Bangladesh is one of the fastest growing economies in the world. There is political stability under a democratic system. Inflation is steady because of good monetary and fiscal management. Bangladesh has never defaulted, not even for a dollar. Building a knowledge-based economy is a key priority. In addition to that, the country is highly focused on investment. Bangladesh sees the creation of an open, predictable and competitive climate for private investment as an obvious step towards achieving its development goals.

A business operates within an environment decided by the economic, political, technological, social and legal conditions that exist in a country. So Bangladesh has been working to create a modern business climate through reforms in all spheres, diagnosing and correcting every procedure that has an impact on business.

ডিজিটাল লুটপাটের আরেক নাম ‘অনলাইন পাইরেসি’

সমাজের ভালো দিকগুলো দেখার একটা চমৎকার সুযোগ এনে দিয়েছে এই বৈশ্বিক মহামারি। করোনা রোগীদের সেবা করতে গিয়ে ডাক্তার ও সেবিকারা ভয়ংকর ঝুঁকিপূর্ণ জীবনযাপন করছেন। শিক্ষকরা অনলাইনের মাধ্যমে শিক্ষার্থীদেরকে শিক্ষা দিতে গিয়ে বিরামহীন পরিশ্রম করছেন। অনেক স্বেচ্ছাসেবী রাতদিন শুধু মাস্ক সেলাই করছেন আর বিতরণ করছেন যাতে মরনঘাতী ভাইরাসটির ছড়িয়ে পড়া ঠেকানো যায়।

আর আমরা যারা অবশিষ্ট রয়েছি তারা কী করছি? সঠিক কাজই করছি। অর্থাৎ ঘরে বসে থেকে পছন্দের মুভি ও টেলিভিশন শো দেখছি। এর বাইরেও কিছু লোক রয়েছে যারা এই ভয়ংকর দুর্যোগের মুহূর্তকে কাজে লাগিয়ে ফায়দা লোটার চেষ্টা করছে।

আমরা জানি কোনো কিছুর দাম নিয়ে বিক্রেতাদের সঙ্গে ডিল করার সুনির্দিষ্ট আইন রয়েছে। তারপরও কিছু মানুষ অতিরিক্ত লাভের জন্য ডিজিটাল পাইরেসির সঙ্গে যুক্ত হয়ে পড়ছে। তারা লাখ লাখ মুভি, টেলিভিশন শো, গান, ই-বুক ইত্যাদি অনলাইন থেকে চুরি করে অন্যের কাছে বিক্রি করে দিচ্ছে। কিছু মানুষের কঠোর পরিশ্রমের ফল এভাবে বেহাত হয়ে যাচ্ছে। এতে বিনোদন খাতের অনেক মানুষ ক্ষতিগ্রস্ত হচ্ছে। বেকার হয়ে পড়ছে অনেক কর্মী।

অনলাইন পাইরেসি আর কিছুই নয়, ডিজিটাল লুটপাট ছাড়া। এ ধরনের অনৈতিক কার্যকলাপ বন্ধের জন্য এখনই নীতিনির্ধারকদের সোচ্চার হওয়া উচিত। বিশেষ করে নতুন স্বাভাবিক জীবনে যারা নাটক, চলচ্চিত্র, গান, ই-বুক ইত্যাদি তৈরি করবেন তাদেরকে সুরক্ষা দেওয়া উচিত।

যদিও ডিজিটাল পাইরেসি নতুন কোনো বিষয় নয়, তবে এই মহামারির সময়ে সবাই যখন ঘরে বসে নানা ধরনের বিনোদন খুঁজছে, তখন এই ডিজিটাল লুটেরাদের তৎপরতা বেড়ে গেছে। যুক্তরাষ্ট্রের ‘মুশো’ নামের একটি পাইরেসি সনাক্তকারী প্রতিষ্ঠান দেখিয়েছে যে মহামারি শুরু হওয়ার প্রথম দিকে মুভি পাইরেসির পরিমাণ ৪৩ শতাংশ বৃদ্ধি পেয়েছে। অপরদিকে গুগল সার্চ ইঞ্জিনে ভিডিও পাইরেসি সাইট ‘সোপটুডে’র সার্চের পরিমাণ গত বছরের মধ্য এপ্রিলের চেয়ে এ বছর ৫০ শতাংশ বেড়েছে। এই সাইটে মূলত বিনামূল্যে মুভি, টেলিভিশন শো, থিয়েটার শো ইত্যাদি দেখা যায়। বলার অপেক্ষা রাখে না, এই সাইটের অধিকাংশ কনটেন্টই চুরি করা। এই সাইট যারা পরিচালনা করেন তারা কোনো ধরনের সাবস্ক্রিপশন ফি ছাড়াই এবং পপ-আপ বিজ্ঞাপন ছাড়াই অর্থ উপার্জন করছেন।

এমনকি মানুষ যখন হলিউডের সর্বশেষ মুভি দেখার জন্য স্ট্রিমিং করছে তখন তারা (অনলাইন লুটেরা) অনৈতিক পন্থায়, অবৈধভাবে সেসব মুভির কোড চুরি করছে। ফলে নেটফ্লেক্স, এইচবিও, ডিজনি প্লাস, হুলু এবং অ্যামাজন প্রাইমের দর্শকরা চলে যাচ্ছে ওইসব অবৈধ সাইটে। এই চৌর্যবৃত্তির ফলে ভিডিও নির্মাতাদের টিকে থাকা কঠিন হয়ে পড়ছে।

বিশ্বে এখন ১৪০টির মতো স্ট্রিমিং সাইট রয়েছে যারা বিভিন্ন মূল্যে গ্রাহকের কাছে ভিডিও সরবরাহ করে থাকে। মূল্য দিয়ে ক্রয় করা ছাড়া গ্রাহকের কাছে অন্যকোনো আইনি বিকল্প ছিল না। কিন্তু এখন অনলাইন দস্যুদের কারণে স্ট্রিমিং প্রতিষ্ঠানগুলোর টিকে থাকা হুমকির মুখে পড়েছে।

গত বছর শুধু অনলাইন ভিডিও পাইরেসির কারণে যুক্তরাষ্ট্র ২৯ দশমিক ২ বিলিয়ন রাজস্ব হারিয়েছে। চাকরি হারিয়েছে ২ লাখ ৩০ হাজার মানুষ। আর জিডিপি হ্রাস পেয়েছে ৪৭ দশমিক ৫ বিলিয়ন।

সন্দেহ নেই, এই অনলাইন পাইরেসির কারণে যুক্তরাষ্ট্রের বিনোদন খাত বিলিয়ন বিলিয়ন ডলার রাজস্ব হারাচ্ছে। চাকরি হারাচ্ছে এই খাতের লাখ লাখ কর্মী। আদালতকে এখনই স্বপ্রণোদিত হয়ে এইসব পাইরেসি বন্ধ করতে হবে। যুক্তরাষ্ট্রারের নীতি নির্ধারকরা ইন্টারনেট স্টেকহোল্ডারদের সঙ্গে বসে একত্রে এই সমস্যার সমাধান করেতে পারে। সার্চ ইঞ্জিন রেগুলেটরি ইচ্ছা করলেই অবৈধ লিংকগুলো ওয়েবপেজ থেকে অপসারণ করতে পারে।

কংগ্রেসের বিচার বিভাগের উচিত হবে অবৈধ বিদেশি সাইটগুলোর তালিকা তৈরি করা এবং অনলাইন পাইরেসির সঙ্গে যারা জড়িত তাদেরকে আইনের আওতায় আনতে নির্দেশনা প্রদান করা।

Research Publications / Be aware of Predatory Journals
« on: March 12, 2020, 04:57:41 PM »
Predatory publishing, sometimes called write-only publishing or deceptive publishing, is an exploitive academic publishing business model that involves charging publication fees to authors without checking articles for quality and legitimacy and without providing the other editorial and publishing services that legitimate academic journals provide, whether open access or not. They are regarded as predatory because scholars are tricked into publishing with them, although some authors may be aware that the journal is poor quality or even fraudulent. New scholars from developing countries are said to be especially at risk of being misled by predatory publishers. According to one study, 60% of articles published in predatory journals receive no citations over the five-year period following publication.

Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

What is Robotic Process Automation?

Robotic Process Automation is the technology that allows anyone today to configure computer software, or a “robot” to emulate and integrate the actions of a human interacting within digital systems to execute a business process. RPA robots utilize the user interface to capture data and manipulate applications just like humans do. They interpret, trigger responses and communicate with other systems in order to perform on a vast variety of repetitive tasks. Only substantially better: an RPA software robot never sleeps, makes zero mistakes and costs a lot less than an employee.

How is RPA different from other enterprise automation tools?

In contrast to other, traditional IT solutions, RPA allows organizations to automate at a fraction of the cost and time previously encountered. RPA is also non-intrusive in nature and leverages the existing infrastructure without causing disruption to underlying systems, which would be difficult and costly to replace. With RPA, cost efficiency and compliance are no longer an operating cost but a byproduct of the automation.

Academia not preparing youths rightly for job market: executives..



Academic grading like CGPA has become a tool to reduce the number of jobseekers against the high demand because such achievement does not necessarily reflect the competency sought by companies, top private sector officials said yesterday.

There is a gap between students’ learning from universities and what the companies look for in jobseekers.

As a result, companies have to put in additional effort like arranging skills training programme or recruiting from abroad to meet their requirements, they said in a roundtable.

The Office of Professional Development of the Bangladesh Youth Leadership Centre (BYLC) and The Daily Star organised the discussion styled “Skill strategies for jobs: How Bangladesh can meet skills demand for a new era of work and technology while ensuring diversity” at The Daily Star Centre in Dhaka.

“Young people who are entering the job market have huge incapacity to learn,” said Mominul Islam, managing director of IPDC Finance.


The financial sector is rapidly changing around the world and Bangladesh may fail to keep pace because of lack of skills, he added.

Shaheen Khan, CEO of supermarket chain Meena Bazar, said during hiring they look for people with skills in supply chain management.

“But these things are not taught at universities.”

Khan said they tried to collaborate with some private universities to overcome the issues but could not succeed.

“So, what we had to do was recruiting people as management trainee and teach them from scratch,” he said.

Quazi Mohammad Shahed, CEO of Partex Star Group, said in his career he has seen people coming out of universities “with no clue on how work gets done”.

He recommended that business houses offer students part-time job at different stages of their university education so that they can graduate with some practical knowledge.

As a local business group they want to ensure diversity and for this they recruit from different universities and not only from Dhaka, Shahed added.

The nature of jobs is changing, which the academia does not take into account, said Eleash Mridha, managing director of Pran Group.

For example, basic knowledge on accounting and bookkeeping is no longer required because accounting software now takes care of it.

“I think day-to-day accounting, what we learnt during academic life, is gone now. What we need is someone who can design the software,” he said.

Hossain Khaled, managing director of Anwar Group, said in some of their recent recruitments they did not include CGPA (cumulative grade point average) as requirement but preferred experiences.

Organisations like the BYLC that work on skills development can collaborate with private companies on what kind of skills are being developed among students at present and what kind of job they can do.

A significant amount of remittance is going overseas because of a lack of middle management in the country.

“It’s because we cannot find people here,” Khaled added.

Maliha M Quadir, managing director of Shohoz, said as a new sector in Bangladesh they found it difficult to find people who could “think and adapt to new things”.

Employees of start-ups like Shohoz have to face new situations every day, she said.

“So people need to be very agile in their way of thinking, adapting and doing things,” she added.

“As a journalist I have learned over the many years that there is a part where many jobs are actually going after few people,” said Mahfuz Anam, editor and publisher of The Daily Star.

“But that’s at one level. But at a larger level that too few jobs are beingchased by three, four, five, ten times multiple of that job. So, that is a mismatch.”

The youth unemployment rate in Bangladesh is 12 percent, in contrast to 3.5 percent in India and 4.05 percent in China, according to the World Bank.

Digital journalism is the field where media houses like The Daily Star will find their future growth, he said.

“So those who want to be journalists in the future will have to be digital or multimedia journalists and they need to have digital skills as well as the ability to write,” he added.

The country’s education system does not equip the youth with critical thinking capacity, which is required for the 21st century, said Ejaj Ahmad, founder and president of the BYLC.

And this is where the BYLC comes in: it offers world-class curriculum to overcome such challenges, he said.

Syed Farhad Ahmed, managing director of Aamra Companies; Rashed Noman, country director of Augmedix Bangladesh; Manjur Mahmud, director and chief operating officer of DataSoft; and Rahel Ahmed, CEO of Prime Bank, also spoke, among others.

Exploring Significant Family Income Ranges of Career Decision Difficulties of Adolescents in Bangladesh Applying Regression Techniques

Abstract:
Career Decision Making is essential part of human life. Most of the people are thinking about this since adolescence. Therefore, we should analyze significant features about career decision difficulties of adolescents in Bangladesh. The goal of this work to explore the most affected class of adolescents about career decision difficulties considering family income ranges in Bangladesh. In this situation, we gathered several records of high school going adolescents at Faridganj, Chandpur, Bangladesh using career decision difficulties questionnaire which was proposed by I. Gati et. al. Hence, several regression algorithms were considered for experimental analysis based on the characteristics of our primary career decision difficulties dataset. After that, these algorithms were applied into career decision difficulties dataset of adolescents and explored the best regression algorithm based on experimental results from them. Then, our selected best algorithm was implemented throughout different datasets (split from primary dataset) and interpreted their findings. Finally, we observed that middle level family income ranges (10000-21000 BDT) of adolescents were faced more difficulties to take proper decision about career than others. This analysis is suggested as a complementary tool for further psychological treatment about career decisions.

An Optimization Approach to Improve Classification Performance in Cancer and Diabetes Prediction

Abstract:
There are many destructive diseases in the world which cause rapid death by taking time to affect such as cancer and diabetes. They take a lot of time to spread, thus they are curable or somewhat scalable to a great extent if they are diagnosed soon after introduced into the human body. Research shows that almost all type of cancer can be cured if they are detected in the early stage. It is also true for diabetes as they can be controlled if they are detected at the right time. So, a prediction technique that takes help from the computer and processes data from affected user to detect possible contamination can be a great tool for assisting both the doctors and patients with these diseases. A challenge in the process is that the detection accuracy has to be acceptable in order to make the system a reliable one. In this study, we have analyzed medical data using several classification algorithms in order to optimize classifier performance for cancer and diabetes prediction.
