enjoy multi-dimensional virtual experiences. Many technology companies also showcase their VR products during technology conferences. There have been many implementations of the VR products and applications in real world also. Tourism industry is the first one to take advantage of the technology. Many tourism sites has developed VR tours, which take you to a world where you feel that you are part of the scene and can have interactions with the various elements at the scene. Most of the world famous sites have some or the other technologies in action to help increase the visitor experience. ...

    ...It is prudent to have a look at the progress and contribution for the society. Due to the explosion in the number of smart phones and other digital devices it has become easy for the people to consume online content. The scale of the activity also helps the sustainability aspect of MOOCs. Initially there have been extreme voices in favour and against the utility of MOOCs. Some of them going to the extent that “whole education infrastructure including colleges and universities will become non-existent because everything can be done online”. But with the progress of time, it is becoming evident that MOOCs are becoming enabler in the evolution of a knowledge society and are not a threat to anyone. As we have more and more data showing the exact characteristics of learners and their behaviour, there are some clear pointers giving us the direction it will take. MOOCs are being consumed by four types of learners 1. Professionals who are working in Industry: There are three reasons for them to consume MOOCs. ...

    ...This has also been fuelled by the Neural network research which is modelled on the concept of functioning of human brain. Increase in size and intellect of neural networks has paved the way for the machines to do many tasks; which were otherwise supposed to be comprehensible to human mind only. By the end of this decade, we will have our smartphones equipped with NLP (natural language processing) applications. You will speak in your language (e.g. Hindi), but the language will be translated in real time and person at the other side will hear in his/her language (e.g. Spanish). So there will be hardly any need to learn more than one language. Another remarkable change will be that you may not need to depend on the medical experts to get your medical test reports examined. There will be online repositories and mobile apps with deep learning semantics that will give you unbiased results in a professional way. ...

    ...Many of you may be taken for a ride if you are looking primarily at institution buildings, location, residential facilities, placement records, curriculum, research labs, tuition fees, Quality of the website, national and international rankings, excellence awards, prominent visitors to the institution etc. I am in no way saying that all these things are less important, but what I want to emphasize is that all these things will automatically be there if there are excellent human resources in the institution. So to make your task of selection easy, I will recommend you to just do a comparative analysis of the faculty of the institutions you are looking at. The logic for this recommendation is simple to understand. Institutions can have good infrastructure and resources but may not have faculty who are passionate and have a drive to do something. ...

    ...India needs to put the hard facts on the table and realistically do a cross check of the different parameters of India-China Relationship. Nobody can deny that China is the real pain for our foreign policy experts and political class. Many different methods adopted by central Government have shown some results in the positive direction in last few years. India has actively started engaging with the countries in Chinese Periphery, so as to have some bargaining position on different issues. But, all these efforts are too little to deliver any tangible results. Militarily, China has an upper hand on many aspects. The aggressive expansion of infrastructure and defence capabilities by China near the border is a known fact. China is also increasingly showing its strength by upgrading the level of war games. ...
