Can an Electronic Device Repeat the Work of Authentic Master of Ayurvedic Pulse Diagnosis?

Master of authentic pulse diagnosis and Director of Ayurvedic Institute Dr. Vasant Lad tested the possibilities of VedaPulse(TM) computer pulse diagnosis system. Dr. Vasant Lad performed a traditional palpation pulse diagnosis on a volunteer. Dr. Oleg Sor

NOVOSIBIRSK, RUSSIAN FEDERATION -- (Marketwired) -- 07/11/14 -- While developing algorithms for VedaPulse(TM) computer pulse diagnosis, Dr. Sorokin was using ideas of the famous Ayurvedic doctor in the West - Dr. Vasant Lad. And recently he had a chance to meet him in person in his Institute's headquarters in Albuquerque, NM and to demonstrate his device. Traditional pulse diagnosis performed by Dr. Lad and testing done with VedaPulse(TM) device showed identical results (read more: http://vedapulse.com/articles/vasant-lad-highly-praised-vedapulse).

Dr. Vasant Lad and NAMA (National Ayurvedic Medical Association) Board of Directors highly praised VedaPulse(TM) algorithms as they allow to objectify authentic Ayurvedic terms and concepts.

Currently in many Western countries (in particular, Germany, USA) Ayurvedic medicine is getting legalized. Unfortunately, in most of the European countries, Canada, South America this process is at its infant state. This brings up the very important question of developing standards, based on objective diagnostic methods - which is a necessary condition for legal approval of authentic Ayurveda and its integration into insurance medicine.

While talking with Dr. Lad's students, many of which are also teachers of his Ayurvedic course, Dr. Sorokin found out that he has been dreaming that one of his followers would create a pulse reading device that could help objectify the teaching process and standardize methods for treatment prescription. We know that if three Vaidyas read pulse of the same patient, they will get three different conclusions based on their knowledge level. That's why Ayurvedic community needs an internationally approved technology that could objectively evaluate patient's condition based on Ayurvedic principles.

In conclusion Dr. Vasant Lad said: "Wonderful! You are the first scientist who created such accurate algorithm. Everything I found out in this patient, your device could also see. I've seen many devices that were said to be based on Ayurveda principles but none of them was good enough".

Ayurvedic Institute and NAMA members expressed their desire to work together with Dr. Sorokin's company to further popularize Ayurveda among Western doctors in USA, Russia and internationally.

Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and Containers together help companies to achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of D...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology.

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation; Alan Williamson, Principal ...
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
DevOps and microservices are permeating software engineering teams broadly, whether these teams are in pure software shops but happen to run a business, such Uber and Airbnb, or in companies that rely heavily on software to run more traditional business, such as financial firms or high-end manufacturers. Microservices and DevOps have created software development and therefore business speed and agility benefits, but they have also created problems; specifically, they have created software securi...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
