NLP and ML to Boost Cyber Resilience in Indonesia

To carry out their regulatory role, the Indonesian Ministry of Communication and Informatics (Kemenkominfo) is using Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Machine Learning (ML) methods to combat false content online.

To implement this plan, Semuel A. Pangerapan, Director General of Informatics Applications for the Ministry of Communications and Informatics, has announced a partnership with the National Research and Innovation Agency’s (BRIN) Collaboration for the Acceleration of Indonesian Artificial Intelligence Innovation (Korika).

The two organisations would work together to develop AI technology. The AI tools then will be used by Kominfo to help combat fake news and negative social media sentiment. Semuel outlined Korika will develop an algorithm for surveillance reasons that will later be used by Kominfo.

“A technological infrastructure must be developed,” Semuel said after the signing of the Cooperation for the Development of Natural Language Processing Artificial Intelligence between the Directorate General of Aptika and Korika BRIN in the Ministry of Communication and Information’s office in Central Jakarta.

To speed up the implementation of the national artificial intelligence plan towards Indonesia’s Vision 2045, Korika Chairman Prof. Dr Ir. Hammam Riza, M.Sc., IPU suggests signing a formal Cooperation Agreement (PKS). The partnership directly results from the National Technology Awakening Day 2020 announcement of the Indonesian National Artificial Intelligence Strategy (Stranas KA).

“Korika is the product of interdisciplinary teamwork between government, business, universities as well as members of the local community. So that we can create an ecology of collaboration that fosters invention,” he explained.

The Korika chairman argued that signing a formal Cooperation Agreement (PKS) will be a valuable way to work together to speed up the rollout of Indonesia’s national policy for artificial intelligence in service of Vision 2045. He explained that this was in keeping with the establishment of BPPT’s PIKA Centre for Joint Artificial Intelligence Innovation (Korika).

Semuel stressed the Ministry’s commitment to the growth of Indonesia’s digital ecosystem and promised to keep working on AI advancements to benefit the digital sector. The government’s role in AI development is multifaceted; it is both a regulator and an enabler/encourager/accelerator.

Since many groups rely on NLP-AI, the government must back its development. So, he should look at AI and NLP as tools to help him achieve even greater success. Because with the advent of AI, humans won’t be as reliant on memory and analytics.

Semuel mentioned that one application of AI is translating foreign languages into Indonesian and vice versa. Meanwhile, Hammam outlined how natural language processing (NLP) has been around since the early days of artificial intelligence.

He claims that NLP’s varied approaches and tactics evolve like those of vintage automobiles with internal combustion engines. Nonetheless, electric or hybrid vehicles are already being used by the most cutting-edge model engines.

Similarly, rule-based language processing gave way to machine learning, which gave way to generative artificial intelligence. If just traditional NLP methods are used, then most of Indonesia’s competitive linguistic community will be familiar with NLP by now.

Governments all over the world have started taking an interest in AI. A meeting was recently conducted in Thailand to discuss the implementation of AI Ethics & Governance. The meeting was a promising first step towards advancing the responsible deployment of AI in the digital economies and cultures of Thailand. Goals, organisational framework, and operational procedures for the Artificial Intelligence Governance Centre (AIGC) were examined at length.

They also mentioned how to better implement Thailand’s National Artificial Intelligence Action Plan for Development (2017-2027), which aims to get the country’s culture, ethics, legal structure, and legislation suitable for the usage of AI. The use of AI in government increases openness and guarantees citizens equitable access to programmes and services offered by the state. To advance in artificial intelligence, it is important to focus on the here and now and help with resource management.
