Connected Life Loop

I strongly believe that technology and innovation can solve many basic issues related with sufferings of mankind.

ITU should promote "Connected Life loop", to integrate life saving information.
Health, education,women empowerment, catastrophe response center etc using vast Telecommunication network infrastructure.

A rapid and timely delivered "Notification" can save thousands of life in a remote area in the time of catastrophic events.

A connected school in a rural and remote village can learn and share knowledge with a modern and advance school in the city.

A breakout of disease information timely alerted in remote connected health center with cure advise.

These are small examples of "Connected Life Loop"

Are you aware of the mandate of the ITU?

Yes

List three key ways your life and activities are affected by information and communication technologies

- updates around the globe in seconds
-well organized and connected
-Direct access to information

What trends in information and communication technologies should ITU consider while planning its strategy?

-Convergence of technologies
-Promoting open platforms
-security, as hacking would tremendously increase

What would be the main areas and opportunities for improvement of the ITU?

-Reach out to digitally divided regions
-bring industry and academia together
-Work more closely to empower women in technolgy

What are the top three achievements you would like to see the ITU accomplish in the 2016-2019 timeframe?

Communication and Technology Convergence should be the key...great idea......no one should get left behind....technology enhancement should be available to everyone regardless of race, religion and living status....

With the advent of ITU Strategic Plan for 2016-2019, Arshad Daniel's views also echoed our thoughts on this matter. I believe that convergence of technology and communications should not be limited on the urban areas, but also on the rural areas. Wherein most help should be needed in time of calamities, education, peace and order situation and other communication related needs.

I know a great man once said, "if there is no knowledge there is no power", and also with uncle Ben " with great power comes with great responsibility". With our advance technologies today, we should take advantage of some brilliant ideas like this that we can use to be connected and informed of what’s happening around us not just in the metro but specially in some rural areas. With this great idea we know that we can save lives with a simple information transmitted through the use of technology.. We should not overlook the possibility of using this in the near future. Cheers! =)
