InCights is a small start-up and has been challenging the existing limits. Be it man power, technology challenges, financial visibility, change in opinions and so on. As far as I can say, we have seen a good amount of technology and other challenges. Envisioning the solution that will start to get in use after good number of months, splitting work in the team so that delta by delta we reach to that goal, reading research papers, literature, interviews, business applications and real life challenges makes one to plan for that on paper and in mind. Lot of unexpected things happen even after planning. Sometimes you get support and other times even those from whom you were sure to get support, pulls out silently.
It is often said that every scientist after a time turns towards spirituality or gains his inspiration from the mother nature. I remember while attending a conference at IIT Guwahati, Prof Yagnanarayana was giving his Keynote. He said, humans can't produce same speech signals (in technical sense). This diversity in speech signals make the neurons in the brain to get trained for that person's speech. For the same target person, brain receives different different speech signals and that brings robustness in identifying the person based on the voice. Mother nature brings diversity in the whole system so that meaningful reasoning and analysis can be generated to bring consistency and robustness (and machine learning gets its inspiration from that). Same happens in life. Diversity of the environment makes one to grow in different dimensions. Start-ups are the best means of professional pursuit in that sense.
How to manage your affairs in limited resources, how to learn the things which you have never built, how to train the work force so that they get confidence and motivation and in turn enjoy their work. How to convince and show them bigger picture is what one can learn while doing start up journey. Even sometimes you push yourself so much that you start to think like a hermit. It happens at least for the people who sometimes think technology while eating, walking and sleeping. All in all, it is journey worth taking if you sincerely enjoy your work and believe in pushing to the limits of your imagination and working capacity.
We are now moving towards showcasing our pilot to the leads we have generated. The path is full of adventures and excitements.
