2Impact of Emerging Technology on the Economy of a CountryIndia is the second most populous nation in the world. The large population creates tremendous challenges because of the human activities required to sustain it. One of the major challenges facing India with significant socioeconomic costs is air pollution. According to the World Bank (2021), about 1.4 billion people are exposed to unhealthy levels of pollution, which have the potential to cause numerous health problems. The internet of things (IoT) is an emerging technology with the potential to help India reduce high levels of air pollution. This paper will define the air pollution problem, its socioeconomic costs, and the IoT as a potential solution to the problem.Air Pollution in IndiaAir pollution in India is significantly prevalent and poses numerous socioeconomic challenges. According to the World Bank (2021), the Indian population is exposed to high levels of air pollution that threaten their health. The most affected people are those living in cities. The economic activities in cities such as large numbers of motor vehicles and factories make them susceptible to unhealthy air pollution levels. For instance, according to Bathini (2020), one of the recent pollutant leakages in a factory occurred on the outskirts of the city of Visakhapatnam. There are numerous socioeconomic costs to those affected by the air pollution challenge. The World Bank (2021) argues that one of the socioeconomic effects of air pollution is the high rate of deaths arising from health complications. For instance, in 2019, people’s exposure to high levels of air pollutants caused 1.7 million deaths. The significant number of deaths creates further socioeconomic costs such as the cost of replacing workers who die. Additionally, those who die from air pollution are income earners who support their families. Consequently, their deaths represent lost income and significant suffering to their dependents. For instance, in 2017,
3the income lost due to pollution ranged from $30 billion to $78 billion, which was equivalent to between 0.3% and 0.9% of India’s GDP (World Bank, 2021). Such high socioeconomic costs require the nation to use all means possible to minimize the impact of air pollution. Emerging Technology to Solve the ProblemAlthough there may be numerous emerging technologies with the potential to help reduce air pollution, the IoT is the most ideal because of its capacity to increase the visibility of pollution levels in real-time. According to Oracle (n.d.), IoT refers to a network of objects that are connected with software, other technologies, and sensors for the purpose of sharing data over the internet. The interconnected devices can help monitor air pollution levels in real time, which can facilitate quick decision-making to prevent the pollutants from reaching unhealthy levels. The cost of using IoTs is relatively low compared to the traditional costs of utilizing air quality control systems. According to Parmar et al. (2017), conventional air monitoring systems are both bulky and costly. The high costs are inhibiting because they make it challenging for organizations to install the systems on a massive scale. It is probably the reason air pollution has continued to rise untamed in India due to the limited number of air quality monitoring systems. Parmar et al. (2017) suggest that using IoT provides a cheaper alternative to the traditional method of environmental monitoring because of the technology’s low cost. Toma et al. (2019) point out that the components of an air quality monitoring device using IoT in the United Kingdom cost about US$900 and a second version of the same device cost US$1000. Such costs are relatively low, especially if those with a desire to use IoT-based air quality monitoring systems are organizations or cities. Therefore, the cost of using the technology is low, which increases its potential for use.
4The stage of development of IoT is critical when considering its viability as a potential solution to the air pollution facing India. Two frameworks that evaluate the developmental stages of technologies include the Hype Cycle and the 6 Ds of disruption model. The stage of development in the two frameworks can help predict whether the technology will grow and gain the potential to provide meaningful value to corporations. According to Bremild (2021), the Hype Cycle has five stages, which include innovation trigger, the peak of inflated expectation, the trough of disillusionment, the slopes of enlightenment, and the plateau of productivity. The IoT is in the early slope of enlightenment because of its current increased use in business-to-business and industrial operations after reaching the trough of disillusionment stage where it underperformed in terms of adoption against expectations (Bremild, 2021). Its position on the slopes of enlightenment shows increased potential for widespread adoption, which can help it develop further and become effective at helping India deal with the air pollution problem. The 6 D’s model has six stages, which include digitized, deceptive, disruptive, demonetized, dematerialized, and democratized (Calvo, 2018). The IoT is at the deceptive stage of the 6 D’s model, because it is just starting to show its potential. It may thus not seem useful or impressive currently, but may move to the disruptive stage and surprise people. The gradual adoption at the business and industrial levels means that the technology may have the potential to help India monitor and thus reduce air pollution. The IoT can foster sustainability practices in the Indian economy to a significant extent. Air pollution is a threat to the environment that companies must conserve to sustain their operations. When air pollution continues to increase, companies to lose employees who get sick as World Bank (2021) has demonstrated. The loss of workers may disrupt the economy’s growth and thus threaten its sustainability. The use of IoT to minimize air pollution is thus part of
5sustainability practices. The adoption of IoT successfully may encourage organizations in India to seek similar technologies to address sustainability challenges, which may embed sustainability practices in the Indian economy. The success of IoT in reducing air pollution will thus set the stage for stakeholders in the Indian economy to embrace sustainability practices using emerging technologies. How LG can Use IoTs to Solve the Pollution ProblemLG is a Korean MNC with operations in India. The company has faced a pollution problem in the past that resulted in fatalities. According to Bathini (2020), a leakage of styrene gas at an LG polymers factory in India caused 12 deaths. Had the company used an IoT-based air quality monitoring system, it could have noticed the leakage and taken remedial action to prevent further leaks. Consequently, it could have saved the lives that were lost. LG can thus use IoT to connect sensors and control devices in its factories to monitor the air quality in real-time through the internet. Such live monitoring can help managers at factories make quick decisions to take corrective measures in case pollutants are identified in the air. Such use of IoT can improve sustainability practices since it directly improves the company’s ability to reduce its impact on the environment. ConclusionAir pollution is a serious problem facing India with significant socioeconomic implications. The country incurs costs due to loss of labor productivity while families incur the loss of revenues when relatives die due to air pollution. IoT is an emerging technology with the potential to help both India and corporations operating in the country minimize air pollution. The technology has the potential to promote sustainability practices because air pollution reduction is often a sustainability practice goal.

Johnny, the IoT is not a solution. It is a tool that can be used to monitor the level of pollution, but it (the IoT) can’t alter the pollution level or do anything that actually ‘fixes’ the problem. It is a ‘tool’ for monitoring whatever ‘fix’ you put in place to see if the ‘fix’ is resolving the problem.

Read the following first then answer the question below: In January 2013 – durin

Read the following first then answer the question below:
In January 2013 – during my IMBA at IE – I was accepted to Venture Lab – IE’s startup incubator.
My idea aimed to solve the problem of inefficiencies in the live events ticketing industry.
In my eyes – empty seats at an event is lost revenue for the venue, as well as sold-out events, where tickets sell on the black market for more than double or triple their face value – again – lost potential revenue for the venues.
In Venture Lab, I teamed up with a classmate with a technical background, and we formed our team. For the next 5 months, quickly gaining industry knowledge, we sought out to validate a solution which could potentially solve this problem. These were our main takeaways from months of research and validation:
Pricing: We defined the main issue as a pricing problem. In live events, seat prices are usually static (the price remains fixed regardless of whether the customer bought early or late). The main problem with static pricing (in all industries) is that it will never maximize revenue, due to the notion that every person who bought the item (was not priced out), could have potentially paid more.
With static pricing, the seller defines a border, where consumers are either priced out (too expensive for them), or underpriced (could have potentially paid more).
With time-based events (travel, concerts, sports), the static problem is amplified, since the value of the item fluctuates according to supply and demand and proximity to event.
Go-to-market: As we were defining our solution, we started looking into potential penetration markets, and zeroed in on Spanish football for the following reasons
The sheer size of the problem – as I showed you in class – 19 million Euros in unsold tickets every weekend in the Spanish first division alone.
At the time – the majority of Spanish football clubs were in debt (still are) and looking for additional revenue channels.
Studies show that the Spanish consumer is on the high-end of price sensitivity, meaning, they will be looking for bargains.
Spain was one of the top 5 countries globally in smart-phone penetration.
Credit Card/PayPal transactions were the most common payment methods for football tickets.
(And of course there were many problems we had overlooked and only ran into at a much later stage)
After carefully defining our problem and go-to-market, we dove deeper into our research and validation of possible solutions – Here’s a brief outline of our proposed solution:
Consumer side app:
Users would pick their match and sector where they’d like to sit.
They would have an indication of the face value of the ticket in that sector, and they’d input how much they’d like to pay, and the amount of tickets.
They would guarantee their bid with a credit-card or Paypal
Approx. 24 hours before the match, the user would be notified (email+sms) whether they managed to obtain the ticket. In the case of a yes, the credit card would be charged and tickets emailed. In the case of a no, no charge would be made.

Venue side dashboard:
The dashboard we’d provide the venues’ ticketing managers was the real magic in the idea:
Our system was to integrate with their existing ticketing channels.
It would display how sales were progressing in each sector (via their other sales channels), and how many bids were being placed and at which prices in the various sectors.
They’d be able to play around with setting the minimum winning price for each sector, and they would see how much additional revenue they’d generate depending on the price they’d select.
Once a winning price was set, all users who bid that amount or more would win, credit cards would be charged, and tickets emailed.
In order for our system to pull it off, It would have to know how to allocate bid winners to available seats, and create valid tickets for them at the prices they’d bid.
The system would also take into account the bid amount when determining the quality of the seats.

After defining this solution, we’d put together an ugly html based demo of both the consumer and venue side applications, and started meeting potential clients.
Venture Lab ended when we graduated in May. We ended the project as one of the finalists among 30+ teams, we had the demo we’d put together, and by that point, we had spoken to a few football clubs in Spain who showed interest, and we were discussing several alternative business models with them.
At that point, I had to make a decision between entering a career in consulting, or pursuing “People Sports” (soon to be rebranded to “Never Empty”).
Deciding to pursue Never Empty, I set out to raise $500,000 from angel investors based in Israel and the USA.
4 months later (Sep. 2013) – we had the full amount secured, and were more than happy to start spending it.
In September 2013 we had closed our initial round of funding. At the time we were working with several agencies in order to build our network within the local football and ticketing industry.
Technology-wise, we had a simple demo of our envisioned product, but were miles away from a market-ready platform.
My co-founder’s technical experience was mainly around integration of software and hardware, he had the ability to design the platform architecture, but lacked the expertise needed to code the front and back ends (customer facing app and venue facing dashboard/control panel).
We had defined January as the month when we’d like to launch our first test-market, and were debating whether to start building our in-house team, or rather outsource development of the platform’s first version.
What would you do? You can talk about the pros and cons of in-house vs. outsourcing in early stage ventures, or any other related idea or topic.
