About Jay Kumar

Bio

I am an Economics M Phil. I am now working as Prgramme Executive of Prasar Bharati, (Broadcasting Corporation of India) now working as Head of Programme in All India Radio, Rourkela, Odisha. My specialization is concepts creation & sound designing for broadcast. I have won one Asia Pacific Broadcasting Union(ABU) and many National awards for sound recordiing, editing and mixing. My interest is to study different kinds of sound, sound recording and compilation. My thought is to how to create sound through words, sound effects and music which will be useful for society. Recently I am with a organisation we are trying make a eBook for blind students in Odia language of Odisha.India. My future plan is to develop a mobile which can make us recognise trees, leaves, flower etc. when we point the mobile with sensor to the tree etc and gives us information about the plant name its scientific attribute and its use though visuals and audio spoken language. The same can be extended to other like animals, physical things things. This will enable us to know the environment , use it and protect our environment.

An idea worth spreading

My future plan is to develop a mobile which can make us recognise trees, shrubs,leaves, flower etc. when we point the mobile with sensor to the tree etc it will give us information about the plant name, its scientific attribute and its use though visuals and audio spoken language. This I feel is essential because we see the trees or lives of many kinds in our every day life but we do not able to recognize many them That is why we do not know how to protect, use it. Not only this will be helpful to common man also scientists. Further it can help saving life in wilderness or jungle. The same can be extended to others like animals, physical things. This will enable us to know the environment , use it and protect environment. Lets give it "Speaking Nature". The technology is available it has to be ingrated. When the mobile is pointed towards the tree,the sensor will take a picture and send it to the mobile data base or Internet so that we will know many thing about the tree.

I'm passionate about

Passionate about audio-visual of nature.

Talk to me about

My TED story

"Speaking Nature"-My future plan is to develop a mobile which can make us recognise trees, leaves, flower etc. when we point the mobile with sensor to the tree etc and gives us information about the plant name, its scientific attribute and its use though visuals and audio spoken language. The same can be extended to other like animals, physical things. This will enable us to know the environment , use it and protect our environment.The possibilities are endless we can create virtual nature in detail. So that common man, scientist, student, teacher & environmentalists and so on.

Will India be the next Super Power of Knowledge.
Gorge jee, I appreciate your feelings. I agree that we are creating new knowledge and putting them in Internet or printed papers & electronic media. I do agree with your concern regarding redundancy of knowledge.We will be forced to think how to keep, why to, where to and at what cost. A bigger problems can be solved by simple ways and means. We have to think of that very deeply. We presently will not be able to decide which data will be the data of future. We can not store everything in binary system. Lets think of indepedent, self sufficient, efficient system to solve the problem. For this I have thought of one solution by aping nature. Take the example of seeds. Lets call it Data Seed or Seed Data. Nature does and does it very efficiently. Another is Genome. We can create a Genome Data of knowledge. So that we can create the same big data again and also can create many different type of data by using the Genome Data.

If Cricket is to be played at the Olympics, what should be the format for the game? T20 or 50-50?
Peter Jee, 50 over match will be too long in the present context, as it will take whole day to get result. The youth will not wait that long. I think it should be 25 or 30 overs.To get the the real charm of one day and T20 matches. I have proposed the3 over for fast bowlers and normal six overs for slow bowlers to prevent fatigue & injuries of fast bowlers and add variety to the game. By doing this we will be having quality fast bowling and create longevity of fast bowlers.

This will be great for sports in India and Olympics, if it is included in Olympics & other International tournaments. I am for T-25. The balls per over be reduced to 3 balls per over to give enough time to bowlers especially the fast bowler to bowl with full thrust. Now this is skewed in favour of batsman. Five more overs will give a chance to batsman down under the chance to score. Further 5 more overs will means extra 5 overs for slog in the end overs.At least three runs be given for if the catch is near the boundary line. the boundary should be colored with two different bright colors. The width of boundary line be of 6+6=12 inches. Lastly it should be played in indoor stadium so that the game can be played anytime even during rainy season.

Will India be the next Super Power of Knowledge.
In the Independence Day address yesterday Prime Minister of India has declared an unmanned mission to Mars to be launched shortly with the help of indigenous technology using PSLV rocket with less payload to collect data by orbiting Mars.Indian space scientists are very jubilant. Even though India has not mastered GSLV which could have tkaen higher payload. Nonetheless PSLV has got the right potential to reach Mars and can collect valuable data for future manned mission by India and other countries.

Bigger Font Size Letters of News Paper & Books For Old.
Kooser Ji, Thanks for your input.I liked the idea but it again creates host of other problems like maintenance, even if it is cheap it is not portable, etc. I have thought of this idea of increasing or decreasing font size to avoid dependency on any another object. It will be a life saving also as the older people can read their much needed information without using glass or other such materials. Further now I am realizing that why only news papers or books. It should be applied to all other product & services the senior citizen people uses, like mobile, electrical switches, telephone directories, medicines, food items, even the outside labels of computers & peripherals as mentioned by Mr. Gale.

Bigger Font Size Letters of News Paper & Books For Old.
Thanks Anne, You have given a new dimension to the idea I have not thought of. True, its should be legal so as to protect people from lot of scams and preventing companies to commit such frauds.There must be a legal provision for every printed documents, labels, information's regarding products & services, considering its purpose in the larger context.

Bigger Font Size Letters of News Paper & Books For Old.
James Jee, In many countries we do not have libraries. Even if libraries are there in many countries they do not like to go to library.They purchase the news paper or books and read. In our part people purchase and read.Another place they like to read is the tea stalls nearby. After reading they analyse the news and many interesting aspects of a particular news comes out with different comments and arguments. I like this even if I purchase news paper as apart from the news one can hear lot of other news of the area which one can not know if reads it library or home. One can not discuss like that in the library.I also do not like to read in a library where very serious looking old and young people will be reading as if they entered into he book. But when you make even small noise every one will look at you angrily as if you have murdered some one. For libraries does not teaches it destroys your creativity. I am talking about the Tea stall with news paper & some books.

Will whites ever see blacks as superior or any aspect of blacks being superior to them
Lillian Madam, Racism is deep rooted social evil everywhere.This is still being propagated in new forms using new technology. This can not be eliminated at least in this century. The Indian minority is being targeted in England during riots.Only the white does it that's not true it is the people living in deffrent regions and many social, economic and political leads to people of majority or people with money does it even today to show supremacy.Even he uplifted ones also does the same after being elevated to higher economic, social,political strata.
