Thread: Quantum technologies

    Quantum technologies

    Holy carp....

    CETC’s work is part of a long-term effort by China to turn itself into a world leader in quantum technology. The country is providing generous funding for new quantum research centers at universities and building a national research center for quantum science that’s slated to open in 2020. It’s already leaped ahead of the US in registering patents in quantum communications and cryptography (see chart).

    Is it because while you are sitting around with your collective heads up your assess, in fear for your lives, clinging to your guns and screaming for someone to build a 12th century level defense to save you from poor brown people...our REAL competition is acting out on its plan to secure dominance in the next 50-100 years.

    While they are pouring money into R&D we are giving tax cuts to the uber wealthy so they can buy another house on the French Riviera.

    But then again...I guess it shouldn't come as a surprise that you don't understand....should it.

    Yep, no quantum R&D going on here, and certainly no espionage by the Chinese. None so blind as they they refuse to see. Whats funny is the you think two things cannot happen at once. Trump is engaging the Chinese, more effectively than any previous President in fact.

    But check the back for the fine print... "made in China" and they are most likely embedded with a GPS chip, and remote camera and listening devices... just like our electric toothbrushes and water piks...
    Imagine how much better America would be if you would simply don a pair a pants before sitting down at your Playskool My First 'Puter.

    Who cares about R&D? Just take what the "world leader" has developed, claim it as your own, and improve upon it. Patents and intellectual property don't mean a thing, right, China?

    They do plenty of both...they steal every imaginable bit of IP and technology that they can get their mitts on, invest stupendous amounts of money for reverse engineering, AND spend massive amounts of money on R&D..both applied and the ivory tower kind. Hard to compete with that over the long haul...we won't be able to.

    Is it ironic that you are speaking about the "wall" when the country in question actually built a wall large enough to be seen from space in order to secure it's borders.
    I am not a PREMO member and therefore, am not afforded the protections of such.
