It’s the 5th of September. i.e. Teacher’s Day! Remember how back in days we would dress up as teachers & go to school. So many fun memories ?
Anyways, on that nostalgic note, here’s wishing you a Very Happy Teacher’s Day!
Speaking of teacher’s day, this pandemic too seems like a very annoyed teacher – you know that miss who would trash you for the smallest of mischief! Well, this one has us all grounded in our homes, rethinking our choices & lives as we know it. A huge lesson in adapting, evolving & learning!
As we are all wrapping our heads around the “new normal” one thing that stands out most is the increased use of tech in our day to day & work life. While concepts such as data science, AI, ML, etc. were not unheard of, their presence in our professional & personal life has grown many folds over.
And as we meet & chat with more & more entrepreneurs we are acutely aware of how tech startups are changing things around us… For example, we were talking to Meghna Saraogi of StyleDotMe and how she is revolutionizing jewelry shopping with AR-powered tech solution.
Or how Preksha Kaparwan of AlphaAI is making data analytics accessible through simple voice commands! Seriously this would be a blessing – no more boring excels, pivots, charts, and tables to ponder over.
All of this brought us to a realization that our world is moving to a more tech-dependent environment faster than we assumed & as individuals we can not get away not knowing the basics.
Hence the title – Don’t be a Dinosaur! ?
So for this week’s newsletter, we thought of bringing you a round-up of some great podcasts that’ll get you to update with 5 concepts of tech we come across often.
So here goes:
