Sabah moving towards creating a ubiquitous state by 2025 – Siringan

Sabah is moving towards creating a ubiquitous computing state by the year 2025, said State Minister of Resource Development and Information Technology Datuk Siringan Gubat.

Ubiquitous computing (ubicomp) is a post-desktop model of human-computer interaction in which information processing has been thoroughly integrated into everyday objects and activities.

“We hope to reach a stage where services (be they private, public or community based) can be available from anywhere, at anytime and by anyhow,” he said.

Siringan said this in his remarks at the certificate presentation and closing ceremony of training on “Basic on Mobile Tablets with iOS and Android Platforms,” here yesterday.

He said it was a daunting task but believed the government could achieve it by working together in smart partnership with non-governmental organisations (NGOs), especially the Sabah Women Entrepreneurs and Professionals Association (SWEPA).

In this respect, Siringan welcomed the initiative by SWEPA in collaborating with the Sabah Computer Society to engage its members to embrace ICT to stay relevant in today’s ever evolving technological landscape.

“Keeping abreast with technologies and learning new things continuously is a necessity, particularly for entrepreneurs and professionals, lest they become obsolete very fast,” he said adding that the close cooperation between the two NGOs should be emulated by other NGOs in the state.
