Different Types Of Payment Cards

The Credit Card (Shopping): The purpose o this card is to buy any item withing the limit prescribed by banks to cardholder. These cards can have both Magnetic stripe and Chip cards. 
Now a days all banks are issuing credit cards with CHIP and PIN. After entering the PIN by cardholder, then transaction starts for further processing.

The debit (ATM, Cash) card is a relatively new method of payment. It is different from a credit card because the debit cardholder pays with the money available in their bank account, which is debited immediately in real time. A debit card seems to be more dangerous compared to a credit card because the debit card is directly linked to the bank checking account and usually allows ATM cash withdrawals.

On the other hand, it is more protected by the required two-factor authentication (PIN number plus card itself). The real dangerous element of many branded debit cards is that they can be processed as credit cards, without entering the PIN.

Internet Of Things Basics (Part-4)

How propagator nodes will work in communicating devices in IOT: As noted previously, replicating even this highly efficient chirp protocol traffic indiscriminately throughout the IoT would clearly choke the network, so intelligence must be applied at levels above the individual end devices.

This is the responsibility of propagator nodes, which are devices that create an overarching network topology to organize the sea of machine-to-machine interactions that make up the Internet of Things.Propagator nodes are typically a combination of hardware and software distantly similar to WiFi access points. They handle "local" end devices, meaning that they interact with end devices essentially within the (usually) wireless transmission range of the propagator node. They can be specialized or used to receive chirps from a wide array of end devices. Eventually, there would be tens or perhaps hundreds of thousands of propagator nodes in a city like Las Vegas. Propagator nodes will use th…

Story IoT devices human intelligence basic concepts(2 of 3)

Creating like human intelligence in devices, software also alled artificial intelligence. Ambient intelligence because of it interactivity with the user is an attractive medium to advertisers. Some examples- 
Adswitch - This could be a large step forward for the advertising industry as not all adverts are able to reach their potential customers and now advertisers can target the correct market as the advert will adapt to the changing environment. The application of Ambient Intelligence in the Home Automation field is likely to continue as it can be simply allowed to disappear into the environment without home owners having to notice it carrying out the complex instructions that would make lives easier.  It is also likely that newer methods of interacting with the interfaces will be a hot area for some time to come as speech and touch have specific limitations. It can be argued that one of the main reasons that ambient intelligence has not been implemented widely today is due to the cons…

Story IoT devices human intelligence basic concepts(1 of 3)

The continuous technological advances have gradually surrounded people with a wide range of electronic devices and information technology. In this regard, it is necessary to develop intuitive interfaces and systems with some degree of intelligence, with the ability to recognize and respond to the needs of individuals in a discrete and often invisible way, considering people in the center of the development to create technologically complex and intelligent environments.

Artificial Intelligence-This paper describes ALZ-MAS; an Ambient Intelligence based multi-agent system aimed at enhancing the assistance and health care for Alzheimer patients in geriatric residences. Furthermore, this paper includes new changes made to this system regarding previous publications (Tapia & Corchado, 2007), including the integration of new wireless sensor devices to improve the system with new and better locating techniques.

How things are connected in IOT world. IT jobs are growing in this area across the world.

Earlier, we discussed how the IoT refers to the interconnection of distinguishable smart/intelligent objects or "things" and their virtual manifestation within the Internet or other IP structure. 

In essence, the IPSO Alliance describes smart objects as small computers at a cost of only a few dollars and with a minimal footprint. 

This means that, with the provision of processors (8-, 16- or 32-bit microcontrollers), memory (several tens of kilobytes), storage, and so on, along with an inherent ability to sustain an IP connection (perhaps limited to sending/receiving a few hundred kilobits per second), almost anything and everything can become connected at an affordable cost.

Internet of things(IOT) is a booming filed, along with human intelligence. Across the world all software companies investing heavily on these platforms to grab opportunities coming ahead.

I want to give here various applications we can use IOT:

For individual users, IoT brings useful applications like
home automationsecurityautomated devices monitoring and management of daily tasks.  For professionals,
automated applications provide useful contextual information all the time to help on their works and decision making. with sensors and actuators operations can be rapid, efficient and more economic. Managers who need to keep eye on many things can automate tasks connection digital and physical objects together. Every sectors energy, computing, management, security, transportation are going to be benefitted with this new paradigm.  Development of several technologies made it possible to achieve the vision of Internet of things. Identification technology such as RFID allows each object to re…

SAP-HANA Internet Of Things As Cloud Service

SAP this week pulled the curtain back on a version of its HANA cloud platform tailored specifically to Internet of Things applications.
The company said the private cloud service, based on its in-memory compute platform HANA, will provide the foundation for its IoT application services – analytics, telematics, its connected car services and manufacturing offerings. SAP hasn’t commented on whether it will open up the platform for non-SAP applications. But the company said the move means it now offers an end-to-end spectrum of IoT services. “SAP is helping customers reimagine their business with the most comprehensive portfolio of Internet of Things solutions from core business operations to the edge of the network,” said Steve Lucas, president, platform solutions, SAP. “With the launch of SAP HANA Cloud Platform for the Internet of Things, our customers and partners now have the ability to connect anything to any app or business process in their company and business network. This will ach…

Deferment In Credit Cards Business

Deferment is a temporary suspension of the repayment of a debt. Most creditors will not offer a deferment unless a debtor’s circumstances prevent him from making payments for a temporary period of time. A debtor, therefore, may need to provide documentation of his circumstances or may need to attest to the truthfulness of the request.

Credit Cards

Credit card companies do not normally provide a deferment as an option. Instead, a debtor who is experiencing a financial hardship, such as unemployment or a decrease in income, may ask the creditor to agree to reduce payment amount. Many credit card companies offer hardship programs that result in a reduced interest rate and a reduced payment. This may be a short-term plan for one year or less or a long-term arrangement that results in the payoff of the debt within a specific number of years.

Mortgage

A mortgage lender may offer a borrower a deferment, or forbearance. If granted a forbearance, the lender will suspend the borrower’s payments …

Understanding Cloud Computing

IaaS, Paas, SaaS

Cloud computing is commonly characterized as providing three types of functionality, referred to
Cloud computing refers to the delivery of computing services from a remote location over a network. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), a U.S. government agency, has a definition of cloud computing that is generally considered the gold standard. Rather than trying to create my own definition, I always defer to NIST's definition. The following information is drawn directly from it. Cloud computing is a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. This cloud model is composed of five essential characteristics:
On-demand self-service: A consumer can unilaterally provision computing capabilities, …
