The name might be replaced with a two digit number among other options that the company is yet to announce. According to a report by The Investor “LG is preparing a new brand strategy for the G series in the first half of the year. Numbering the phone with a two-digit number and rebranding the phone with a new name are some of the options on the table.” LG in 2012 had began pro- ducing the high-end G series with the launch of the Optimus G followed by the removal of the word ‘Optimus’ and keeping the ‘G’ for the series. The report suggests that this decision is an industry standard with Apple and Samsung having indulged similarly in the past. n Talk in Tech Corners RumouR m ill MYMOBILE 14 | FEBRuARY 2018 teammymobile.co.in

Limelight lead story february 2018 | 43 www.mymobileindia.com A new chapter in smartphone evolution is on the horizon. The fusion of aI with smartphone has gathered pace and your smartphone is all set to become smarter - rather intelligent and would have a mind of its own – very soon. and endorsing this view is Gartner which has forecasted that by 2022 80 percent of smartphones shipped will have on-device aI capabilities up from 10 percent in 2017. On-device aI is currently limited to premium devices and provides better data protection and power management than full cloud-based aI since data is processed and stored locally. The respected research body also points out that artifcial intelligence aI features will become a critical product differentiator for smartphone vendors that will help them to acquire new customers while retaining current users. “as the smartphone market shifts from selling technology products to delivering compelling and personalized experiences aI solutions running on the smartphone will become an essential part of vendor roadmaps over the next two years.” “With smartphones increasingly becoming a commodity device vendors are looking for ways to differentiate their products” says C K Lu research Director at Gartner. “future aI capabilities will allow smartphones to learn plan and solve problems for users. This isn’t just about making the smartphone smarter but augmenting people by reducing their cognitive load. However aI capabilities on smartphones are still in very early stages.” “Over the next two years most use cases will still exploit a single aI capability and technology” points out r oberta Cozza r esearch Director at Gartner. “Going forward smartphones will combine two or more aI capabilities and technologies to provide more advanced user experiences.” So here are 10 ways AI will empower smartphones according to Gartner: 1: “Digital Me” Sitting on the Device Smartphones will be an extension of the user capable of recognizing them and predicting their next move. They will understand who you are what you want when you want it how you want it done and execute tasks upon your authority. “your smartphone will track you throughout the day to learn plan and solve problems for you” says angie Wang Principle r esearch analyst at Gartner. “It will “Future AI capabilities will allow smartphones to learn plan and solve problems for users.

Limelight lead story MYMOBILE leverage its sensors cameras and data to accomplish these tasks automatically. for example in the connected home it could order a vacuum bot to clean when the house is empty or turn a rice cooker on 20 minutes before you arrive.” 2: User Authentication Password-based simple authentication is becoming too complex and less effective resulting in weak security poor user experience and a high cost of ownership. Security technology combined with machine learning biometrics and user behavior will improve usability and self-service capabilities. for example smartphones can capture and learn a user’s behavior such as patterns when they walk swipe apply pressure to the phone scroll and type without the need for passwords or active authentications. 3: Emotion Recognition emotion sensing systems and affective computing allow smartphones to detect analyze process and respond to people’s emotional states and moods. The proliferation of virtual personal assistants and other aI-based technology for conversational systems is driving the need to add emotional intelligence for better context and an enhanced service experience. Car manufacturers for example can use a smartphone’s front camera to understand a driver’s physical condition or gauge fatigue levels to increase safety. 4: Natural-Language Understanding Continuous training and deep learning on smartphones will improve the accuracy of speech recognition while better understanding the user’s specifc intentions. for instance when a user says “the weather is cold” depending on the context his or her real intention could be “please order a jacket online” or “please turn up the heat.” as an example natural-language understanding could be used as a near real-time voice translator on smartphones when traveling abroad. 5: Augmented Reality AR and AI Vision With the release of iOS 11 apple included an ar Kit feature that provides new tools to developers to make adding ar to apps easier. Similarly Google announced its ar Core ar developer tool for android and plans to enable ar on about 100 million android devices by the end of next year. Google expects almost every new android phone will be ar -ready out of the box next year. One example of how ar can be used is in apps that help to collect user data and detect illnesses such as skin cancer or pancreatic cancer. 6: Device Management Machine learning will improve device performance and standby time. for example with many sensors smartphones can better understand and learn user’s behavior such as when to use which app. The smartphone will be able to keep frequently used apps running in the background for quick re-launch or to shut down unused apps to save memory and battery. 7: Personal Profling Smartphones are able to collect data for

slide 45:

Limelight lead story february 2018 | 45 www.mymobileindia.com behavioral and personal profling. users can receive protection and assistance dynamically depending on the activity that is being carried out and the environments they are in e.g. home vehicle offce or leisure activities. Service providers such as insurance companies can now focus on users rather than the assets. for example they will be able to adjust the car insurance rate based on driving behavior. 8: Content Censorship/ Detection r estricted content can be automatically detected. Objectionable images videos or text can be flagged and various notification alarms can be enabled. Computer recognition software can detect any content that violates any laws or policies. for example taking photos in high security facilities or storing highly classifed data on company-paid smartphones will notify IT. 9: Personal Photographing Personal photographing includes smartphones that are able to automatically produce beautified photos based on a user’s individual aesthetic preferences. for example there are different aesthetic preferences between the east and West — most Chinese people prefer a pale complexion whereas consumers in the West tend to prefer tan skin tones. 10: Audio Analytic The smartphone’s microphone is able to continuously listen to real-world sounds. aI capability on device is able to tell those sounds and instruct users or trigger events. for example a smartphone hears a user snoring then triggers the user’s wristband to encourage a change in sleeping positions. n teammymobile.co.in “Smartphones will be an extension of the user capable of recognizing them and predicting their next move.

Stalwart industry players held and gained market position while years-old disruptors struggled to fnd their footing. Compared to 2016 flurry measured overall session app activity growth of just 6. While growth may have stagnated users continue to diversify their behavior while using mobile applications. Over the last year flurry’s app footprint grew to track more than one million applications across 2.6 billion devices globally. In this context flurry defines app usage as a user opening an app and recording what it calls a “session.” Mobile Session Growth Stagnates in 2017 This past year’s 6 growth is down from 11 in 2016. as we reported last year users now spend more than fve hours a day on their smartphones and shift their daily time spent between new and old app experiences versus giving more of their overall daily time.

102 | february 2018 In Conversation face to face MYMOBILE What is the role of Samsung Enterprises Business and how Knox has been a catalyst for the same In the enterprise business space Samsung has been doing lot of innovations in three to four years not only in terms of providing services and solutions but also developing its own platform to enable the enterprises of small and medium businesses and support their digital journey. We are probably the only OeM who has a dedicated enterprises team which is responsible for driving solutions and services across business spectrum from small to large organizations. We have set up technical solution team as an organization because we believe that a lot of these organizations need solutions. We have 5 rD facilities in India. We are working with software developers or end IT team of the particular organization to help them get their applications working on devices as best. We have Sea P program for the software developers to get their applications best on Samsung devices. We have best in-class service network which put together was where we were able to offer the best service and solutions to the enterprises. How is Samsung Knox different from Blockchain The biggest issue for an IT department is security. That’s where Knox brings in probably the best-in-class security environment. Samsung Knox gives you security at hardware level middleware level and at an OS level as well. Knox is the only security software which works at a chipset level. all others primarily work at an OS level. Knox as a platform is accepted by 29 countries worldwide. because Knox is our own program we have integrated it at chipset level and have a trusted boot zone or trust zone. When the device is booting up that’s when security integrity checks happen which is the frst level of security that has happened and no one else does today. at the middleware level we have something called Trust Zone where it’s constantly keep checking for any violation that may have happened. The third check is at OS level where we have the Knox containers set. Most of the MDM works at that level.blockchain is more on the finTech side. What are the concerns organization have and how Samsung Knox manages things for them There are two main concerns of any organization security and management and we do take care of it completely. We provide tools to manage their applications across platforms and user and help them manage the entire thing if we take care of these things they would be happier. These two can be the limiting factor of an organization in its digital journey. We enable them with our tools in their digital journey. The kind of plug and play services we provide through Knox help smaller and medium organization to save huge Samsung Knox an enterprise solution platform has been the core of most of the Samsung smartphones tablets and wearables providing chipset level security integration thus making them more secure and reliable. The same Knox platform is being used by various governments and their agencies to secure and manage their policies. Sukesh Jain Vice-president IT Mobile Enterprises Business at Samsung India highlighted various use cases of Knox with Haider Ali Khan as how it can help enterprises to build a more secure way to manage their businesses. Excerpts... “Samsung Knox as a security platform is being used by 29 countries worldwide”

In Conversation chief speak february 2018 | 57 www.mymobileindia.com amount of investment on IT side and they can use these tools very fast without too much of integration required for their business enablement. We bring in ease of deployment fexibility and above all security. What kind of customization Knox has to offer for Enterprises at the product level we are doing a lot of feature enablement from a business use case perspective. We’ve something called Knox Manage which is the eMM kind of a product wherein you can put in a lot of policies of what you want to drive as far as mobile is concerned. for example if you want the policy in terms of switching off the camera or switching on the GPS etc. We’ve another product called Know Customization is like a sales force automation tool. for example it can ensure that the GPS is always onor from a certain fxed time of a sales guy in order to locate his/her presence. We are not coming into personal domainit’s only for business use cases. It can help blacklist or vice-versa any app which an organization wants as part of its policies using Knox Customization. The third customization is we do two to three times more aPIs than any other normal aPIs. We call it CSDK or Customized SDK. This is at an application level so if you’re a software developer and you want to integrate your application far deeper into Samsung devices then we will open up SDKs and integrates your device into it. for example we have an Iris tablet. One of the premium airlines uses our tablet with our level of customization and many banks also do the same with our Iris tablet of eKyC aND eSign. Where Samsung Knox does comes into play for a common manas compared to an organization for a common person as end user the Knox container comes into play wherein they can keep their applications that they want for higher level of security in the container for example banking application. It has far deeper application from business perspective. business organizations want to drive very specifc policies for its employees it does not want you to use it anything from an offcial email. It does not want you to download anything from your device. Organizations can drive far stronger policies using Knox platform. We do not store any data. all we do is constantly checking whether any breach is happening on this or not. Are you lending this technology to others OEMs The products features are proprietary of Samsung because they open up the aPIs of our device. I cannot open the aPI of other OeMs but the Knox security platform can also manage iOS and android devices. The security available on Samsung devices is far higher than other devices but Knox can manage other OS and OeMs as well. The chipset level security is only available with Knox. What could be the newer domains for Knox It’s pervasive across all verticals. The financial sector has been the first and foremost adapter because security for them is paramount. Cab companies and lot of service industry is using our Knox platform. Various government departments are already using our Knox platform. even the Gartner identifes Knox as one of the top most secure platform available in the market. n haidermymobile.co.in

China Mobile has leapfrogged global operators exercising enormous domestic scale quickly transitioning to 4G LTE IoT connections and now aggressively rolling out NB-IoT connections to further exploit the IoT opportunities. China Mobile was a bit late starting its NB-IoT service but is now aggressively pursuing the service rollout. In August 2017 China Mobile issued RFPs Requests for Proposals for two projects worth a combined total of CYN 39.6 billion US 6 billion to achieve nation-wide NB-IoT commercialization by early 2018. 8 Vodafone grew 37 YoY and holds the second position with 10.9 market share. As of 3Q2017 Vodafone had launched NB-IoT in four countries including The Netherlands Ireland Czech Republic and Spain. Vodafone added commercial NB-IoT networks in Turkey and Australia in early 4Q 2017. 8 China Unicom grew 39 YoY and holds third position with 9.4 market share. China Unicom announced pre- commercialization of NB-IoT in May. Shanghai became the frst trial city for its pre-commercial network. China Unicom is still in the pre-commercial stage with no offcially announced tariff plan. It will have pre-commercialization in 10 domestic cities by the end of 2018. 8 ATT grew 23 YoY and holds fourth spot with 6.4 market share. ATT’s LPWA IoT strategy currently is focusing on LTE-M which the operator began rolling out in 2Q 2017 with initial applications being asset tracking pallet tracking and smart meters. 8 China Telecom grew 17 YoY and holds ffth place with 5 market share. In terms of NB-IoT it was the fastest developing company for NB-IoT connection among Chinese operators. It completed network coverage of 800 million people under NB-IoT by the end of June 2017 and announced commercialization of NB-IoT in July. In so doing it became the frst operator in China to offcially kick-off the commercialization of an NB-IoT service. 8 Asia grew 64.2 YoY and dominates cellular IoT connections with a 57.2 share. China is the major contributor with 81 of Asian connections and grew 75 YoY. 8 Japan And South Korea grew 15 and 25 YoY respectively. Japan holds 5 share and South Korea holds 2 share within Asia. 8 In terms of LPWA development South Korea is ahead of Japan. S.K.Telecom LG U+ and KT Corp commercialised their NB-IoT services in 3Q 2017. KT Corp also commercialised L TE-M in 2Q2017. South Korean Operators are looking forward to driving their LPWA connections in 2018 with specifc focus areas being agriculture and energy utilities. 8 Americas grew 20 YoY and holds second position with a 19.6 share. The USA’s four operators account for 68 of the connections in the Americas region. The US grew 17 Y oY. 8 ATT and Verizon are the only US operators that have so far commercialised LTE-M networks - both in 2Q2017. Within the US these two operators hold 72.5 of IoT cellular connections. IoT Study Highlights:

Today 4G LTe supports IoT with legacy 4G and LTe-Cat1 connections. The main application areas are for energy utilities and remote asset Monitoring. However going forward most of these applications will be supported by cellular LPWa technologies like eC-GSM LTe-M and Nb-IoT especially for low- power low-data battery-powered use- cases. These cellular LPWa connections are in the early deployment or trial phase and amount to less than 1 of the total cellular IoT connections”. Providing additional color on the latest trends in IoT connectivity strategies research Director Peter richardson noted “IoT cellular connectivity has been modest so far but we expect the next half billion IoT cellular connections to be added by 2020. The upcoming dual- mode modules supporting both LTe-M and Nb -IoT will further drive LPW a connections and we will see a decline in legacy connections as most of the earlier M2M type applications will migrate to LPWa networks. Players such as Vodafone will be able to accelerate the Nb-IoT roll-outs across multiple countries leveraging global scale to accelerate the cellular LPWa adoption internationally. China serves as a model where Chinese operators such as China Mobile and China Telecom are ramping up the roll-out and deployments at a rapid pace. This is also having a knock-on impact of lowering the overall module see here device and service costs”. Highlighting the cellular IoT connectivity opportunity and value r esearch Director Neil Shah notes “Cellular IoT operators are well-positioned to become a single and preferred source for IoT solutions by bundling IoT devices secure connectivity platform and data management. While some operators might lead in offering end-to-end IoT solutions for specific verticals e.g. connected cars or asset tracking for some verticals operators will still depend on system integrators and other solution providers to help customers deploy the complete solution. Having said that operators are better positioned to capture maximum value in IoT unlike in the smartphone space where much of the business opportunity was captured by OTT players. We should see a more integrated play by leading operators in the IoT space in mid- to long-term at least is some application areas.” n teammymobile.co.in “IoT cellular connectivity has been modest so far but we expect the next half billion IoT cellular connections to be added by 2020.

MYMOBILE 82 | FEBRUARY 2018 burn test iV OOMi i1 A Very Competent Budget Smartphone Tried Tested D ual cameras everywhere which is the new smartphone sporting the pair And in the growing number of smartphones with dual cameras we have a new entrant- the iVOOMi i1. Among the budget smartphones being launched by the Chinese company the recently launched ones are the iVOOMi i1 and the iVOOMi i1s. We got the i1 for review and here is the result of our burn test. Design The iVOOMi i1 gave me all the high-end premium feels when I frst saw it. Resembling the Samsung Galaxy S8 with its pseudo curved edges the smartphone is comfortable to hold. Starting with the aesthetics the smartphone made up of polycarbonate has a dual-camera module at the back with LED fash followed by a pleasant presence of a fngerprint sensor iVOOMi’s another frst and the ‘iVOOMi’ logo in the middle. Upfront there is a selfe shooter on the top with assortment of regular sensors. The left-hand side houses the volume rocker and the power on/off button the bottom end has speaker grille and the top end sports a micro-USB port and a 3.5mm audio jack. Overall the smartphone for the price it comes with is visually appealing and comfortable at the same time. Display The smartphone spans 5.45- inch and comes with an HD resolution. While the company claims the device to be the company’s frst to hop on the bezel-less bandwagon the smartphone still has wide enough bezels on the top and the bottom illusionary in the Jade Black colour variant given for review. The screen produces averagely bright colours and the icons pop out well making the usage convenient and easy on the eyes. Cameras: Two at Your disposal Apart from the touted Full Screen display the iVOOMi i1 has another highlight which is housed comfortably at the back the dual cameras with one rated at 13-megapixel and the other one standing at 2-megapixel featuring autofocus and LED fash. The dual cameras are also capable of creating the Bokeh going by the same name in the camera app. The primary shooter was able to capture good pictures be it in broad daylight indoors or in low-light. However with a closer look the details were not highlighted adequately and the images

slide 83:

burn test seemed slightly processed. On opting for Bokeh the smartphone did create the effect however seemed more like an amateur in the arena. The Bokeh created looked way too processed losing the naturalness of the subject. The one at the front is rated at 8-megapixel actually impressed me. The output was good not too exposed not too processed and was clear. Overall the camera performance has been fne for the price the smartphone has however the dual cameras could have performed better. Spec Sheet and Performance The iVOOMi i1 is powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT6737 processor and comes equipped with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of ROM. The internal storage comes with the option to expand up to 128GB via a memory card. For your knowledge the iVOOMi i1 and the i1s has only one difference the RAM/ROM confguration which in the latter’s case is an increased 3GB of RAM/32GB of ROM. Talking about the performance the smartphone worked fne while carrying out various tasks an average user would do. The social media browsing on apps such as Facebook Instagram WhatsApp and many more was convenient however with various apps in the background the smartphone did stutter. Numerous background apps led to the slow launch of the smartphone as well. For playing around with games such as the Asphalt 8 or any of the pre- equipped ones Cupcake Dreamland or Temple Paradise Dash the smartphone played averagely with the visuals appearing fne. Battery The i1 gets its energy from a 3000mAh battery which ensured that the smartphones lives a day without getting charged. The battery did not get use too quick however it took a lot of time to recharge the battery especially when connected to a PC or a laptop. Therefore my say on the battery is average. The smartphone runs Android 7.0 Nougat and the UI was user-friendly however the presence of bloatware remains. Furthermore the audio quality was fne too. Among many the pleasing factor the smartphone features is the rear-mounted fngerprint scanner which the company was initially reluctant to add. The fngerprint scanner unlocked the device in less than 60 seconds thus becoming a quick one. Conclusion The iVOOMi i1 for a price of Rs 5999 with dual cameras a fngerprint scanner and a premium design proves to be steal. However with the pros comes the cons and the smartphone still lacks the power of the dual cameras it houses. The smartphone stands against the likes of the Xiaomi Redmi 4A which comes with a better processor bigger battery and a 13-megapixel front camera. While the iVOOMi i1 has a share of misses it still proves to be a daily driver and can still make it to the nominations for the ‘best smartphone under Rs 6000’ title. n FEBRUARY 2018 | 83 www.mymobileindia.com Tried Tested VerDict 08 /10 07 /10 08 /10 07 /10 08 /10 OVERALL 76 For detailed specifcations please refer to My Guide PROS Dual Rear Lenses COnS Could be the Battery Looks Premium Feel Cameras Impressive Performance Fine Tuned Battery Lives a Day Value For Money A worthy purchase vanshikamymobile.co.in

What is the outlook for India in 2018 Many of the same general principles apply in the broadband and mobile space. Solid infrastructure emerging technologies and competition are all valuable to the advancement of broadband as well. f rom trends Ookla observed in 2017 Indian broadband has been steadily increasing over the past year. Given this trend it is reasonable to assume that unless something markedly changes that we will continue to see growth in 2018. Do you at Ookla believe that the India has the basic infrastructure lagging and is it related to the regulatory frameworks Our role is to measure the speed and performance of networks and not necessarily how they are set up and who may be responsible. The Speedtest Global Index a monthly updated ranking of internet speeds by country is a good way to track trends in India’s internet speeds.

While this is an obscure security vulnerability that is diffcult to achieve the potential of a high-impact security issue cannot be ignored and must be mitigated. “The current mitigation solution is via frmware and software updates and has a potential processor performance impact. This may result in an increased demand for high-performance data center processors in the short term but Gartner expects that in the longer term microprocessor architectures will be redesigned reducing the performance impact of the software mitigations and limiting the long-term forecast impact” said alan Priestley research Director at Gartner. Taking the memory sectors out of the equation the semiconductor market is forecast to grow 4.6 percent in 2018 compared with 9.4 percent in 2017 with field-programmable gate array fPGa optoelectronics application-specific integrated circuits aSICs and nonoptical sensors leading the semiconductor device categories. The other signifcant device category driving the 2018 forecast higher is application-specific standard products aSSPs. The predicted growth in aSSPs was infuenced by an improved outlook for graphics cards used in gaming PCs and high-performance computing applications a broad increase in automotive content and a stronger wired communications forecast. The mixed fortunes of semiconductor vendors in recent years serves as a reminder of the fckleness of the memory market” said Mr Lee. “after growing by 22.2 percent in 2017 worldwide semiconductor revenue will revert back to single-fgure growth in 2018 before a correction in the memory market results in revenue declining slightly in 2019.” n teammymobile.co.in

94 | february 2018 MYMOBILE Guest Column by Inv Itat Ion C hatbots started out as a fairly niche concept in technology but in 2017 have become a de facto prerequisite for every growing enterprise. With the advent of the Messengers: Whatsapp facebook Telegram Kik and more communication through text has become a way of life for most people these days. If a 60-year-old grandmother of three can happily be a group admin for three Whatsapp groups there’s very little standing in the way of chat becoming the new task completion platform. and chatbots simply help businesses ride this wave. for the uninitiated a chatbot is a conversational interface voice or text that enables people to interact with a human aided robot to get something done. Here are a few ways that we have seen chatbots redefne customer-business interactions: Here is how chatbots are redefning human/business interactions Aakrit Vaish takes you through the World of Conversational AI a chatbot is an excellent tool to reach out to customers at a personal level to help build a brand’s story and image. Due to the conversational nature of bots - queries concerns and rumours can all be dealt with individually. The customer’s perception is a brand’s reality and no one knows this better than fMCG brands which run purely on the strength of their media presence. With health consciousness and socio-environmental impact becoming a crucial focus for most modern brands and customers global brands need a way to allay their customers’ concerns and directly address rumours and queries. We found the Coca-Cola chatbot on facebook interesting where the bot allows the company to directly address rumours and concerns evangelise about the brand’s community and CSr initiatives and engage at a more personal level as opposed to traditional broadcast media - all through facebook Messenger n a The modern customer is inundated with a million ads and promotional material from every angle and has learnt to block most of these by now. Chatbots offer a more conversational natural way of introducing brands to customers. Chatbots can be used to help identify the needs of the customer and generate valuable leads for the brand in question. Here are two examples of chatbots being used for quality Lead Generation: Brand PercePtion Lead Generation

www.mymobileindia.com by Inv Itat Ion Guest Column a chatbot helps solve this principal pain point by conversing with the user to quickly understand their needs and provide services that they ask for quickly collect necessary details and send the service their way. The way you present your product decides whether a deal falls through. There are three key matrices that will help you close a deal: Presentation Speed and Quality. a chatbot is especially great to automate simple tasks like service bookings and provide instant replies reduce manpower costs and streamline the entire customer experience flow. Here’s an example: Housejoy has completely automated their entire catalogue of offerings and now allows users to fnd book and pay for services directly within the bot - all in a matter of minutes n I dentifying a pain point for the customer before presenting the product is an excellent approach especially for sectors like Insurance which see very little traction from traditional media. In this chatbot aimed to drive customer interest for life insuranceevery user was frst prompted to answer a few questions about their personal fnances in order to ‘Secure your future’. financial awareness being a universally relatable topic meant that people were curious and excited to know their results. after answering a few questions the user was given a score out of ten. This was followed by a prompt asking if the user would like to improve his/her score by getting in touch with an expert. Since the bot solved the customer’s genuine pain point the quality of leads generated was extremely high as opposed to those generated through traditional web-based forms. Customization is the new king n a chatbot radically increases the chance of a user actually picking a product from a multitude of options and reduces the overhead expenses and time needed to pick an offering which is crucial to any bfSI company. This chatbot for ICICI Credit Cards illustrates this well. financial management is intimidating to most young customers and the long forms unresponsive systems and simply add to the problem. by designing a bot that frst understood the customer’s income range spending habits and preferences every single customer interest generated stood a high chance of translating into actual business On top of that the bot went a step ahead to even book the appointment for documents pick up to further process the credit card application. n Service deLivery 1: identifyinG Pain PointS 2: imProvinG Product SuGGeStionS

96 | february 2018 MYMOBILE by Inv Itat Ion P roactively offering users some services that align with the core business is an excellent way to improve the value proposition of a company. a chatbot is especially conducive to this since every business has a need for an open communication pipeline in one way or the other. every brand has something to offer. before you ask your customers what they can give you tell them what they will get. This is a fairly well-known caveat but one that is rarely executed. In this examplethe Ziman app offers security as a service and the 24/7 built-in chatbot feature helps facilitate the communication between the user and the company thereby keeping the conversation alive and providing a valuable service in the process. This perpetually available security bot is the perfect extension of the Zicom’s offerings and is such a nifty tool to have in your pocket n v aLue ProPoSition C hatbots are excellent for projects that require immediate and effcient responses. Quickly answering questions providing helpful resources and being available 24/7 to any user around the world are no longer expensive resource-heavy endeavours. These situations have always been the best use cases for deploying bots and have seen some great results. Social initiatives are a major focus for quite a few companies these days but dedicating valuable manpower and resources to these initiatives are impediments. ‘akancha against Harassment’ is an online resource for victims of cyber harassment. The chatbot can help victims in real-time transfer sensitive cases to the right authorities provide phone numbers workshops and other resources. Chatbots are the future. according to Gartner 80 percent of businesses want to use chatbots by 2020. There are quite a few non-traditional businesses and organisations who are a part of the chatbot wave with use cases ranging from therapy bots to crypto-currency bots to fashion bots. bots are rapidly getting smarter more efficient and more pervasive. The aforementioned Gartner report even states that by 2020 the average person will have more conversations with bots than with their spouse. That’s a lot of chatbots in a lot of places. and the market is only growing. There is a need throughout the industry for more aI experts bot builders engineers and creative thinkers to build the next wave of chatbots.

february 2018 | 135 face to face www.mymobileindia.com How will the concept of smart video change the way consumers are infuenced Consumers do not have much choice when it comes to video content. The control lies on the supply end. The content is viewed the same way the vertical content provider wants the viewer to watch it. Hence VideoTap is a highly useful for the viewers to have a total control over the content to be viewed. Suppose if you are watching a movie for the frst time it is better you watch it linearly. However the consumption is high for the non original viewing such as compilations trivia and other types of videos for which VideoTap is highly relevant. What will be the biggest differentiating aspect of VideoTap VideoTap’s biggest differentiating aspects are that it is dynamic and personal. also we have a unique cloud based video tagging curating and authoring software Design room which will help producers to curate their uploaded video content create ‘smart videos’ and publish them. With Design r oom a Publisher is able to convert an existing video into an ‘interactive smart video’. What all smart video has to offer for the advertising industry In the advertising industry smart video has such a great impact that the viewers see it without realizing. Normally for advertising viewers have eight features on video platforms and since there are only 30 seconds the ad agency needs to decide one aspect to focus on when that message gets delivered into 30 seconds. for a sophisticated product like a luxury car different features appeal different people but there is restriction in terms of content. In case of VideoTap it adapts itself based on the interactive inputs from the user and there is much greater impact as the right audience receives the relevant message. Hence it is beneficial for the customer as well as for the advertiser. for a bMW product manager real time feedback can be generated in terms of which content is relevant for which kind of audience. for anyone who is interested in bMW 7 series a 30 sec ad is available for the view and the same ad is shown to someone who isn’t interested. On VideoTap ad takes you deeper into the categorization. Therefore it can expand to occupy the attention for a longer time span and do not restrict the viewer to the 30 sec ad so if you keep on clicking the ad will go on for more than 30 secs. Hence in effect what we do is instead of serving a video as an ad we are serving a website as an advertisement. Could you please refect upon some of the big changes that would be ushered by smart video in marketing and advertising industry firstly there will be huge amount of analytics available for the advertisers as they can get important data about the kind of audiences watching certain categories of the content. When advertisers map that portion of the video content to the whole content of the video then it is much easier to understand which portion of the video is working with the target audience. When mapped messaging against the content advertisers will understand which portion of the messaging is effective and which type of triggers work with their target audience. With the feedback questions feature available on VideoTap advertising is now a two way communication. What are your service roll-out plans In next few months we will enter in India as our frst market as a consumer viewership platform and in further few months we plan to enter the uS market. What will be your marketing strategies as VideoTap is a b2b as well as a b2C brand we are considering targeted advertising and we are also going to use Public relations as a tool for building the brand and taking in consideration the government initiatives such as Make in India Digital India and Start up India. We think we are a global company so we will be expanding very soon to the other parts of the globe. n nijhummymobile.co.in “We want to build a booming ‘Interactive Smart Video’ Ecosystem platform in India” VideoTap is an ‘Interactive Smart Video’ ecosystem which is built to deliver the smart video experience seamlessly across connected devices and at scale.
