He added that Pakistan and CERN are working in close collaboration from quite some time and the work from Pakistan’s industries is favourable.

Also present at the occasion Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission (PAEC) Chairman Dr Ansar Parvez said that the membership will open opportunities for the locals to learn from the developed world.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, on February 11, had told a four member CERN delegation that Pakistan is hoping for associate membership of the European organisation.

Baseless Report in the Gulf News

Responding to questions, the spokesperson rejected the allegations contained in a recent editorial in the Gulf News as baseless and malicious.

Pakistan and UAE enjoy long standing, deep rooted and brotherly relations.  In the case of Expo 2020, Pakistan was committed to vote for Turkey which requested for Pakistan’s support as far as back in May 2011. The UAE entered the race much later. This fact was explained to the UAE leadership. It was also conveyed that if Turkey were to withdraw its candidature, Pakistan would not only support the UAE but also lobby for it. Consequently, when Turkey withdrew its candidature, Pakistan voted in favour of the UAE in the subsequent rounds of voting. Pakistan’s supportive efforts have been acknowledged by the UAE leadership, which has conveyed its appreciation at the highest level.

Pakistan has always stood by its friends and would continue to do so. Responsible newspapers are expected to ensure greater accuracy in their reporting.

KARACHI: All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them, says Walt Disney.

Disney’s quote, perhaps, best explains the success story of Farhan Masood, who has been recognised as one of the world’s brilliant minds by Massachusetts Institute of Technology earlier this year for his product – world’s fastest retina and face scanner algorithm called SmartXS.

 

SmartXS is a biometric verification system that uses human face and eye to verify his identity, Masood said, and works mainly in two spaces – workforce management and security access control.

“Our algorithm is very fast,” he said while claiming it is the world’s fastest retina and face scanner algorithm.

“We are also getting queries from immigration departments of many governments for this product,” he said, refusing to share details. “University of Pennsylvania has also shown interest in the medical application of this product.”

Before starting his own entrepreneurial venture, Masood served as IT professional and had a lucrative job. He is the originator of Urdu, Persian and Arabic on internet and was able to incorporate Urdu, Persian and Arabic characters in English-based Windows back in 1997.

Masood was hired as a project director in Dubai Electronic Government in 2000. “The government had softened its state laws for one day to hire me and few others,” he said as he didn’t have a bachelor’s degree, a requirement for that job.
