The importance of perspective and intelligent analysis...
During World War II, numerous fighter planes were getting hit by anti-aircraft guns.
Air Force officers wanted to add some protective armor/shield to the planes. The question was "where"?
The planes could only support few more kilos of weight. A group of mathematicians and engineers were called for a short consulting project.
Fighter planes returning from missions were analysed for bullet holes per square foot. They found 1.93 bullet holes/sq. foot near the tail of the planes whereas only 1.11 bullet holes/sq. foot close to the engine.
The Air Force officers thought that since the tail portion had the greatest density of bullets, that would be the logical location for putting an anti-bullet shield.
A mathematician named Abraham Wald said exactly the opposite; more protection is needed where the bullet holes aren't - that is -around the engines.
His judgement surprised everyone. He said "We are counting the planes that returned from a mission. Planes with lots of bullet holes in the engine did not return at all."
If you go to the recovery room at the hospital, you’ll see a lot more people with bullet holes in their legs than people with bullet holes in their chests. That’s not because people don’t get shot in the chest; it’s because the people who get shot in the chest don’t recover.
Remember the words of Einstein - "Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted, counts."
From the book - "How Not To Be Wrong" by Jordan Ellenberg
Many of you know that we were the biggest in terms of a chat platform in our Avatar as “Helpchat” in the last few years, where we created a super awesome chat backend to handle a lot of use cases from ordering a cab to getting your laundry done using automated bots to ordering groceries and many more.
As you all know,
A few months back Whatsapp launched “Whatsapp for business” where an enterprise business can access Whatsapp APIs to integrate their products /services on Whatsapp to give users an awesome experience, like you must have seen when you book a movie ticket, Bookmyshow sends you the ticket on Whatsapp, MakeMyTrip, Goibibo and many more are doing something similar.
Here’s the interesting part:
We have one of the worlds best chat platform which fits naturally in this whole equation, I met CIOs / COOs of Kotak, Aditya Birla Group and gave them a demo of our chat software which can integrate with Whatsapp and their internal systems to give their users an awesome experience and they were “Mind Blown” to see our system, I could sense their excitement to see such a software already available and ready to deploy on moments notice, they had never seen such a thought through product, polished with a lot of use cases already implemented.
Seeing this opportunity we sent out a mailer to a lot of enterprises telling them about us and what we can do for them with Whatsapp more than 220 enterprises signed up for our Webinar to know more and to see what we have to offer.
Sometimes in our lives dots connect in unexpected ways - the key is to keep working hard and moving forward.
