Shortage of skilled digital talent could threaten up to 2 lakh IT

first_imgEmployees work at their desks inside IT company Tech Mahindra office building in Noida in the outskirts of New Delhi March 18, 2013. [Representational Image]Reuters fileLack of skilled digital talent could threaten up to 2 lakh jobs per year in the IT sector, aqccording to the latest Economic Survey. The report also suggested the government to address issues related to infrastructure in smaller cities and towns.”The job cuts in IT sector will be between 1.75 lakh and 2 lakh annually for next three years due to under-preparedness in adapting to newer technologies,” the survey quoted executive search firm Head Hunters India as saying, Deccan Herald reported.It added that the growth in digital technologies like cloud-based services is taking place at a faster rate due to which companies would have to learn those new technologies and undergo reskilling training.Automation puts 69 per cent jobs in India, 77 per cent jobs in China and 85 per cent jobs in Ethiopia at risk, according to a report released by the World Bank.However, the survey is not as cynical as an earlier McKinsey report, which had stated that almost half the workforce in IT firms would become “irrelevant” in the next 3-4 years. The report had added that the big challenge ahead for the IT industry would be to reskill 50-60 percent of the workforce as there would be considerable shift in technologies.The Economic Survey, which has been authored by Chief Economic Adviser Arvind Subramanian, said that some of the obstacles in developing digital skill talent in tier II and III cities included under-developed infrastructure. The survey also called for the easing of restrictions on startups to enable better kill development.Several firms in India have set up programs to reskill not just their existing employees but also freshers. Nasscom said that IT companies have added about 1.7 lakh jobs in the 2016-17 period. They are expected to hire about 1.5 lakh employees this year.The top five IT companies hired around 50,000 people in the same period, the survey quoted Nasscom as saying. It had also stated earlier that the world was moving towards automation and digital services and employees will have to “re-skill or perish.”Where and how does an IT professional reskill? Re-skilling seems to be the only way. [Representational Image]ReutersReskilling IT professionals through online courses seems to be the solution. IT giant Infosys, which is believed to be hiring freshers through campus placements, is helping its employees get acquainted with the industry and its current trends through online courses.The freshers are asked to pick a paid online course on Udacity, an online education provider, as part of their re-skilling programme. After the completion of the course, they are sent for training to Infosys’ Mysore facility.The top five Indian IT firms — TCS, Infosys, Wipro, HCL Technologies and Tech Mahindra — are known to take up re-skilling exercises on a regular basis.”The need to retrain the workforce is further amplified with the automation of the old work procesess. Hence, companies need new skills. In addition to different technical skills digital also requires employees to acquire new soft skills. All this is being addressed by investing in training in design thinking and agile development methodologies,” Peter Bendor-Samuel, founder and chief executive officer of Everest Group, a global outsourcing advisory, told Business Standard.”If you are not skilling yourself, you are obsolete. You are running a race that is not there,” said Y Shekar, co-promoter, Skillablers Technologies Private Limited.Online education providers are also specifically designing courses to re-skill IT professionals. For instance, online training company Simplilearn is offering scholarships called “Bounce Back,” which lets the IT employees take up online courses and programmes to keep up with the current trends and the latest technology.last_img read more

Old Mans Journey is Arthouse Captain Toad

first_imgStay on target If you have a Nintendo Switch, chances are you also have The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The new Zelda is a massive, phenomenal game that you can and should play for dozens of hours. But eventually, you’re going to want to play something new on your Nintendo console/handheld hybrid. Switch Games That Aren’t Zelda is a new column highlighting cool, smaller Switch games to check out once you’ve saved Hyrule.Old Man’s Journey isn’t about cementing yourself as one of the best English actors of your generation, landing juicy roles in films in Sid and Nancy, Dracula, The Dark Knight, and Darkest Hour. That’s Gary Oldman’s Journey, and it’s still just in planning stages. Old Man’s Journey is a cozy little puzzle game from Broken Rules about taking a nice, reflective walk. And after impressing us on mobile last year, it’s now available on Nintendo Switch.Old Man’s Journey’s mobile roots are pretty obvious. You can move a cursor around with analog sticks, but the experience is clearly designed around a touch screen. Your goal is to move the Old Man to the end of each of the 15 bite-sized stages that make up the one or two-hour campaign. But because he’s so old, jumping is out of the question. So like fellow anti-platformer Captain Toad, Old Man’s Journey is about manipulating the environment itself to help out the hero.AdChoices广告A typical puzzle involves physically dragging different parallax layers of the environment closer to each other. Once they form an interconnected path, the old man can then move forward. This can really mess with your perspective. A structure you thought was far in the background is suddenly only a few footsteps away in the flattened 2D plane. And there are later clever varied puzzles that test your knowledge of how the environmental manipulation works as you herd sheep, chase waterfalls, or guide a train.But Old Man’s Journey isn’t interested in warping your brain like, say, Gorogoa. It doesn’t want you to get exhausted. It just wants you and this old man to go for a nice and easy walk, or the video game equivalent of a nice and easy walk. Each stage is a gorgeous, relaxing, pastel vista painting like something from a European children’s book. The animations as you tug on the environment are soft and warm and gentle. The Old Man himself looks like Santa in a black V-neck on holiday.That isn’t to say the game is shallow. The outer pleasantness contrasts nicely with the wordless hints we get of the Old Man’s melancholy backstory at the end of each stage. It’s real “opening ten minutes of Pixar’s Up” type stuff. You don’t make a game with “Old Man” in the title without touching on mortality.Still, Old Man’s Journey isn’t the game for you if you want overwhelming gameplay or thematic depth. It’s an enjoyable and relaxing arthouse casual game, and that’s perfectly fine. There are times when that’s absolutely all a busy person, old or old at heart, can handle.Buy it now!Buy Nintendo labo Variety Kit.Buy Nintendo Labo Robot Kit.Nintendo SwitchProtect Your Nintendo Switch With These Awesome CasesLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Artist to send picture disc into orbit to serve as time capsule

first_img Explore further Toshiba Announces 51GB Triple-Layer HD DVD-ROM Disc (Phys.org)—Multimedia artist Trevor Paglen, part of a group known as Creative Time, has created a gold-plated crystalline silicon disc with bit mapped re-creations of photographs etched onto its surface. The disc is to serve as a form of time capsule that will orbit Earth for billions of years—if all goes according to plan. The disc, containing 100 images and referred to as the “Last Pictures” project, has been attached to the EchoStar XVI satellite, scheduled for launch from the Baikonur Cosmodrome sometime over the next few months. © 2012 Phys.org The idea behind the project is to provide a record of human existence to intelligent life forms—as yet undiscovered—from other parts of the galaxy. The group at Creative Time notes on their website that they expect human civilization to disappear long before the disc is destroyed by the Sun, five billion years from now when the Sun becomes a red giant. They believe the disc, along with its images, will survive. Because, unlike the copper discs sent with the Voyager spacecraft, it’s made of silicon which has a crystalline structure.Paglen has been assembling the collection of pictures for nearly five years, speaking with scientists, artists, geologists, philosophers and mathematicians about ways in which to represent the history of Earth’s people. Despite his work, Paglen has also spoken publicly about his belief that no one will ever find the disc and view his work. Also, his assumption that the disc will survive in orbit for billions of years might have one fatal flaw: it’s quite possible that scientists will develop a method to clear the space debris circling the planet, consequently removing the EchoStar XVI satellite from its geosynchronous orbit long before we as a civilization go extinct. Which, of course, is also not a certainty. The pictures aren’t meant to offer a chronological history of the planet or of the human beings that evolved to become its dominant species. Instead, they are meant to convey a sense of who we are in the event that “anyone else” ever wants to know.

Boeing demonstrates lightest metal ever

first_imgThe team at HRL suggest that the material could also eventually make its way into space-bound vehicles, for the very same reasons it would be useful in aircraft, to save on weight—plus its ability to compress might mean sending up objects that could be expanded after launch, saving on space in a cargo hold. © 2015 Phys.org The more an airplane weighs, the more fuel it uses during takeoff, while flying and during landing, thus efforts to create lighter materials to replace those already in use have been underway for quite some time. The development team has released a video of the new material (in which they refer to it as a 3D open cellular polymer structure) in action—demonstrating its lightness by placing a rectangular cuboid atop a dandelion. The team also points out that the material also has a high degree of absorption, which means it can be depressed and bounce back—another feature that would come in handy on airplanes.It appears at this time that Boeing is hoping the material can be used inside the cabin, rather than as a major structural component, e.g. in overhead bins, under the floor, or in other fixtures that are used to create an environment inside of a modern aircraft.In the earlier paper the researchers described making the material first by creating a template and then by coating it with electroless nickel plating—afterwards the template was removed via etching. The result was a material that got its strength from the lattice, similar to the way bones grow to be strong despite being light, though with the lattice it is taken down to the micro scale—the lattice was a network of extremely tiny tubes with walls that had a thickness of just 100 nanometers, all made of a nickel-phosphorus alloy, though it is still not clear if the same materials were used in the newly updated microlattice. Citation: Boeing demonstrates lightest metal ever (2015, October 15) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2015-10-boeing-lightest-metal.html HRL’s breakthrough development of ultralight microlattice materials recognized Journal information: Sciencecenter_img Explore further (Phys.org)—Airplane maker Boeing has unveiled what it calls the “The Lightest Metal Ever”—called microlattice, the material is a construct that is 99.99 per cent air. It has been developed by Boeing’s HRL Laboratories along with colleagues at the University of California and the California Institute of Technology. The material has been developed as a way to reduce weight on airplanes or even rockets—a paper describing the development of the material was written by the team and published in the journal Science back in 2011—though the researchers have not yet revealed what sort of changes have been made since that time.

West Bengal Khadi Village Industries Board to develop cotton khadi in state

first_imgKolkata: Buoyed by the success of project Muslin, the West Bengal Khadi and Village Industries Board (WBKVIB) is taking up a project for the development of cotton khadi in Bengal. The project will encompass 14 of the 23 states in Bengal.”Our main objective is to train artisans in churning out products as per the present market demand. We will provide them with infrastructure and most importantly, create a platform for marketing their products,” said Mrityunjoy Bandyopadhyay, CEO of WBKVIB.

Around 4,950 artisans will get the training and the project cost will be to the tune of Rs 16.52 crore. It may be mentioned that there are about 115 Khadi institutions and societies working in the area of cotton khadi production in Bengal at present. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedThe artisans are now mostly producing traditional items of white khadi and conventional items of cotton khadi. “At present, there is a huge demand for cotton khadi, both in domestic and international markets, mainly due to its eco-friendly nature. We will assist them in integrating modern design, equip them in order to cater to the demands and bridge the gap between supply and demand.” a senior official of WBKVIB said. Hand-spun and hand woven cotton khadi fabric bear a unique feeling and make consumers very comfortable as the fabric feels warm during winters and cool during summers. According to a senior official of WBKVIB, some of the challenges that are affecting the sector include: stiff competition with power loom products as the cost of production in khadi sector is high. “We will take adequate steps to overcome the challenges, such as lack of storage facility, lack of quality control and testing facility, absence of branding etc,” the official maintained. It may be mentioned that production of khadi played an important role in the Indian Freedom Movement to discourage the Indians from wearing foreign clothes.last_img read more

Nuclear Fun for the Whole Family Strange Atomic Toys of the 1950s

first_imgMany toys reflect the times in which they were popular and in the 1950s, atomic toys were just that. The ushering in of the computer age saw the creation of Simon, a light up memory game, the Atari 2600 game console, and the Nintendo Game Boy. In the 1950s, however, technology was geared toward the newly discovered atomic energy and nuclear bomb testing—and toys followed suit. The first nuclear test took place on July 16, 1945 in White Sands, New Mexico, sixty five miles northwest of Las Vegas. People were unaware of the dangers of radiation and actually rushed to Las Vegas to party and watch the mushroom clouds. No one in the vicinity was evacuated, and soldiers were watching from nearby. After this, the public couldn’t get enough of everything “atomic” and the fad was on.A toy atomic bomb set in box in the permanent collection of The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. CC by-SA 3.0Some of the toys made during this time reflected the naivety about radiation. According to orau.org, one of the first toys was the Porter Atomic Energy Kit that came with two glass vials: one with uranium ore and the other with a “uranium chemical”. It also included a radioactive detection screen and a brochure, The Story of Atomic Energy, as well as a spinthariscope, a device which shows the occurrence of alpha particles by flashes on a fluorescent screen.The American Basic Science Club offered the Atomic Energy Lab from 1957 until 1973 and it included a spinthariscope, a cloud chamber, a radioactive detection screen, an electroscope, and radium and uranium ore.Giant Atomic Bomb toy at the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. Photo: Daniel Schwen – CC BY-SA 4.0In 1950, The Gilbert Hall of Science produced a U-238 Atomic Energy Lab complete with “four types of uranium ore, a beta-alpha source, a pure beta source, a gamma source, a spinthariscope, a cloud chamber with its own short-lived alpha source, an electroscope, a Geiger counter, a manual, a comic book, Dagwood Splits the Atom [yes, that’s Blondie’s husband], and a government manual titled Prospecting for Uranium.” It sold for fifty dollars—comparable to five hundred dollars today. Owners got a special coupon to order more of the radioactive substances due to the possible short life of the materials. Seen on A.C.

Author: Joe Mabel – CC BY-SA 3.0Moving down to less dangerous toys, in 1955, an Atomic Geiger Counter was manufactured by Bell Products and sold with a mining license, claim stake, prospectus, and registration card, but it only detected items made of iron.Tin toy guns with a futuristic design were made in Japan in the late 1950s to early 1960s and marketed with such names as the Atomic Disintegrator and the Buck Rogers Atomic Pistol. They often used caps and had a transparent window which showed sparks when one pulled the trigger.Mister Atomic, back side.

The goal was to have your country be the last one standing after the big one hit.Replica Atomic Robot Man. Author: D J Shin – CC BY-SA 3.0In the board game category, oaru.org tells about the Uranium board game created by Saalfield Publishing in Akron, Ohio. In this game, the first person to discover uranium and make it to the Claim Office wins. BoardGameGeek shows Uranium Rush, invented by Gardner Games which was chosen as one of the outstanding toys for 1955. It was electric and allowed the players to test if their mine claim was any good. A small round tube with wires coming out the top called a “Geiger counter” touched the tip of a small metal circle around the mine and if it buzzed and lit up your mine was good.Comic books were extremely popular in the 1950s and 1960s so comic book publishers came up with Atomic Mouse who took U-235 pills to gain super strength. In 1955, Atomic Rabbit ate carrots grown in uranium soil for his superpowers. Inside the Atom was an educational comic book that touted nuclear power.Replica Atomic Robot Man. Author: D J Shin – CC BY-SA 3.0In the 1962 Sears Christmas catalog there was even a doll house that featured a fallout shelter.In 1959, Revell sold a very detailed Westinghouse Atomic Power Plant model kit which included a nuclear reactor vessel, circulating pumps, steam generators, power lines, and towers with an electrical substation and much more. A small booklet, A New World of Atomic Power, by Dr. William E. Shoupp of Westinghouse was also included. This item is sometimes for sale on Ebay.Gradually, the government realized that the effects of nuclear fallout could cause cancer, and, in 1962, above ground testing was discontinued but underground testing went on until 1992. Studies done in 1990 showed nuclear fallout drifted in the wind and affected the states of Nevada, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Oregon, and Washington, and cancer rates rose sharply from 1950 to 1980.Related Article: Uranium in the Plates? Our Ancestors Dined off of Radioactive TablewareThe soldiers who were present at the tests have had an increased mortality rate from leukemia, nasal cancer, and prostate cancer. The National Association of Atomic Veterans was founded in the 1990s to help with recognition of the health concerns of the atomic veterans and to assist those who have fallen ill because of radiation. The NAAV points out that what many people don’t realize is that people didn’t have to be exposed to the radiation to be affected by it. Radiation settled in the grass, and, when cows ate the tainted grass, it passed into their milk and was delivered to the person who drank the milk. The poison collected in the thyroid glands and the chance of thyroid cancer dramatically rose. The National Association of Atomic Veterans is a non-profit organization and survives due to volunteering and donations.last_img read more

Puma Teases SelfLacing Sneaker to Compete With Nikes

first_img Step aside, Nike. Puma on Thursday unveiled its own self-lacing sneaker to compete with the Adapt BB Nike introduced last month.Slated for release in 2020, the Puma Fi features a tiny motor, which powers a cable system that “laces” the training shoe when you swipe a touch module on the tongue, Puma said in a news release. And that’s not its only trick.”It comes with a smart sensing capability that learns the shape of the foot of each user and adapts the fit of the shoe to the individual,” Puma wrote. “Athletes can also monitor, adjust, and finetune fit through a smartphone app. To make things even more athlete-friendly, users can make on-the-fly adjustments with their Apple Watch$699.99 at Apple Store.”Check out the video below for a peek at the Puma Fi.Puma is now seeking “tech-savvy” volunteers to beta test the upcoming shoe and provide feedback about its design, usability, and engineering. Interested individuals can sign up for the Fi beta test program via Puma’s Pumatrac app, which is available for iOS and Android.According to Engadget, the Fi will be priced at $330 when it arrives next year, undercutting Nike’s $350 Adapt BB.Fi isn’t the only high-tech Puma shoe to get excited about. The company recently revived a computerized running shoe it first released in 1986 called the RS-Computer, updating it with Bluetooth support and a dedicated app. Getting your hands on the new RS-Computer might be a challenge, however: Puma only plans to release 86 globally, honoring the year they were first released. 2 min read February 1, 2019 This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.
