The most disrupting/buzzing word/term/happening of the year 2017 & the list (by Prabeen)

The most disrupting/buzzing word/term/happening of the year 2017 & the list (listed by Prabeen)

  1. disrupt” – the “most buzzing word/term/prefix in the world of technology & everywhere” of the year 2017 & pre-: (my diagram incomplete).

2. BitCoin – the sensational rise & rise & the invitation to scrutiny thereby ->volatility. Most buzzing thing and controversial thing of late.

3. AIArtificial Intelligence:

The most common revolutionary disruptive word/phrase & happening / reality in the world throughout not just technology.

4. 4th (Fourth) Industrial Revolution.

Yes it’s happening already & AI is just a part of it.

5. VRVirtual Reality

6. ARAugmented Reality


Let’s bit go one level details in broader category wise:

  1. disrupt:

#disrupt / disrupts / disruption / disruptive

  • disrupting technology / idea…
  • disruptive innovation
  • disrupting policy
  • digital disruption

As stated, the most common revolutionary disruptive word/phrase & happening / reality in the world not just technology:

  1. (2) AI Artificial Intelligence

(& related pre- happening – underneath & along-with:

2.3 Big Data + 2.1 Machine Learning + 2.2 Analytics)

#AI, (apart from (4) mobile), my personal point of view, I was very sure & had visualized; & also responded to my uncle way back in the year 2008 when he asked what’s the next big thing or future of technology;

& future of IT / jobs: IT market far from being saturated. Gov-based lots of opportunities. There would be job losses but also new paradigm shift & opportunities from time to time.

4. Virtual Assistant (related to AI)

5. Mobile – Mobility. Mobile Platform (always buzzing and so common that buzzing is not even a word).

6. Touch (Touchable User Interface) . Self-explanatory.

7. Speech Recognition (again self-suficient)

8. Facial Recognition (LG used it, but Apple / iPhone hyped it and justified it)

9. Connected: connected network. connected world. connected things.

10. #IoT (under / related to 9) – Internet of Things (carries over from past year)

11. BlockChain (financial transactions / logs / institutions)

12. CryptoCurrency (under/related to 11) – Most / Top controversial technology thing.

13. (3) BitCoin (under/related to category 8! but actually at #2or 3.) (- the sensational rise & rise & the invitation to scrutiny thereby ->volatility. Most buzzing thing of late. It’s not just bit of a coin! Very complex and complicated and energy-sapping. Most / No.1 controversial technology thing + term especially of late.

Yes, all these years, even I’ve been a silent spectator as many. Never knew how to invest nor have the resources/money to invest.

Most underestimated or under-/not-hyped but used and really effective/relating word/term/thing: “unified“.

14. #unified: unified stack, unified architecture => unified connected world

Happening in the background not very hyped or vocal:

15. OpenBank project. (Financials+Credit/Loans. Transactions. Logs. History. Eligibility)

16. Trend in Collaboration (actually one top thing).

17. Architecture: Open.x Open Architecture

Obvious & common use:

18. Cloud

19. Machines / Robots

20. Automation

(1) human at the centre (center)/core of it all.

These will continue for the next year as well. More are there but let me stop here for the time-being.

If Success is like the Sky:
everybody wants to reach for it and touch it, but never is able to; because it’s all the feeling, one can only feel it, never touch it, because it is all here devoid of any form, shape; it is not materialistic!
If one thinks one is flying in it, one realizes where does it start and end then? If it’s like flying, one must remember one has to take off from one’s base (e.g., the earth) and must remember one has to return or land back on to the base/ground level to fly again; so one has to re-energize/refuel/refresh/restart!
Also, one can be then knocked down off the flying, aka ‘Success‘!
There is no ‘ever‘ concept in Success then!?
So now one comes to realize Success doesn’t have a perfect analogy! It is incomparable as it seems!

If Success is the key to Happiness:
what’s Happiness then? Is it a door/gate or room or house or the world or whatever?
If it’s a door/gate, then it can be breached, can be collapsed and can be broken down!
Then there would be privileged pass, time-bound pass, membership pass!
Then there must be at least a door-keeper/gate-keeper/watchman/security/guard. So one can’t just enter like that, one has to fight for it or cheat that to have that entry. But if that was possible, then everybody would do it some or the other way; but the truth is that it’s not.
Also, with this door/gate-key context, what’s the lock then?
Also, if there is the entry, there must be an exit (forced)!
So it’s not ‘ever‘! So Success is also not forever!
And if Success is an enclosed entity, would one want to live confined forever?

If Success is the state of Happiness:
what’s Happiness then? Isn’t it the state of feeling Happy ( which is again beyond any exact definition)? So what’s feeling or being Happy then? Isn’t it like feeling good, content, nothing to want, nothing to need, nothing to desire, nothing to search for, nothing to ask for, nothing to beg for, nothing to earn, nothing to yearn, nothing new! Then it’s just the way one feels! It’s just one’s state of mind. So it’s all fluctuating. And all this is self-realized, and also self-controllable!
So again, it’s not ‘ever‘! So Success is also not forever!

So Success is tentatively easy to visualize, but not so easy to realize!
Success can’t be exactly defined!
It exists but without any practical existence!
