Thankfully, no more “disrupt”! No #disrupting Not!


Thankfully, no more “disrupt”! No! Not that much, not that more! At least not that flood! Years 2016 & 2017 mostly everywhere I saw the prefix disrupt+ words “disrupts” & “disrupting” not just in technology, markets & related, not just industry, but across the globe across areas. It was so general & common use! I’m not saying it’s in hibernation mode this year or dead.

I was not just overwhelmed by the overuse of “disrupt” but baffled as to the common knowledge & mine, & use, it was actually in the negative & not revolutionary/inspirational. Earlier that word I could hear/read only in political circles & functioning: disrupting Parliament/Sessions/Events; & then suddenly movement / ideology is disrupting etc.

Most disrupting (/ occurring) combination / terms / phrases:

disrupting policy (/market policy, govt…);

disrupting innovation, disrupting idea;

such & so technology disrupting

digital disruption (much more than earlier digital / business transformation)

disrupting trend

discovery & findings going to disrupt

DICTIONARY meaning: Interrupt (an event, activity, or process) by causing a disturbance or problem.

>Drastically alter or destroy the structure of

>to break apart

>to throw into disorder

>to interrupt the normal course or unity of

>to throw into confusion or disorder

>to interrupt or impede

Origin:

Late Middle English: from Latin disrupt- ‘broken apart’, disruptus, from the common verb disrumpere.

(“to break or burst asunder”), from dis-, di- (“apart, asunder”) + rumpere (“to break”).

So why disrupt? Because it got a (new!) meaning to it:

To improve a product or service in ways that displace an established one and surprise the market.

That kind was definitely thought provoking & compelling almost any body and everybody using the buzz-word/catch-phrase prefix disrupt!

Is it safe to say “disrupt” the father of notion (if not common child), not just notion/s, but of all (disrupting) posts/articles/views/proposals/publications & ideas?

The rescuer, the insurance & guarantee of a disrupting one!

disrupt* -the  father & mother of all disrupting ones. The AllMighty!

It was as if it was trash (forget even disrupting) if it didn’t contain the word/prefix “disrupt” itself!

Whose brain child by the way?

It’s not about bucking the trend, not just buzzing, but disrupting!

The word that caught & captured the imagination, changed many a life & caught so many views! so disrupting! that even “out of box” got boxed out!

Oops! Did I use so many disrupts!? Not disrupting!

Cheers!

#FacialRecognition: where are we today? Future?


FacialRecognition! Where are we today?

Not just Phone/SmartPhone, wherever in use or to be, how capable is the current set / technology & #AI today in terms of FaceDetection & FacialRecognition?

e.g.: Can a #iPhone/X (if not #LGPhone) detect a face damaged/burnt? Can #AADHAAR detect & authenticate a damaged/burnt face correctly?

Condition: facial security was set before the incident. 

Can an acid attack survivor, burns/accident/attack survivor be able to unlock/lock the device / pass the authentication in any security/ID?

How’s Google, Amazon, Microsoft or even any start-up or entity in this context?

Google’s AI over drawing(freehand on-screen) face detection I had tried online a few months back, but not to the expectation. It gave me a different result of a non-living object!

Is it safe to conclude that in case of facial makeover, transplant or any mutation it will go undetected?

It’s not about using mask scenarios, but real incidents.

What about patients with memory loss and so on?

Machine Learning be in this direction.

Gone Cases: Eyes/Iris if damaged. Fingers if gone? Voice/Speech: if sore throat or gone?

The nations / govt. & military/defence/security should have mechanism to detect a false face / impersonation.

That should be the roadmap. The future.

(Next: Sci-fi/Tech / Movies, bring me in!)
