Internet is not just as social media


By Khalid Mustafa

We are living in the Era were we can observe that time is running fast, not by means of the clocks or watches we wear but the speed the development and technology overcome our day to day life tasks and issues.  World is trying to higher levels to achieve the goal of complete usage of Artificial intelligence by means of Computers and other IT gadgets. In many parts of the world and in India the AI is main priority to be implemented in every sector of living like in Medical sector, Defence, education and other businesses and organizations. Artificial intelligence (AI) has received increased attention in recent years. Innovation, made possible through the Internet, has brought AI closer to our everyday lives. From solving common mathematical problem to the launch of space ship, the AI is the primary first step.


Email filtering (Email services use artificial intelligence to filter incoming emails. Users can train their spam filters by marking emails as “spam”).  Personalization (Online services use artificial intelligence to personalize your experience. Services, like Amazon, flip kart, Youtube or Netflix, “learn” from your previous purchases and the purchases of other users in order to recommend relevant content for you). Fraud detection (Banks use artificial intelligence to determine if there is strange activity on your account. Unexpected activity, such as foreign transactions, could be flagged by the algorithm). Speech recognition (Applications use artificial intelligence to optimize speech recognition functions. Examples include intelligent personal assistants, e.g. Amazon’s “Alexa” or Apple’s “Siri”). Robotic Engineering, Defense Engineering and other such computer formed engineering in our country are the examples of AI.

Robotics in one of the usage of AI which changed the scenario of living. Artificial intelligence is a technology that is already impacting how users interact with, and are affected by the Internet. In the near future, its impact is likely to only continue to grow. AI has the potential to vastly change the way that humans interact, not only with the digital world, but also with each other, through their work and through other socioeconomic institutions – for better or for worse.

If we are to ensure that the impact of artificial intelligence will be positive, it will be essential that all stakeholders participate in the debates surrounding AI. As AI is an Internet enabled technology, the Internet Society recognizes that understanding the opportunities and challenges associated with AI is critical to developing an Internet that people can trust.

But unfortunately, J&K (Jammu & Kashmir) is still waiting for the high speed internet and we are far behind in concept of Artificial intelligence and its implementation in day to day work and businesses. We are not in position to have the online services available to launch our business online in cyber world. Such things not only make us lose in respect to economy but also in emotional manner also, we lack the potential of being online and discover new things despite J&K have already many skilled IT person’s and engineers which are not ready to invest and trying to move from J&K were their skills are being respected and nourished. To us the AI is limited to have ATM installed in our state and have CT scan machine in our hospitals. But AI (Artificial Intelligence) is lot more.

After problems we come up with the solutions, but we should have solutions before problems. Due to COVID19 and Lockdown the people of J&K became aware about many application platforms like Zoom app, Microsoft Teams, Skype Meetings etc otherwise people was just limited to social media only or submitted online exam or job forms. This is because of the poor execution in IT sector. Limited learning in education sector about IT as the people of J&K may be thinking that internet is just a social media.

With AI pilots and projects live all over the globe and in our India, and new use cases added daily. There are risks in cyber world, but we know how to manage them. Audit algorithm outputs for accuracy. Integrate cyber security. Ensure human control of sensitive processes. Be a first mover so it doesn’t leave you behind. Adopt responsible AI that benefits society. Protect privacy and keep up cyber laws on full force.

We should come forward to have high speed internet available in our educational, business, engineering, defense and medical sectors to enable professionals to discover new things with new AI gadgets and robotics. Apart from many other webcasts to the students the webcast, online / offline seminars should be come into power to educate the skilled youth about the technology and its usage in day to day life. Technology will never eliminate the human power but can add one more intelligence to human race, and help in growing us in our country – economically, financially and emotionally.
