Telenor Group survey: Pakistan’s millennials point to artificial intelligence as possible gateway to achieving peace

Telenor Group today released the findings of its regional online survey that assessed the attitudes of Asia’s millennials towards technology and social impact, as well as the support they feel necessary to become future leaders committed to peace. Organized to support Telenor Youth Forum 2017 recruitment, the online survey engaged 2,500 respondents aged 15 to 30 years in Asian markets where Telenor is present. They include Bangladesh, India, Myanmar, Malaysia, Pakistan, and Thailand. Pakistan’s youth say they’re most passionate for education for all The multi-market online survey found that Pakistan’s millennials are most passionate for providing opportunities for children to get an education (35 percent of survey takers), followed by unemployment among youth (21 percent). Other global issues that Pakistani millennials are driven to make change include climate change and global warming (20 percent), the stigma surrounding mental health issues (14 percent), and gender inequality (10 percent). Resolving many of the same issues is also a year-long mission of Telenor Youth Forum delegates, whose tech-driven proposals were funded for research and prototyping at a pitching session held in Bangkok last month. Asia’s millennials feel strongly about the role of technology and its impact when relating to the pursuit of their social causes. More than half of Pakistan’s millennials (51 percent) polled believe that enabling equal opportunities and access to education will benefit most from technology advancements. Selected by the second most number of respondents was confronting climate change and global warming (23 percent). Artificial intelligence for world peace, why not? When asked about the technology that has the largest potential to give rise to peace, 34 percent of Pakistan’s respondents placed their bets on artificial intelligence, followed by the Internet of Things (29 percent), and virtual reality (28 percent). Across all six markets, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things and virtual reality rank consistently in the top three – suggesting the vast potential seen in these future technologies by the Internet generation. The most innovative and entrepreneurial generation of all-time Another consistent trend across all markets is the youth’s perspectives of their generation. Regionally, 37 percent of the millennials polled described themselves as ‘the most innovative and entrepreneurial generation in history’, which reflects a similar proportion in Bangladesh (37 percent), Malaysia (38 percent) and Pakistan (38 percent). Education is most critical to shape tomorrow’s peace leaders Youths in all the surveyed markets ranked education as the most critical form of support in order to enable them to become tomorrow’s peace leaders.

Telenor Pakistan #ShareYourMeal Campaign – #ShareYourMeal and make an impact

Telenor Pakistan #ShareYourMeal Campaign – #ShareYourMeal and make an impact

Ramadan is one of the most important months in Pakistan and is celebrated and observed fervently by the Pakistanis. Meals at Sehr and Iftar are an important social factor during this month in that they bring together a lot of people. While some people have the luxury of having scrumptious meals during Ramadan, unfortunately there is a majority of people living in Pakistan who cannot afford to have even basic meals. Telenor started a major CSR campaign 3 years ago by the name of #TweetAMeal through which people were asked to tweet pictures of the meals they have in Ramadan and against the number of tweets that came in Telenor Pakistan donated a sum of amount to the people of hunger struck areas. Last year, Telenor in collaboration with Pakistan Bait-ul-Maal, distributed food supplies worth Rs. 2.5 million to one of the most impoverished area of Pakistan, Thar. #ShareYourMeal Keeping alive the spirit of Ramadan and the objective of giving back to the society, Telenor Pakistan has started a CSR Campaign for Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. The aim is to make this campaign bigger than the last years so that it can provide food supplies to an even greater number of people. This year Telenor is partnering with Pakistan Red Crescent Society to conduct distribution drive in another deserving part of the nation. How to Share The mechanics of #ShareYourMeal are very simple. People are just required to take pictures of their Sehri or Iftaar meals and post it on either Twitter or Instagram with #ShareYourMeal or they can post their pictures on Telenor’s Pakistan timeline with the same hashtag. In return of each picture that is shared Telenor Pakistan will add a specific amount to the donation pool that will be distributed by the end of Ramadan amongst the needy. Hence, more pictures that Telenor receives, more the donation amount that will get distributed. Media Support Telenor Pakistan hopes that media will play an important part in spreading the word for the whole nation to rally behind a great cause and contribute with their pictures so that it can reach out to a bigger proportion of the population and provide the deserving with food supplies keeping in mind the giving spirit of...

Smartlink Technologies Marketing Director Ahmed Butt was quoted as saying, “Majority of the Pakistani consumers prefer to purchase smartphones remaining in this price bracket and thus this bracket has always remained a key market for all brands.

HUAWEI Mate 9 – The Only Companion You Need for Global Travel

HUAWEI Mate 9 – The Only Companion You Need for Global Travel

As people’s living standards continue to improve, they travel more frequently outside of their own country. It is becoming more important for them to choose a smart phone with worldwide roaming function. Wireless spectrum is widely used in telecommunication, satellite and military fields. But the bands assigned for telecommunications vary among different countries. As a result, the over 1,000 telecommunication carries in the world operate in dozens of bands. If a mobile phone has worldwide roaming in most countries and regions in the world, it requires the phone maker to invest multiple resources such as more frequency engineers to design, pair and test antennas for different bands. Only global makers like Apple, Samsung and HUAWEI have this kind of R&D power. That is why flagship products of these three phone makers usually support global roaming. As the top business flagship model, HUAWEI Mate 9 comes with two SIM card slots that enable one SIM for your home country and another one for the city you are traveling in. Mate 9 also supports 35 bands in the world, including five 2G bands, ten 3G bands and twenty 4G bands that cover 217 countries and regions in the world and works with 1,334...
