Celebrating Telugu Language Day 2018

India is a diverse country with each region or state having its own distinct language. Add to that, each language has a variety of dialects used by people across the region or state. Telugu speakers at 71 million are the biggest group among south Indian language speakers residing in the south of India. They are principle residents of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, having a sizeable presence in the neighboring states of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu at 3.7 and 3.5 million respectively. Telugu is treated as a classical language, among the six classical languages identified by the Indian state. It was conferred the distinction in 2008.

 

Erstwhile Andhra Pradesh is considered by many as the fiefdom of IT professionals. Andhra Pradesh is also considered as the first few states that drove the IT revolution in India, benefitting both the state and the country. Another distinction that the Telugu diaspora is recognized with is the number of students going abroad for higher education. Telugus from Andhra Pradesh and Telangana are the single largest ethnic group going to the USA for studies. As such they are also one of the biggest native population getting absorbed into different industries after their studies.

 

Telugus celebrate 29th of August as Telugu Language Day every year coinciding with the birthday of Gidugu Venkata Ramamurthy, a revered Telugu poet. The day is celebrated with aplomb across the state aided by funds doled out by the Andhra Pradesh state government.

Globalization Akin to Localization!

We have heard many say the world is a small place. True, it sure is a small place with connectivity to reach far and wide. But something you and I both will agree to is that it is an immensely diversified place. Each region, each country, state with its own distinct culture and language.

 

For businesses, connectivity has erased the challenge of distance and made the world a small place helping them spread their products and services far and wide. But they are grappling with the challenge of catering to a diverse populace. Their products and services are failing to reach their maximum potential as it is unable to address the concerns, likes and dislikes of a distinctly diverse population.

 

Help is at hand though as world over multinationals such as KeyPoint Technologies have stood up to address these challenges. Providing specialized localization solutions companies such as KeyPoint and others have made global go local. For many localization means the business of translation from one language to the other, but realistically the scope of localization is beyond just translation of languages.

 

While the base of localization is language, in modern day parlance it involves understanding the culture and habits of a given region or location. As such the scope of localization is immense owing to the way an industry wishes to approach a geography. Localization today is helping application developers develop or tweak existing applications as per the need and requirements of a specific crowd, catered in the language of their choice. Similarly, localization is successfully applied to legal content, product manuals, instruction manuals, description manuals as well as user interfaces.

 

Increasing demand for localization is propelling the industry towards rigorous growth. The industry is estimated to reach the $50 billion mark by 2021. While there is constant demand for localization services, there is also a need on part of the industry to be swift with improvements and technological advances to address the demands. The much talked about, in vogue and in use, AI technology is one technological advancement the localization industry is making optimum use of. Industry stalwarts are using machine learning, natural language processing and natural language understanding capabilities to provide state of the art localization solutions to their clients.

 

Localization has opened a new frontier for businesses as they look to spread far and wide, away from the saturated markets in the developed world. Developing economies are acting as the backbone for developed economies to sustain growth. It is here that localization is filling the void for users and businesses to get in sync and benefit, mutually.

How the Beautiful Game of Football Can Benefit From AI?

Every now and then comes a technology that is extensively covered by the media for the impact it has on business and day to day lives. Be it the emergence of big data, cloud computing or any other technology advancement, they have been written about and spoken about at length. One such technology that has caught the imagination of businesses and people alike is Artificial Intelligence, considered to be the ability of machines to think, comprehend and act like humans. There is hardly any sphere of life that is not getting impacted by the fast growing all encompassing technology termed, AI. Looking at the popularity of the technology and the scope it represents it makes sense to discuss how this technology could or is already impacting the sports arena.

 

In this post we look at the kind of effect AI can have on the beautiful game football with the biggest football extravaganza slated to take place in Russia from the 14th of June 2018.

 

Impact on coach and supporting staff

Coach and coaching staff who must keep a keen eye on their players can immensely benefit from developments in AI. Imagine a penalty shoot out taking place against an ace goalkeeper with an impressive track record. Advances in AI can help the coach understand by studying available video footage and data the exact way the goalkeeper is accustomed to reacting against a penalty. This in turn can guide the coach to choose the best among the set of available players. This again is possible because the coach has used AI tools to gauge and learn about the best shooter pipped against this goalkeeper. In addition, the coach can also learn about team formations that best suit his team against different opponents. AI can also help the coach and his supporting staff keep an eye on the exact way a given player moves around in the field, apart from observing the fitness of players, thus safeguarding the players from wear and tear.

 

Impact on individual athletes

AI in wearable for top athletes such as footballers can be a boon for it can guide the individual athletes on their exact fitness routine, diet etc. besides prompting suggestions on improving techniques like the power behind a shot or the way to hit the ball to get the desired curve in the shot.

 

Impact on marketing and advertising

Using video technology and AI, brands can substantially quantify the impact of their sponsorship buys. The soccer field is covered with an array of brands during a match but the adverts that attract the best ROI for a brand are the ones that are visible during the most exciting parts of a match. It is during intense moments in a game when the viewers are paying complete attention to the players and their surroundings. Besides the clips because of reruns on various channels and social media shares garner furthermore interest and eye balls for different brands. AI can help ascertain the best positioning for different brands helping them make viable sponsorship deals that are high on returns.

 

It is too premature to be thinking that AI will have any major impact this world cup in Russia, but the one thing guaranteed, the likes of Messi, Suarez, Mueller and Neymar will clearly outline what gifted humans are capable of on the football pitch.
