 Government to provide free internet to students for online classes!


The government has provided free internet for students. The Ministry of Education, Science and Technology has made an arrangement to provide free internet to students and schools from next September to facilitate learning.


The Student Learning Facilitation Guide mentions the issue of providing free internet to students and schools under the role of the Ministry of Education. The guideline states that the data packages will be provided free of cost to the schools and students by getting free or concessional fees from the internet service providers including Nepal Telecom for educational purposes only.


It is mentioned in the guideline that such data and internet will be made available only for educational purposes.


The information issued for the implementation of the directive states that the government at all three levels should implement the directive in order to achieve the learning achievements specified in the national curriculum format and to create an environment conducive to learning for school-age children.


The ministry said free internet was needed after schools and students complained that online classes were affected by the high cost of internet.

And that is the end of the topic: Government to provide free internet to students for online classes!

Artificial Intelligence(AI)

Published

on

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a wide-ranging branch of computer science concerned with building smart machines capable of performing tasks that typically require human intelligence. AI is an interdisciplinary science with multiple approaches, but advancements in machine learning and deep learning are creating a paradigm shift in virtually every sector of the tech industry.  “AI is a computer system able to perform tasks that ordinarily require human intelligence. Many of these artificial intelligence systems are powered by machine learning, some of them are powered by deep learning and some of them are powered by very boring things like rules.”

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE EXAMPLES

  • Smart assistants (like Siri and Alexa)
  • Disease mapping and prediction tools
  • Manufacturing and drone robots
  • Optimized, personalized healthcare treatment recommendations
  • Conversational bots for marketing and customer service
  • Robo-advisors for stock trading
  • Spam filters on email
  • Social media monitoring tools for dangerous content or false news
  • Song or TV show recommendations from Spotify and Netflix

Artificial intelligence generally falls under two broad categories:

1.Narrow Artificial Intelligence:-

Narrow AI is all around us and is easily the most successful realization of artificial intelligence to date. With its focus on performing specific tasks, Narrow AI has experienced numerous breakthroughs in the last decade that have had “significant societal benefits and have contributed to the economic vitality of the nation,” according to “Preparing for the Future of Artificial Intelligence,” a 2016 report released by the Obama Administration. 

A few examples of Narrow AI include: 

  • Google search
  • Image recognition software
  • Siri, Alexa and other personal assistants
  • Self-driving cars
  • IBM’s Watson 

2.Artificial General Intelligence:-

The creation of a machine with human-level intelligence that can be applied to any task is the Holy Grail for many AI researchers, but the quest for AGI has been fraught with difficulty. AGI has long been the muse of dystopian science fiction, in which super-intelligent robots overrun humanity, but experts agree it’s not something we need to worry about anytime.

The virtual digital assistants have changed the way w do our daily tasks. Alexa and Siri have become like real humans we interact with each day for our every small and big need. The natural language abilities and the ability to learn themselves without human interference are the reasons they are developing so fast and becoming just like humans in their interaction only more intelligent and faster. AI makes every process better, faster, and more accurate. It has some very crucial applications too such as identifying and predicting fraudulent transactions, faster and accurate credit scoring, and automating manually intense data management practices. Artificial Intelligence improves the existing process across industries and applications and also helps in developing new solutions to problems that are overwhelming to deal with manually.

Update of Internet service to 5G(NTC)

Published

on

Last year MoCIT had directed Nepal Telecom to include 4 cities for a 5G trail in its 4G deal. We suppose they already made a provision on the 5G part being in line with the directives from MoCIT.  Finally, Nepal Telecom is starting a Feasibility study of 5G Technology in Big cities of Nepal soon. Telecom will test this super-fast network in Kathmandu, Pokhara, Biratnagar & Birgunj in the first phase.

Although people have started speculating the 5G network in Nepal, it seems to be a very early stage as the regular NTA had no preparations for assigning the 5G spectrum band, one of the key requirements to roll out 5G. There are beliefs that Nepal cannot afford 5G for now due to the huge investment. Similarly, some people opine that the country is not ready for 5G due to the limitation of its uses. Some even go further to say Nepal does not 5G at all for 5 years. But as people blame telecom companies to bring 4G late here in Nepal, it is high time that we start discussing 5G. The time has come for the whole telecom industry in Nepal including telecom companies, vendors and the regulator prepare well in advance for the 5G network, including the allocation of 5G spectrum band.
In the present time, many mobile phones are launch with the support feature of the fastest internet service which is 5G in Nepal also. So, to use the feature of 5G Nepal telecom bring the 5G service in it. At first, it tries in 4 cities then it boosts its service all the cities of Nepal.

 Telecom and Internet services in the epidemic: a disaster & an opportunity


The Internet and the telecommunications sector are always busy, while COVID-19 is having a devastating effect on everyone. During this period, some are facing high pressure of service consumption. Some people are trying to make new customers while others are losing existing customers.


Many service providers have not been able to provide services to the customers due to supply problems including fiber, devices, recharge cards and there is also a problem in expanding new customers. There are many complaints from the service recipients due to lack of quality service. Covid has created both problems and opportunities for service providers.


Meanwhile, in a virtual interaction organized by the Economic Journalists’ Society on Thursday, participants talked about the aftermath and opportunities of COVID-19. Due to the global spread of COVID-19, the use of internet is also increasing in Nepal. The trend of data consumption has also changed as compared to the previous lockdown and now it is time to provide services to the citizens through electronic system by increasing investment in content along with connectivity.

“Internet is the only way to get information on new areas like e-learning, virtual meetings, study materials, entertainment,” said Sarakarwala. Director of the Nepal Telecommunications Authority, Vijay Kumar Roy, said that some online outlets were shut down in collaboration with the Press Council, the cyber directive was implemented and the NEA worked on an e-education package.


He feels that due to the activism of the service providers during the time of COVID-19, the complaints of the customers have not come as expected. Due to COVID-19, data consumption has increased tremendously in urban areas and connectivity problems in rural areas have also raised fears that the problem of digital divide will increase.


Rural telecommunications expert Pawan Shakya said the condition of both connectivity and content in the village was worse than in the city. There is an opportunity to choose a service in the city, there is a lot of people who can find and understand even in content. He said that the focus should now be on the rural areas. He also urged the people to be vigilant as the digital divi

de in rural and urban areas would become bigger in the future if the rural areas were not addressed.
