Questions abound on safety risks amid the hope for normalcy

10 February 2021
IN what seems to be a race against Covid-19 — to execute effective measures to control and ultimately put an end to its devastating impacts faster than its spread — countries globally have started to vaccinate their citizens. Following this, proof of inoculation or immunity via a "vaccine passport", meant to assist border crossing without…

Robust digital strategy vital to tap halal industry potential

17 November 2020
THE 2021 Budget tabled recently covered various initiatives focusing on technology deployment and enhancement, aiming to boost competitiveness of local businesses, drive foreign investment as well as expedite Malaysia's transformation into a high-income economy. Given the growing role of technology and the increasing importance of its adoption, especially since the global pandemic struck, it is…

Digital surveillance: Privacy, data ecosystem and effectiveness

17 May 2020
By Dr Moonyati Yatid, Farlina Said and Tengku NurQistina The role of technology in aiding our daily lives has grown rapidly since the imposition of lockdowns in many countries amid the Covid-19 pandemic. In adapting to the new normal, e-commerce, e-learning and teleconferencing are flourishing. Technology is also utilised by governments to manage the spread of…

No easy roads to take even for e-commerce amid Covid-19

03 May 2020
After recording its first case of the novel coronavirus on January 25, 2020, and the bump in cases following the occurrence of the tabligh cluster in early March, Malaysia moved to flatten the curve by implementing the Movement Control Order (MCO) which restricted interstate travel, enforced physical distancing and allowed limited economic sectors to be opened, though it has…

Has the Pandemic Accelerated the Growth of Technology?

21 April 2020
The global health crisis has opened the door for a bigger role of technology, assisting efforts in fighting COVID-19 and helping citizens adapt to a new way of life. As opportunities unfold, technology – being a double-edged sword – is also acting as a conduit for those wanting to take advantage of the crisis. Moving…

Potential threats of technology amid the Covid-19 crisis

30 March 2020
When China first alerted the World Health Organisation (WHO) about the new coronavirus Covid-19 on December 31, 2019, it was already growing at an alarming rate. Wuhan, the centre of the epidemic, and soon the rest of China, struggled in the battle to fight the virus — as the world watched, and condemned the nation.…

Chance to accelerate growth

25 November 2019
ON the 70th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China last month, President Xi Jinping emphasised to its cheering crowd that “there is no force that can shake the foundation of this great nation”. Unsurprisingly, China’s confidence and “unstoppable” rise has caused frictions with the United States. The ongoing US-China tensions have continued for more…

Disinformation: Economic Loss and Short-run Gains

08 January 2019
Since the 2016 US Presidential Election, the term ‘fake news’ has come to the forefront. The Trump administration had widely used the poorly defined term to discredit journalists who do not share Trump’s political views. The catch-all term has been largely politicised not only by Trump but also many global leaders – over 20 global…

Telling the real from the fake

09 October 2018
DESCRIBED as “devastatingly handsome” and “every woman’s dream come true”, North Korea’s Kim Jong-un was named the sexiest man alive. Most would have realised that this report by The Onion was fictional, but a state-run Chinese newspaper, not realising so, has republished the news, along with a 55-page slideshow of the stout dictator. This may…
The trust deficit in AVs

The Trust Deficit in AVs

15 May 2018
Article by Dr Moonyati Mohd Yatid which appeared in New Straits Times, 15 May 2018 AS we welcome technology into our lives, so does the trust placed in them, whether we realise it or not. However, when it involves a high-stakes game, such as the Autonomous Vehicles (AV) technology, where the result of a software…
Your face as big data

Your Face as Big Data

13 March 2018
Years ago, spies, moles and secret agents using facial recognition glasses were only scenes in sci-fi films. Recently, it became reality when Chinese policemen started using them for surveillance, leading to a number of arrests including for kidnapping, hit-and-run as well as fake identification cases. The dark sunglasses, which are connected to a central database…
Big data for social recovery

Big Data for Social Recovery

20 February 2018
BIG Data drives marketing today. Global brands are realising big gains from Big Data analytics by influencing consumer behaviour. Amazon, one of the first companies to anticipate the potential of Big Data, proved it when its chief executive officer Jeff Bezos became the world’s richest person, after Amazon’s earnings report was recently made public. Forbes…

Rise of the machines: is Malaysia ready?

21 November 2017
“WATCH robot builder construct house in two days.” “New robotic drill performs skull surgery 50 times faster.” “The Washington Post’s robot reporter has published 850 articles in the past year.” Seeing these news headlines, I instantly recall Elon Musk, who has not been discreet about his worries over the rise of machines. He had warned…

Does ‘hand-holding’ in Innovation Work?

09 May 2017
MALAYSIA’s focus on innovation has been substantial, especially since the 10th Malaysia Plan (2011-2015), with the birth of many agencies and programmes created to boost innovation. However, the story of innovation could be traced back from decades ago, and some remind us about the failure of “hand-holding” despite Malaysia’s efforts to encourage domestic innovation. In…

Thriving in Digital World

24 January 2017
“It is not the strongest or the most intelligent who will survive, but those who can best manage change” — a saying by Charles Darwin, which has never been more apt than it is recently. Malaysia’s growth, even though steady with over an annual average of 6.4 per cent since 1970, has been declining in…

Racing for Bigger Share of the Digital Economy

22 November 2016
When Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak announced the global icon Jack Ma of Alibaba Group as Malaysia’s new digital economy adviser earlier this month, it received warm welcome and excitement from industry leaders. Ma, mentioned by Forbes as the top 10 richest people in technology, is a highly successful self-made billionaire, seen by many…
Can e-Learning Replace Classroom Experience?

Can e-Learning Replace Classroom Experience?

25 October 2016
THE first device in electronic learning, called “Automatic Teacher”, was invented in 1924. Unfortunately, the creator, Ohio State University professor Sidney Pressey, who designed it as a self-scoring machine, did not taste success. A century later, with the heavy use of computers and the Internet today, e-learning has become widespread, while its tools and delivery…

Unlocking the Culture of Innovation

27 September 2016
Over the past decades, creativity and innovation have become critical skills in unleashing novel ideas and inventions to keep up with the global economy. When a country creates and markets new technology, the whole world will gravitate towards it. Isn’t it mind-boggling that a couple of decades ago, touchscreen technology was only featured in science…
