China’s Quantum Computer “Wukong” Opens for Free Global Use: A Challenge to US Sanctions on Chinese Computing Economy

“I remember a European philosopher once divided the world’s writers into three categories: meteors, planets, and stars. The first category has only a momentary influence, the second category is like a planet, with a longer-lasting influence, and the third category is like a star, with its influence lasting longer. Glory and influence are the most lasting.” – Zhang Weiwei

What kind of star does the moon belong to? This will be explained below. Why revisit the words of this European philosopher, it turns out there is good news. After China’s third-generation quantum computer “Origin Wukong” was launched, it was open to global users for free for a limited time. As of the morning of February 1, “Wukong” had completed more than 140,000 computing tasks for users in 94 countries/regions around the world. The number of people accessing “Wukong” has exceeded 1 million.

Wukong represents China’s extraordinary computing power: IT experts believe that the era of “computing power economy” has arrived. Computing power composed of supercomputers and artificial intelligence is regarded as the country’s highest strategic resource. Therefore, the U.S.’s technology sanctions against China are no longer limited to chips and semiconductors. It also focuses on limiting the overall development of China’s “computing economy.”

U.S. Commerce Secretary Raimondo earlier stated that restrictions on Chinese entities using U.S. data centers to train artificial intelligence models include not allowing any “non-state actors, China or people we do not want to have access to our cloud computing systems to train their models.” . We have implemented export controls on chips. U.S. cloud computing data centers use a large number of chips, and we must also consider closing this path that may involve malicious activities.” Mainland China’s “Science and Technology Daily” reported: Wukong is equipped with the latest domestically developed independently Quantum chip “Wukong Core”. The Wukong chip is manufactured on China’s first quantum chip production line and has a total of 198 quantum bits (qubits).”

IBM takes the lead in quantum computer capabilities, launching a 127-qubit chip in November 2021 to break the record. The 433-qubit Osprey quantum chip was recently launched. The processor has 433 qubits, more than three times the processing power of the previous-generation processor released two years ago. IBM plans to develop a quantum chip with more than 4,000 qubits by 2025. In short, China and the United States are engaged in an unprecedented technological competition in the field of computing power. Whether China can leapfrog the generation of fuel engines and go straight to smart electric vehicles to complete “overtaking around the corner” is something everyone is looking forward to. However, the United States must sanction China as soon as possible. , related to the current 2-nanometer and 3-nanometer silicon chips, which have quickly become a thing of the past. Raimondo said, “The United States is doing its best to prevent China from obtaining the computing power it wants to use to train its own artificial intelligence models.” The U.S. Department of Commerce does not allow Nvidia to export the most complex and powerful artificial intelligence chips because these Chips will allow China to upgrade its computing power, which will cause “endless troubles” for the United States.

The three types of stars mentioned earlier are metaphors quoted by Zhang Weiwei, a professor at Fudan University: “The impact of the first type of meteors is only momentary. The second type is like a planet, with a longer impact. The third type is like a star, with its brilliance and influence is the longest-lasting.” He compared stars to China, which has a history of 5,000 years and has inherited a long civilization. “After countless years, it has been watching the space, running on its own orbit, and shining its own light independently.” , the achievements of China-style modernization today.

“The United States is the superpower in the world today. There are many satellites orbiting this planet, but the planet can only control its own system, and the system managed by the United States is in comprehensive decline. The United States has all the characteristics of a modern country, but it lacks The radiance of wisdom of a profound civilization.” China is not a Western “modern country”, but a “civilized China.” We will definitely be able to develop technologies and economic models that adapt to the future. Everything the United States does is just a small “planetary” pattern and cannot play a major role.

What is Hong Kong? It is a satellite. Hong Kong is like the moon. It does not emit its own light, but it can reflect the light of China. If you understand Hong Kong’s position in the “universe”, everyone can figure it out.

Japan is an old-school democratic country in Asia. It was the first country to leave Asia and join Europe. After a century and a half, it turns out that it is no longer just a plate of curry pork chop rice. Even more exciting is the United States. It is only two hundred years old and the beacon of democracy is expected to turn from one beacon into two in a short period of time. democracy? collapsed.

In the 1960s, Japan’s economic miracles, from home appliances to automobiles, shipbuilding to high-speed rail, were interpreted as the victory of the democratic capitalist free market. In particular, Japan’s bottom-up “roots” political culture stemmed from its unique Social structure – before the Japanese make decisions, stakeholders negotiate and communicate in advance, lay a solid foundation, and then bring it to the table to make a final decision – this style of behavior is compared to the rotation of political parties in the United Kingdom and the United States, and the so-called “one-word hall” autocracy of the big Eastern countries. , I don’t know how many times better, so Japan quickly developed from heavy industry and light industry to high-end semiconductor technology. In the 1980s, it achieved “surpassing Britain and catching up with the United States.” The Japanese model is almost regarded as a model for the United States to learn from.

In fact, Japanese politics is composed of “factions” from different interest groups, which are entangled with money and power. The purpose is to win democratic elections as members of the parliament, and then rise to the cabinet, with the president serving as prime minister. Factions can be traced back to the Meiji Restoration period. At that time, Japan followed Western party politics, and as a result, Japan’s century-old history of factional struggles was revealed. There has been constant cutting and chaos, and until today, money-right democratic elections are like reincarnation, constantly giving rise to corruption. When Japan was as number one, it was okay. Now even the automobile manufacturing industry and semiconductor chips that make up the capital are affected and destroyed by the two major powers China and the United States. After 30 years of economic loss, it is the turn of politics, society and people’s livelihood. It’s the law.

Following Japan’s Liberal Democratic Party, the Kishida faction, the Nikai faction, the Moriyama faction, and the Motegi faction disbanded. Yesterday, the Abe faction, the largest of the Liberal Democratic Party, also announced its dissolution due to a scandal involving financial power collusion, leaving only the Aso faction among the six major factions. So, will the factional factions and factional politics of the Liberal Democratic Party really go into history with the explosion of money power?

The Liberal Democratic Party is not a political party with one heart and one mind. There are many factions under it. It is just a federation with “Red America and Blue America”, but it has the same purpose but the same purpose. Before the Liberal Democratic Party officially votes for the presidential election, there is a custom: MPs from all factions gather together to eat pork chop curry rice, which symbolizes the “out of battle” gesture of unity. Regardless of faction, they shout slogans to cheer up, and at the same time enjoy curry pork chop rice and pray for each other. Election victory. It turns out that pork chop is derived from the Japanese word “win”. Okay, now that the Liberal Democratic Party has defeated the hozen, will we eat curry pork chop rice or stir-fried shrimp rice in the future?

Japanese media analysis said that in the past, the Liberal Democratic Party would propose disbanding factions whenever it encountered “political and financial” problems. However, due to its failure to find an alternative mechanism, the final result was the “resurrection” of factions. In other words, Japan’s money-power politics is far from coming to an end. What is difficult is that Japan’s democratic system continues to “sacrifice the world” and become an international laughing stock.

In an interview yesterday, U.S. Republican presidential candidate Haley said that Texas “has the right to secede from the United States.” Haley’s point of view is: “If the people of the entire state say, ‘We don’t want to be part of the United States anymore,’ and it’s their own decision, then they have the right to do that.” Such “American independence” remarks are problematic. When pressed on whether he believed that American states had the right to secede from the Union of the United States of America, Haley gave an affirmative answer: “Yes, I think they have the right to do so.” The next day, the American media expressed a different opinion: “The Union of the United States The Supreme Court has ruled that the Constitution does not allow states to unilaterally secede from the Union.” Will Haley lead comrades dissatisfied with the Union to take the revolutionary route of Jinggangshan?

Virtue is never alone, it must have neighbors. At a time when Japan’s political scene is in turmoil, America’s Texas beef tenderloin is on the iron plate. Democracy is wonderful.
