William Saito Believes Russia Is Capable Of Becoming A Tech Leader If They Pursue this Correctly
According to the link here with Hi-Tech Chronicle, William Saito has vast experience in computer programming going back to the 1970s, which also states he began programming since Saito was 10 years old. Adding to this is William Saito’s reported experience in cybersecurity itself since 1991 with the company he founded named I/O Software. With this and other ventures with various people across the world in computing, his view would expectedly be vast enough to analyze what a nation or its people that utilize technology can potentially achieve.
Thus, his focus on Russia and its possible ascendance into the technological revolution with the vast tools they already utilize in terms of mining, oil production, military and space-related ventures, ergo the Space Station, among other channels per the recent article in Gazette Day via.
How truly intriguing for Japanese-born William Saito and his research with Russia’s technological capabilities when one considers Japan and Russia’s past; in particular the Japanese rout over the Russian Fleet during the Russo-Japanese War of 1905 that many historians consider was the trigger that caused Russia to revamp their overall military and invest in modernizing to keep up with their rival imperial colonial powers of that time which eventually propelled Russia into Super Power status they presently enjoy.
Saito believes that if Russia can get past its own self-governmental restrictions regarding IT-processing, data and creating content-sharing among other items, the giant nation could enter the technological era as a large player like they had done so with their military from 1905 and on into the present time. His background in cybersecurity with METI Japan’s-Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry -would seem to lend strong credence to Saito’s viewpoint.
However, as William Saito mentioned in the Gazette Day article, this would not happen overnight at the present moment, knowing the basic mechanics of Russian governmental policy in general. This ascendance towards becoming a world technical leader may just need a massive overhaul in regards to the way the nation processes and compartmentalizes information all together to reach this foreseen potential.
