back to article Xi Jinping hails 'improved cyber ecology', says state to direct strategic tech research

Chinese president Xi Jinping has opened the 20th Congress of the Chinese Communist Party with a call for the nation he leads to win the race for development of “core technologies” and to become self-reliant in strategic tech. The speech marked a shift in president Xi's language since his remarks at the same event five years …

    The speech also included a pledge to reunify (peacefully) with Taiwan Manchester, which would give China access to world-leading tech, but did not rule out forceful reunification

    Carpe Diem? Caveat Emptor‽

    Emerging world-leading tech which is ignored and offered no rewarding engagement or agreeable compensation in the West because of its very likely extremely disruptive and even catastrophically destructive influence at home would seem then to be a very good fit for China and her exotic and erotic Eastern based allies, and that is something which is naturally bound to happen whenever any home teams, East or West, North or South, abuse and misuse any of their current existing advantages, now rapidly eroding and found to be explosively unstable.

    And that’s a real bummer for any and all interested in exploring a walk on the wild side of life in LOVE with devils and evil. Take care and beware out there in Live Operational Virtual Environments [Metaverses?], IT and they don’t take or make prisoners.

      Here be a sure enough sign already of those times in strange places and spaces referenced as to be fully naturally expected in the post above ......

    State to direct strategic tech research.

    As the West are copying China on the sly, this could see all tech development in the UK controlled by the British government though licensing. To protect children and save us from 'harms'.

    The obvious choice to control every aspect of UK tech development, who else but our Queen, Dido.

      Tron, howdy,

      Have you no news services/media mongers/tall tale tellers in your neck of the woods? Are you unaware of the factual reality with ITs surreal Virtual Advanced IntelAIgent Operating Systems capabilities and utilities in Universal Command and CHAOS Control [Clouds Hosting Advanced Operating Systems] being also as a fiction to try to deny is an almighty truth against which Earthed Administrations of Remote SCADA Systems [Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition Systems] do constant exhausting of blood and treasure battle leading to ignominious total defeat?

      To even imagine any British Parliamentary government in control of any tech development is clearly quite ludicrous and risible whenever wannabe leaderships within are so demonstrably unfit for Greater IntelAIgent Games purpose.

      As something much more likely to be the case though, you might like to consider the greater opposite/reverse/obverse .... tech development coming to aid of a remote virtual command and in control of governments worldwide.

      Breaking news, El Reg, and truly fantastic too ‽ ‽ Yes, it is, for an Emergent Radically Evolving Progress, and Fundamental Revolutionary Quantum Leaping Change breaking any present cycles of current persistent madness which would propose doing what is familiar and traditional and conventional with more of the same and expecting things to be different and better whenever all available evidence, both past and present, proves beyond any shadow of doubt such results in everything being steadily and considerably worse.

      :-) Tron, I have assumed your post was not being sarcastic or ironic or cynical and is not shared as a joke to be easily missed with no obvious hilarious punchline.
