    1. Of the big three vendors, only Huawei is not a member, citing its belief that Open RAN systems cannot perform as well as the company's proprietary systems

      It will be important to follow China's attitude towards ORAN. Currently, it seems ORAN is not as efficient as proprietary - but this is likely to change. At some point, Huawei model may become less 'sellable' (ultimately, operators around the world decide on profit, especially when difference is big). Will Chinese industry ultimately turn to ORAN to some extent? Also, will China try to 'emphasise' some of the weaknesses of ORAN, eg. through cyberattacks against its virtualised elements? ||JovanK|| ||sorina|| ||AndrijanaG||

      It remains to be seen if new regulation will affect big Chinese tech companies as it has been already done via anti-monooly regulation.

      The main question is how data and AI regulation will impact China's ambitious plans for AI developments.

    1. in 2022, China and USA will compete for dominance of their system. Who will win will be decided by:

      • success or failure of China approach of 'Zero COVID' or western approach 'to live with COVID).
      • dealing with huge power of tech companies: will it be resolved by government intervention (China) or market solutions (emergence of new companies as it is hopped in the USA).
      • China is facing bigger challenges with failure of Evergrande, a huge real-estabe developer. The Economist argue that that the rise of China's GDP will shrink to 5% getting closer to raise of the USA GDP.

      As they fight for dominance of their respective economic and policy models, they may cooperate on issues such as trade and technology, cyber-security, clean-technology, etc.

      However, it is not very likely that they will cooperate given the local pressure ahead of the US elections and internal instabilities in China.

      However, a good news is that military confrontation between China and USA is not likely to happen in 2022.

    1. Much of the other work involves setting standards for datasets that are not uniform between different entities and provinces. This would allow them to be more easily used on new data exchanges such as the one recently launched in Beijing that aims to allow companies to trade anonymous proprietary data -- effectively a pilot for a national data trading system

      Rules for the governance of data is a key motivation of the Chinese government crackdown on companies. While proposals to nationalise companies' datasets have met criticism, an idea that is gaining traction is the possibility to establish a trading system for data between companies. ||JovanK||
