Alcuni temi dal diario di oggi:

 

– Cina, leader nell’intelligenza artificiale con l’obiettivo dell’autosufficienzaTop officials from China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) said the country will promote new emerging industry clusters, including the layout of industry chains in cutting-edge sectors such as artificial intelligence (AI) and quantum communication, to ensure the resilience of the industry and supply chains of the world’s second-largest economy (Global Times)

– India e Singapore lavorano per collegare i loro sistemi di pagamento digitaleIndia and Singapore are working to link their digital payments systems to enable “instant, low-cost fund transfers,” in a major push to disrupt the cross-border transactions between the two nations that amounts to over $1 billion each year. The project to link India’s Unified Payments Interface (UPI) and Singapore’s PayNow is targeted for operationalization by July 2022, both nation’s central banks said on Tuesday. Users on either of the systems will be able to make transactions to one another without having to sign up to the second platform, the banks added (TechCrunch)

– Per un 5G made in USA senza HuaweiNokia recently won a 5G contract with U.S. Cellular, the fourth-largest wireless provider in the United States, another step in building out American 5G without Chinese telecom Huawei. Yet, for all the noise about 5G, cloud, and other “emerging” technologies, the internet still vitally depends on a far-less-flashy infrastructure — submarine cables that haul internet traffic along the ocean floor (Defense One)

– Regolazione cinese delle società di piattaforme digitali e la sfida all’OccidenteAt a time when the United States and its Western allies are struggling to determine the proper oversight of digital platform companies, the Chinese government is moving decisively ahead with its own plan. That China has designed regulations for these digital platform companies to stimulate competition and innovation should send a message to Western policymakers (Brookings)

– La terza rivoluzione nel warfareFirst there was gunpowder. Then nuclear weapons. Next: artificially intelligent weapons (Defense One)
