AI Fueled Web Accessibility Technology: The Next Frontier of Web Access

ai-fueled-web-accessibility-technology-the-next-frontier-of-web-access-1000x300-jpg

Introduction to Web Accessibility

Web accessibility refers to the inclusive fashion of making websites accessible for people with all abilities and disabilities. All users can have equal access to information and functionality when sites are properly designed, developed and edited.

Any website owner would like to attract as many visitors as possible. However, few take the necessary steps to ensure that everyone can use their website. There are around millions of users out there who rely on accessible sites and if you do not take the time to understand their needs, everyone is going to miss out.

In many aspects of life, the Web is an increasingly important resource: education, health care, employment, government, trade, recreation, and more. It is essential that the Web is accessible to ensure equal access and equal opportunities for people with diverse skills. In the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCRPD), access to information and digital technology, including the Internet, is defined as a fundamental human right.

The Internet web offers many people with disabilities the promise of unprecedented access to information and communication. That is, it is much easier to overcome the accessibility barriers to print, audio and visual media through web technologies.

Standards Used For Complete Web Accessibility and Its Benefits

Depending on your location, you may need to follow different sets of accessibility standards. Fortunately, a comprehensive list called the WCAG 2.0 has been widely adopted by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and is the foundation set of guidelines for most other standards.

Coding accessibility into your website has quite a few advantages that go beyond even compliance with the minimum accessibility rules:

  • Social Responsibility

On a daily basis, people with disabilities are facing many difficulties. If they are among your customers or users, it is plain human decency to allow them to interact with your web app. When our population evolves, to be mindful of ALL of our different users, we need to educate the people responsible for generating communication channels.

  • Engineering

Many of the good accessibility practices are general principles of good engineering and design. Often the poorly written code cannot be read. Accessibility is just a matter of doing a good job for those of us who aspire to learn our craft.

  • User Experience

Accessibility standards are designed to make it easier for people to access and use the website. Most of them improve accessibility as a side effect and directly benefit all users, including those without disabilities. For instance, Readable text helps not only poor-sighted people, but also all users.

  • A Larger Customer Base Market

With reports of one in five people in the US claiming some kind of disability, 20% of a group’s population is just too big to ignore. It is still a minority, but it includes a lot more people than most of us would think.

  • Efficient Code

You will be amazed at the benefits once you have developed a clean, accessible code base. Efficient code can contribute to improvement.

  • Website maintenance
  • Faster page loading
  • Search engine optimization (SEO)
  • Device compatibility

Why Making Your Website Accessible Should Be a Priority

Accessibility promotes social equality for disabled people and others like such as:

There are four major types of disability-hearing, sight, motor and cognitive impairment. There are a multitude of conditions in each type. While communicating with the internet, they create different challenges, which require different strategies to overcome these challenges. Let us discuss some of the best practices that tackle every particular type of disability. You will notice that most of these practices are not about the technology we are using, but about how we are designing our software. This means that everyone involved in the process of development can contribute to improved accessibility.

  • Hearing (Auditory) Disabilities

Hearing impairments range from mild hearing impairment to deafness. The best way to assist these users is to avoid relying sound only for the transmission of critical information. Alternatively, add additional press for assistance in tandem. If you are using audio, for example, make sure that it supports full captioned subtitles. Provide a transcript if you are using audio. Subtitles and transcripts should be complete and critical lines should not be missed.

Subtitles and transcripts are strongly applied. In addition, ensure that background noise is minimized for both video and audio, so that the information conveyed is as audible as possible.

  • Visual Disabilities – Blindness

Blind people always choose screen readers as a solution. Such apps use natural language to parse the HTML and explain it to the user. It has its specifics to develop for screen readers, so a later section of the article will focus exclusively on them. In addition, a user with blindness will be working with the input device will be different. It needs vision to use a mouse. Instead, a blind person will need full support for the keyboard.

  • Cognitive Disabilities – Dyslexia

Dyslexia is a type of disability that some people find it difficult to read: dyslexic people can confuse letters or see them rotating or crowded together. We will list readability guidelines in the following paragraphs. One should strongly commit to overcoming dyslexia’s problems.

  • Visual Disabilities – Low Vision

Using a readable interface is the main way to accommodate low vision. The elements of the UI must be large and clear. Nonetheless, text is more complicated, and we will mention readability guidelines in a later section. These are designed to help low-vision individuals.

Another important aspect is contrast. High contrast in the UI between elements and colors will help low vision people. There are tools available to examine whether contrast with this condition is sufficient for people. Here you can find the tools recommended by Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI). Contrast is indeed troublesome in most page layouts used today. High-contrast themes often do not work well with regular themes, and if you want to achieve good contrast, you would probably prefer not to sacrifice your website’s visual appeal. Including a high-contrast theme as an option on your website is a good compromise, much like the language change option.

  • Visual Disabilities – Colorblindness

Colorblindness, too, is not a common disorder-colorblindness is special. Keep in mind that the explanations below are very simplified. Deuteranomaly is the most common difficulty in perceiving green light. It is called protanomaly and is a little less common to have difficulty perceiving red light. The visible spectra of these two disorders are somewhat similar and they are more commonly referred to as red-green colorblindness. Tritanomaly is a blue color perception problem and very rare.

  • Motor Disabilities

Quick and/or repeated acts, actions involving pressing a button, activities with time limits-all of these are challenging for motor handicapped people and can cause physical pain. They have to be avoided, but it is not that simple. The following example shows why: imagine you have a slider that requires you to hold a moving button. Your solution may be to allow the slider to shift by tapping a button, but if the step is too small, a repetitive movement that is not much of a change will result. The general rule is that a website needs to be designed so that a user can use it conveniently with only one keyboard and only one mouse.

  • Cognitive Disabilities Related to Sensory Overload & Motion Sickness

Many patterns can cause sickness of motion or sensory overload (e.g. epilepsy). These are usually quick effects such as shaking, bright lights, flashing rapidly (three times / second or faster). Repeating patterns of movement, fast or not, may cause the same problems. A good example of a repeated yet sluggish page motion is a falling snowflakes animation that we often see around the winter holidays. Sharp changes in the content of a page using dramatic transitions are also problematic; instead, we need to use smooth transitions. A good practice is to avoid troublesome effects, but allow users to disable them as a compromise if you want to use them.

  • Web Accessibility for People with Epilepsy

Stop all sorts of blinks and animations automatically and quickly with the click of a button.  People suffering from epilepsy cannot be exposed to flashing or flickering lights and animations. They are therefore constantly afraid to use the internet, as almost every website today has a flashing banner that is meant to capture attention. While these banners are useful to achieve their goal, they are dangerous and likely to cause seizure for people with epilepsy.

This enables people with epilepsy to immediately stop all animation styles (including, but not limited to, images, GIFs, CSS or JS) with a single click, enabling them to browse the web quickly, without any apprehension.

  • Cognitive Disabilities – Learning Difficulties

Simplicity is essential. Simplify your scenarios, make your interface simple and clutter free. Use simple language; avoid words, which look fancy. Always provide precise information and clear instructions.

Conclusion

Effective readability means that your website is open to a number of people with disabilities: readable subtitles and translations will help people with hearing problems and understandable text will help people with low vision or dyslexia in general. In a large font size, a thumb rule is to use simple and clean sans-serif font.

Many people are using assistive technologies to browse the internet to work around these issues. As such, nearly anyone can browse the web. What’s more, by building the page with usability in mind, you can significantly improve their experiences. Websites undergoing a project of web accessibility lose compliance as soon as the first update is deployed. Complete sections of the site become inaccessible after only one year.

Such technology does not need a human to go through and analyze the site; to do exactly that, it uses artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies. These technologies scan, analyze, and decipher your website worldwide, first and only of their kind, thus ensuring that your website is compliant and accessible at all times, regardless of any updates you may post.

We believe that we have managed to convey on how important accessibility is and have given you useful and practical ideas to overcome some of the challenges of creating an open website efficiently.

Revolutionizing Agriculture Farming with the Integration of IoT

Revolutionizing-Agriculture-Farming-with-the-Integration-of-IoT-1000x300-jpg

Farming is the oldest profession known to humankind. This very essential trade is the basis of human evolution. It is only natural that as humans have advanced they have brought their knowledge into farming in an attempt to make it more efficient and gainful. In the 21st century there are hardly any aspect of our existence that is not affected by technology — and agriculture is not an exception. With the world population exploding it is only fitting that smart agriculture is the way forward. The implementation of IoT (Internet of Things) in agriculture can help the modern world find ways that can effectively ease the burden on farming. The integration of IoT in agriculture will bring in the next most needed technological revolution in this sector.

IoT in Agriculture

The implementation of IoT in agriculture will depend on the use of sensors and cameras along with other connected devices that would be able to turn every element and action involved in farming into data that can provide insights and help in building software algorithms that are customised to the requirements of that specific farm. The data these sensors record will include information on weather, plant health, crop health, moisture measurements, mineral level, chemical applications, and pest presence among multiple other things.

Smart agriculture that employs IoT tools can collect crucial data such as quality and fertility of soil along with weather conditions to help farmers to forecast crop yield and resultant business status. This would lend itself to a better control over agricultural processes, thus reducing production risks, and improving the plans related to distribution and sale. The increased control over farm processes and product distribution will allow farmers to manage their cost better and reduce the waste production. The ability to track every aspect of the crop growth and any possible anomalies will allow them to mitigate risks related to losing yields.

IoT implementation in farms will also lead to the incorporation of smart devices. The smart devices will enable the activation of multiple processes simultaneously. Across a production cycle, the farm would have to undertake processes such as fertilisation, irrigation, and pest control among other things. Using smart devices that allow automation and accomplishment of multiple tasks at the same time will improve business efficiency of farms.

Smart Devices in Agriculture

Sensors in agriculture can be used for a varied range of functions. Smart agriculture will expectedly have a great range of applications to provide an all-round flow of data that can be used to ease farming processes. Sensors can be used to monitor soil, humidity, moisture, light, air temperature, levels of carbon dioxide, and solar energy among other things. Installed throughout the farm, these devices will allow the recording of a continuous stream of data — combining which allows to build crop models predicting of how the crop will grow in the given conditions, practice precision farming relying on sensor and satellite data, and build harvesting strategy.

The application of IoT in agriculture is crucial in reference to actuators. Smart sprinklers can be essential in ensuring that irrigation when automatically activated depending on the predetermined requirements. This could also be extended to actuators being connected to coolers and heater in the storage facilities, which could lead to reduced waste of agriculture produce. Farms could also bring in smart LED lights that could adjust to changing external factors to ensure that the greenhouse storage spaces are illuminated to the exact right amount to ensure that farms can produce at optimum levels. Smart technology would considerably help in reducing water consumptions and make agriculture more environmentally conscious.

Agriculture vehicles are a world onto themselves and often require the operator to have a specific level of competency to handle them effectively. With smart vehicles, this could change. Using artificial intelligence and data collected from the multitude of sensors in the farm, these vehicles will be equipped with computer vision, extreme precision GPS, and machine learning capabilities. Using these tools the vehicles will be capable of identifying the need of irrigation and pesticide treatment on the field, thus, reducing the chances of over-irrigation or excess use of pesticides.

Farm drones are another fleet of devices that are set to revolutionise farming. Drones in agriculture are increasingly designed to help farmers in multiple ways. Most of these drones are designed to have high capacity cameras that can help them to act as safety guards against rodents and pest attacks. The drones are also designed to take commands spray chemicals or water as and when needed following detection based on the data provided by other sensors. Companies have also developed smaller drones that would help in pollination. The falling population of bees and mass beehive collapses have forced agricultural engineers to find ways that can allow desired levels of pollination even with reducing number of bees. The evolving technology is now paving the way for robo-bees or miniature drones that will be able to assist in pollination.

Potential Limitations

There are few limitations that still hinder the complete implementation of IoT in agriculture. IoT at its core is diverse and employs a wide range of protocols and transmission methods. In addition a successful implementation of IoT would require connectivity across agricultural farms — that would include fields, storehouses, barns, greenhouses. The challenges increase because the space makes it extremely difficult to have an uninterrupted reliable connection. These connections will also have to be conditioned to ensure that they work in severe weather and open space.

Technologies such as drones, portable sensors, connected tracking grids, weather monitoring sensors would have to developed in a manner that can be of function while exhibiting the sense of sturdiness that is required to “work in the farm”.

Conclusion

The role of IoT in agriculture is very important, though the integration of smart technology in this area takes place in the context of a constantly changing environment and lack of time. Innovators designing and developing IoT for agriculture have to take into consideration rapid climate change and emerging weather extremes, work with limited land availability and unfavourable factors like dying pollinators. The technology that can change agriculture forever is already being discussed on drawing boards, bringing them into the real world as tangible products is what remains the challenge. Smart technologies and IoT can strengthen competitiveness and sustainability in production. With the ever-increasing global population, the demand for more food and nutrition is growing. Meeting those demands with the utmost efficiency is critical — thus, investing in agricultural IoT is a smart move.

The Role of Blockchain and its Influence on Insurance Sector

The-Role-of-Blockchain-and-its-Influence-on-Insurance-Sector-1000x300-jpg

Since its introduction, blockchain has been able to capture the imagination of every possible industry. The initial boost was a factor of the success of various crypto-currencies — but mainly Bitcoin. However, blockchain is no more constricted to the use of cryptocurrencies. Blockchain has developed beyond its initial applications, and a number of industries are now working hard to commercialize the technology to their benefit.

Experts have been definitive about the advantages that blockchain offers to any industry. Blockchain is capable of resolving issues of finances and logistics for a number of industries. The importance of blockchain rises manifold when a number of different stakeholders are involved in a single transaction. Above anything else, blockchain offers an unprecedented level of confidentiality, security, and transparency — characteristics that would be elemental in the insurance industry.

Blockchain in Insurance

At the very core of the blockchain technology is a distributed ledger. This ledger is where all the transactions are recorded and validated with the help of a series of encryptions. All transactions in the blockchain ledger are designed to toe the line of a fixed modus operandi. Every transaction in the blockchain ledger maintains a central data repository and is updated by few authorised personnel in the chain with each transaction.

Insurance can be defined as a contract — that is represented by a ‘policy’ — in which an individual or entity is given financial protection or reimbursement against a defined set of losses that the individual or entity might potentially face. It is a form of risk management and allows the company to prepare against unexpected losses.

One of the major issues that the insurance industry faces is that of transparency. The lack of transparency in the insurance industry has led to many disputes between insurers and customers. Therefore, it can be definitively stated that the potential of blockchain in the insurance industry is immense.

Usually, in a standard insurance contract, there are three parties involved — the insurer, the third-intermediary, and the customer. It often happens that the databases of these various parties may or may not be updated to the same point. But, blockchain can be an opposite answer to the issue. Furthermore, all the data and transaction entries can be designed to be validated by the representative of all parties involved. Therefore, blockchain has a strong future in the insurance industry.

Impact of Blockchain on Insurance Industry

Implementing blockchain in the insurance industry can solve a number of issues for insurers and customers. The most crucial of these influences can be discussed as below.

Enhance Efficiency: The entire process that an individual has to go through if they wish to change their insurance is a rigmarole that many actively work towards avoiding. A major reason for this is the lack of control that individuals have over the information that insurance companies hold. Blockchain is a fitting solution to this concern. While offering unmatched efficiency of operations, blockchain creates an incomparable wall of security that gives full access to the information while ensuring the information is secure when being transferred from one insurance company to another.

Increases Trust: Financial services across the world has been suffering a faltering level of trust among the common populace. Despite efforts from multiple fronts, the lack of trust is entirely palpable. Blockchain will bring in a factor of transparency and straightforwardness that could encourage a level trust among all parties involved.

Claims Processing: Blockchain and smart contracts can effectively resolve issues that has been plaguing the insurance sector since long. Most customers find that insurance contracts, forms, and other documents are long, confusing, and often unclear. Blockchain and smart contracts will help in creating an ecosystem that is transparent. This would ease the process of overseeing claims responsively and transparently combing out the possibilities of frauds. The entire process is triggered with the procedure that records and confirms contracts on the blockchain. The blockchain will ensure that only valid claims are brought through. In a situation where claims are repeated from the same incident, the application of blockchain would allow eliminating the repetitions to ensure that only legitimate claims are processed. The fact that only limited humans will have complete access to the data on blockchain ensures that claims are processed with much more speed and ease then otherwise possible.

Prevention of Frauds: One of the major reasons that blockchain is being rapidly integrated in the insurance sector is its ability to detect and prevent any form of fraudulent activity. Blockchain allows the storage of all transaction-related information in a decentralised set-up allowing a thorough check of authenticity for each policy transaction and claim.

Cost Saving: It is also important to note that the integration of blockchain will allow insurance companies reduce their operation costs significantly. The automation of processes such as verification of claims, the identity of policyholders, and the validity of the contract will help the insurance companies to reduce administrative costs significantly.

Conclusion

The blockchain technology has tremendous potential in the future and its implications are only growing exponentially. However, with increased integration of blockchain in more and more sectors there are bound to develop a few limitations. The insurance companies will have to ensure that they identify significant challenges as they emerge and apportion proper management.

Overcome Security Threats Affecting Mobile Financial Solutions 2020

Overcome-security-threats-affecting-mobile-financial-solutions-2020-1000x300-jpg

The financial services industry, like most businesses and consumers, has become dependent on mobile communications as a way to conduct business, manage customer information, exchange data, and work with customers. Due to its convenience, speed and ease, the electronic form of money has gained tremendous popularity among ordinary people and businesses.

We have also witnessed that Mobile Payment is the Future of Money Transaction and the emergence of mobile financial solution such as mobile payment system and digital wallet solution with the growing proliferation of smartphones around the world. People are moving rapidly from using cards to digital wallets to make payments at different locations.

There are few critics, however, who think that digital wallet is not a secure payment system for both consumers and service providers. Wallets such as Google Pay, Venmo, and Samsung Pay, however, serve as the best examples of a secure digital wallet that used around the world. However, we cannot completely ignore the risks to security that it may pose. In addition, if you are looking for a Best Digital Wallet App Development Company to hire and its solution, this blog is best for you.

In this blog, we are going to discuss the various security threats that digital wallet may face and what the solution might be.

Mobile Security Threats Explained

People tend to see mobile security threats as a threat that includes everything. But the fact is, you need to be mindful of various types of mobile security risks. These include physical threats based on software, web-based, network-based threats.

Here is How They Work:

  • Application-Based Threats

Application-based threats occur when people download apps from their phone that look legit but simply skim information. Types include spyware and malware that exploits personal and business data without people realizing what is happening.

  • Web-based threat

There are subtle web-based risks that appear to go unnoticed. They occur when people visit affected sites that appear to be fine on the front end but actually download malicious content to devices automatically.

  • Network-based threats

Network-based threats are particularly bad because cyber criminals are able to steal unencrypted data while using public WiFi networks.

  • Physical threats

Physical threats happen when somebody loses or has stolen their mobile device. Since hackers have direct access to the equipment, where private data is stored and access to data, this vulnerability poses a particular threat to companies.

Mobile Wallet Application under Major Potential Threat

  • Phishing Attacks

Phishing attacks are probably the most common type of attack. The phishing emails perform these. Such attacks have primarily aimed at forcing the client to disclose information.

  • Social Engineering

The attackers steal data from the client in social engineering that is available in the public domain. They either use it for illegal transactions or sell it to trade websites in the underground. The attackers sometimes use the stolen information as their identity as well.

That is how they get access to user’s info for Mobile Wallet Payment.

  • Installing Malware Applications By Mistake

Attackers make the user download malware using malicious attachments to redirect it to the mischievous URL, fake access point, insecure Wi-Fi hotspots, and a spoofing attack network.

  • Some of The Possible Security Measures
  • For digital wallet transactions, refrain from using public Wi-Fi hotspots.
  • Educate and sensitize people about risks to safety.
  • Distinguish between fake websites and actual access points.

Taking Care of Mobile Device Issues

  • Mobile Device as a Target

Mobile devices are more vulnerable to malware attacks because they are an easier target than the mobile app. Once the system is in their hands, they can use it for illegal activities such as spyware deployment, use of sensitive data, fraud transaction, and much more.

  • Implementation Issue

IT is a competitive field where you will see the constant release of new functionalities. Consequently, there is a possibility of running potentially unstable codes that are highly susceptible to security threats when mobile payment solution is being introduced.

  • Illegal Access to Lost Or Stolen Device

If your cell phone is lost or stolen then it is easy for the hackers to have unauthorized access to all the data contained in the system. They can also steal the information on fingerprints that can be used in a fraudulent transaction’s authentication process.

  • Possible Security Measures
  • Keep up to date the operating system.
  • Ensure the security checks on your computer done by default.
  • Keep the PINs and the PIN lock tight.
  • Keep biometric data tight.

Some of the Mobile Wallet Application Concerns

  • Reverse Engineering

Reverse engineering lets hackers target data such as encryption keys and passwords that are hardcoded. Hackers who have a high level of understanding of the digital wallet solution can only do that.

  • Tampering With The App And Using The Rootkits

The intruder could pick a loophole for login details to be accessed. They can send it to the server managed by the attackers after the details have been collected. This helps attackers to upload or access any kind of information from the request for mobile payment.

  • Possible Security Measures
  • Use the tools to adopt secure coding practices together with automated and secure review manual.
  • Adopt protection for source code integrity and anti-debug security.
  • Cryptography of the White Box
  • Safe software distribution through trusted application stores
  • Use all unauthorized software stores to detect and remove rogue applications.

Merchants’ Threats

  • Uploading malware on POS

Once the malware downloaded and mounted on the contactless terminal point of sale (POS), the attacker can use the card readers to customize and steal transaction and payment information. The attackers can gain insecure remote desktop access to the POS servers through POS malware. In addition, the malware also affects the encryption, thus increasing the probability of paying for fraud.

  • Man-in-the-middle attacks against POS and POS servers

Attackers may also benefit from vulnerabilities like the absence of firewalls. It helps hackers to make full use of the protection of the network.

  • Relay attacks on NFC enabled POS

Any known attack on the interface of the NFC POS is called the relay attack. The relay software installed on the mobile is capable of relaying responses and commands between the mobile POS card emulator installed as a proxy and a secure element.

  • Possible Security Measures
  • POS software should be up to date
  • Limit POS and POI access only to licensed users
  • Configure firewalls and install firewalls properly
  • Make use of SSL to the point of contact between POI and POS
  • Modify the POS system’s default password

What is Monolithic Architecture?

Monolithic App Development has a single codebase having multiple modules. The modules, in turn, are divided into either technical functions or business functions. The monolithic architecture is considered to be a conventional manner of building applications. A monolithic utility is constructed as a single and indivisible unit. Typically, this type of answer incorporates a client-side user interface, a server sided application, and a database. Its miles unified and all of the capabilities are controlled and served in one location.

Now that we have been looked into what is monolithic architecture and microservices architecture, let us investigate the risks and advantages that each the backend system gives to get a knowledge of what separates them from each other.

What Microservices Architecture is all about?

Microservices architecture includes a combination of small and autonomous services wherein each service is self-contained and should be applied as a single commercial enterprise potential. It is far a distinct approach used for improvement of software systems which consciousness on growing several single-feature modules with defined operations and interfaces. The technique has come to be a popular trend in the beyond numerous years as an increasing number of businesses are trying to become Agile and make a shift toward DevOps.

Components of Microservices architecture:

  • The offerings are independent, small, and loosely coupled
  • Encapsulates an enterprise or customer scenario
  • Every provider is distinctive codebase
  • Offerings can be independently deployed
  • Services engage with every different using APIs

While a monolithic application is a single unified unit, a microservices architecture breaks it down into a set of smaller unbiased devices. These units perform each application method as a separate service. So all the services have their own logic and the database in addition to perform the precise functions.

Explore the Advantages of Monolithic Architecture

An prepared and nicely-documented Monolith structure makes it viable for Backend developers to now not fear approximately which version might be well suited with which provider, how to locate which offerings are gift and what they do, etc. One in all the most important blessings of monolithic is that each one the transactions are logged into one vicinity, making error tracing undertaking a breeze.

The only factor that works within the favor of monolithic in the microservices vs. monolithic architecture debate is absence of silos. It turns into very easy for the builders to work on multiple elements of the app for they may be all dependent similarly, using the identical tools, which makes it ok to have not any earlier disbursed computing understanding.

Spending time in defining the services, which do no longer bleed in every differing time, is the time that you can surely spend in growing matters that assist the clients. No shared libraries in which the complete scope wanted for offerings to operate is dispatched along every request.

Explore the Advantages of Microservices Architecture

  • The largest issue in favor of microservices in the distinction among microservices and monolithic architecture is that it handles complexity problems via decomposing the app into potential provider set that are faster to increase and less difficult to hold and understand.

Introduction

The changes that technology has brought in the society has led to a paradigm shift in the manner that we manage our resources and conduct our daily functions. While human experience dictates the course that technology would take, it is hard to assume that our surroundings remain unaffected by these experiences. The manifestation of technological changes are palpable in the way modern homes and cities are being designed. Hence, the wide-ranging use of the term ‘smart homes’ and ‘smart cities’ is now commonplace. The most prominent way of building smart homes and smart cities is the implementation of Internet of Things, or IoT.

Smart Homes

The larger concept of designing smart homes is not entirely novel. A famous cartoon series from the 1990s — The Jetsons — had the imagination of many conjuring up what were then just fantasies. However, those are now as good as real in numerous ways. Smart home technology — also called home automation or domotics (domestic robotics) — is the 21st century way of ensuring that homeowners have guaranteed security, comfort, convenience, and energy efficiency. IoT allows the modern homeowners to manage and control the complete array of smart devices in their homes through a centralised system in the form of an app on their smartphone or other networked devices. Nearly every aspect of domestic living have now developed a smart alternative.

Smart TVs are now capable of connecting to the internet in order to give the viewer access to various online streaming services and access content through various online platforms. Some newer smart TVs are also equipped to respond to voice and gesture commands.

The market is also replete with options of smart lighting. These include light bulbs that are capable of being controlled remotely, and even change the hue of the light depending on the users’ command. A number of these smart lights are also designed to detect the daylight availability and regulate their brightness accordingly, this in addition to their ability to detect the presence of humans in a room and switching off automatically if the room is vacant.

Another common smart home staple is the presence of smart thermostats and air-conditioners. 21st century models of these appliances come equipped with Wi-Fi that allow users to schedule, monitor, and control home temperatures from any remote location. These appliances can also be taught human behaviours; and conditioned to function accordingly to ensure efficient energy use. Such smart appliances would also be able to intimidate users about impending scheduled maintenance like changing filters and so forth.

A number of homeowners are also opting for smart locks and security systems. These systems allow or deny access to visitors without having to walk to the door. Smart locks and security systems can also be designed to identify a secure set of people based on facial recognition and open the door automatically when they approach the door. Furthermore, these systems allow homeowners to monitor their homes from remote locations. Smart sensors would allow the device to identify the presence of any unfamiliar presence and send alerts to the homeowner immediately.

A standard smart home set up would also include gadgets such as pet monitors and irrigation systems for the houseplants and gardens. The smart pet monitors generally include a video calling feature through which pet owners can talk to their pets when they are away. The monitor would also include automatic feeders that would release a pre-determined amount of food for the pets. Similarly, smart gardening equipment would include water pipes that would contain nozzles that would release small amounts of water at regulated intervals to ensure that houseplants and gardens stay watered.

Additionally, smart homes would include smart coffee-makers that are connected to the alarm clock and can brew a fresh cup as soon as the alarm is switched off. Smart refrigerators can be designed to keep track of expirations dates and prepare a grocery list accordingly. The possibilities in the kitchen remain infinite.

Smart Cities

For smart homes to function to the best of their abilities, it is essential that they be based in the wider infrastructure of a smart city. The smart city can be seen as the evolution of the smart homes. When talking about smart cities, we zoom out of the IoT that connects all smart devices of a smart home to a community where different organisations, various domains, and various sections of the society in connected on the internet as a whole seamless unit.

Apart from building a truly unrestricted channel of information sharing within a community, smart cities will also allow the government to improve their governance procedures and provide better living conditions to the citizens.

Smart cities can have sensors that regularly check the level of pollutants in the air, water, and land of the city. Through this, concerned authorities can be alerted in case any form a spike is registered — allowing them to take instant actions to either control the source pollution or reverse the damage done by a scientific process.

Similarly, in terms of traffic management smart public devices can prove to be extremely helpful. Apart from working to eliminate the regular traffic law-breakers, the devices can provide real-time data about traffic jams on congested roads allowing citizens to divert their routes as necessary. Smart traffic controls can also help in saving time for emergency services, by sending alerts to citizens driving to keep a lane empty on a road that falls in the route of a rushing ambulance or fire-truck.

On the humanitarian front, smart cities can have technology that allows citizens to reach out to struggling fellow citizens through a more efficient channel. The city would be able to keep track of the homeless populace in the city in a more comprehensive manner and help them in ways that are more profound than irregular supplies of food and clothes.

Tourism will also benefit in a smart city. Smart cities can help tourists in many ways, eliminating the guides and other agents — thus bringing down the cost for tourists. Tourists would be able to access the city network through temporary authorisations, and plan a tour for themselves without relying on travel agents. The network can also help them find local attractions that are not a part of guide books, or even help them get in contact with locals who can volunteer to show them around.

Conclusion

The path towards being ‘smart’ is being paved in exponential speed. IoT is a truth of the 21st century that would eventually take in every possible aspect of human existence. The following generations will be closer to the dream that was shown through The Jetsons in early 1990s.

Why and How AI Is Transforming the Oil and Gas Industry

Why and How AI Is Transforming the Oil and Gas Industry

Using artificial intelligence (AI) technology proves not only useful but also transforms those who work in a variety of industries. Executives of oil and gas are no exception: The use of technological applications such disruptive machine learning (ML) and predictive analytics can help industry insiders to improve their operations and could reduce costs $ 55 billion in oil and gas upstream activities only. However, the impact of AI on the oil and gas industry goes beyond cost savings, offering several potential advantages. It is oil executives and vital gas understands what is at stake – and what they have to gain.

Since its creation, technology led the development and transformation of the oil and gas industry and because of this, AI Development Companies in Dubai, UAE, Riyadh, Kuwait, Doha, Muscat, and Manama has increased around. Technologies to locate and extract oil and gas reserves has allowed the shale revolution, a new revolution is on the corner of oil and gas exploration and production. Although it may seem like something from science fiction, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning has the potential to reshape the oil and gas exploration and production landscape. Once considered a novelty, AI and machine learning are not far from becoming mainstream for each and every production companies.

The promising potential of artificial intelligence has already done in many businesses and industries. Now may the introduction of AI in using oil and gas can overcome its limitations and maximize profits?

How AI and ML Empowered OIL & GAS Industry?

Oil is one of the most valuable products in the energy sector. Several companies established in the oil and gas sector were earning huge profits by producing fuel and other crude oil products such as lubricants, paraffin wax and petroleum. However, crude oil world reserves are depleted to a record low according to reports.

The potential impact of Artificial Intelligence in Transport and Logistics industries, healthcare, manufacturing, retail and agriculture has provided beneficial. Similarly, the introduction of AI in oil and gas companies can upgrade the industrial sector. Several industry giants are already deploying AI in commercial operations of oil and gas. The development of Artificial Intelligence has led to the rise of various apps like precision drilling and automatic inspections to benefit producers of oil and gas.

Not all problems are created equally, which provides a unique opportunity for the oil and gas industry. Some business models are dependent on human emotion, which means that problem solving must take into account the potential paths of emotional reactions. Human emotion remains a variable in the model that is very difficult or impossible to predict accurately. However, apart from some aspects of business, oil and gas companies have many other challenges and problems to solve that are not as dependent on human emotion.

The International Energy Agency widespread use of digital technologies could increase the reserves of oil and gas of about 6% and reduce production costs by 15% to 20%. AI and machine learning can help companies to optimize well design, drilling and completion, and even use machines to perform hazardous tasks on an unmanned basis. It can advance the oil and gas production rates and lower costs.

The Future of Artificial Intelligence in Oil and Gas

Despite a slow start, the oil and gas companies now seem willing to adopt all kinds of digital technology to hinder costs and increase performance. The power of the oil boom and Permian gas stream is the perfect example of how the adoption of new technologies such as directional drilling and hydraulic fracturing has increased yields. The application of AI technology seems to be the next step for the industry, as it continues to seek solutions to stimulate growth.

Artificial intelligence (AI) for oil and gas sector has a huge potential market. A report from Markets and the market believes that the value of AI in the oil and gas industry will increase from $ 1.60 billion in 2017 to 2,800,000,000 $ in 2022. The digitization of the oil and gas industry the increasing pressure to reduce production costs and investments in AI-related start-ups are the factors behind this growth. From now on, North America is the largest market utilizing AI in oil gas, closely followed by Europe and Asia Pacific.

Why AI is Important to the Oil and Gas Industry

Oil and gas is a huge industry with three main operating segments: upstream, along the way (transport and storage) and downstream. There are several ways to apply AI technologies to each of these sectors. Here are some of the ways the AI ​​can help oil and gas companies:

  • Data Analysis

Just ten years ago few, even the most advanced AI could advise companies retrospectively. For example, the AI ​​can pinpoint where a specific preventive action could have been taken to avoid failure. While technology has helped companies to make accurate decisions in the future, it has done little in real time.

Today, with the help of sensors and advanced software powered by AI, companies are able to handle not only a large amount of data, but also the production of real-time answers about the best plan action. AI tools can help oil and gas companies to digitize their records and automate the analysis of geological data tables. Over time, these files can then help companies identify problems such as corrosion of the pipelines or the increased use of the equipment.

  • Chatbots

Potential customers can visit the website of an oil company to buy their products, such as lubricants, grease, paraffin wax, oil, microcrystalline wax, refined asphalt, bitumen and refined. Usually, customers must search through an extensive database to find their required product. These clients need help and advice with various products. In addition, oil and gas companies can have discounts on certain products that their customers do not know.

Oil and gas companies can deploy AI chatbot powered with Natural Language Processing capacity. The chatbot can interact with customers and help them find their necessary product providing information critical product and offer similar products. Customers can also address their questions about products and deliveries with the help of chatbot. Furthermore, websites can investigate the chatbot using to collect customer feedback. Therefore, by implementing AI in the websites of the oil and gas company, companies can improve their customer experience.

  • Exploration and Production

Most of the drilling and production wells are located in remote areas, which mean sending workers there greatly increases costs. Oil well operators typically generate daily reports on inspection and maintenance on site; these reports are usually not structured or semi-structured documents in paper or PDF. Oil and gas companies can now use AI technologies to extract data from these documents automatically.

Further analysis based on AI can help company’s better use of large amounts of data – ultrasound data, production process data, drilling data, inspection data pipelines and data seismic collected – their plants daily. These analyzes, ultimately, reduce the cost of exploration, extraction, processing and supply of oil. The development of exploration robots could also help oil and gas companies to reduce the time and costs of exploration and allow human employees to stay out of danger.

  • Production optimization

Oil and gas companies are always seeking for innovative and unique techniques to optimize their production. With the help of optimizing production, oil and gas companies aim to improve efficiency and maximize profits. However, traditional techniques are ineffective in improving revenue.

Oil and gas companies can form AI systems using large volumes of raw production data. Leveraging AI in the oil and gas companies will allow recognition and classification of automatic refining production data patterns to generate analyzes. With the help of the analysis, AI systems can develop estimation and forecasting models. Using this approach, the oil and gas companies can capture and analyze the dynamics of the production process. Furthermore, Al can contribute to separate reservoir effects from the production control responses such as gas recovery rate, choke positions, the network routing

  • Mapping and Analyzing

AI also has the capabilities to help oil and gas companies map and analyze seismic activity in a potential oil field. So far, this task involves geologists analyzing the image files manually. AI systems are being developed that will help geologists to interpret subsurface images from seismic studies more quickly, thanks to computer vision.

Currently, new projects are underway to develop software that can go further: the software that can analyze the image files and correlate these results with information from technical documents. The results could then be fed into an AI assistant that can answer questions about the basement of data. If successful, this software simplifies the model identification process indicates the economic liability company may experience in a new field.

  • Security and Planning

AI assistants are also used to transform security meetings. AI technologies can identify key details, provide summaries to action and eliminate the need for large multi-tasking during discussions. Using an AI assistant can also help workers of oil and gas to make critical decisions for real-time security and manage the ever-increasing complexity of engineering systems.

Automating manual routine activities not only improves productivity, but also reduces the risk for human workers. Some companies are already using software that analyzes production data and sensors (including pump pressures, flows and temperatures) to provide equipment and parts are at high risk of failure. AI can also help oil and gas companies make better, faster drilling and blasting decisions, improved productivity and security.

CONCUSLION

The leaders of the oil and gas industry include the AI ​​in multiple areas. Reducing the carbon footprint, exploring deep-sea oil and the implementation of innovative and sustainable energy strategies are driving the pace of change in the field. No industry, including the oil and gas industry, has fully used the potential of artificial intelligence.
