Future & Java & Me

I was invited to give a talk on Future & Java & Me to Engineering students in SJCE, Mysore. It was fun and exciting to look at the future for me. How Digital technologies is/will fundamentally redesigning the business landscape is mind boggling.

Key points from the talk:
-Google Deepmind’s AlphaGo/AlphaZero & Sophia the AI Robot are examples of ML/AI coming of age and becoming prime time
-Access to scalable cloud computing power and on-the-go mobile computing has enabled emergence of new age business models
-In this exciting future, Java still rules the roost as a technology to invest in. It is indeed testimony to the design thinking of the Java’s inventors, especially James Gosling
-As a student, who either wants a job or be an innovator, one should focus on developing strong fundamentals such as mathematics, algorithm/data structure, solid hands-on programming, structured & creative problem solving. Above all the one should focus on developing practices to master one’s mind and body

To be part of these kind of game changing solutions is what excited us to create appZui! 3 cheers to the future where digital and real are indistinguishable…Real-Digital!👍

Sri M. Visvesvaraya

Today, 15th Sep is celebrated as Engineer’s Day in India. This is in memory of one of the greatest Engineer modern India has produced – Sri M. Visvesvaraya, who has been recipient of highest civilian award Bharata Ratna and also was knighted by the then British empire*

One of his design was a patented a system of automatic weir water floodgates, which was first installed in Khadakvasla Reservoir near Pune. Based on the success of this design, later the same system was installed at the Tigra Dam in Gwalior and KRS Dam in Mysore.

Remember, your work may be only to sweep a railway crossing, but it is your duty to keep it so clean that no other crossing in the world is as clean as yours.

-Sri M. Visvesvaraya

Foot note: *Jokingly, I say, English butchered Sri into Sir. The Sanskrit sound of Sri is the recognition of the universal spirit in all and is the most respectful way of addressing someone before using their given name.
