China Supercomputer Force Virus Mutation Prediction, among the top 500 supercomputers in the world, there are 219 in China.
China is making use of the innovation potential of the Internet, big data and artificial intelligence, and will become a superpower in the field of innovation, and has made some outstanding achievements. China hopes to be a world leader in the field of artificial intelligence by 2030, and hopes to become a "major artificial intelligence innovation center in the world".
For example, according to the China Internet Development Report 2019, the independent innovation capability of network information technology in China has been continuously enhanced, and the prototype model of a new generation of billions of supercomputers has been developed. Before that, six supercomputers in China have been combined, and the world’s first national supercomputing Internet was born. In addition, using artificial intelligence, space supercomputers will be built in the future.
For another example, now, China people have mastered the world’s top super technologies, such as high-speed rail, large aircraft, aircraft carrier, exploitation of combustible ice, development technology of rare earth super heavy oil in oil, discovery of dry-hot rock mass, quantum remote communication and space technology.
China’s economy is moving from tradition to emerging.
For example, China’s "New Generation Artificial Intelligence Development Plan" has drawn a grand route to build a $150 billion artificial intelligence industry by 2030. Moreover, some giant companies in China are also guiding billions of dollars to invest in domestic basic scientific research or acquire innovative technologies from abroad, and China’s innovative ability in the field of supercomputing has also been widely concerned and praised by the international industry.
According to the latest issue of the list of the top 500 supercomputers in the world released by the 34th International Supercomputing Conference, as of June 2019, the number of supercomputers in China continued to rank first, reaching 219, while the United States and Japan ranked second (116) and third (29), followed by France (18), Germany (16) and the Netherlands (15). All other countries are expressed in single digits. As the most authoritative supercomputer list in the world, TOP500 is jointly compiled by computer experts from the United States and Germany and published every six months. The number of supercomputers in China has surpassed that in the United States since 2016, and it has been leading ever since.
Up to now, six national supercomputing centers have been built in China, including Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Wuxi, Tianjin, Jinan and Changsha. At present, six supercomputing brains in China have been combined, and the world’s first supercomputing artifact, the supercomputing Internet, has been illuminated to form a "super team" to enhance the core competitiveness of China’s supercomputing field.
Twenty years ago, there was not a single machine in China among the top 500 supercomputers in the world, which also means that supercomputing has become a national heavyweight and the focus of competition among countries, because supercomputing can meet the huge computing needs in scientific research, geological exploration, weather forecast, computational simulation, biopharmaceuticals, gene sequencing, aerospace, image processing and other fields.
For example, at present, the virus is ravaging some cities in China. At this time, scientific research experts need a lot of computing resources to screen drugs against novel coronavirus and predict the mutation of the virus. According to media reports, at present, some supercomputing centers in China are making efforts to help China CDC develop novel coronavirus vaccine, and researchers are using the supercomputing center in China to carry out research work such as target search, new drug screening, lead and test optimization, pharmacology and toxicology.
In fact, in the current global economic environment, manufacturing and mastering the most powerful supercomputers is considered as one of the important standards to measure a country’s scientific and technological strength, because countries and enterprises increasingly need to widely use supercomputers in many fields, such as machinery, new materials, biological environment and energy technology.
According to the analysis of Jeremy Rifkin, the author of the Third Industrial Revolution, the new global economic wave is a new consumption economy driven by new technologies, and it is necessary to achieve a breakthrough in economic growth through economic changes driven by new energy, new technologies, new communications and new transportation and logistics technologies. Rifkin believes that in this wave, China has taken the lead in the field of innovative science and technology economy. (End)
