When Technology is a source of Inspiration

By Shereen Shabnam

After working behind the scenes over the last few years for IoT Middle East, Digital Health Middle East and handling global technology clients on a regular basis, I never thought I would be more impressed with new innovations any more until recently when an agency selected me to moderate roundtables with industry professionals across multiple countries and representing brands that are at the forefront of new innovations.

Speaking with industry leaders in the world of technology and in the presence of CIOs from a multitude of different industries has led me to embrace the new world of workplace solutions that has helped me consolidate the way I live and work.

These days, it is possible for people to start the day with a smart toothbrush, get the car started before even getting in and control the temperature, lighting and air quality in the home and office.

During a recent AI conference, we found out more about machine learning and analysing data electronically that is not just impressive but game changing for businesses.  Automating our tasks helps save time and this impresses me most.

Plus of course the new age technologies that allow us to hold virtual meetings and seamless interactions with colleagues abroad are the order of the day especially with remote work during and post pandemic.

Currently we use applications like Whats app, skype, IMO, zoom, facebook and teams which has made communication easier and more affordable. Next week, I will be moderating a panel focused on containerisation followed by an interaction with experts offering workplace solutions globally.

The more roundtables I do for the world of technology, the more impressed I am. If you see our magazine turning into advocates of new age innovations, you know where that inspiration came from.  Let us embrace more apps and solutions that make our life that much more interesting.

Bigger, Better, Bolder: All-new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe

Shereen Shabnam

We recently spent a week exploring the UAE with the completely redesigned Chevrolet’s iconic full-size, all-new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe which has emerged bigger, bolder and better for 2021, boasting an impressive interior and unmatched technology.

The new 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe’s off-road capability has been transformed and comes back better equipped and efficiently balances performance and practicality. It drives and feels like the most capable, most confident and most connected Tahoe than ever before after having been through a complete transformation. It combines the strongest aspects of its new full-size truck architecture with entirely new systems tailored for the needs of today’s SUV drivers and passengers.

Thanks to Chevrolet designers, the all-new Chevrolet Tahoe offers customers more choices than ever before, made possible by the new architecture. Each trim has been carefully refined for drivers to find the perfect blend of eye-catching design and premium comfort that best suits their lifestyle.

Inside the cabin, the biggest change that customers will notice is the additional space that offers comfort for all passengers, making every seat the best in house.  We found it to be a practical full-sized SUV suitable for every adventure and it delivers the smoothest ride, on and off-road.

The 2021 Tahoe optimizes performance and yet is good with conserving fuel. The updated V-8 engine comes with Dynamic Fuel Management and Auto Stop/Start tech, all mated to an advanced 10-speed automatic transmission as standard.

Inside the all-new Tahoe is unrivalled connectivity and technology, with up to five display screens in total, including an 8-inch-diagonal central color touchscreen and 10-inch-diagonal central color touchscreen on LT trim and above all in High Definition. Available are also an 8-inch-diagonal instrument cluster, 15-inch head-up display, dual 12.6-inch diagonal rear seat LCD displays, keeping rear passengers entertained through the longest drives.

Other features include HD Surround Vision and Rear Camera Mirror, Automatic Emergency Braking, Rear Pedestrian Alert, restraint system with inboard seat-side airbag and Passenger Sensing System, Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Alert, Following Distance Indicator, Front Pedestrian Detection, Rear Park Assist, Rear Seat Reminderand IntelliBeam automatic headlamp control.

The driver awareness technologies include new Rear Pedestrian Detection, Side Blind Zone Alert with Lane Change Alert, Lane Keep Assist, Front and Rear Park Assist and best-in-class Head-Up Display, many of which are standard on the majority of Tahoe models.

We like that the all-new Tahoe is available with a Wi-Fi data plan for up to 7 devices, keeping passengers connected, wherever the road may lead. It is the perfect spacious and reliable SUV to have for a family adventure or even for daily use for school runs, golf weekends and in my case, retail therapy as well. The boot can easily accommodate my golf bag, gym bag, weeklong grocery shopping and still has space for enough shoes to see me through an entire week of events.
