We are continually creating new departments to innovate different aspects of life and society, integrating new technological advancements into every industry. We will continue to expand and grow AIDP for the sake of finding new ways to improve living conditions for mankind.” he says
2.6 million years ago, stone tools were created. In 4000 BC, we created the wheel. In the 19th century, we created the lightbulb – then in the 20th century, we created vehicles, nuclear technology, and the internet. In the 21st century, we created biotech, nanotech, and fusion. God created mankind. Dr. Khawaja is creating AI technology because he believes that AI technology will save the future of mankind. He will continue to expand and grow AIDP for the sake of finding new ways to improve living conditions for mankind.
Dr. Khawaja states, “We will change the world. We are implementing technology that will really make a difference around the world. I want to improve the quality of life for future generations. I want to bring peace all over the world.”
Our Youth is the Future
Artificial Intelligence Defense Platform (AIDP) is being recognized globally because their brand and product operates and thinks 1000 times faster than a human being could. It doesn’t make mistakes. Smart products and smart companies improve the quality of life and remove the hassle and error within functionality. AIDP is centered around AI technology that will do this and change the world.
AIDP has many departments focusing on AI advancement in several sectors. For example, they have a department with a focus on AI technology for child advancement.
Dr. Khawaja believes that, “Youth is our future, and we want to devote our efforts not only to the advancement of mankind, but to the advancement of our children.”
They have another department focused on sustainable life on Mars and have another department that is working to revolutionize the workplace, with a focus on health and morale. Another department is utilizing AI technology for psychological advancements.

Throughout his life, Dr. Khawaja has been able to invent and innovate solutions that enabled people to trade online, safely and securely. He changed the way the world transacted – creating a more connected global economy. This was a giant step for mankind and even saved lives in recent years.
Throughout the Coronavirus Pandemic, people relied on e-commerce. They needed access to important goods and services while minimizing contact to control the spread of the virus. The ability to buy important goods and services with their computer or mobile device undoubtedly saved lives and provided an important tool as people quarantined and sheltered in place. It also provided a means of income as people began to grow online businesses to provide products and solutions for others, creating a new livelihood and income for entrepreneurs.
Dr. Khawaja is proud of his accomplishments, but he is not yet satisfied. This is what he believes to be an important aspect of his journey. He is constantly innovating, and this will never stop.

They’re pushing technological and societal advancement by not only bringing new ideas and products to the world, but also heavily influencing change and innovation. The world will be a different place, a better place because of AIDP.
Their goals are to impact as many industries as they can to improve them. They are adding more team members and building new departments to reach these goals. A barrier could potentially be the bandwidth that they need to achieve all their goals and innovate in areas that are new territory for mankind. But they have faith that they can build upon the strong team and grow the company to reach their goals. After all, that is one of the reasons AI is so important. Its capabilities stretch beyond what humans can handle and gives us more strength as a society.
“The biggest barrier I see is always doubt. People fear what they do not understand. Our goal is to overcome this fear and doubt and show people how we can save lives and improve our quality of life with AI technology.”
Innovation Cannot Proceed Without Creativity
A smart company is one that stays ahead of the curve and is leading innovation. A smart company in 2022 is affiliating itself with AI technology and integrating it into their industry to improve and innovate products and solutions. AIDP is creating new technology built around AI that will improve countless industries, save lives, and improve the quality of life. Dr. Khawaja believes in working from the heart and encourages his team to do the same.
“I believe that it’s important to have empathy and understand one another within the team so that we all can grow and succeed. Sometimes, introducing new ideas can make you feel vulnerable, but we reward creativity and encourage everyone to contribute. Without risk, there can be no reward.”
He further expresses, “I encourage my team to think outside the box to accomplish goals. Innovation cannot proceed without creativity, so creativity is important to our culture. We reward creativity. We strive to inspire and be inspired. I believe that great ideas come from not only me, but from the team. We brainstorm and work together. Everyone plays a role, and everyone contributes. This is essential to our culture.”
Believe in What You Do
Dr. Khawaja says, “In our industry, criticism and doubt is normal. Criticism and doubt is always directed towards new and innovative ideas – even the internet was doubted during its early stages. We don’t respond to it, we disregard it.”
Khawaja added, “Believe in what you do, and others will believe too. Have passion and don’t give up on what you are trying to achieve. Others may not understand, and this is why, you are a visionary of your own dreams – this is what makes you an innovator. The work you put in is what makes you an entrepreneur. To be successful, you must be persistent against all odds. Build a team and inspire them to work like you do. Together, you can reach your goals.”
