US FCC Chairman Ajit Pai says that emerging technologies of 2018 like artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, the blockchain and quantum computing will have a huge impact on the telecom industry. It is difficult for telecom regulator to develop and stand with these new technologies.
While speaking about the manner in which Google, Facebook and Twitter work Ajit Pai adds some improvements needed. He says that these platforms need to work in a more transparent way. Transparency will assist users with making better choices that will serve them in a vastly improved manner. “A conversation is needed. For example, what kind of algorithms are they using to determine what content is seen and what content is not seen when somebody does a Google search, how the Facebook feed is defined, when Twitter decides what accounts to suspend – what are the rules behind that,” he said.
Talking about India Mobile Congress (IMC) 2018 Ajit Pai discusses the ways to counter fake news using the emerging technology like blockchain. According to him, it’s not for the legislature who chooses news to be distributed. It is the responsibility of individuals to counter perspectives that they discover false or offensive. They should prevent them from entering the public square and counter those.
Blockchain technology could be used to minimize losses due to frauds. As the data on blockchain is encrypted and can be anonymized, customer data can be stored securely. Misuse of identity is one of the main tools used by scammers, as reported by BBNTimes. It also helps to secure Private Branch Exchange (PBX) systems of the organization. Thus, internal communication of the organizations can also be secured.
