Augmented Reality in Healthcare:

What is Augmented Reality?
It is a technology that adds value to the real world by overlaying and displaying real-time digital information and media such as videos and 3D models. It can be viewed on smartphones, tablets and wearable tech like smart glasses.

Augmented reality is among the most promising digital technologies at present. It is already making inroads in several industries, including healthcare. It has the potential to change healthcare and everyday medicine completely for patients and physicians. There are two aspects that makes AR is unique: users do not lose touch with reality and it puts information into eyesight as fast as possible. These distinctive features enable AR to become a driving force in the future of medicine. Health services researchers are developing creative approaches by involving innovations in organizations, financing, the roles of health professionals and use of technology in order to improve the quality of healthcare.
Augmented Reality is significantly reducing risks associated with minimally invasive surgery. Thanks to AR surgeons can now wear smart glasses during the procedure and stay focused on the task at hand, thereby minimizing mistakes and reducing the need to multitask.
AR apps can be used to illustrate the impact of certain diseases and can also educate family members of patients about pathology and consequences of particular conditions. Augmented Reality tech also helps during painful and unpleasant procedures such as taking blood from a patient. Management of a patient’s aftercare is another region where this revolutionary technology can be implemented. For instance, Augmented Reality apps installed in smart glasses can act as a healthcare assistant and remind patients when it is time for their medication or by encouraging them to eat better and exercise more.
The application of Augmented Reality is two-fold for doctors. Firstly, the training and education aspect, which helps trainee physicians better visualize and treat health issues. Secondly, quick access to real-time data and patient information enhances their ability to diagnose and treat conditions more effectively. Documenting patient’s medical information and allowing first responders send this information to the hospital prior to the patient’s arrival, helps the hospital to be better equipped. AR can also increase a surgeon’s field of view by overlaying an enlarged 3D version of vital organs as they conduct complex surgeries.
Many AR healthcare apps and devices have already made their way into the world’s leading hospitals. The future of medicine is on the brink of major change, which will be a transformative experience in healthcare for the hospital, patient, and medical practitioners alike.


World’s Ancient Storylines Brought To Life Using Image Recognition

Time and tide wait for none. This has been the hard truth man has never been able to come to terms with. However, in his unwavering mission to preserve history, man stretched his limits, accomplishing feats that were deemed unthinkable. Then came technology with a will to conquer, fuelling both man’s curiosity and imagination like never before, changing the world the way it is today, even changing reality into virtual or augmented. Still, time and tide wait for none.

Hence, two budding thinkers, Mikaela Jade of Australian Aboriginal company Indigital and Gautham Kalathur of BMS Innolabs, a Karnataka government funded company, have joined hands in bringing to life some of world’s most ancient storylines via one of modern world’s most promising technologies – the Microsoft HoloLens. The aim is to use this amazing tech to help indigenous communities across our globe preserve their cultures, stories, languages, knowledge and laws.

The duo had a chance encounter, two years back, at America’s fastest growing tech start-up event, Collision. Since then, their partnership has been strengthening. The two, who also happen to be the CEOs of their respective companies, found their passions intersect at Augmented Reality (AR). It soon culminated into a world-first mobile phone app. They are calling it “Indigital Storytelling,” and it was released in Australia in July. Jade and Kalathur have also showcased the prototype in Karnataka.

Priyank Kharge, Karnataka’s IT/BT and tourism minister, has spoken well about the app, and has also hinted at future collaborations. A user of the app and HoloLens can bring to life Australia’s “Aboriginal cultural stories of Kakadu World Heritage Area through image recognition of 20,000 year old cultural rock art figures,” reports The Hindu BusinessLine. Historical and cultural storytelling using modern tech is expected to gain significance as a result of this association.

The cyber world is no longer the sheltered place. Affirmative!!! Malware attack is on high and can be found on all edges of the web. Keep in mind: by essentially opening an email or simply exploring to a site, you are at danger of tainting your PC. Malware turns out to be more mind boggling each day.

Demonetization and E-Wallets:

The 8th of November was just another normal day in the country, at least until news channel flashed with alerts about the ban on 500 and 1000 denominations currency notes and the Prime Ministers address to the nation. Although emergency services were to continue to accept these large denominations, small businesses struggled with a surge in demand for returning the balance change. On the larger scale, online sentiment was positive when it came to the efforts taken by the Prime Minister to curb black money.

Despite the initial inconvenience, Twitter users supported the government on the issue of demonetisation, but had complaints with the banking system in terms of the execution of the plan. With a majority of people feeling that the execution could have been much better, there was a huge increase in the number of downloads of payment apps. The government’s move to withdraw 500rs and 1,000rs notes has come as a windfall for the digital payment solutions start-ups.

Paytm, which is the largest Indian mobile payment wallet with more than 100 million users, saw app downloads going up by three times and payments for offline transactions by five times in the first two days following the government’s move. Mobikwik with its 35 million customers saw a 100% increase in customer numbers in the past few days. HDFC’s Chillr mobile payment app has seen a growth of 30% in app usage and a 50% increase in downloads. PayU digital wallet also experienced a rise in wallet loads in the first two days. There has also been a surge in retail merchant enrolments to E-Wallet services. Digital wallet Freecharge has seen a 10 fold increase in the number of retail merchant signups in the past few days.

Although a number of industries are finding it hard to come to terms with the new reality, E-Wallet companies are the biggest benefactors of the government’s decision to demonetize 500rs and 1000rs notes. The trend has always been low value-high volume transactions in the online space, which is expected to change in future.

Percentage of paid gaming apps on play store.

If you consider the sheer number of products on Play Store it would be impossible to get an exact percentage of paid apps. Initially, developers, both novice and amateur alike, wanted to milk this cow dry and the games, that were published then, were mostly paid, so there was a rather large chunk of paid mobile games in the marketplace. Later on the developers realized that not everybody would go for a paid game/app and they started looking for alternatives to monetize their product. Furthermore, piracy also affected paid apps, converting them to easily downloadable APK files off the net.

The Play Store has come a long way from being just a marketplace for apps/games. Most app submissions don’t go through the kind of moderation or censorship that the ios App Store goes through and the result is of course a huge pile up of apps/games, where some of the great apps from good companies go unnoticed.

In-App Advertising was the next best option for developers. Ads were placed inside the apps in a rather unobtrusive fashion. While most apps’ utility weren’t affected with a slight ad space either at the bottom or top, they were still considered irrelevant and annoying. Some apps also went on to have a full screen ad along with a countdown to a skip button. In the end even when the app experience was spoilt to a meagre degree, users were happy as long as it was completely free. Yet again the developers faced issues as the ads generated a lean revenue.

As a result Freemiums were introduced. These are apps/games which are free to play, but when users try to access all features, they are asked to pay a small amount. People who were hooked to the apps/games were happy to oblige. Ads were also a major source of revenue for these ‘free games’. While Freemiums are the obvious choice to go with, developers can also opt to monetizing an app through in-app purchases.

Right now it’s safe to assume that the paid apps on Play store is as less as 20% and these are either games from AAA developers like Gameloft or from gargantuan companies like Ubisoft or EA or even apps that  boast of immense features. Even so, these paid apps either quickly take the freemium route within months of its release or go on sale for as less $0.99. Nonetheless feel free to charge a premium if your app meets the quality.
