Photonic sensors in our ever-connected world

For those who are unfamiliar, I have a pleasure to recall that, Photonic sensors are defined as sensors that sense, emit, receive and convert the light energy into electrical signals. Photonic sensors were primarily used in high performance application such as night vision. However, photonic sensors has become ubiquitous, and have found invaluable in the fields such as in motion detection, blood oxygen monitors, cameras of cell phones, etc.

The optics and photonics technologies have tremendously influenced the economy, globally.

More and more interesting to observe that, the development of devices and services for industrial sectors and the developments in the field of fiber optics have ignited the need for photonic sensors, expanding the spectral range of sensors in use in several industries.  The installed sensors allow better sensing and detecting functions and also would be a highly opportunistic market for investment. 

Medical imaging, food inspection, industrial applications and community safety & security are some of the segments that have had unprecedented impact of the photonic sensor technology.

The blockchain and crypto-currency acceptance

It is exciting to observe globally, the industry players are showing interest towards the blockchain and crypto-currency acceptance and making a partnership and discussing with value chain players in order to understand the benefits of blockchain technology
In fact, we are still at the early stage when it comes to the crypto-currency and blockchain technology. But a lot of new players are entering the market as it holds huge business opportunities.
Especially, new start-ups are coming with new products/services. Increased collaborations, merger & acquisition activities are expected to continue. 
According to Research and Markets, the Crypto-Currency And Blockchain Technology Market will grow at a CAGR of 35.2% during 2016-2022, to aggregate $42.16 Billion by 2022 .

Here is where In-memory technology has gained significant traction over the years

It is exciting to experience that, accessing data from the in-memory database eliminates the seek time when querying the data, providing faster and more predictable performance. 
Applications that need fast response time such as telecommunications networks, and mobile advertising networks, most often resort to the use main-memory databases. 

In-memory technology has gained significant traction over the years, especially in the data analytics space, majorly due to the multi-core processors capable of addressing large memory and also due to availability of less expensive RAM.
