U.S. Chip Industry Fears Long-Term Damage From China Trade Fight
Silicon Valley warns that sales restrictions threaten to cede its market dominance to rivals


The U.S. semiconductor industry is pressing to get out of the firing line between the U.S. and China, warning its position as the global market leader could become a casualty of the trade spat.

The industry is ramping up its lobbying with a new report spelling out potential costs of largely severing U.S. chip-supply ties with China

first my favorite chart from Jun 17, 2019 (or maybe earlier)


well since then China stopped publicly talking exacomputing (as far as I noticed -- feel free to correct this), while the US didn't:

Founder Ren Zhengfei says Huawei ‘racing to develop’ new technologies amid coronavirus pandemic

“The US will continue to increase sanctions on us, and we will have to complete [the new technologies] before that happens,” Ren, 75, said in a video interview from his Shenzhen office on Tuesday, the first he has given since the coronavirus outbreak shut down large parts of the world.
...
Huawei will step up its investment in research and development, with the 2020 budget surpassing US$20 billion, up from US$15 billion last year, according to Ren.
...
Huawei has resumed more than 90 per cent of its production and development operations, Ren said, adding that the company has also kept its supply chain mostly intact by helping provide its partners with protective gear to keep production going.
...
“New technologies such as tele-health, online learning and remote working have showed to the world their usefulness in preventing disease from spreading, as well as the importance of network connections,” Ren said. “Even when the West is feeling the mounting impact of the coronavirus, most of our projects can actually enhance their capabilities [during the outbreak]. There is a demand we need to meet.”

New architecture would enable cutting-edge technologies but western countries fear more control for state-run internet services

China has suggested a radical change to the way the internet works to the UN, in a proposal that claims to enable cutting-edge technologies such as holograms and self-driving cars but which critics say will also bake authoritarianism into the architecture underpinning the web.

The telecoms group Huawei, together with state-run companies China Unicom and China Telecom, and the country’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), jointly proposed a new standard for core network technology, called “New IP”, at the UN’s International Telecommunication Union (ITU).

The proposal has caused concerns among western countries including the UK, Sweden and the US, who believe the system would splinter the global internet and give state-run internet service providers granular control over citizens’ internet use. It has gained the support of Russia, and potentially Saudi Arabia, according to western representatives at the ITU. “Below the surface, there is a huge battle going on over what the internet will look like,” said a UK delegate to the ITU, who asked not to be named.

“You’ve got these two competing visions: one which is very free and open and . . . government hands-off . . . and one which is much more controlled and regulated by governments.”

Hint: google a firefox add-on called "Bypass Paywalls", download it to the firefox browser, then you can bypass "soft paywalls" and read the articles.

The current internet is not free. It's cotrolled by big corporations in cahoots with Western intelligence agencies. Of course they do not want to lose control and will oppose China's proposal.

Top 10 things China invented first.

You probably know that Chinese invented chopsticks but did you know they also invented the fork?

The Chinese invented paper, then printing, then after that, began to invent things you can do with paper such as paper money, the restaurant menu, printed the first book about holistic dieting, and finally the toilet paper.

Ancient Chinese also invented football, then known as Cuju.

Cuju is officially recognized by FIFA as the first sport that is recognizably as football, and consists of kicking a ball into a net without involving hands. With Cuju, Chinese also had the first professional football leagues and players in the world. Cuju had its peak in the Song Dynasty, but began a decline from the Ming Dynasty onwards.

So according to Ren Zhengfei , Huawei is operating over 90% capacity within 2 months of lockdown which is extremely high. Could be just a rough estimate. Would be interested to know what effects the pandemic have on Tech companies in Silicon valley.
