Over 60 percent of mid-sized and large enterprises are currently using or evaluating the use of no-code or low-code platforms to build enterprise BPM (Business Process Management) applications amid Covid. The survey conducted by Zvolv, an intelligent process automation platform, showed that in the last six months, nearly 30 percent of respondents have deployed at least one business application built on a no-code or low-code development platform.

Additionally, 75 percent of businesses surveyed have used or evaluated at least one RPA (Robotic Process Automation) bot in the previous year. This shift has resulted from the introduction of a new breed of tools that have enabled the development of applications that are extremely fast and require minimal reliance on IT, said a statement.

The study was conducted on over 400 business leaders from mid-sized to large-sized businesses in the APAC region. Hardik Gandhi, Founder & CEO, Zvolv, said: “Covid has accelerated the trend towards adoption of solutions that reduce human dependence where possible. Business process automation streamlines remote working in a variety of ways, and it has become a priority for every business. The market for rapid development tools, whether no-code or low-code, is primed for explosive growth.”

He added that many enterprises continue to be challenged due to the use of different tools for different processes, which prevents data from being unified.”The full capabilities of existing ERP/CRM tools are not realized due to cost and complexity, and often times the in-flexibility of installed solutions. IT teams are often back-logged with driven traditional application development approaches that require specialized resources,” the CEO said.

When you're pregnant, the immune system is seeing the placenta for the first time in decades.

The US researchers have discovered a class of immune cells that plays a role in miscarriage, which affects about a quarter of pregnancies.

Researchers at the University of California-San Francisco found that the recently discovered subset of cells known as extrathymic Aire-expressing cells in the immune system may prevent the mother's immune system from attacking the placenta and fetus.

The researchers showed that pregnant mice who did not have this subset of cells were twice as likely to miscarry, and in many of these pregnancies fetal growth was severely restricted.

"When you're pregnant, the immune system is seeing the placenta for the first time in decades -- not since the mother made a placenta when she herself was a fetus," said Eva Gillis-Buck, from UCSF.

"Our research suggests that this subset of immune cells is carrying out a sort of 'secondary education' -- sometimes many years after the better-known population of the educator cells have carried out the primary education in the thymus -- teaching T cells not to attack the fetus, the placenta and other tissues involved in pregnancy," she added. The findings are published in the journal Science Immunology.

It's not surprising that over half of those surveyed feel more comfortable using emojis than talking on the phone or in person.

The tiny emojis being shared on billions of devices worldwide can play a major role in digital communication, with most people saying that emoji compels them to feel more empathy towards others, according to an Adobe report.

Adobe's global emoji study found that emoji even helps people overcome language barriers and form connections that would otherwise be difficult to do.

"We were surprised and delighted by the discoveries made in the survey, most notably how enthusiastic respondents were for emoji as a means to express themselves," the company said in a statement.

Emojis sometimes get criticized for being overly saccharine, but this sweetness is key when it comes to diffusing some of the heaviness of online communication.

"Many of the emoji are focused on positive emotions, so it's easy to insert them into our conversations and lighten the mood," the Adobe study said.
