Western democracies are losing the global technological competition, including the race for scientific and research breakthroughs, and the ability to retain global talent—crucial ingredients that underpin the development and control of the world’s most important technologies, including those that don’t yet exist.

Our research reveals that China has built the foundations to position itself as the world’s leading science and technology superpower, by establishing a sometimes stunning lead in high-impact research across the majority of critical and emerging technology domains.

China’s global lead extends to 37 out of 44 technologies that ASPI is now tracking, covering a range of crucial technology fields spanning defence, space, robotics, energy, the environment, biotechnology, artificial intelligence (AI), advanced materials and key quantum technology areas.1 The Critical Technology Tracker shows that, for some technologies, all of the world’s top 10 leading research institutions are based in China and are collectively generating nine times more high-impact research papers than the second-ranked country (most often the US). Notably, the Chinese Academy of Sciences ranks highly (and often first or second) across many of the 44 technologies included in the Critical Technology Tracker. We also see China’s efforts being bolstered through talent and knowledge import: one-fifth of its high-impact papers are being authored by researchers with postgraduate training in a Five-Eyes country.2 China’s lead is the product of deliberate design and long-term policy planning, as repeatedly outlined by Xi Jinping and his predecessors.3

A key area in which China excels is defence and space-related technologies. China’s strides in nuclear-capable hypersonic missiles reportedly took US intelligence by surprise in August 2021.4

In America we are squabbling over whether the Left is correct, or the Right is correct. Instead of working hard towards a better future.

The power of vision.

One advantage the west has is imagination, as gay as that sounds.

Went back to university in 2018 to study more technological design areas and the professor was Chinese. He implored the students from there (one of which was in my group and I'm 99% certain was a spy) that their government has bled out creative-thinking in the culture, leading to a lack of innovation. That's why they have to steal everything.

Congratulations on tossing up the batboy signal. Let’s see if he responds.

In the past week our media here has been talking constantly about war with China. It feels creepy as fuck. People say "oh, clickbait!" but it feels like it's going beyond that. It's like something is being brewed.

Not a lot of evidence for Chinese technological innovation though.

They seem to have the creation of viruses dialed in.

That would be the US funded Wuhan Lab's "not real gain of function" research?

That's US State Dept NGO bullshit.

The lead is a physio who became a "data scientist".

Ffs RUS has an almost entirely indigenous aeronautics industry. US hitches rides to the space station with RUS. And RUS has true hypersonics and the S-500. It also churns out Borei class subs. And the newest Su's are better than the hangar queen f-35.

US leads in nano-tech by far. And psy-ops. And bio/bacterial warfare because no one else is as psychopathic as our neocon and neolib "elite". Not even ISR. And maybe MAYBE nuclear launches from subs.

China out manufactures the whole world. And cheat like animals in academia.

Who gives a fuck about published peer reviewed "high quality" papers?
