The 2nd chat session of the Oman IGCBP 2012 group was on the topic of the Internet in 2022.
Some points mentioned at the discussion are as follows.
The Internet will be essential in our lives and it will be part of everything we have and use such as cars, homes, A/C, security system and every piece of equipment we will own. Internet of things will increase where one cannot be able to differentiate between human and a machine.
In addition, different applications will be created in order to facilitate the E-Learning, E-health, E-banking and others. Thus, most of the people will be familiar with using the Internet especially youth and more transaction will be gone through the Internet. For sure, the coverage of the network and the bandwidth of the Internet will be way improved especially that some views believe that access to the Internet will be one of the human rights. Furthermore, other languages content will improve after introducing none Latin char for domain names.
At the same time, many challenges will be raised especially for the government to protect different rights such as privacy, consumer rights, copyrights and security.
