How Big Data Can Be Used In The Future
It is for sure that the big data has taken the business world on squall! But since the era is all about new and changing trends. So what will be the future about Big Data? What are the predictions for the Big Data in upcoming days?
People nowadays are more relied over the digital world of the “instant expectations” which has made today’s world all cloud based. And eventually all these data produces and compiles data at an equal rapid rate.
It is a simple prediction that the data usage from each smartphone will be doubled in upcoming days, seeing the current scenario of data usage. Which proves that there will be obviously no slowing down in future. Hence the Big Data will be a booming thing in future.
The Future of Big Data
Increase in Volume –
It is a 100% successful forecasting that the volume of Big Data will be continue to grow exponentially. It is been a record that people have created 90% of today’s data in these couple of years. Which is around quintillion bytes per day data, which is mainly created by the internet, social media, text messages, media files, web searches.
People have become so techno savvy these days, even from looking for a simple “How to’s” till ordering online and eating. Maybe in upcoming days this will go to next level of people doing everything online. This will create billions and trillions of connected devices and embedded systems globally which will create, collect and share ample of data every day.
Big Thing in Big Data – Machine Learning –
Machine learning will be one of the fore front of Big Data Future. Many experts believe that, computers capabilities to learn from data will be considerably improved due to more advanced unsupervised algorithms, cognitive services and deeper personalization and hence as a result, there will be machines now which will read and identify emotions, explore space, drive cars for us, heal the sick and even shop for us.
This sounds fascinating and scary at the same time. But let’s see what different ways future shows us!
Algorithms over Software –
Businesses who tend to look for more and more customization in their systems. Will be somehow replacing Software over Algorithms. Since we cannot mould software according to our needs (we can but at very limited extend only). Also we cannot limit our needs according to software. Many businesses will look for purchasing algorithm instead of creating their own. After buying algorithm, one can add their own data to it rather than programming.
Whether it is Internet or Big Data, one of the most eminent things for any emerging technologies is its Security and Privacy of data. And as in future the volume of data will be increasing, privacy will be even more important since stakes will be much higher. Hence data security and privacy will be biggest challenge for Big Data industries.
Investments in Big Data –
Total revenues from Big Data and business analytics will rise in the coming years since business spending on Big Data has already surpasses billion dollars in 2019. Though the business investments in Big Data varies from company to company, the increase in Big Data spending will remain consistent. While Health care, resource and banking industries will be the fastest to adopt the Big Data, manufacturing industries will be ones who will be spending the most on the Big Data Technologies.
CDO’s will be in high demand! –
CDO? You might be knowing Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Chief Marketing Officer (CMO). But ever heard about Chief Data Officer (CDO)? Mostly it will be a NO! But surely in upcoming days it will be a generic thing. Because eventually there will be an emergence of this new position in businesses. Wider the spread of Bid Data Technologies, need of hiring a Chief Data Officer will be a mandatory thing.
Big Data: The Biggest Trait In Biology
Big Data is one of a promising research which can be the best solution in the field of bioinformatics and is also a “Self-start” for Researchers!
Big Data in Bioinformatics can be used to visualize different type of data in bioinformatics like proteomics, molecular pathways, metabolomics, pharmacogenomics and genomics. And as there will be more and more data generation in bioinformatics, there will be an increased demand in Big Data analytics.
If we peep back a decade ago, the field of sciences did not generate much data, hence nobody even the scientists had no troubles when it came to managing data and keeping up with it. But once the Human Genome Project was completed, the advancements in genomics and other technologies started to boom. And the biologists today are hampered with loads of Data which is increasing with a rapid speed. This massive amount of Data is essential in pharmaceuticals sector and healthcare fields.
And to overcome from this bottle neck of all the overburdened data, many biologists and computer scientists are joining their hands with the Big Data Club.
The Growth of Data –
The Biologists and life scientists are struggling with an enormous data sets and are facing many challenges like handling the data, processing it and moving the data from one source to another. To come up on the estimation of current year 2020, the growth of data generation may reach 4 trillion+ zettabytes. This estimation is clear to understand that a single sequenced human genome is about 140 gigabytes of data.
The choice and definition of keywords used to classify and retrieve data matters enormously to their subsequent for interpretation. Linking diverse datasets means making decisions about the concepts through which nature is best represented and investigated on.
In other terms we can say that the networks of concepts associated with data in big data infrastructures should be viewed as theories like: ways of seeing the biological world that guide scientific reasoning and the direction of research, which are often revised to take into consideration of the new discoveries.
Reshaping Biology with Big Data:
Big Data in biology is potentially transformative. There are many giants who have based their success on Big Data and its analysis. Industries and institutions can expect a lot from Big data which will be resulting in outcomes of improving efficiency, performance and increase in the revenue. When it comes to Biological communities, they are not immune to this process and are facing a data driven transformation which need to be actively addressed. Data sciences usually describes Big Data as data having four main characteristics – The 4 V’s
In biosciences technologies are allowing a constant increase of data production of patients, samples, tissues which are sequenced and re-sequenced in bulk. Single cell sequencing is expected to further skyrocket the amount of data produced. Big data domains are those which can store data in the order of magnitude of Peta to Exabyte.
It refers to speed efficiently transferring big files. Extreme data volumes require extreme remedies. In fact nowadays even with hi-speed internet, uploading 100 petabytes over the internet would take about 30 years. This shows itself the importance of Big Data.
These two V’s – Volume and Velocity and not yet a problem in Biosciences, but the other two V’s are still a challenge.
Veracity is about data uncertainty. Biases are inherent to genomic sequencing data and are occurring naturally due to error rates, using of different statistical model and experimental batch effects.
It is the most impacting characteristic of bioscience data, data from this domain comes in many different forms. Since biological data is heterogeneous, and to this respect Big Data means different signals and detection systems from same source. But somewhere this heterogeneity of biological data makes data integration more interesting and needy for refining the data and to discover unpredictable results from it!

Can People With AntiSocial Disorder Love?
Antisocial Personality Disorder are the people with mental disorder and typically do things as- display superficial charm and interest in social situation, disregard the welfare of others, behave like an irresponsible, display a clear lack of regret or guilt, manipulate and cheat to other, act impulsively and always maintain an inflated sense of self-importance.
So what is Anti-Social Personality Disorder?
Anti-Social Personality Disorder mainly captures many of the abnormal and deviant behavior associated with Psychopathy.
In general Psychopathy it is something like when a person is really horrific and deceitful, a serial killer kind of person we simply say “That person is a psychopath” But when it comes to the standpoint of being clinical and professional to the term, we can call it as an Anti-Social Personality Disorder.
It is just like any other Personality Disorder which cannot be diagnosed unless someone is 18. Because personality disorders are something that is pervasive. It somewhere invades all part of one’s lives. Anti-Social Personality Disorder is a pervasive pattern of ignorance for and violation of the rights of others. It actually begins in childhood itself and continues on into adulthood too.
Can People with Anti-Social Personality Disorder Spread Love and be in a Relationship?
When it comes to relationships and Love in it, they does not place a lot of value on it. They see relationships with others as a way for them to gain more, where they will put someone else in danger as a way to save themselves. Or in simple language we can say, they walk over people to get on the top. They do not place any worth on anyone else except for themselves.
They surely cannot foretell for romantic relationships. These individuals violate the relationship expectations and norms. Which most often results in negative consequences for the person in a relationship. Those who suffer from Anti-Social Personality Disorder are often found to be of self-serving behavior.
These behavior mainly include manipulation, lying, physical and verbal assaults, deception, impulsivity and all those activities which often engages illegal or bordering towards illegality.
They do not tend to care of thinking outside the scope that what they want and need and the partner’s feelings are always secondary or probably not even an issue for them.
These people always make their decisions based on their desires and own needs without knowing what their action will result on others.
True Love is not possible for people with Anti-Social Personality Disorder since True love defines a non-egocentric and healthy relationship with sharing, loving, giving and caring relation between two people. It requires a whole foundation of Deep love, Trust and Respect which people with Anti-Social Personality Disorder do not carry the capacity to understand.
If we consider in general that successful relationships are about intimacy and compromise, then person with Anti-Social Personality Disorder would not make a great partner!
They Can be in Love “BUT”
It’s not so that people with Anti-Social Personality Disorder can’t seem to be in love ever. Since they are good at faking Love and feelings!
At the beginning of relation, they will seem to be very loving and affectionate towards their partner. They can even be flattering and charming and seem to love a person but only towards the ones who can meet their end goal but again the love will eventually get vanished one’s the need of the person will get met.
A relationship with a person with Anti-Social Personality Disorder wouldn’t be a cakewalk as it will seem at first. Gradually the person with Anti-Social Personality Disorder will become controlling, abusive and manipulating. They simply enjoy making their partner feel bad, demeaning and always ruining and lowering their self-esteem.
And the worse thing is, they don’t even feel bad about it!

Constructive as Destructive –“Perfectionism”
December 30, 2019
“Perfectionism” – A Trait or Humbug?
Why Depression & Procastrination Go Hand In Hand?
Depression is nothing but a disorder, a “MOOD DISORDER” to be more precise. Where everything people do, gives them a feeling of sadness and loss of interest.
The more depressed we are we report procrastination, it is indirectly correlated with each other.
In happens mostly with us, whenever we are feeling depressed and low we are not in a mood to do anything, let that be your personal work or your official work. Knowing somewhere in back of your mind that if you do not complete the work we will be the one who will be suffering. But then also people choose to do something else instead of the task they know they should be doing actually.
But in fact due to depression we cannot focus on it and we just tend to push ourselves with coffee breaks, checking social media, end up watching movies, re-reading your mails and etc.
Don’t this sound familiar for all? This in nothing but Procrastination trap where many of us fall into very often. And it’s a cycle which starts with Depression and then Procrastination and again as a circumstance people fall for Depression eventually.
So initially it is very important to decrease the depression which will automatically lead towards taking people out of the procrastination trap.
Many a times it happens that, people do not understand that – “are they” or “are they not” striked with depression. So here are some common symptoms of depression –
Loss of interest, Loss of pleasure in activities, Anxiety, mood swings, feeling low and sad, apathy, general discontent, feeling of guilt,
Agitation, Restlessness, Excessive crying and sometime you want to cry but can’t cry, feeling irritating very quickly, Social isolation.
Early awakening, awakening in between at mid-night and no sleep, excessive sleepiness, insomnia, or restless sleep with continuous running thoughts in mind.
Loss of appetite, someone’s case it’s like they eat excessively when depression hits, feeling fatigue.
Lack of concentration, Suicidal thoughts, slow down and laziness in activities, repeatedly going over thoughts, overthinking, helpless outlook on life.
Change in sudden body shape- Sudden drop in wait or weight loss, dark circles under eyes, feeling tired internally.
So these are some common symptoms of depression, which will lead you towards the worst experiences and further may cause damage physically and emotionally too.
Now what next??
As Depression and Procrastination are inter-related with each other. Depression is the root cause of procrastination and somewhere again procrastination will result in increase of the depression an take it to level. So why not cut down the procrastination stage and avoid the depression and kill it gradually! So let’s kill the virus (Procrastination) so that the disease (Depression) will not spread!
Strictly follow the rule of “Stitch in Time, Saves Nine” –
If you know that you are the person who needs to complete this task, do it now! Do not delay or distract yourself, because at the end you are one who will suffer by the circumstances and put yourself into trouble.
Do it Today! –
Again, many a times it’s irritating, doing same work on repeat! But changing your outlook is important here. Break them down into smaller tasks which are realistic and get best out of it with achievable and fruitful goal. This will motivate you and eventually you will end it up doing TODAY.
Avoid Distractions –
Avoid situations that provide distractions or disrupt your thinking or productivity. I don’t suggest that don’t do what you love. Do take time for friends, family or things you love. But if you want to study or work at the same time, do schedule time and stick to it in an appropriate environment without distractions.

Sesame Street, Once upon a Monster –
It is a cute video game with good animations where this game brings sesame street favorites like Elmo and Cookie Monster together, and they start narrating the stories and get the kids engaged and get moving through a series of fun and learning games.
Spelling Challenges –
Many students for starters needs a severe help in making the spellings, This game is a fun way to teach spellings and get them into routine practice. In total this game contains 25000 words at 100 different levels. The complex words get introduced gradually as we go to next levels.
Smarty Pants –
Every student and even their parents will love to play this game. This is a trivia game, a real treat from Electronic arts. Just like Trivial Pursuit, the game quizzes players on varying topics from History, to sports, to science, in challenging players with right answers and to show their skills
Brain Age –
This is also one of the games which both parents as well as kids at school will love to play and should be taught in schools too. This application trains the brain to become a mental athlete. From maths, to logic and word problems, there are n number of challenges that will help learners in every aspect of education. Brain age has a series of games and tests which will help students to built-up their knowledge they need to test on but in a fun way!
“These few video games are just an example to convey the message that there are too many such games developed out there for enhancement of students learning process and to make it a fun way to learn complex subjects too.”

Managing Toddlers: The Time-Out Strategy
December 17, 2019
Toddlers Varying Degrees – “Terrible Twos”
Has the toddler started denying to everything you think is good for them, started kicking, yelling, crying, smashing things and saying short words like “it’s mine”, “no”, “yuk” and inventing new daily?
My Friend, that’s the phase of “Terrible Twos”!
No matter how annoying and frazzled this phase terrible twos is, but it’s a mandatory phase in every child’s development and also an indication that the toddler has reached major development milestones.
When this Phase Begins?
The Phase of terrible twos begins when your toddler turns around 18 months. Probably starts when they begin to learn short words, try to start walking, when their expectations and views don’t always match with yours, when they begin to expose themselves to outside world and try to understand things.
This phase is not always necessary that comes around 18 Months but may occur in between of 18-30 Months. And this behavior can even last up till 3 years, and it starts settling back to normal after that.
Managing Terrible Twos:
Is there anything that tests your diffidence and forbearance more than your toddler throwing tantrums and meltdowns in front of you? They're unavoidable, but they're not unstoppable.
Here are a few tips on how to soothe your little ones when they go crazy.
The main thing people think of terrible twos is tantrums and this is just melt downs over anything.
Most often the things which provoke a tantrum for a toddler is you just took away something that they were messing with which in most cases nowadays is “Smartphone” which they just found is exploring and interesting, parents suddenly comes and swipes it away which leads to the meltdown.
Then in such case instead of trying to control the tantrum - turn around, don’t pay attention to the meltdown, once the meltdown is coming to settling stage divert them immediately with for eg: let’s now go play with this toy or let’s go out and play, or something to just distract them.
Praise the good behavior:
Praise the behavior which you approve. If your child is going through something that’s frustrating and you say “no”, and they react well, give them the positive feedback on this behavior. This works well!
Try and get to teach them good thoughts and behavior when they are in good mood mode. Teach them to have some control by offering them with choices. “Would you like to wear white cap or a blue hat?”
Don’t try and fulfill their all demands just to avoid the embarrassing situations at public places, since this will turn into a habit and their mind will save this “If we meltdown in public places, we will get whatever we want” and they will behave the same whenever you are at such public places like any malls, shopping marts, etc..
Don’t yell at them or spank and hit them, since they will replicate this and start behaving same way with others and create a violent mind-set.
Keep your rule book simple with an offering of brief explanations. Example, tell your toddler to greet people visiting your home. Holding hands while crossing the street.
Keep a proper schedule of regular meals and sleep. Irregularity in meals and sleeps can lead your kid more towards less desirable behavior.
Don’t try to scare your toddlers off with silly things, instead give them brief explanations of the circumstances.
Be specific to things you want to get introduced with your toddlers. Be precise towards at what stage, what things to be introduced to kids, go step by step. Try and avoid gadgets, video games, smartphones to be introduced to your toddler at such stage of age.

The Most Valuable Asset of an Organization- -“It’s People”

“Create culture” instead of “measuring” it!
It has been surveyed that around 50% of an organization’s employees leave their jobs just because of unhealthy and poor organizational culture. Thus, if coming upon to the point of measuring your organizational culture and values on a regular basis will provide you with important data on how to sustain a positive and happy work environment which will help you achieve success and stick to your loyal employees.
But again the question arises, how the organizational culture is to be measured? There are several ways, but one should understand the difference between Workplace Environment and Workplace Culture. Although they are correlated with each other but there is a vast difference between these two terms, wherein Workplace Environment describes shared perceptions within the organization, while an organizational work culture includes many more factors, like emotional components as well as values, beliefs, assumptions, and other aspects that form the set of standard functioning within the organization.
Organizational Culture is an intense factor that drives a company. It’s a term more like which brings stability and is based on relationship and mutual understanding history. Regular Assessments The Culture assessments of any organization are something that has to be done not just once in a year but on a periodical basis. Which keeps an organization aware of what the running scenarios are ongoing within employees. This results in more awareness about the culture from different perspectives, which might save the situation to get worse.
Business needs scorecard (BNS) BNS is a scorecard that maps positive and potential values using 6 main different categories to measure organizational culture finance:
This includes the VALUE and BEHAVIOUR which boosts the growth of an organization with aspects of profits and stability
Fitness: This includes and dragoons the effectiveness with regards to productivity, efficiency, performance and etc.
Evolution: This point involves the values and behavior that shows ingenuity, resourcefulness, innovation, individuality and creativity and all such factors which helps the organization to evolve more and more.
Culture: It describes each individual’s belief, faith, engagement, supportive behavior, relay, proper communication, and at last a protective and concerned environment.
External Relations: It is all about how well you present yourself and maintain relationships with our customers, competitors, Clients and etc.
Contribution towards Society: It contributes to the relation of an organization with the external society.
Employee Retention: Always maintain and improve employee retention strategies. And to maintain this an organization should always think about the things from the point of view of Team members.
Of Course, every employee has its own USP, goals, and way of working towards it. Every employee loves the feeling of being appreciated by the superiors and to be treated with fair respect and value for their dedication and performance. This concern of an organization creates a place in one’s heart and tends to convert that employee into a loyal one with an add-on energy level.
Strategies to improve a “Well Organized Workplace culture” -
Communication and Feedback Sessions: “Ideas” “Concerns” “Questions” should be the three important parameters to be taken into consideration by the staff members on a regular basis. Which will create an environment of openness? Recognition and reward every month: Make it a habit always to appreciate one for their work, let that be a simple mail, a small card or applause for that sake. Let the employees be recognized for what they deserve. Training and Development: Every person seeks for “Advancement” in his way of working, and developing his performance and simultaneously organizational growth.
The organization should support such employees with reimbursement and training modules.
Mentorship Programs: The combination of Pairing an employee with a Mentor is the best combination and benefits a lot for both the Mentor as well as the Employee.
Team Celebrations: This factor is one of the most important aspects of any organization, because if the team can celebrate success together that it will also stand with the other team member while anything slips out of way. And to bring it back on track.
