We are living in an age where technology and gadgets are constantly screaming for our attention and disconnecting people, especially the younger generation from the real world. The new dawn of challenges requires new and smarter parenting approach that involves giving the right dose of technology to kids and ensuring that they are protected from the negative side of the coin.
Technology has evolved a lot in the past few years. We've seen technological revolutions, be it AI turning the world around or virtual reality being able to transfer us to a different world. The metaverse has been a great addition to the fleet.
Technology is often perceived as exclusively focused on digital, high-tech industries, or even nano-sciences. However, technology has existed since the earliest traces of human life and has continually manifested itself in its most primitive forms.

In conversation with Dr. Jonah Berger, Marketing Professor at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania
Dr. Jonah Berger is a marketing professor at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and a world-renowned expert on innovation, word of mouth, change, and why products, ideas, and services catch on. He is an internationally bestselling author of The Catalyst: How to Change Anyone’s Mind, Contagious: Why Things Catch On, and Invisible Influence: The Hidden Forces that Shape Behavior. He has published over 50 articles in top-tier academic journals, teaches Wharton’s highest-rated online course, and popular accounts of his work often appear in places like Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and Harvard Business Review.
By offering data-driven insights into the effectiveness and performance of their processes and systems, opening up fresh perspectives on customer behavior and pain spots, and generating new business prospects, IoT enables organizations to innovate and flourish.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA), signed into law by President Bill Clinton on August 21, 1996, has been routinely considered a model piece of privacy legislation. Prior to its creation, a patchwork of both state and federal laws governed the communication, distribution, and use of medical data for patient care and finances. Inconsistencies in these laws allowed the access of these data without any authorization, including personal sanctioning of sharing, from the individual whose data was to be used for the purposes of assessing anyone's potential for production and maintenance.
Would you believe me if I told you that there's a possibility of the creation of a battery that would never lose charge? Quantum batteries sound like stuff from sci-fi novels, but they are batteries that never run out of charge. They would come as a blessing to our digital world filled with electronics, where almost everything around us runs on energy.
Quantum technologies can improve various processes, from online trading to sophisticated chemical simulations and even nanotechnology engineering. A quantum revolution is taking place, although it is still in its early stages. The scenario in which quantum machines unambiguously outperform any conventional (classical) hardware for a given computational task – is the real holy grail for quantum physicists. If we can attain quantum supremacy, the world will ultimately benefit from quantum mechanics for the first time, which has never been feasible before.
The German government coined the term Industry 4.0 (Industrie 4.0 originally) while working on a project to digitize the manufacturing industry. In 2011, this term was made public, describing the potential paradigm shift in the industrial automation sector caused by the cyber-physical systems responsible for the evolution of new business models.

India-UK ‘Green Grids’ Initiative Can Boost Transition to Clean Energy Worldwide
According to a recent assessment by the International Energy Agency, annual grid expansion and modernization investments should quadruple from $260 billion to $800 billion by 2030. Prime Minister Narendra Modi (India) and his British counterpart Boris Johnson jointly presented a new flagship global project, backed by over 80 countries, to significantly accelerate the global transition to sustainable energy at the COP26 World Leaders' Summit in Glasgow.
Aerogels are ultra-light solids that are composed of 99.8% air. Despite being very light, they have high thermal conductivity and can block out extreme cold or heat. This makes them perfect for solar devices and windows that need energy efficiency. Transparent aerogel applications are becoming more popular as researchers find new and innovative ways to take advantage of this unique material.
Today, this new practice is booming, with increasingly innovative projects showing great promise. So what exactly is agrivoltaism? This technique combines agricultural production and photovoltaic energy production on the same plot, consists of placing photovoltaic louvres above certain crops.

Green Technology Round-up of 2021
The twenty-first year of the 21st century has been a year of revolution in the field of technology. A significant number of highly lucrative and widely used technologies from the early 2000s have completely disappeared, and newer, better ones have replaced them.
Microsoft, in the run-up to 2014, was dying on its tracks. From hot-headed company leaders and disgruntled employees, not to mention the profits being at an all-time low, Microsoft was a sinking ship. However, with Satya Nadella on board, everything started changing from Day 1.

How Are Technology Leaders Using Data and Machine Learning to Help Identify New Business Opportunities?
Businesses need to be ultra- vigilant in the contemporary world embodied by cutthroat competition to stay ahead in the race. Adopting, employment and mindful dissemination of upcoming technologies like AI, big data, and machine learning can help companies stay afloat. Data science and machine learning have impeccable impacts on businesses all over the globe, and they are rapidly turning critical for the differentiation and survival of technology bigwigs. The big claims about big data and machine learning as transformative instruments in the hands of businesses have accuracy and honesty in them. So, let us analyze the role of big data and machine learning in helping technology leaders to help identify new business opportunities.
Information technology is breaking Most firm transformations involve down barriers between sectors and industries, allowing new technology- based businesses to rise, such as Airbnb in the rental sector and Amazon in the e-commerce sector. In addition to external disruptions, technology breakthroughs are causing internal disruptions by dismantling functional silos and forcing companies to operate end-to-end.
Leadership has been traditionally defined as having the ability to look differently at situations, seek out ways to make them better for everyone, and influence others to adapt to the change in a positive way. Leaders have an almost intuitive feel for innovation – whether it is thinking of new ways to do the same things or doing new things. From the stone age man who started creating tools from stones or the man who invented the wheel, every new idea has come from a deep wish to make a situation better or easier.
The future always beholds exciting aspects. Things become even more interesting when it concerns the future of the Internet. Web 3.0 is mainly concerned with the next level of the Internet and Internet protocol.
