please stop taking the credit from the SOEs or CCP for your own "hatred" or bias of communism or socialism, please stop exaggerating the "strength", "advantage" or "working ethics of private businessman" at the expense of "stolen" credit of other people's hard honest work.

That's simply not him. If it was a SOE that started the business, he would boast as much.

In 2018, South Korea will remain the largest equipment market for the second year in a row. China will rise in the rankings to claim the second spot for the first time, dislodging Taiwan, which will fall to the third position. All regions tracked except Taiwan will experience growth. China will lead in growth with 43.5%, followed by Rest of World (primarily Southeast Asia) at 19.3 percent, Japan at 32.1%, Europe at 11.6%, North America at 3.8% and South Korea at 0.1%.

LOL wondering what my "brain waves" had been while reading
China Focus: Chinese helmet aimed at boosting brain power

Chinese scientists are developing a helmet to enhance brain function through monitoring and regulating brain waves and combining artificial intelligence technology.

Wei Pengfei, of the Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology (SIAT) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said his team is developing a brain function enhancement system with the goal of improving the brain's ability to perform complex tasks and regulate abnormal emotions.

The helmet could be applied in the training of special personnel to speed up an increase in memory and skills and to alleviate anxiety caused by tension.

The technology is also expected to help treat children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and people suffering depression, Alzheimer's disease, aphasia and Parkinson's disease, said Wei.

Surgically-implanted deep-brain stimulation technology first emerged in the 1960s. At the beginning of this century, scientists developed electroencephalogram feedback technology and brain-computer interface technology.

In recent years, non-invasive stimulation and regulation technology has been able to intervene in and regulate brain activities more quickly, becoming a new focus in the brain research and neuroscience field.

The helmet is based on non-invasive brain stimulation and regulation technology, said Wei. It uses flexible electrode sensors to identify brain waves when the brain is performing different tasks. Electrodes then release weak current pulses that can reach specific areas of the brain, altering brain waves, and regulating the active state of its neurons.

"Since brain tissue is very complex, we need to build a computer model first, and then determine the target area and parameters for stimulation," said Wei.

An artificial intelligence algorithm reads brain activity in real time and calculates stimulation parameters to achieve precise and personalized regulation.

The research team, based at the Institute of Brain Cognition and Brain Disease of SIAT, has a research platform for rodents, nonhuman primates and humans.

"Through animal experiments, we have analyzed specific brain areas related to attention cognition, emotional regulation, anxiety, drug addiction, stress and epilepsy. We hope we can intervene in these areas effectively," Wei said.

The team has also developed tests for cognitive ability.

For example, trial participants wore the helmet for about 15 minutes, and then were required to quickly memorize a string of numbers, English letters or words. The test found the average accuracy rate of their memories improved within two hours.

But the data is still insufficient, said Wei. Large-scale double-blind experiments among people of different ages and groups are needed to accumulate convincing data.

"We have only tested the short-term memory of those wearing the helmet, and we're planning to test their week-long memory," Wei said.

So far, researchers have developed the prototype of the first-generation helmet, which can implement feedback control on the brain waves of the cerebral cortex. The team is developing the second generation of the helmet, aiming to achieve deep-brain non-invasive stimulation.

They also intend to cooperate with hospitals in clinical tests on patients with autism, schizophrenia and children with ADHD.

The research was recently selected as one of 30 winning projects at a contest of innovative future technologies in Shenzhen, south China's Guangdong Province. The contest encouraged young Chinese scientists to conceive groundbreaking technologies and trigger innovation.

The United States, Europe and other countries and regions have launched programs to unravel the secrets of the human brain. The brain research will also help the development of artificial intelligence.

In the youtube video, it does say "民营" which can be loosely translated to "public owned" in English. However, in the company's own introduction it's controlling stake is in the hand of 中国建材集团 CNBM (China National Building Material Group Corp.) See

Also, see the logo of the two, they are the same.

In Chinese term "民营" is legally "publicly traded cooperate limited". Many of the so called "SOE" are such companies. You can buy 100 shares of ICBC (the largest bank of the world) in open market, but ICBC is still dictated by the state, call it "private" as you wish.

To summarize, the company in the story is a kind of SOE in the modern sense (shares traded in market), the state is the controlling share holder of it. It is an extreme stretch to call it a "private" company and attributing its achievement to a person.

I appreciate your enthusiasm of spreading the achievement of China, I am proud for everything like this, regardless who did it. BUT, please stop taking the credit from the SOEs or CCP for your own "hatred" or bias of communism or socialism, please stop exaggerating the "strength", "advantage" or "working ethics of private businessman" at the expense of "stolen" credit of other people's hard honest work.

It does not really matter whether the company is now public or private. The initiative goes to mr Zhang Guoliang. He is the driver of the company and he started it to begin with.Without him therre will be no domestic carbon fiber producer in China

I have no bias one way or another.It is a fact that the private company create the wealth in China

But as I said there is place for SOE like in primary industry like Mining, Power, Semiconductor, Heavy machinery etc.Where it require large capital, High entry requirement and long term investment. That few private company has the resources

As to CCP we have to look at history straight in the eye. It is true without CCP there is no modern China But they also make terrible mistake that set back the Chinese development for decades and she still paying those mistake even now. People who deny the history will make the same mistake
DXP give the right verdict and move on with it

Here is the example where SOE make sense in 80' they close small coal company due to lax of worker safety and primitive tool and equipment and concentrated on large SOE

And from the base of coal they developed all kind of supporting industry like locomotives, and heavy machinery

My point was never about questioning individual persons achievement, nor dismissing private business' contribution. My point was always about NOT to take the contribution of SOE away and put it on private business. I would have opposed the opposite act too.

About whether there is bias in your posts, I am not sure how you define it, but in my view, repeatedly calling SOE a failure, and repeatedly (twice that I have responded) labelling SOEs as private businesses do look biased. While calling SOE a failure is personal view that I am not interested in arguing, taking credits away for someone else does seem act out of bias IMO.

Can I suggest you to take true private company's success to prove your point in the future? I'd suggest example like Geely's success in reviving and developing Volvo, something like that would have my full agreement.

I would also suggest that you do a more thorough background check of related business before you use them as examples, if you do so I promise I will only make factual corrections without "accusation-like" critics.

Please, Log in or Register to view URLs content!

  • The event happened on June 1st.
  • The architecture is X86 base CPU + GPU. All of them domestically produced. I suspect it is the licenese from AMD purchased not long ago.
  • It has a Torus 6D interconnect.
  • The chips are 7nm based fabrication.
  • The prototyping has already been finished. The meeting is the "certification meeting".
  • It is not reported by any news outlet like the other two (Shenwei and Tianhe). Why? However the project's starting was publicly announced by Sugon in 2016.

So the above is news of the certification of the Tianhe and X86-based Exa-computer prototypes. I seem to have missed the news of the certification of the Shenwei prototype.
