Is China Leading In Building An AI Driven Future With 5G?

5G will be the thing of the coming years. If I’m understanding what is really going on, 5G can actually allow the plethora of devices to communicate with each other effortlessly. A quick search on Google yields that 5G is 20 times faster than 4G. Whether this is true or not, one thing is true is that devices can speak to each other way faster than before. This opens up more innovation and infrastructure demands.


The video above shows that China is heading in the direction where more machines will replace humans in labor-intensive jobs. The day when we need an extra pair of human hands may be over sooner than later because smarter machines with AI capability can actually think for themselves and carry themselves in jobs effortlessly. Nonetheless, AI machines without 5G will be like a pony just starts learning how to walk.

5G will allow AI machines to transfer data fast and constantly so that things can speed up even more for decision making, planning, communication and so much more. I think with 5G, self-driving car technology is much more believable since you can have many self-driving cars detect each other easier at once with reliable faster 5G data transfer. Furthermore, smart highways and roads are going to get better and more fitting for self-driving cars because 5G will allow faster communication between the cars and the traffic infrastructures.

If you’re guessing I don’t know what I’m talking about, you may be right. After all, 5G is so new and I haven’t seen it firsthand or use it in real life. Nonetheless, according to the information I could Google, 5G is 20 times faster than 4G. Right now I’m using 4G on my smartphone but I think 4G is already quite fast. I can imagine how crazier it could get if I got 5G.

A day ago I briefly encountered an article which described how 5G could destroy the need for the cloud. Then I briefly read over the article’s comments that displeased how the article’s author was too lacking of knowledge since the commenters didn’t see how 5G could destroy the cloud since the cloud is about centralization of data storage.

Personally though, I don’t see how centralizing storage like the cloud could go away since data redundancy is always a priority, especially in the age of AI which is driven by data. Of course, all bets are off when AI becomes self-conscious since such AI needs no human data to drive its own logic. Until then, the cloud stays important.

I also think that 5G could allow the decentralization of networks to become a thing too! How come? Local devices and storages will be able to talk faster to any other storage and device across the world — destroying the needs of having to plan and engineer a network that is catering to the importance of distance. Although we already in the age of information where distance isn’t as relevant as the 19th century for communication, but 5G may make distance even more irrelevant when it comes to data communication.

Basically, instead of waiting for minutes for a movie to be downloaded onto your device, you may only have to wait for a few seconds to have your movie when you use the 5G network. 5G data can cross secure communication channel much faster and more reliable since faster data transfer allows faster data integrity check and whatnot. Perhaps, we could see shopping, banking, and other important financial related activities across the world on the world wide web to be more reliable and faster — better experience overall!

In summary, I think 5G will be awesome! I would love to see not only cellular network but also home network to be able to transfer speed that is as fast as 5G or better. This way, everything will be on the same pace and everyone will be using faster Internet speed. What’s not to like when you can get a whole 4K movie to be downloaded in a few seconds, right?

NVIDIA’s AI Generates Super Realistic Human Faces That You Cannot Differ From The Real Human Faces

NVIDIA’s AI is now able to generate countless realistic human faces, and you probably cannot tell if these faces are fake or real.  Watch the video right after the break, and you will see what I mean.  Basically, from the algorithm, the AI is able to morph a female face into a male face seamlessly.  Look closely, you can tell the latter does resemble the former a bit, but you can also tell it’s indeed a male face and not a female face.

This technology can definitely fake an image, video, and whatnot of a real human being.  With bad intention, someone could definitely frame a person in a sex scandal or whatnot.  So, how can you be sure that what your eyes are seeing is actually a factual event?

Futuristic Traveling: Traveling With Style In A Volvo 360c?

Some supercars of today cost more than a couple cool million dollars to own, but how comfortable could you be in such cars when you got a Volvo 360c?  Unfortunately, this is only a concept so far, I think!  Nonetheless, I hope something like this could come sooner rather than later!  After all, I hate driving between states and prefer playing video games, watching movies, and listening to music while on move.  Often time I could find myself preferring to sleep than drive while on the move from one point to another point.  At the moment, driving means seriously limiting yourself while on the move.  Your eyes gotta be on the road 99.9% of the time to avoid any serious but avoidable accident so you could make to your destination safely!  I think something like Volvo 360c could definitely allow me to avert my eyes away from the traffic and allow me to concentrate on something else that I could enjoy while on the go.  Check out the video right after the break to see how cool a Volvo 360c could be!

China Develops New Quantum Chip, Boosting Quantum Computing To The Next Level!

Just recently I’d read somewhere online that Quantum computers can hack current encryption technology almost instantly or instantly.  Furthermore, perhaps Lattice Field encryption could confuse Quantum computers somewhat, but I’m not sure how resistant Lattice Field encryption method is when it’s up against Quantum computers.  This means any organization with a powerful quantum computer can hack just about anybody’s encrypted files and encrypted hardware.

If I’m not wrong and up to date, each Qubit can represent both negative and positive states at the same time.  Basically, the traditional binary bit is either 0 or 1, but Qubit can be in both states at the same time.  Now, multiply the numbers of Qubit and you can have a really powerful Quantum computer which can calculate things that would take the traditional computers billions of years to do so.

By the way, take my information with the grain of salt because I’m also too green with Quantum computing.  Anyway, just in, Chinese researchers just reveal that they have developed a new type of Quantum chip which will boost Quantum computing to the next level yet.  Check out the video right after the break.

Will AI Be Used In Dealmaking Soon?

In the very near future, when Artificial Intelligence is more capable, will governments around the world readily deploy AI to do things such as drafting a free trade agreement?  As I’m watching the news clip on YouTube, and this person states that an FTA between two parties is going to take a very long time, possibly years, to complete since complex deals could be involved with complex, new technology and so forth.  This is true as we’re human and it takes time for us humans to digest and make sense of things before we could readily draw upon an agreement of something.  For AI though, things could be fast-track in milliseconds, I assume.

I guess when such a time comes, whichever country has a more advanced AI could get an upper hand in an FTA deal, assuming that each country won’t be able to replicate the other country’s AI tech.  Obviously, if a country’s technology is so easily being stolen, then their future AI tech is not going to be able to be kept as a secret.  What’s worse is that a competitor could replicate and improve on the tech to leave the original creator in the dust.  As the former dilly-dally without any progress, the latter may also be able to figure out the flaws within the former’s AI tech, allowing the latter to exploit the flaw to squeeze out an advance in a deal such as an FTA deal between two trading countries.

Let’s humor ourselves and imagine how a scenario would unfold when a country without AI tech is engaging in a fictitious FTA deal with a country that got a really advanced AI tech.  Obviously, no AI secrets would be included in the deal!  I suppose the country without AI tech would look at the FTA draft that they’d taken years to mold without any confidence when they propose the terms in the FTA meeting with the counterpart that got an advanced AI tech as the assistant in the dealmaking.  Meanwhile, the side with advanced AI assistant would probably have already made a decision on how to negotiate the terms beyond the first draft that the side without advanced AI assistant is proposing.

I think the side without advanced AI assistant would probably be even more cautious in coming to an agreement with the terms that are being proposed by the side with an advanced AI assistant, knowing that the advanced AI assistant would probably have given better advice to the owner of the AI assistant.  Perhaps, the side with advanced AI assistant could use the AI to come up with terms that are so subtle that allow the counterpart to not being able to see the true meaning of being taken advantages of.  Would this allow the FTA deal to fast-track in real time?

Chinese Self-Driving Trucks Successfully Tested On Highway

China’s leading truck manufacturing, FAW Jiefang, just finished testing three self-driving trucks on the highway.  Basically, this is a sign that in the future we will see fleets of self-driving delivery trucks, taxi cabs, and rental cars everywhere, and people who use these vehicles will not need a middleman human factor to be in the way.  For an example, owners of businesses can deliver products between warehouses and to customers through self-driving delivery trucks.  Of course, the owners of these companies can also stuff robotic laborers inside self-driving delivery trucks to carry stuff back and forth between the trucks and the premise that the products need to go to or to be picked up from.  The self-driving rental car factor will also be interesting.  Imagine you never have to own a car again, but you get to rent the nicest cars in town at the cheapest cost and on the top of this you don’t even have to drive the car itself (duh!  self-driving man).  You can just enjoy your ride in style and let the self-driving supercar takes you around town.  Imagine, when such a car gets into an accident, you don’t even have to worry about the insurance cost, because you’re not the one who is doing the actual driving.  Anyhow, sorry for the rant as my imagination took over.  Back to the main topic, check out the video right after the break to see Chinese self-driving trucks in action.
