ChatGPT and its Impact on the IT Industry

ChatGPT and its Impact on the IT Industry Author: Ravi Sankar Pabbati One of our team members had a wild idea long ago that one day there will be a technology to generate software applications given software requirement documents. To our surprise, we were astounded when ChatGPT came alive. We now had the capabilities of ChatGPT in generating code for a prescribed software programming task for example “In java how to split a list into multiple lists of chunk size 10”. What is ChatGPT? ChatGPT is a conversational AI chatbot tool designed to understand user intent and provide accurate responses to a wide range of queries. It utilizes large language models (LLMs) trained on massive datasets using unsupervised learning, supervised learning, and reinforcement techniques. These models are used to predict the next word in a sequence of text, enabling ChatGPT to provide insightful and accurate responses to user queries. What is the impact of ChatGPT on the IT industry? ChatGPT has the potential to be a game changer for software professionals, improving their productivity and speeding up the software development process. Programmers can now ask ChatGPT to write code for a given problem, check the code for improvements, ask conceptual questions on any technical topic or technology, and seek best practices to follow for any specific technology or problem. Furthermore, ChatGPT is much more than a search engine for technical information. It can understand the nuances of information(what, why, how, when) and provide insightful responses to queries that are difficult to obtain from traditional search engines. As such, it is becoming a go-to choice for developers who seek to quickly and efficiently find technical information. While some may fear that ChatGPT will reduce jobs, it should be viewed as a tool to match the ever-increasing customer demand for producing high-quality software in less time and on a smaller budget. It will help companies and individuals to conceptualize any idea and build it faster. In terms of software development, ChatGPT is already being integrated into modern applications with built-in AI capabilities. This is likely to challenge and disrupt traditional software applications, with ChatGPT becoming ubiquitous in almost all applications used on a daily basis, including office suites, productivity tools, development IDEs, and analytics applications. In the near future, we could see built-in ChatGPT tools for development IDEs that will assist software developers in suggesting, fixing, and reviewing code. Imagine the tools maturing to help us walk through code, explain the flow, and query the code base in natural language instead of text search. The possibilities are endless, and the impact on the IT industry is likely to be significant. Limitations Although ChatGPT is proficient in generating code for specific, simpler problems, it may not be as effective in generating code for more intricate problems. To tackle more complicated problems, we might need to divide them into smaller subproblems and utilize the tool to generate code blocks that we can combine to solve larger issues. It is worth noting that not all answers and generated code produced by ChatGPT are necessarily accurate. Therefore, it is essential to exercise your own intuition and judgment to validate the answers provided by the tool. Conclusion ChatGPT has the potential to revolutionize the IT industry by improving productivity and enabling faster software development. As the technology matures, we can expect to see ChatGPT integrated into more and more software applications, making it an indispensable tool for software professionals.

Smart Spaces - The Phygital World

Smart Spaces – The Phygital World

Smart Spaces – The Phygital World ATMECS – Content Team A smart space is a physical or virtual environment; it provides an increasingly open, linked, integrated, and cognitive ecosystem where humans and technology-enabled systems interact in a smart area. “Smart cities”, “digital workplaces,” “smart settings,” and “ambient intelligence” are some of the several terms for smart spaces. Automated tools, invoicing, and preventive maintenance for premise infrastructure, are a few common applications. Smart spaces alter how individuals engage with one another and impact diverse locations’ decision support systems (e.g., buildings, industries, and venues). COVID-19 accelerated the commercial acceptance of smart spaces as de facto rules for employee safety and social isolation emerged. We will see more chances to deliver more connected, coordinated, and intelligent solutions throughout target settings as enterprises embrace the capacity of smart spaces to integrate legacy systems with new technologies like IoT, AI etc. Smart spaces target a considerable mass, as they have a comprehensive, cross-industry appeal and may be used wherever monitoring and controlling individuals or managing mobile traffic is necessary. Benefits provided by smart spaces for businesses: Environmental advantages and financial savings: By adjusting heating, cooling, and lighting in real-time in response to weather changes and building occupancy, smart spaces lower energy expenditures. Smart spaces decrease greenhouse emissions, save money, and can be controlled or monitored remotely. Risk reduction: Smart spaces’ surveillance and wireless connectivity characteristics enable managers to identify issues early and frequently assist in preventing them from occurring. Smart spaces may lower the cost of maintenance and annoyance to residents/occupants by predicting or discovering early signals of issues in the physical facilities and infrastructure. A safer, more intelligent environment for work and play: Security and surveillance systems in smart spaces make it safer for people living and working there, enhancing visitors’ experience. Through sensor warnings for the presence of (for example) housework or workout equipment, smart rooms can provide convenience. Rapid screening and testing during the pandemic for fans returning to stadiums is an example application. Face recognition, RFIDs and Biometrics technologies have contributed to larger acceptance and viable use cases. Advantages of smart space to individuals: Every quantifiable aspect of efficiency is improved in every area by smart space technology. Smart technology often focuses on lowering the overall operational expenses of buildings by avoiding resource and utility waste. Meters for electricity or water may readily be equipped with sensors, making them prime candidates for smart monitoring. In places with risks of danger or accidents, smart spaces promote safety and risk reduction. Smart technology, such as intelligent robots in industrial applications, can replace human employees doing dangerous activities. Productivity has grown by replacing humans with these robots in tedious and repetitive jobs like shifting inventory palettes. Smart environments improve user experience since previous smart technology applications have eliminated many “clerical” duties we perform daily, such as checking lights. Adopting smart space technology is now driven by the need to enhance occupants’ experience. Physical buildings are becoming more collaborative, informative, and effective thanks to smart office technology connecting remote employees, smart conference rooms, scheduling systems, and sensors covering every facility component. Some manufacturers advertise a sizable central wall display that serves as a focal point for company activities and shows real-time information. For example, a hospital may use this display to highlight which physicians are present, which surgeries are planned, or which rooms are occupied. Which technologies are applied to produce Smart space? A widely used framework categorizes smart spaces into three distinct environments that interact as one: a digital computing environment, the physical setting, and the human environment layer.   Digital Computing Environment: This layer gives smart devices access to private network services or the internet, which enables them to connect to other components of the decentralized systems that run the smart space environment. Technologies here may include but not limited to: AI, Computer vision, Speech Recognition, Block Chain, Distributed systems, 5G Wireless Connectivity.   Physical Environment: The most diverse layer of smart spaces is the physical environment layer, which contains motion & proximity sensors, climate sensors (concerned with temperature, humidity, and pressure), accelerometers, magnetometers & gyroscopic sensors, gas & level sensors, RFID tagging, microprocessors etc. Human-environment layer: this includes devices that individuals carry with them, such as cellphones, smart wearable devices, and intrinsic smart devices like pacemakers. Different kinds of smart spaces include: Smart houses: Smart homes connect several household appliances and home systems, enhancing our living spaces’ efficiency and comfort. Smart buildings/venues: Smart buildings incorporate many characteristics of smart houses, including monitoring lighting, heating, cooling, security, access, parking areas, hydro and electricity meters, fire alarm systems, boilers, seating, roofing, and elevators etc. Smart industries: The networked smart factory has evolved into a smart space, a digital supply network where several factories and suppliers are interlinked. Smaller units may make choices based on system-wide data. Smart cities: For governance, smart cities are metropolitan regions supplied with smart space technology. Smart Stadiums: From crowd management to personalized concierge services, from 5G connectivity to instant replay notifications, smart stadiums like SoFi stadium in Los Angeles, CA are redefining the sports and entertainment experience. In Conclusion At ATMECS, we believe smart spaces offer tremendous opportunities for technological innovation and practical applications. As Bill Gates once said “The advance of technology is based on making it fit in so that you don’t really even notice it, so it’s part of everyday life.” Smart spaces are one such aspect of tech advancement where it infuses seamlessly with everyday life.

Why is writing a blog worth it?

Why is writing a blog worth it? Tushar Nayak – ATMECS Content Team ‘Thoughts’ constitute 95% of day-to-day life while a conscious stream of thoughts takes up to 90% out of that 95% and the remaining 5% comes right in between the hours of sleep when the brain goes into the resting state; repairs, re-wires and refreshes. Studies show that our mind never truly rests even when we sleep and to mentally compose yourself to sit down, gather your thoughts and put them on a piece of paper, is quite frankly, daunting. Neurological studies have also shown that humans, by the end of their life journey, have only used 7-10% of their cerebral capacity. Dolphins are the perfect example of what humans can do if they could use 20% of their brain; imagine communicating with each other through sonar. For now, let us not get into the fact-finding of ‘what if’ we used 100% of our brain and let us look at what amazing things we can do with just 7% of cerebral capacity. I read a book sometime back that said, ‘writing has a similar effect to our brain as monks have during their meditative state’. The spikes shown during neurological experiments conducted on both writers and monks have shown results in the same neighborhood. In simple terms, writing puts your brain in a conscious flow of meditative state. Honestly, it would be amazing to see many of the readers pick up writing as a part of their daily chores and in the process, find a way to let off some steam from their stress-filled days. My intent here is simple, to nudge you a little – to push you to take up writing a blog. Here’s a few pointers I picked up reflecting on my own blog experience – 1. Feel good about yourself – Give yourself a pat on your back for taking the initiative of writing your first blog (maybe second or third). 2. Pick an idea or a topic – Pick a topic around your area of interest, something you are passionate about. If you are confused, then ask your supervisor to help you with an idea that can be fronted on a corporate website. 3. Research and multiply – Curiosity is not everything and your writing can only be as strong as your research on the subject, it should add value and give readers a different outlook. 4. Shoot some bullets – While your brain is busy churning on an idea, use that time to narrow down on bullet points that you think will be important. 5. Naturally and emotionally – When you pick a topic, think of yourself as a reader and ask yourself one question – “Would you read something that is devoid of the writer’s emotion?” – Write naturally and fill it up with emotions. 6. Hook your readers – Do not get into the habit of approaching an idea broadly but think of a clear angle. Always think and write a strong opening statement, back it up with facts, figures, and studies. 7. Structure – Match your article with those bullet points to make sure you have infused all the points, read the entire piece as a reader to see whether it free flows, make necessary changes if you think something does not fit and finally, critique yourself as a reader before sharing it for proofread, suggestions and advice. 8. Closure – Close the article with your natural viewpoint; value add, if possible. If you strongly disagree with something, be gentle while offering a negative bias. 9. Every artist seeks credit (yourself included) – The best ways to keep your readers engaged is to ask them to respond. Keep the forum open for people to share their two cents and do not forget to ask them to share it on social media. At the end we all seek reward for our labor! 10. Momentum – Do not be too hard on yourself just because you cannot find an inspiring topic. Momentum is the key; keep at it and I am sure you will keep coming up with great ideas worth writing about. Most people never take up writing with the fear of being criticized for their writing style. I have known people in my professional career who were amazing writers and seen them abandon their passion of writing, languishing in some dark corner now, because they could not find inspiring topics amongst other reasons. It took me a few years to motivate myself to write, so I decided to reach out to experts and my supervisors on how to express myself better and within a few weeks of receiving help, I moved from mute to motivated and realized there was a common thread – “You don’t fear being criticized, you were afraid to reach out.” To end this on a positive note, I know some of the leaders at ATMECS take great pride in expressing themselves through writing. Why can’t you be one of them? Isn’t writing a blog worth your time? Author – Tushar Nayak, ATMECS Content Team

The Growing Impact of AI in today’s Sports, Media & Entertainment Industries

The Growing Impact of AI in today’s Sports, Media & Entertainment Industries ATMECS – Content Team Fifteen years ago, the term AI or artificial intelligence was labeled a dream concept. A lot of individuals linked this to the various movies and shows from the sci-fi world. A good example would be the Steven Speilberg movie, A.I, where a highly-advanced robot boy dreamed to be human to regain his mother’s love. However, as the years have changed, so has humanity’s stance about this idea. AI is the process of inserting human intelligence into machines allowing them to think and learn as humans do. In addition, it has helped the continuously growing amount of data generated and stored, as well as capitalized on it. On a global scale, 54% of CEOs have attested to an increase and improvement in their productivity after introducing AI solutions in businesses. Not only does it help improve work efficiency in all industries, but it also reduces the risk factors that a person might face in dangerous circumstances. Apart from the health and finance industries, there are a lot of other industries that have also faced a growing impact of AI solutions. The growing impact of AI on sports Based on recent reports, the AI market in the sports industry is expected to see a growth rate of 28.7% CAGR between 2021 and 2026. This is based on the increase in the use of technologies like loT, and the commoditization of cloud tech, helping with the storage and processing of big data obtained from various sports. Over the years, there has been an increase in the use of AI to help players maintain their health and increase their performance. From one aspect, this can be seen through the use of artificial intelligence-based coaching (mapping motion of an athlete to spatial analytics & machine learning). This way, a player receives different types and forms of coaching compared to one coach’s style. The system can also analyze the game plan of other teams, coming up with the best possible solution to win a game. While sports are competitive on the field, they have also become competitive in the front office, using AI obtained data like the game’s complexity and speed to create a competitive advantage. Apart from the actual game, AI has also affected the sportswear and equipment industry. Through smart apparel that can monitor and increase a player’s performance, a lot of manufacturing companies are looking forward to major distribution. AI has also had a major growth impact on fans and their level of engagement in the sports industry. Unlike where everything was done by hand, with voice technology and chatbots, teams and clubs can learn more about their fans, what they expect, and vice versa. This, in turn, provides richer content for fans, making it more personalized and engaging. As a whole, content moderation and content recommendation software have now become dependent on AI to strive due to the sheer global scale of digital content adoption. The growing impact of AI on media & entertainment From 2011 to 2020, many media and entertainment companies have adopted AI solutions to push for investments and produce high-end content that can draw the audience’s attention.

AI Bands Together with Humans in the War against Pandemic

AI Bands Together with Humans in the War against Pandemic Tushar Nayak – ATMECS Content Team Mother nature remains indomitable and unconquerable, but she also gave birth to human beings, our known universe’s most ingenious species. Looking back, we (humans) have been challenged time and time again, from surviving the ice age, to fighting the Antonine Plague of 165AD, The Black Death caused by the Bubonic plague of 1346 with a death toll of 200 million or Spanish flu of 1918 and the latest – Covid-19, we fought back with everything at our disposal and we have just begun to talk about wits and intelligence of humans. It was the creative spark in our ancestors, to do things efficiently, that brought about a change in human evolution no one ever anticipated; healing and healthcare being one of them. Yet, we cannot be ignorant of the fact that we have always remained a step behind and it is either because we are wired only to solve the problem(s) or maybe, mother nature does not trust us with 100% of our cerebral capacity yet she continues to leave a trail of breadcrumbs for us to look at the bigger picture. This concept of idea will remain debatable for years to come. Now that we have talked about healthcare we feel that we need help from an epidemiological level application that can not only solve problems but screen, diagnose and treat health problems while forecasting the future quicker than ever, in short, we need Artificial Intelligence to be the front runner. And, what’s more, surprising is that it was not humans who brought us news on Covid-19 first but an AI platform that scoured every inch of the internet and search indexes to find us a title that said, “7 found critically ill in Wuhan Province”. Unlike healthcare, AI has seen its rise in every sector from retail to banking from e-commerce to supermarkets, and continues to ease the stress on both organizations and end-customers. That said, “don’t you think that it will ease the burden of health workers and fight deadly viruses at the same time?” Seems like a crazy idea, well – “Every idea is crazy until it’s not.” Elon Musk. Let us look at the most critical elements Artificial Intelligence can take care of and believe us, we have factored in historical data against AI’s presence in the last few years and this is how it did (or, set out to do). With its strings of ever-evolving algorithms followed by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and/or Computed Tomography (CT) scan symptoms of ‘red flags’ thus alarm healthcare authorities. As humans, we are constantly looking for cost-effective solutions and AI can do just that by providing solutions on the go for faster decision making thus saving the life of the patients. Let us look at another scenario, the next time a patient comes knocking at the doctor’s office he or she can successfully trace the contact and monitor them for the future course of the disease and its reappearance, if at all. AI can track and predict the nature of the virus, its risk of infection, number of cases and death in a region, identify the most vulnerable regions through the available data and media platforms to find appropriate measures. It is also being used by research centres to analyze available data to fight Covid-19 thus speeding up drug testing in real-time. It is now a powerful tool to analyze, diagnose and test vaccination under-development. One of the areas where doctors and nurses spend most of their time is in the file room. Now, imagine finding all the information of a patient’s history on the click of a button. Then, multiply that times the number of walk-ins/interactions each day. It is hard to quantify the exponential savings AI could yield in terms of time and scale at which modern healthcare can impact saving lives and our communities. As a result oriented full-service engineering and R&D organization, all of us at ATMECS believe that Artificial Intelligence has been brought to existence for the good of humanity. It is our submission that AI, if nurtured right, will continue to become an essential part of our day to day lives and play a pivotal role in how we manage health care. We believe AI will increasingly become an enabler in detection, tracking and monitoring diagnosis not only on ground level but also on a scientific, systematic, and data-driven level reading through frequencies and patterns of health-related states and events (not limited to disease control). With that in mind, we strongly believe in bringing visible transformation for our clients through Automation, AI, adoption of leading edge integrated development platforms, CI/CD, DevOps, Cloud, and Big Data. To conclude, it is our humble belief that, through the above, neither are we overestimating AI’s presence in human life nor are we trying to undermine human intelligence but we are merely stating our opinion based on empirical evidence.
