How 29-year-old Akshaya Shanmugam made it to 'Forbes 30 under 30's list

29-year-old Akshaya Shanmugam, hailing from Chennai, recently found a place in the 'Forbes 30 under 30' list of entrepreneurs and innovators corresponding to the healthcare sector. Her company, Lumme Inc., has produced an innovative device that helps people against addictive behaviour, and it was made after putting machine learning, behavioural psychology and wearable technology together. This device makes a prediction of a potential relapse when it senses the movements and actions of a person who smokes.

According to a report by Times of India, Akshaya said,

"Our platform automatically detects addictive behaviour, predicts indulgence in addictive behaviour, and prevents it by delivering clinically validated interventions. It also helps individuals gain better insights into their daily life and helps them understand the why, how, and what surrounding their lifestyle choices."

After finishing her schooling at the Chettinad Vidyashram in Chennai, Akshaya did her engineering at Sundararajan Engineering College, followed by higher studies in the US. In the year 2009, when Akshaya was doing her PhD, she was working on the development of systems that assess and monitor health. During this time is when she met Abhinav Parate, who was also working on a wearables-related thesis. With his help and a little assistance from her professors, she started up her company 'Lumme' with an objective to attempt and solve addiction.

Smokers wear smart watches through their routine and this device observes and analyses their behaviour as they smoke on a given day. It predicts when the smoker is going to start lighting another cigarette and an alert is sent six minutes before the act.

A Forbes profile of hers says that Akshaya has raised $1.7 million in non-dilutive funding for Lumme, from National Institute of Health.

According to a Financial Express report, Akshaya is also the recipient of the Hluchyj fellowship, Special Tang award, David Wolf prize, Glass family demonstration award. She has also garnered business scholar award, the Eugene M. Isenberg scholar award for two consecutive years.

Cheque books are here to stay - News from Indian Government

India has no plans of scrapping the cheque book. The Finance Ministry said that cheques are an integral part of the country's payments ecosystem and form the backbone of trade and commerce. The ministry was compelled to clarify as multiple news reports reported that the cheque book facility may be discontinued to push digital transactions. Deccan Chronicle reports that cheque book usage has increased, especially among traders, after the centre's demonetisation decision last year.

Trump's Order: Punish Those Companies That Outsource


WASHINGTON: U.S. President Donald Trump said he has prepared an "economic-development" measure that would punish companies that globally outsource jobs.

The bill would provide economic incentives for companies, Trump said in an interview published on Tuesday, and reward firms that maintain jobs in the United States, and deliver punitive measures against those that move operations offshore.

The bill would provide economic incentives for companies, Trump said in an interview published on Tuesday, and reward firms that maintain jobs in the United States, and deliver punitive measures against those that move operations offshore.

"It's both a carrot and a stick," Trump said. "It is an incentive to stay. But it is perhaps even more so - if you leave, it's going to be very tough for you to think that you're going to be able to sell your product back into our country."

He did not specify what the rewards or punishments would be. The White House was not immediately available to comment.

Trump, a New York real estate developer reality television host, has struggled to translate his business experience into government success, failing to push through any major legislative victories.

The Trump administration has repealed a number of regulations, such as the Clean Power Plan, which was former President Barack Obama's cornerstone regulation to fight climate change. The head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said on Monday he would rescind the rules.

Infosys may ask nearly 1,000 Senior Executives to leave

Recently, about 400 senior executives of Cognizant accepted the company's voluntary separation package. Cognizant had announced this programme for directors, associate VPs and senior VPs a few months ago.

French IT services major Capgemini had reportedly asked over 35 VP, SVPs, directors and senior directors to leave in February.

According to sources, nearly 1,000 Infosys employees at job level 6 and above (group project managers, project managers, senior architects and higher levels) are expected to be asked to leave.

Large IT services companies are all in the process of laying off employees on a scale not seen since the 2008-10 downturn. Those taking the hit first are mid- and senior-level professionals -- those with 10-20 years of experience.

Layoffs in the senior slab in the tech sector have been predicted by the Experis IT Employment Outlook Survey from Experis IT-ManpowerGroup India for October 2017-March 2018. The survey found very little demand for senior-level IT executives among employers.

In the survey, merely 3% of employers wanted to hire people at the senior level. The highest demand was seen for candidates in the 0-5 experience slab, with nearly 56% of the 500 employers surveyed displaying an intention to hire people in this group. Another 41% wanted to hire those at the middle level (5-10 years).

A major reason for layoffs at the senior level could filling up of vacancies internally rather than going for external recruitment. Another reason is automation taking away traditional team lead jobs becoming redundant.

For example, project leaders are increasingly being rendered superfluous as automation kicks in big-time and newer, more specialised roles emerge in India's $160-billion IT industry.

Peter Bendor Samuel, CEO of IT consulting firm Everest Group, said industry growth has slowed and the 'arbitrage first' segment (traditional IT services) is in secular decline. "When this is added to the pyramid factory model, which requires new freshers to be brought in every year to keep cost low, it results in an excess of more experienced employees," he said in an interview to ET in May.
