This is a short story of Rima. Rima a sincere female at work. There may be lot of women like her – what they call “hormonal” . Yes, she has Pre-Mensural Syndrome too and it effects her work efficiency too. Apart from her efficiency varying on weekly basis. Though she manages the ups and downs by working extra on one day of a week and few hours lesser on another day of the week. But is this expected in a what I would call a “robotic” kind of work culture I perceive it as. Daily scrum meeting, hourly status reporting. Yes, work status is important. But women, at least those who needs one full day leave if Rima get her periods on a working day. It pains her a lot! And Rima can’t think of work when its that time of the month, at least for a day. Well, Rima have passed this Stage through motherhood. Which showered myriad of such issues to her. Now, Rima after managing her mensural age is in menopause age. Life is even more tougher. Why was she was asked the question “Are you hormonal?” “Are you in menopause” in an interview. If it was to help her-good going! Women of all kinds should be given opportunities. If some females are given pains and a different kind of sensitivity, that should be accepted in society and not looked down at. Why is it not acknowledged? And looked down at with big eyes! Why menopausal women not given flexibility to work? And women in younger ages given weekly targets and not daily target for flexible working, unless urgent? Same for women in menopause. Women whether “hormonal” or not should be given equal rights to work and support to cope up with what all is going on in body! And women do really good work, that too sincerely! Why it is not accepted as a true fact in society and a need for change ? To look at it from a altogether different point of view!
If I am heart you will be my beats
If I am heart
You were my beats
Not any more
For this heart
Can work without you now
If I am her
You were my he
Not anymore I need any he
For you were my breaths
And I have learned to live without breathing
If I am a flower
You were my scent
Not anymore though
For I can bosom without the bees too
If I was a moon
You were my Sun
I don’t need a Sun anymore
For, I have learnt to shine on my own now
If I am present
You were my past
For I am moving to future not past
Come on and meet me in future
Walk out of past
To the future
If I am heart how long can I work without beats!
If I were flower, I need by scent back, my bees back
If I am Moon I need my SUn back
If I am her, you are my him
Bring back my breaths in the future!

Ethical Artificial Intelligence (AI) : Find solutions to avoid problems in AI ! Let them complete the electric bulb- to see clearly in the darkness of Data !
What is imperative is right versus wrong! Not about researchers confused in what is ethical AI and what is not. Yes, you can think and write about it as much as you like. But Ethical AI, as you say it means doing the right things and debarring from wrong things! But even a man with enough experience in authoring books can tell whether the benefits outweighs the temporary side effects ! How ??? As he have enough intelligence, though not artificial intelligence ! Focus your energies in right things, the stakeholders are there to guide you for a purpose. Don’t stop the electric bulb from being invented by figuring out the problems in its use for underground illegal mining of diamonds, look for benefits and leave rest on stakeholders – the inceptors! Belief and trust, are the key in any business. Any business be it an academic institute runs on these two factors. Let the Stakeholders take hold of the task. And if you think there are way too many problems—-We need solutions – not cribbing’s—all without disturbing the making of the new electric bulb- to see clearly in the darkness of Data !
Rights things are as right as the agreement one takes while joining a duty in say medicine or police, an oath to do right things till the end of time of duty! So, what is this right and what is wrong! Well, anything against welfare of majority is wrong while work to be focused for welfare of the residents of Earth, be it animals, be it humans, birds, trees, flowers, insects…….(yes, it is well said man is a evolution of monkey) !
It is for a greater vision and greater goal that we should strive Ethical AI in, and not in small petty things, which can be handled by solutions ! Solutions to track editing’s done in AI! These are all hacks to scare people from AI ! AI has much good to give to humans than bad! Oh yes, perhaps the stakeholders know how to use the remote controls of AI ! And, I believe we have studied AI hard to know the right from the wrong, researched well in AI to understand the depths and breaths of the subject ! More than that its impact! And gain the maturity of grasping the side effects of any wrong tools of AI.
I would like to express through this short article. Not to spread panics about AI among people ! And only thing I would like to say is provide solutions to the problem’s dear researchers of AI, CSE !
Solutions to tackle the problems you think AI can pose. You can mail me if you find it difficult to find solution to the “so called threats of AI”! Everything has a solution! Only thing is to stop cribbing and finding it! And these have to be found, since AI was a dream of Man, for a better world, even when huge data on which it is used today was not pilled up on papers, disks and web! Hence all the problems can be sort out—you are a researcher, find a solution to sort it out! While, data authenticity problem a researcher today spoke of in an international channel! What’s the problem with that—-this is not an Ethical AI problem! This is a research problem! Just think! Ethical AI — I will give you an example—- “a robot trained to help someone guide way——took control of his car and took it off” —————–This is a problem of Ethical AI———! A threat to humans! A wrong and any such wrongs and rights are easily distinguishable by a learned human (any profession) ! Once again data on which training is done, personal data (permissions are asked to use data, you can deny anytime), and other things, ——-don’t pose threat to man at large—though there are personal losses to a fraction of celebrated people––as thy are mostly looked in awe and subject to most agony—These are problems to be solved and people need its solutions——! Not problems to be scared of and hue about! In short I would say—- Focus on Big Issues that are real threats ! For smaller problems which may be big to someone—-you have to find solutions! How—-! I can let you know ! But just think ! You are researchers yourselves! So we need solutions to problems which are there in AI – Guys get ready to find solutions not altogether quitting what the vision of Man was once——not what needs to be done and what not — but how to do it managing the side effects coming in the way ! And ethical and non-ethical a learned person can tell!
I will give you an example. When coal was first used as a source of energy everyone knew it is emitting harmful gasses in environment, but had man stopped there, we wont have had a developed world rather mud filled un-bricked communities. Yes, climate change is here, but there are solutions to everything. There are solutions to this problem to. Hence same with AI – find solutions! Try and you will find.
Online Health of Mankind-Online Health Trial – To a machine-read by a machine-not to a human!
In this article I want to present to you my ideas on a new software I am planning to develop viz. Online health of Mankind–based on volunteers who would like to volunteer for this task to predict future problems, even the extents of next spikes in a harmless disease to life threating problems. We, on Earth, have seen that a virus halted all of our lives. And we have to be future ready for not just a virus, just be anything, any medical or even societal problem. The software I am working on does the same. For that we would need some volunteers to engage in “online clinical trials”, no inputs would be needed from them. Just day to day workings. And all that data will go to machine, neither I nor my co-researchers would ever look into your day to day data. Just the machines would guide us like a weather monitoring system as “the human or our kids” key areas of interests to keep the mankind alert for any problems of future. Who know what — but COVID has taught us to be prepared! Its totally your wish to participate in it or not which is my installing this software tool in your device !
We are living in a new world—It all started few decades back. The Online World will continue to exists in our lives whether we agree with it or not, whether you like it or not. This is the new reality. This online world has become a necessity for us as a daily part of our lives. It is a small parallel world we live in and I say can be rightly called “Parallel Online Universe” . Yes, this is a full Universe on its own! And Yes we all live parallelly in our online presence on World Wide Web -WWW ! Oh yes, but this is not completely what we are, just the way we need and consume things are perpetrated in our daily lives much easily through Internet and now we are all used to it. Lest, we never though, before entering this world, that we need security guards there in and thefts are possible in online Internet life too! Aalas, all we saw was Use, Use and Use of being Online! if WWW has to give you so much comfort, friends, shopping’s, news, sports, entertainments and what not to mention here ! Everything in virtual world –and here you rub your mouse to call in the Internet Jinny! And just tell it — I want to watch a online live music concert. “Your wish my command” says the Jinny!
Well Well Well ! There are so many uses of internet! And yes, there are thieves too. But my today’s article is focused on Online Data and its respect, values, authenticity, purpose and use to society while making sure privacy is retained and maintained to the levels allowed by a particular citizen of Online Universe! Yes, Dear ladies and gentlemen – This online world where plethora of our data is shared is new, so is the people’s understandings – trying to figure out rules of what is right and what is wrong. I will explain this with an example, Corona is going on Earth, drugs were to be made ready to tackle it. The pharmaceutical companies of whatever extent wanted to heal mankind. But they had to do some testing on humans for that. Yes, you may not like to volunteer for a noble cause to test a drug which had already been made very deliberately and prior to that had been tested on animals. AND all was fine with the drug inventors. But what about human testing? Oh, you don’t want to get it done on you! That is ok—But your NO to clinical trial wont mean NO by everyone for clinical trials ! Right ! So, if some one is ready to do clinical trial of a new drug well tested by scientists on all parameters—they respect your “No” and they wont ask you and neither ask you for a reason. But there are folks who want to do what ever they can do for mankind welfare—and go in for human trials—-! Not for money but for mankind.
In the same way—If you don’t want to share your internet online data, such as links you clicked and your eating habits—you would be respected–! And your choice should be respected. But to tell you all major companies do ask your permissions! And if he like to share his preferences for data analytics, its his right to do so. Your independent voice cant stop him. Online data trials are needed for a healthy Online Universe ! Just like clinical trials are needed! If its your right to say “NO” to online trials, some need their voice too to say “YES” too. If you think your personal data would be leaked to a machine doing analytics and you are afraid of it. Some do say we are not afraid as we are not doing anything wrong or some are too open about their personal data—that they even write on their Twitter accounts—this is my after bath pic, now I am going to movie—That too with public view on. So, for some there is nothing to hide on in personnel data as to them it hardly matters if a machine does some algorithmic predictions based on it. No human is reading it for sure !!!!! Guaranteed! So to whom a data is leaked to –A Machine! Its ok if you don’t want a machine to know your preferences, but some are too ok—-that it’s a machine doing a job for a better Online Working of WWW Universe-a parallel world we all live in. And they may like to participate in Online data analytics trials too. These people should have a voice too!
Now I want to express why online data trials are needed for a even 1% of sample size of population of users and what are its uses. We all know we are in Pandemic, which is not ending and, its already more than a year. Ever thought of how it is affecting our lives. How we have changed and molded ourselves not only in working, but also in listening to songs, our movie tastes, to mention a few. What if some folks want to contribute to where the best creature on Earth viz Man is going online? Is it not important from scientific and medicinal purpose, for we want to predict if mankind is entering a depression pandemic? or are people anxious of something? or our kids too much into horrors stories-which should not happen, or is it that too many people from sample are involved in reading blogs about change in governments, or may be lot of people in the online trials asking for second marriage and not getting a right mate ? These are serious problems! Oh, yes what if our children start searching – alcohol online! Yes they would for sure not liked to be tracked by machines, but parents would set their privacy permissions! Not them! And we care for the future of our children and would not like to support even teenage pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. These are just some of the many reasons why parents would allow—–altleast some for their non-adult children privacy data to be tracked. How else can the machines find out about internet data theft when they click to buy a thing not meant for them. Its ok for parents and teachers to handle it. But this contribution is for the health of mankind not just for some, on the expense of some people donating their personal data and their children personal data for online trials! All to be read and executed by machines! Which will give no personnel information but a summary of the data analytics and where the online world is going to— We hope we will find some online contributors even one family in few hundred families can help us to lead a happy online life and hence happy life on Earth! Think over it! If you believe in ethics, believe in mankind –believe in trust! This is the aim of my algorithm to detect “Online Health of mankind”— purely on basis of personal choice as its your personal data.
These are some of the many problems which if even 1% of the online users agree –to share can really help mankind in several predictions. Even next wave of pandemic, malaria outbreak, or even the overall health of a country, society and Earth as on whole can be measure by these small personal data sharing———-All On Donation Basis not on theft basis.
Well there are thefts also that happen online-so many unpopular applications and website do data thefts. Sell data and use it in wrong way. Hence, I just recommend you to use authentic applications and websites, which always ask you permissions for your clinical trials of online data—which is safe and secure way to donate some data for analysis by mankind!
I don’t know whether this is being implemented yet or not, but this is my vision and my mission. If some one wants to donate personal choices what is your problem to it. You can say no. If it had been my company, I wont interfere in it. And you would be free to do what you like. !
Happy Earths Day- Let NATURE BE NATURAL , Let Earth BE MORE Natural !
Earth has is been though a lot with and without humans since its creation and existence. Be it acid rains that marked a start to all the major processes or be it the ice age! It has gone through several turmoil’s and still retain self equilibrium of the essential atmospheric, seismical, polar, geographical, biological processes, to mention a few, to the required levels, if not the best levels.
Not just industry emissions you have to focus on dear Leaders! What about cost of taking raw materials from beneath the earth crust? Is the mobile I use, is this its actual cost ? What is its cost to Earth ? How can we calculate its cost? Find parameters! Else I will let you know in my upcoming articles! How to find actual costs. What people see are visible effects on dear Mother Earth, viz. rise in temperature, pollution and ice melting on Earth making seal levels high. See invisible effects too—-earthquakes, volcanoes, un-necessary cyclones, hurricanes, flash flooding’s, thy are all saying something. Yes, climate change, and what about the permanent changes we are doing below earth crust–by over- mining– What is the limit on mining? Did you check seismic layers before giving permission to mine? Or is it just coal and gold? No, my dear people- Look beyond it. Ecosystems! How will you measure loses to ecosystems and extinct species—the damage is unrecoverable. I will give you metrics to measures these losses and use of Mathematics and AI in upcoming articles.
#BE_NATURAL ! #BE_GREEN !
On this Earth Day, 2021, when we look at Earth and the changes to some of the factors mentioned above, in past 100 years and more precisely 70 years, major changes were made in:
- Our way of livings
- Our day to day needs
- The way we commute
- The way we communicate
- The way we gain information-be it informative or for entertainment
- The way we cook
- The way we eat
- The way we carry things—Yes its a reference to Plastic we use in everything today
- In one phrase “Almost Everything”
Compare living in age 70 years back. Not much of vehicles, no mobile phones, no networks, no plastic, no plethora of gadgets in houses, no 4G, no 2G either! , no microwaves & ovens, no air conditioners, fridges,………………………………..so on!
And what we had then?? Birds lots of them singing, plants everywhere in our surroundings, Cattles nearby, fresh milk, fresh butter, fresh flour, fresh and cheap vegetables easily available in neighborhoods. Why so many pesticides, why not set some standards ? Why not use AI based learnings ? Where have birds gone from neighborhood? No trees, no green plants, and lot of cellular networks to disturb them in cities, I am not say mobile technology is not needed, the thing is finding right balance between human needs and birds, animals and insects needs too– they form an equal parts in ecosystem and give back a lot–to Earth and humans! Why most meditation audio recordings have nature sounds, birds chirping sounds? As they have healing effects! But now——real voices are replaced by audio——Is it the same ! Watching a Live Music Concert and watching on TV – Is it same ? Where are honey bees? When breaking a bee hive and eating fresh honey was so common. Who used to buy honey when every other tree around had bee hives. And we used to play with butterflies???? And present home grown flowers to our teachers every week. No! Yes, the average age of man has increased but so have the diseases. The present situation is a clear indication of the proofs of what I am saying. We have to take the best from the modernization but keeping track not to make irrepairable changes to our beloved planet!
Civilizations lived before as well. Sewage was then also and is not a new alian word in our dictionary, so why rivers and seas be allowed to accept sewages as in some part of world–even in good parts of world?? Or is in all our efforts we just focusing on making new cars, tech, robots and earn money and keep economy going without looking at side effects. How many car humans needs? Why existing cars cant be reused with attachable AI components and efficient fuels or batteries?? Do you know dismantling a car and creating a new car what if costs to Earth? To someone it must be few thousands of dollars, but what is the cost of a new gadget on and to Earth ?
Not just a car. I am asking you what is the cost of the following on Earth?
- A plastic bottle to store water: Oh yeah wooden or natural rubber is too costly, who will do hardwork with wooden bottles and who will grow so much of rubber, where concrete jungles can be made???
- A plastic boat?
- A plastic toys? Wooden toys take much longer to be made. But do you know so much wood is being burnt. One could have used it in constructive way and replantation could have been performed.
- Untreated Sewage flow in fresh and salty waters?
- Gasses emitted from equipment’s such as Fridge and air conditioners.
- A new gadget
- A new cellular tower
- Excess unground MINING!
Its not just green house effect that the world leaders have to reduce in by 2030! Well dear leaders look at- natural preserves, where are our ecosystems? Where are our plants, trees and flowers, where are our animals, the cats that used to come to our houses to steal milk from our kitchens, which our kids used to play with. Or we want our kids to live in a virtual worlds post CORONA times too ? Isn’t that too much.
Oh if you say, these thing are our bread and butter! Well then growing natural rubber, jute, silk(in an nature friendly way), wood, carpentry to produce daily use things from wood, would produce even more jobs than the current sources of employments of manufacturing non-earth friendly un-disposable stuffs. Can we calculate it ? How much employments would be produced ? It is just a way to change – Just a step. No change is ever welcomed by all easily, as humans as complacent with what they are doing and how things are happening. This is human nature. But it is a change in way we think, and gradual change in way things can change. And more employments would be produced for demand is high always for essential things. I am not asking one to replace plastic from medicinal procedures which needs it most of the times, till an alternative is discovered well in our research labs of chemistry departments!
We don’t need to go to aroma therapy to breathe in natural scents of flowers. Each community garden should be having natural aroma therapy via variety of flowers, plants and herbs growing there. Why we don’t see hens, rabbits, kittens in gardens now ? Do we need to go to far off zoos for them ? Why injections are given to make cows give more milk? Hens are given these too? And there was a article I read (I don’t know was it authentic or not ) that eating eggs of such hens can effect hormonal processes of young children–till than switch to organic eggs??? —- We cant avoid everything, but we can let NATURE BE NATURAL ! Let NATURE BE NATURAL , Let Earth BE MORE Natural ! That is what is my message on this World Earth Day!
I can provide you metrics of costs in upcoming blogs–It may take some time as I am busy with my own works too. Well it can be good industry project. I can guide you if you need.
