When you sit at home and use your mobile phone to download all the books in the New York Library in just 20 seconds, is it necessary to go to the library in the future? You will ask a key question: when will it be achieved? It may be 2030.
Bloomberg reported yesterday that Haim Israel, head of global thematic investment research at Bank of America, recently announced a list of themes called “moonshots” in the technology sector, indicating that investors should seize the next technological revolution. So as not to miss the next Amazon or Apple, the report puts forward 14 areas. The first place is the 6G communication network that instantly plugs the entire library into your mobile phone. The second place is the emotional artificial intelligence (Emotional artificial intelligence), a more advanced AI technology like the plot of “Smart Lover”. . Note that with regard to 6G and the new generation of AI technology, it is the key project that determines the Sino-US technology competition.
According to the 48th “Statistical Report on China’s Internet Development Status” released by the China Internet Network Information Center last month: “Currently, the number of global patent applications in the field of 6G communication technology exceeds 38,000, and Chinese patent applications account for 35% (more than 13,000). Item), ranking first in the world.” In addition, it is gratifying that our AI also has R&D advantages: “The global artificial intelligence patent applications are close to 390,000, and China accounts for 75% of the global total, ranking second in the United States. 8.2 times.” The report pointed out that the field of intelligent manufacturing is the main direction of “Made in China 2025”, and it is the general trend and core of the future development of manufacturing.
According to the above figures, the next Amazon or Apple is likely to be the first to run out in China, and Huawei is the most popular one. Recently, Huawei’s rotating chairman Xu Zhijun proposed that “6G will be put on the market around 2030”. Then, Huawei published a transcript of Ren Zhengfei’s speech with scientists, experts, and interns at the Huawei Academia Sinica Innovation Pioneer Symposium on August 2. It is titled “Ren and Mountain Generations of Talented People”, and the most noticeable part is Ren Zhengfei’s talk about 6G.
“4G is a data capability, and 5G is a capability for the interconnection of all things. Will 6G display new capabilities and have unlimited imagination? Radio waves have two functions: one is communication, and the other is detection. We used to It only uses communication capabilities, not detection and perception capabilities. This may be a new direction in the future.” It takes 20 seconds to download a library with 6G high-speed bandwidth. However, Ren Zhengfei pointed out that there is still 6G detection and perception in the future development space. Capability, communication and perception integration, “This is a larger scenario than communication, and a new network capability. We study 6G to take precautions and seize the patent position. Don’t wait until the day when 6G is really useful. We don’t have patents. Subject to others.”
Ericsson CEO Borje Ekholm (Borje Ekholm) pointed out that because China ranks first in the number of 6G patent applications, it is impossible for the United States to bypass China in the development of 6G. If the United States wants to go its own way and split 6G into two sets of communication standards, can it? Bao Yikang said: “Whether it is 5G or 6G, it is difficult to achieve a complete division of communication technology. No country can get rid of the patents of other countries. It is very difficult to develop independently in the field of communication.”

In addition to accelerating 6G research and development, the United States has wooed other countries to impose sanctions on China and exclude Huawei from the standards of the so-called “Democratic Science and Technology Alliance”. It is wishful thinking. Ren Zhengfei saw through the United States, the United States is not the future standard. “We used to emphasize standards because we are behind the times. People already have a lot of stock on the Internet. If we don’t integrate into standards, we can’t connect with others. But when I lead the world, don’t be restrained by this and dare to go. In my own way, dare to create de facto standards and let others connect with us.”
The United States can decouple from China or continue to sever any technical relationship with Huawei. However, the United States needs to overthrow 6G and start over again from beginning to end. Then, it is done. The United States cannot access the world’s largest 6G. Market China, can you say it?
