China: The Future Of Technology.

2 Mins read

The wave of technological advancement within the last 2 decades has been jaw-dropping. The inventions, innovations, and diffusions of technology are rapidly spreading like wildfire.

Technology is getting both better and more complex – permeating into all spheres of human experience.

China has proven beyond reasonable doubts that she has the willpower and innovative potential to lead in the tech industry with a variety of technological innovations such as:

Artificial Intelligence (AI):

In 2017, China expressed her quest to become a leader in AI before 2030, overtaking the United States and the rest of the world. In 2020, China is on record to have had over 1000 AI Corporations with an AI industry that is worth about $23.196B as of 2021.

Some of the AI innovations include Self-drive technologies, AI prosecutors, AI doctor-bot, deep learning amongst others.

AI pros

• 5G Technology:

While the rest of the world is trying to grasp, maximize, and integrate the 4th generation technology, China is thinking out of the box on how to make the 5th Generation of telecommunication a reality.

The IMT-2020 (5G) was established in 2013 under the National Development and Reform Commission. 5G guarantees 5 to 10 times frequency efficiency than 4G and it is set to provide high speed and quality data to IoT (Internet of Things), VR (Virtual Reality), and other technologies with high data requirements.


China has invested over one billion yuan (US$152 million), and executed over 141 projects between 2006 and 2020 toward the development of nanotechnology.

This technology is geared to boost research in nanomedicine, nanomanufacturing, and nano-characterization and standardization, which boast of relative success.

Quantum computing:

China has demonstrated supremacy in the quantum computing race as Chinese scientists have tested two different quantum computers – Zuchongzi and Jiuzhang 2.0.

In December, 2020, a team from the University of Science and Technology of China – led by Pan Jianwei and Lu Chaoyang – developed the Jiuzhang 2.0. Jiuzhaigou 2.0 after the test, solved problems roughly 1024 faster than a classical computer.

This photo sonic quantum computer was designed using Gaussian boson sampling that can analyze random patches of data, using 113 detected photons.

Zuchongzi, upon experiment, used 56 superconducting qubits to perform a task whose solution is random instances, or samples from a given spread of probabilities – superseding Google’s Sycamore and IBM’s Summit – making it the world’s fastest programmable quantum computer.

What will become of China is yet to be seen as she continues to finance and dive even deeper into innovations and advancements in technology.
