October 9: Fire Prevention Day
Fire Prevention Day is all about spreading awareness regarding practices that can help prevent these disasters and appreciate firemen who risk their lives to prevent us.
Facility managers use smoke detectors in buildings, factories, schools, and hospitals. And no doubt these tools have proved to be big-time saviours. But what if you could get a warning before a fire breaks out? That may prevent fires from happening altogether or minimise their impact. Today, this is possible, thanks to IoT.
The fire safety sensors are able to detect temperature spikes and warn when a fire can spread. Not just that, technologies like PHASER are able to connect to fire stations, informing about the vitals about the firefighters & save their lives too.
Do spread the word because people tend to think that fires happen only in old, dilapidated buildings!
October 8: World Octopus Day
The octopus is one of the smartest creatures on the earth. It has 9 brains! One was renowned for predicting the FIFA winner in 2010.
Predictions are backed by data and intelligence, which in turn come from knowing about your customers' interests and behaviour.
It’s AI that recommends everything to you, from movies to products, based on what you’ve searched. And it's just the tip of the iceberg.
You’ll ace it all if you can predict what your customer is going to do next. Or which trend is about to be the norm tomorrow. Forewarned is forearmed!
October 7: World Architecture Day
World Architecture Day is a day to unite all architects of the world to appreciate & celebrate their work.
Architecture doesn’t mean the beauty or the grandeur of the buildings. Instead, it’s a way of orienting people towards the whole structure & telling them where they can do what.
Buildings are the only entities that have an architecture. It is an integral part of your website too.
Website architecture, along with UX & UI, is a way to guide the users into the space of what you offer – the what, how, why of your business. All in a simple way while giving them the info they’re looking for. In 3 clicks or less. While also giving them reasons to stay on your website.
All that happens with understanding your business goals, buyers’ persona, buyers’ journey, and user flow.
