ELK- The Passionate Pursuit of Log Analysis

ELK- The Passionate Pursuit of Log Analysis

As the number of distributed systems keeps on increasing, it is tough to understand where the errors are happening. But aggregating our logs together gives a unified understanding of the overall working of our system and helps us identify the error. The idea behind ELK is also to identify the root cause of errors and take corrective measures to prevent further damage.

Overview: During SDLC (System Development Life Cycle), we often face situations where we need to find frequently occurring errors in different pages, methods having exceptions/errors, the performance of the pages/methods, availability of application and server, and many more. Various applications are feed into each other. Debugging is an issue that requires logging into each box to look at the logs for errors. With a small number of apps/boxes, debugging is not an issue, but it quickly becomes tedious as the number of apps/boxes increase!

Idea: With ELK identifying such errors … Read More

BrainBeans has efficiently replaced ‘Just do it’ with ‘Just think it’! 

Based on brain waves technology, BrainBeans is one of the most innovative and appreciated ideas and the cynosure of Innovation Day. The idea harnesses brain waves that are produced from masses of neurons communicating with each other and are detected using an EEG headset.

Overview:

The brain is at the center of everything that we do; it controls and coordinates our actions and reactions and allows us to think and feel, enables us to have memories, feelings, dreams, and a million other things.  It gives us all the things that make us human.

RPA Benefits for Non-Profit Organizations

Doing more with less is the biggest benefit that RPA offers to a nonprofit organization and empowers them to transform the way they perform their duties. 

What role can RPA play?

The ultimate objective of implementing RPA in a nonprofit is to have a higher output with fewer resources.  However, the most immediate impact of RPA is on routine tasks that are performed in an error-free, consistent manner.

Comic Strip – An Intersection of Art and AI

Comic Strip Story Board

Communication with machines has always been effortless and limited to conscious and direct forms, whether it’s something as simple as turning on the lights or as complex as programming. We only had to give a command to a machine for it to do something for us. 

On the flip side, communication between people is far more complicated but a lot more interesting because we take into account much more than what is explicitly expressed. We observe facial expressions, body language, and understand feelings and emotions from our dialogue with one another. However, interpretation of facial expressions is not absolute, and each person interprets them by his or her experience and knowledge. But such interpretations are prone to misunderstandings and gaps!

To curb the gaps, our team’ Comic Strips’ offered an excellent solution that has the capability of understanding not only the dialogues but emotions too and presenting the entire conversation … Read More

Prototyping – A Crucial Stage in Design Thinking

Prototyping Stages

Have you ever used a pen and paper to describe an idea to your team? 

Almost each one of us, because it is the simplest way to explain your idea and is also comprehensible by your team. The pen and paper design has been practiced for ages and is probably a minuscule example of Design Thinking, without any use of technology.

In simple terms, Design Thinking is a methodical process that makes use of tools and technology often practiced before the launch of the final product. It is an iterative process and a crucial one for designing a product. Besides aiming at understanding user needs and redefining the problem statement, Design Thinking’s ultimate objective is to provide a new perception to Prototype and test the solution cases.

Every Design Thinking process goes through five stages: Empathize, Define, Ideate, Prototype, and Test. Though each stage is essential, let us look closely … Read More
