China Plans For Supremacy In AI & Quantum Computing

The Chinese government plans some significant breakthroughs in quantum technologies, which would make China a leading quantum superpower. The country is entering a race with the US in advanced technologies from semiconductor chips to Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Quantum Computing over the next five years. China is already actively involved in quantum communications and the country's efforts are set to increase further with its latest 5 year economic planning cycle, where it   intends to create a long-distance and high-speed quantum communication system that is compatible with classical communication technology.  

China has been a long-running rival and partner of the United States in producing massive technologies from various companies like Apple, Intel, Microsoft, and Amazon. Indeed, many of the components that are used to make these companies' products are made in Chinese factories, which offer lower production costs compared to the US and EU.

The Chinese government is also setting high expectations in the field of quantum computing, with plans to achieve the coherent manipulation of more than a few hundred qubits before the end of the 14th five-year plan, while also developing quantum simulators that can perform beyond classical computers in solving a number of problems. However, the tension between the two countries has tightened in the past years, as the United States has enforced a Trade Ban on several Chinese companies, including Huawei.

This issue was repeatedly denied by Huawei but has been banned from using components and tech from Google and Qualcomm, which it heavily relies upon. 

Economists and industry analysts say the latest five-year plan stands out for its emphasis on advanced technologies and innovation. It also includes China’s vision for 2035, when the country expects to have “significant breakthroughs on core technologies and seeks to be among the most innovative nations globally.” China is known to have been working on a hack-proof quantum computer that could send messages like electronic mail and video calls using next-generation technology. The tech heavily relies on satellites to boost its power and quantum computing which has been the focus of most researchers to develop. 

Artificial Intelligence is also a significant thing in China, as it aims to assign the telecoms company ZTE the status of national champion in creating the country's native AI that could power most of its technology and end its reliance on the United States. Huawei would also join the five-year plan's timeline, helping the country develop and advance in various technologies such as smartphones and computers.

China is developing a collection of impressive innovations in the past years, and it includes robotics, artificial intelligence, and 5G networks. The move by the country is to move away from its heavy reliance on partner countries such as the US and to become self-sufficient across a range of new technologies, including electric vehicles, AI, and the smartphone technology which Huawei has initially dominated.

These technologies are critical and likely to emerge as dominant over the next decade and China is aiming its sights on developing in this aspect to establish its supremacy.
