Webinar — From Australia to Sudan, Localization of Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things

Very soon, All Things Around Us Will be Controlled by the Internet of Things

Report by: Haffiya Abdalla

Very few technologies are as exciting or important as artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things. But do we need the AIoT—the artificial intelligence of things?

Over 10 billion Internet of Things (IoT) devices already surrounds us in our everyday lives. Its extraordinary growth will be further accelerated by the rollout of 5G—Business Insider believes that there will be more than 64 billion IoT devices worldwide by 2025.

Alongside the growth of the IoT, artificial intelligence (AI) has emerged as the next technology phenomenon

Artificial Intelligence deals with the creation of systems that can learn to emulate human tasks using their prior experience and without any manual intervention. (Basically Intelligent Systems!). Internet of Things, on the other hand, is a network of various devices that are connected over the internet and they can collect and exchange data with each other.

Dr. Atif Abdelmageed Abdelrahman Ahmed. Sudanese public Figure, CEO of ARTDO International said “We were very pleased with ARTDO International to organize a webinar, in cooperation with the Technical Scout Group in Gezira State in Sudan, where an initiative was presented by the CEO of the International Foundation for Training and Development to localize artificial intelligence technology and the Internet of things based on the STEMSEL system, which was developed by the Australian scientist Beng Shu and engineer Miroslav.

Artificial intelligence (AI) has emerged as the next technology phenomenon.

Thinking about the STEMSEL system began after the tragic accident that occurred in the city of Adelaide, South Australia at the end of 2008 when it was reported that a 15-year-old refugee boy from Sudan, Daniel Oak, had been stabbed to death in a fight with another Sudanese refugee boy of the same age. In one of the computer games clubs Cybers Computer in a town Australian Adelaide.

The incident was heartbreaking, but inspiring Dr. Peng Xiu to think of an alternative that satisfies the desires of these youngsters, but away from violence and controlling the minds of young people, as is happening now in the Blue Whale game, through which Sudan recently lost a 10-year-old child, but this time in Germany. Dr. Eng. Peng Xiu, in cooperation with his colleague, engineer Miroslav, establishing the Africa Center for Training on Microchips, to involve refugee youth in programming microchips and including them in a group of inventions such as talking robots, refrigerator alarm system, and street lighting dimming to keep them safe. Energy, Self-Cooling Helicopter and Smart Farms.

The project was presented at the Royal Adelaide Fair by students and young adults and after judging by experts in the fields of STEM.

The project was supported by the Governor of South Australia and the Director of Immigration to solve the problems of refugees in Australia, especially those who are addicted to computer games.

At that time, the project name was changed to the STEMSEL Initiative for Social Good Projects. The STEMSEL is the initials of the sentence: Science Technology Engineering Maths Social Enterprise Learning. It stands for STEM and Institutional Social Education, an initiative for social good projects.

The initiative began in cooperation with the Sudanese technical scouts in the capital of Gezira State in the International Conference Hall of Gezira University (Al-Razi Complex). Where the attendance was qualitatively more than a hundred scouts and leaders of the scout movement in the Gezira State and official the State’s Government.

Dr. Atef Abdel Mageed, explained the importance of the initiative, its dimensions, and applications, and translated and commented on the speakers’ interventions.

Dr. Beng Xiu spoke about the damages of video games that incite violence and mentioned several incidents related to this matter. He also said that he believes that video game addiction, which has increased significantly during the Corona pandemic, is worse than drug addiction. Scientific experiments show that a 5-year-old child has a creativity rate of 98% when he reaches 10 years, it drops to 30%, and when he reaches 15 years, it drops to 12.5%, and when he reaches the stage of entering university, it drops to 2% because of the focus on memorization and indoctrination in schools. Although creativity decreases, it does not fade, it can be restored by developing teaching methods, developing curricula, avoiding memorization and indoctrination, and relying on sharpening memory. Intelligence is summoned and preserved through creative thinking, the initiation of the most effective alternatives, and the use of appropriate technology.

A group of young people who benefited from the STEMSEL program participated in the session to provide practical models for the Children of Sudan, where everyone was impressed by the positive interventions of the Cameroonian child George, who talked about the sterile education system and its disadvantages compared to technical education that maximizes innovation and creativity. There was participation from Malaysia (Zavier Gu) and Bangladesh (Rufaida) and Queensland Australia and other countries.

From Sudan, the guide, Rawan Mohamed Abdel Moneim, participated and was able, through the guidance of Engineer Miroslav and Dr. Atif Abdel Majeed, to write a set of software codes on her computer in Wad Medani, Sudan, and through it, she was able to control a drone located in Adelaide, South Australia, and controlled the take-off and altitude. And move, spin and somersault and then land safely. During the session, the various peaceful benefits that can be achieved through the drone were discussed.

Questions were opened for participants from different groups and leadership stages, and the new technology was safe, peaceful, simple, and inexpensive and could be easily resettled in Sudan. Dr. Atef Abdul Mageed committed to providing some units of the eLabtronics STEMSEL Inventors Tool Kits system for technical scouts. The President of the International Foundation for Training and Development, Chairman Emeritus, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Malaysian Center for Training and Development MITD, and the current Chairman of the ARTDO President and Development Board participated in the attendance, via Zoom. Head of the Sudanese Scouts in the Gulf States.

The Internet of Things using artificial intelligence has become a very important issue. Very soon, all things around us will be controlled by the Internet of Things, and those who do not keep pace will be left behind and expelled from the labor market. So far, we still use in our daily lives a small part of the Internet of Things by simulating and replicating human minds and their intelligence through machines programmed to think like humans and imitate their actions to achieve specific goals. On the other hand, the wide part is still only available through Science Fiction Movies, and artificial intelligence will remain an extension of human capabilities and not a substitute for humans Dr. Atif said.
