The new face of Banking: Transformed by RPA


With a “can’t wait to automate strategy”, banks are the frontrunners riding the automation wave. They have successfully shifted the uninspiring and routine tasks to machines while engaging their human resources in more resourceful tasks. The results are phenomenal; there is a dramatic increase in the operational efficiency and improvement in customer experience, among a multitude of other benefits, making automation inevitable for banks.

What made banks the early adopters of the automation wave is the realization of the fact that it is an excellent way to enhance productivity, performance, and to bring round-the-clock efficiency in processes. Challenges such as strict regulations and controls posed by the Government, the rise of the fintechs, change in customer behavior, demand for faster and personalized services, and Mergers and Acquisitions have left banks with no other choice than to embrace automation. 

As it is, the banks spending on IT is twice as much … Read More

Smart Contract-Based CrowdFunding and Rewards Platform

Smart Contract-Based CrowdFunding and Rewards Platform - Blockchain

Blockchain is of paramount importance as it facilitates users to own digital goods, assets, and data. It is a global distributed digital ledger that ensures transparency for all stakeholders within the network besides being a trusted and reliable technology. Both the ideas, Smart Contract-Based Crowdfunding, and Rewards platform, have harnessed the power of Blockchain in addition to using smart contracts.

A Smart Contract is an option contract between two or more parties written as a code in Blockchain. The individuals involved are anonymous, but the ledger is the public ledger. The Contract executes itself according to the coded terms when there is a triggering event like an expiration date. Regulators can use the Blockchain to understand the activity in the market while maintaining the privacy of individual actors’ positions. It is entirely autonomous and increases transparency, security, accuracy, speed, efficiency while keeping the transaction cost low.

Parallel Test Automation – Test Thousands of Cases in One Go

Parallel Test Automation

It is challenging to manage too many UI tests at the same time and meet release deadlines. Does it take too long to execute your Regression tests too? The simplest and most powerful way to overcome the challenge is to test all the tests in parallel. Parallel Test Automation is an innovative approach to help you run the tests parallelly and save your time so that you can focus on your core business activities.

Overview: Testing was done manually during the early stages of software development. As the industry advanced, there came some early-stage automation tools like AutoTester, UFT, and PreVue, to name a few. But as the tools were complicated and expensive, people started looking for better solutions. The new automation tools such as “Selenium, Katalon, Testim” emerged to go hand in hand with the rapidly changing software technologies.

As the software industry grew further, people started realizing they needed … Read More

Gesture-Based Machine Learning

Gesture-Based Machine Learning

As per a survey by the World Health Organization (WHO), 466 million people across the world face difficulty while they hear, speak and convey their message, which is over 5% of the world’s population. They don’t use voice as a primary medium to send their message and instead explain it through gestures. With gbML, the same gestures get captured in a computer, which then translates them into text and speech for ordinary people to understand and make sense out of it.

(gbML is a term designed by our team for the innovative idea, do not search the name on the internet!)

Idea: Only a few people understand the sign language used by the partially or fully disabled, and it becomes difficult for them to convey their message to everyone. gbML efficiently reduces the gap between the two.

How it works: 

The differently-abled person performs gestures in front of the … Read More

Voice-Driven Web Forms: Speech to Text

Voice-Driven Web Forms

With technologies like JavaScript native speech recognition API and a JavaScript speech synthesizer, the possibility of your favorite voice assistant acting as your navigator while you interact on the web is not far-fetched. Both technologies have empowered multiple functions on the website and make it easy to interact with the web. 

Read more to know how?

Overview: Speech recognition technology has gained momentum in recent years. It provides advantages on both an individual as well as enterprise level. Amongst the various benefits, the most notable is its ability to dictate speech and convert it into texts. With its help, users can fill forms and perform multiple functions without any physical contact with the device.

Idea: A web application ‘Hello,’ which can accept the commands from users without any keyboard or physical activity(touch, etc.). It is a library which needs to be included in the code. A user can speak the highlighted … Read More

IDEM: Interactive Dual Eye Mechanism

Interact with Robot

Hologram Object Projection – Blend of AR and VR

Hologram Object Projection

As coronavirus cases have surged, so have the number of companies asking their employees to work from home, and technologies like Hologram Object Projection will prove as milestones in facilitating work from home by projecting users in a 3D space.

The Hologram is a Three Dimensional projection of an object that exists freely in space and is visible to everyone without the need for 3D glasses. Based on Mixed Reality, the concept is a combination of elements of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality.

Idea: Hologram Object Projection is a combination of AR and VR where AR creates the illusion that virtual objects are placed in the real world, and VR implies complete immersion experience in a virtual environment, i.e., creating a 3D simulated environment by shutting out the physical environment. It enables interaction of the real world with digital objects. It is based on realistic rendering, i.e., virtual objects are placed … Read More
