Quantum Computing

Quantum Computing is based on the spin affect. Generally, +1/2 and -1/2 are anti-clockwise and clockwise spin conditions that determine the base of the computing. Can we have an electron with 0, +/- 1/4, +/- 3/4, +/- 1 as a spin affect. Can we have a no-spin, or an electron with a forward movement and spin as well? Quantum Computing Scientists– Kindly consider!

Am I from the 11th generation?

Bionic Chip   Ever wondered what can happen when the chips in a mobile or a laptop can evolve? A chip is basically a circuit, which can be used to run the whole machine. Bionic chips are 11th generation chips that can handle a neural engine. Let us name one engine as A11. The A11 is a dedicated neural network hardware that the industry calls a “Neural engine”. A11 can perform up to 600 billion operations per second used for recognize facial recognitions, upload and stream data in real time, run heuristic algorithms, perform machine learning tasks, in a more…

Nano particles and electromagnetic ink

If this was the future This is an interesting concept. You enter your bank passbook inside an electronic kiosk for fulfilling the requirement of updating the ledger balance. You have language options, and at the end you get a printed version of the ledger on the passbook. Here are a few business and technical options- You use an electromagnetic ink- This consists of special particles in make. A basic nutrient is ferrous oxide. This can be read through special electromagnetic rays. You use a card puncher- This is similar to the punching machine where the characters to be printed or…

The Boolean behind the Boolean

Algorithmic Training Let us assume that a stock is trading at 232.74 INR in the SENSEX. What could be various parameters that can cause a stock sell? Let us have a look at this Boolean logic. IF Share Volume Trading > 5,000 IF Share Volume Trading < 10,000,000 IF Share Price Increase > 1 % of Early Start Price IF Share Price Increase < 3 % of Early Start Price IF Minimum Fluctuation of Price > 0.1 % of Early Start Price IF Maximum Fluctuation of Price < 2 % of Early Start Price IF Industry Index of Clubbed Stocks…

Differential Pricing Scheme with respect to Quality and Time

Differential Pricing Scheme An electronic item is paced at a price of 4X at the start of its launch. For the first year, it is at 4X. For the next year, it is 2.5X. In the start of the 3rd year, it is 1X. After the concept is old, the price is almost free at 0.5X. This is the differential pricing with time. Also, let us say there are 100 copies of a quality book or publication to be sold. Then, for an estimate sell of 100 copies, the price is 1X. For an estimate of 50 copies, the price…

On lending and borrowing guidelines by the RBI on the peer-to-peer network

Peer-2-Peer Network P2P lending is a niche area which needs attention. Many start-ups in India are based on this network. The RBI is also trying to issue guidelines based on this. Some of the points that can be noted are- Every lender or borrower will have an unique digital ID, seeded with Aadhar ID. There would be no cash transactions, but transactions with trails via electronic means. There would be a threshold level for which P2P will fetch returns. P2P institutions will be registered under a company in NBFC. This allows RBI to audit the companies. There will be a…

From better to the best

2G Auctions A lot is happening in the fresh 2G auctions in place. Some of the TELCOs are already opposing certain policies. Here is some food for thought- It is a level playing field and not a monopoly by auctioning the spectrum. There will be more presence other than major playing TELCOs which occupy more than 65% of the market share. Shift in spectrum would mean another additional investment; most of the 1800 MHz should be targeted towards the rural areas, leaving the infrastructure of the 900 MHz band mostly in urban and semi-urban cities as it is. Reservation should…
