FIFTH Generation War

In the next war, information or data will be the new oil, and perhaps the next war will be without bloodshed.

The attack would probably hit the country's satellites, which would destroy the country's telecommunications system. The country will go back at least a few decades. The more the country progresses, the more substnace the country has to lose in war.

It means, if there is a war, the damage is greater. The threat to the US, Russia, China, India, Germany is at this level. So the next war will now be played at the level of technology. If the lights in that country were to be switched off for hours rather than to drop a bomb on a city, the wailing would be greater. What exactly is China doing on this front and at the level of technology, China v. US and India v. The conflict in China is beyond our comprehension.

One thing is jokingly said about China. 'the made in china will go till the moon or till the evening'. That is, the wall made by China is visible from the moon. Chinese-made satellites go into space. But at the same time, Chinese-made goods are spoiled until they are brought home from market. China's hardware technology is unprecedented.

But the reason for bringing this issue here is that no matter how much China is cursed during the Corona era, the unprecedented technological advancement that China has shown is unmatched. China has done all this through big data and artificial intelligence.

As computers began to be used to create different information processing applications, and as their complexity increased, so did the need to speed up the process. And from that came the ‘relational database’.

But as this data grew, so did the complexity of getting the information we needed to process it. Then it was necessary to increase the computing capacity of the computer.

For example, when the army of hundreds of computers was not enough to process the huge data coming from different messenger satellites, the invention of the ‘supercomputer’ was made to process that huge amount of data. But not everyone could afford a supercomputer.

But as computers and the Internet became part of our lives, literally millions of terabytes of data began to be stored in different data centers. Facebook has billions of registered members worldwide. They are all constantly updating their status on Facebook.

There are 400 million tweets on Twitter in a day, with videos uploading up to 60 hours per minute on YouTube. At the same time, it regularly records the movements of Google users. Now the data of these billions of users is just as huge. In addition, Amazon is the marketplace for Flipkart and ecommerce.

Millions of bloggers around the world write on their blogs every minute on different topics. Satellites orbiting the earth and growing every year take different information, photographs of the earth's atmosphere every second and store them. So, this huge digital data generated from this information explosion is called 'Big Data'. 

Artificial intelligence means that the technology that has been created is becoming more and more automated and things are moving forward in their own way. Artificial intelligence is a confluence of disciplines such as computer science, statistics, language, philosophy and psychology. Many concepts of statistics are mainly used in it today. Machine learning is used to put artificial intelligence into practice; Instead of giving instructions directly to the computer, it provides information, which the computer can study, make decisions, and analyze whatever it wants. So using all this, China kept a close eye on its citizens. The government could easily keep an eye on everyone it met, not just the citizens. Drone cameras were used to disguise people wearing simple masks. 

If a citizen went to an office without it, it would be easy to find out who and where he had met in the last fourteen days. It was easy to record the movements of a sick person. Digital financial transactions have made it easier to identify where the person went and how they paid for it. This is called contract tracing. The man came out of the house and his face was captured on CCTV. What is the capacity of a single camera to store photos? That's enough to store 30 crore photos. The government forced some apps on people. 

The government kept an eye on the movements and chatter of the people. In addition, people were given QR codes which were 1) asymptomatic, 2) asymptomatic but traveling abroad and 3) symptomatic. The code changes according to human symptoms. And it was not the Chinese national government that took the initiative to do all this, but the trick of the local self-government body in Wuhan. The whole range is literally staggering. If those CCTV cameras are made in China, we can’t even imagine Chinese technology. 

The United States objected. The objection here is not to the technology or its capabilities. There is nothing wrong with that. The reason is hidden in the Chinese system.
In China, government is often under government control.
And if that company has a problem with the world, then China is not shying away from saying that the company is private. The United States has contracted Huawei to install CCTV in their country, and China's fortunes seem to be on the line.

But soon the United States was accused of spying on China, and a different case arose. The use of the above Chinese technology is well known. The words Big Data or Artificial Intelligence are now well known.

So using them, China can hold huge amounts of information in its hands and make it happen. This is fear. And this fear is real.

Now the US government is putting pressure on Beijing's overseas 5G ambitions by offering economic incentives and other incentives to countries willing to cut ties with China-made telecom companies.

The American Foreign Trade Association is developing workshops and a handbook. This will help rulers in developing countries like Central and Eastern Europe and elsewhere to build 5G cellular networks that do not use equipment from Huawei Technologies and China's ZTE Corporation.

Evidence is being given of how Britain used FiveG technology without China, and countries like the G7 are expected to do the same. Many countries may not be able to afford other options as China will provide this 5G technology very cheaply.

So whether it's Finland's Nokia, South Korea's Samsung or Sweden's Ericsson, the US is now lending to developing countries to buy some of the most expensive equipment. With the exception of Germany, the G7 is backed by the United States.

Poland has backed this by accusing a Huawei official of spying. Members of the US Congress have largely supported the policy as a bill.

India is certainly not poor enough to bow to China. That's the decent thing to do, and it should end there.
