A brief overview of the nature of Physical Digital Retail  #21stCenturyRenaissance

Retail has become a blur – with Physical Stores and Online Retail (together with Mobile) – each approaching the other to create something new – Physical Digital Retail.

Target, Macy‘s and Walmart, the Physical Stores, are focusing on

  • Online Retail and
  • In-store Mobile Tracking & Commerce

while Amazon and Google, the online giants, are investing in

  • “Same-day delivery Services” (the “instant gratification” factor – that only Physical Stores could offer in the past).

 

“In-store” Intelligent interfaces that interact with customers are beginning to make their appearances in Physical Stores.

Big Data and Analytical Tools will get popular among Physical Retailers for tasks such as

  • Sales pattern investigation
  • Supply chain management (SCM)
  • Product placement in Stores (utilizing methods such as Market basket Analysis).

 

Physical Digital Retail” is big!

Next Generation Web Search Engine  #AtMyVentures

A Search Engine based on Real World “Entity” Recognition in Webpages and Information Extraction (IE)

Rather than just Word indexing and Hyperlink Analysis (Current Generation Web Search Engine – introduced in 1998 by Sergey Brin and Larry Page through the Google Search Engine.)

We have had the same Search Engine technology for the past 17 years, with little incremental improvements.

Incremental Improvements included:

1. Refining Search Results based on User Clicks, etc (using Machine Learning Models. Changing “Parameter” values in Equations and testing to find out if users like the newer version more).

2. Parallel & Distributed Processing (to handle the ever increasing size of the Web and the number of Documents it contains)

3. Caching Search Results (for faster responses)

4. Adding “External” Semantic Data on the Search Result page, and in “Domain Specific” Search Engines (e.g., Books, Shopping, etc.).

Instances: Google bought Freebase and integrated the “Knowledge Graph”. Microsoft bought Powerset – the Wikipedia Search Engine.

Structure & Architecture

Customizable Modular Home

Robots that can customize a modular house (built of connectable bricks and rearrange-able) according to your design. In other words, you specify a design for your house on your Computer and Robots build / rearrange bricks to build the house (and 3D Print parts if necessary).

Inspiration for the Idea:

I was thinking of how my house is going to look like. And I thought, it would be cool if I could change the overall structure of my house every now and then (Living in the same house for years would be way too boring!) and my wife, who wants to be an Architect, should like it too (Changing the structure of the house to suit changing tastes).

Current State Of Science & Technology In Iran

In general, the state of Science & Technology in Iran is Developed.

In fact, if one leaves out Israel, the state of Science & Technology in Iran is the most advanced in the Middle East, South Asia & South East Asia Region.

But research is mostly limited to the Public SectorUniversities & Government Facilities.

Apart from Medical Research – that can be easily translated into Medical or Surgical Practices – very little Research is translated to Private Sector (generating Economic benefits / Wealth).
Pharmaceutical / Biotechnology Industry is exemplary in Translational Research.

Biochemical Research, Nanotechnology Research, Medical Research, Nuclear Research (which must be limited to Nuclear Power Plants and not as another threat to the World), Aerospace Research, Robotics, Microprocessor Manufacturing, Super-Computers

– Iranians are doing advanced research, but only in the Public Sector.

What seem most promising –

  • Iranians are talented and
  • Research facilities seem to be in place.

To become an Economic Powerhouse, Iran needs High Technology Companies – which – its state of research indicates – it is capable of – although yet to materialize.

I am willing to provide guidance for:

Development of High Tech Industries in Iran.

If Iran is only the 9th country to put domestic-built Satellite into Orbit [Public Sector], why can’t an Iranian Firm build a Commercial Aircraft [Private Sector]?

Different body of Expertise (& Outlook), Institutional Structures & Policies are required for

Development of Research & Engineering Based High Tech Industries [Translational Research – turning research into Market Products] :

Expertise

  • e.g., Knowledge of International Market.

Outlook

  • Research is not just about publishing Papers and dreaming of the glory of winning Prizes & Awards! Translating Research into Industrial Products and making your country wealthier is equal in “glory”!
    • Required Outlook: How do I incorporate my research into an Industrial Product?

Institutional Structures

  • Venture Capital Firms and other Financial Institutions that are bold enough to invest in Companies that bring “research – generated products” to Markets.
    • In many Developing Nations, where there aren’t many High Technology Firms and not a lot of success stories, Investors struggle to believe in success of such Firms.

Policies

  • e.g., Policies that encourage Entrepreneurship

Note

Israel is a very good example of a country that has mastered the art of turning “Research” into “High Tech Industries”.

Iran can, and should learn from Israel.

Here is a nice book to start with:

Start-up Nation: The Story of Israel’s Economic Miracle by Dan Senor, Saul Singer
