This time the 'intelligent' machines will decide for themselves, are we ready?

This time the 'intelligent' machines will decide for themselves, are we ready?

The instrument will communicate with the instrument itself, what is our future?

The members of the World Economic Forum were somewhat surprised by the results of the survey. India is now number one!

The subject of the survey was, what is the number of people addicted to the Internet as a percentage of a country. The survey was conducted online by Ipsos, a Paris-based global market research firm, at the end of 2016, among 17,160 adults in the 23 countries with the most Internet users.

As it turns out, India is in one. In this country, 72% of Internet users are severely addicted to the Internet. They said they can't live without using the internet.

In second place is Britain and South Africa. In both countries, 8 percent of Internet users live without a web.

Chin four. 6 percent. America is at number eight on the list. 63 percent. Germany and Brazil have the same ranking. At the very end of the list, that is, Mexico is at number 23. That number is 50 percent. On average, in all 23 countries of the world, the percentage is around 70.

No doubt, the Internet is the most powerful weapon in the world right now. We all know that future wars will be cyber wars. Whose computer will catch as much 'intelligence', they will bet. As soon as their computers are able to capture the market pattern by analyzing the big data, they will have the last laugh in the trade war. And that's exactly what happened.

The fight has begun. Who can build an 'intelligent' computer first ...


From analog to digital

From the analog age to the digital age, we are proud. The days of tapes, cassettes, record players, and even CD-DVDs are over. The habit of reading books and papers is declining, after which the idea is that it will decrease rapidly. With the advent of digital media like smartphones, Kindle, Epub, Mobi, people's reading habits have already changed drastically.

Is it good or bad? Putting aside the question of all these principles, it can be said that it was inevitable.

Why? In order to find the answer, we have to touch the old woman of history.

Huge changes began to take place in human life a little before 1800 AD. In 184 the steam-powered train came and gave impetus to the first industrial revolution. The first power loom was the emergence of the educated and uneducated working class. Capitalism raised its head. Only one percent of the world's people began to accumulate almost all the world's wealth.

In 180, all calculations of electric energy changed again. The change began to happen more quickly. In Charlie Chaplin's movie, we see the first assembly belt conveyor. From that time the appearance of the factory began to get bigger.

Almost 100 years later, in the early 1970s, electronics and IT communications led to the Third Industrial Revolution. We first got the logic controller. Computer. Again all calculations began to change.

Another thing happened. The speed of this change, however, suddenly increased. Because, not only can computers calculate much faster than humans, computers also began to do a lot of human work. As a result, intelligent, creative people have more time to think. Retired to invent something new.

As a result, we do not have to wait another 100 years for the fourth industrial revolution. Hopefully, the Internet of Things (IoT) will be real in 10 to 15 years. One instrument will be able to talk directly to another instrument, will also be able to think, now for what people need, Setukur will no longer be needed.


When the Internet is no longer human

It is estimated that within the next ten years, there will be no more than 40 to 60 million different types of work. Will fly in the air.

The way Mixi ended the day of Shil Nora, the way workers will lose their jobs in different workplaces. As a replacement for this, the type of work will have to be completely changed to about 40 crore manpower. How many can adapt to this change? Wouldn’t that huge chunk of those who can’t, give birth to huge instability in society?

Hopefully, the Internet is still the most powerful medium in the world, now called a weapon. What we are still seeing is called the Internet of People. It has no owner, so this Internet of People can challenge capitalism.

But the worry is that what has been man-made for so long is going to become the Internet of Things in the next ten years. In other words, robots, various types of devices, or instruments are going to take the place of human beings. They will decide then. Because big companies are going to give them ‘artificial intelligence’. Because, they know, this internet in the hands of ordinary educated people can become their own death at some point. Capitalists know that what Karl Marx could not do, these technologists can do. These computer scientists can use technology only for the good of the common man, without using it for business and war. This is not good news for free-market advocates, ever.

Scientists like Stephen Hawking have said, perhaps for that reason, before death, do not give the device intelligence in this way. Think before you do. Think more. "Use technology for the needs of ordinary people instead of killing people," he said.

Stephen Hawking has questioned the control of ‘artificial intelligence’ for the rest of his life. Because, he knew, the highest level of the industrial revolution that was about to come could be the last industrial revolution in the history of the world. If it only becomes greed-driven.

Because of the growth of this impending industrial revolution will become exponential. In all previous industrial revolutions, this growth rate was like multiplying two by 10. Now it has become like putting 10 in the head of two. The difference is between heaven and hell. If we get 20 from the first, then the value of the second is 1024. The point is, artificial intelligence can destroy the whole world in an instant if it wants to. He will have intellect, but he will not have a sense of principle. They can make as many devices as they want using technology like 3D printers. They may even start a war among themselves. There is no doubt that the matter will get out of the control of the people.

If it is not done thoughtfully, then it will only be driven by market-driven greed.

How ready are we?

How ready are we for the Internet of the future? The bigger question is, what are we going to leave for the next generation?

Adults will use the Internet judiciously, it is to be expected. It is up to them to decide how much they will use the Internet, how much they will use to study, or how much time they will spend watching pornography. But kids? 6 to 12-year-olds? The thought is about them. It turns out that by 2020, at least 400 million children will be at risk through the Internet. This impending danger is being identified as a cyber epidemic.

There are several urgent questions.

Can a man-made government control this unhealthy competition of big companies in the market and use technology only for the good of the people? Or, will they take this opportunity to establish more surveillance over the common man?

Snowden is not alone in the United States, and one after another, former FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) and NSA (National Security Agency) staff and computer scientists have begun to open their mouths against the secret surveillance of the US government. William Beanie is one of those people who, after working with the NSA for a long time, has revealed how these American intelligence agencies are becoming the regulators of everything, just by getting government clearance to misuse technology.

So one mountain of questions after another about the future of the Internet and its addiction.

In the future technology, the Internet is going to control us? As artificial intelligence, is this digital-addiction being created artificially, in a planned way? Is it going to rate all previous drugs? Will we die of greed this time for a little data? There is no indication that the poor have benefited so quickly from previous industrial revolutions, that the poor have received an equal share of natural resources. The pockets of the rich are full.

Is that why he is in such a hurry for the fourth industrial revolution? Is it the tricks of the high-powered people behind it? Or is this really huge change going to give some new direction? Let's see.

And the answer will be found within a decade.
