A note about Terminologies of New Technology

It is really interesting in the 1st session of the AI Policy conference. There was some debate with the definition of AI in the break time. So, I am wondering about do people really have common concepts with AI? What if they don't have any consensus with AI, should they continue to talk about trust and ethic AI policy?

There was a discussion on best practice forum of data and new technology last week in IGF 2020 to talk about some definition and those buzzwords. The moderator was Mr. Michael Nelson. He set a list of those new technology terms with what should they look like. I was impressed by the concept with "Data is the new air". But I heard about this from him in the another virtual meeting with Diplo Foundation research fellows.

There were some debates in Taiwan when people crazy for the AI solution. Some senior generations point out the concept of AI in automation or atomization solutions were popular in the last industrial revolution. So, what is a precise definition of AI (Artificial Intelligence)? Autonomous system? Algorithm? Machine learning? or others?

I met Mr. Don Tapscott in Taipei, 2017. He told me every imagination will be implemented with blockchain solutions. e.g., Artificial Intelligence or Machine Learning, Autonomous car, IoT, Robotic, FinTech. The concept is blockchain will be an internet infrastructure and every new technology can be deployed on the blockchain.

There is another research article with blockchain system and internet number resources by RIPE NCC: 'A Review of Blockchain Applicability to Internet Number Resources'. The other article is about Domain Name System with blockchain pocket address: 'Handshake, ENS and Decentralized Naming Services Explained'.

I still don't have enough time to get understand those articles above. I just take a note about some review about popular terms in the society.

I also post it in my LinkedIn.

But blockchain technology is not only in cryptocurrencies, the technology can be used in several ways.  The famous document “ Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Payment System ”(PDF) by Satoshi Nakamoto brings a new era of digital currencies and currencies policies in different countries. The technology has some famous features with it: decentralized, secure, anonymous, transparent, irreversible, and consensus. The concept also brings the evolution and revolution with electronic payment and affects some innovations.

We may lose our freedom of the Internet in the near future

I believe those internet pioneers invented the Internet and the World Wide Web is to empower citizens to get and share knowledge without physical and wealth boundaries at the beginning, everyone will be equal in the Internet world. People will  have the power to know, to express themselves with the power of the Internet. Then citizens may have the power to against unreasonable policies bye the power of the Internet. But 'empowerment' also means we need to be mature enough to take the responsibility, do self-regulation and management with the power. We can't always believe and depend on the government. If we put the responsibility back to the government, that means we give back the power to government. The Internet has some characters make it looks like a 'public goods', but it has never become a 'public goods.' Those pioneers argued this issues several years ago. We can see many people spread their hate speech by the social media and those big tech companies
