Here’s Great Tip: How to Win the Technology Race with China | Anja Manuel | TEDxPaloAlto

Here is Something You Should See…

It’s time we acknowledge that China systematically extracts the most advanced technology from the West. It does so legally, by mining open source databases, investing in our most advanced companies, and illegally, through cybertheft and spying. How we choose to react will define our future and that of the world. Instead of closing our own system, we can and must compete, and in some cases, even cooperate. We need a new era of public-private collaboration that unites American society and our allies behind a common goal of global technological progress. This talk will show us how.

  1. China have "107 academic" institutions ranked in the "Top 500 Nature Index Academic 2020" (ranking only by academic high quality research )

    By comparaison (so you understand the scope of China real scientific "power" ) :

    – US have 133

    – Germany 43

    – UK 34

    – India 20

    – Japan 18

    – France 14

    – South Korea 13

  2. The main reason why China made faster progress in tech, compared to some other countries, is that China invests more money and more engineer working hours in R&D. If technology progress can be simply achieved by "a government playing unfair" or "a government sending spies", U.S. people can stop worrying as their government is really good at it. The Crypto AG story is a great example.
