The quantum computer “Jiuzhang II” came out, the new domestic special medicine was approved for the market, the manned spacecraft Shenzhou 12 and 13 were successfully launched, and the Chinese successfully entered their own space home… In 2021, a series of cutting-edge technologies in China The research results have left a strong mark on the world science and technology stage.

As China enters the stage of high-quality development, adhering to the implementation of the innovation-driven development strategy and self-reliance in science and technology have become the strategic support for national development. At the same time, in the context of an era in which technological innovation is closely linked with the destiny of the country, enterprises have also given full play to the kinetic energy of technological innovation, increased investment in scientific and technological research and development, and are committed to solving key technical problems in my country’s industries.

In this process, a large number of innovative enterprises with international competitiveness were born and continued to grow. Now, let us sort out how each company will exert its strength in the technology arena in 2021.

The connotation of the era of industrial development – self-reliance and self-improvement with high-level technology

Throughout 2021, artificial intelligence, network communications, smart life, chips, new energy and other fields have ushered in great development and breakthroughs. In various fields, those core technologies that cannot be exchanged in the market, cannot be bought with money, and must be innovated and developed by themselves have entered a new stage of self-reliance, self-improvement and independent innovation.

In the field of artificial intelligence, companies such as Huawei, Baidu, and Ali have focused on the development of large models. In the field of communications, China has officially entered a new cycle of comprehensive leadership in 5G networks. In the field of smart life, Haier Zhijia’s original technology leads the development of the industry, and based on the Zhijia brain, the smart home enters the “brain” era. In the field of chips, Huawei’s R&D team has successfully won the patent for graphene transistors, which is expected to allow Chinese chips to break the technology monopoly of European and American countries.

This also means that China has more and more “chips” in the global technological game.

Self-reliance and self-improvement with technology to solve the pain of “chip”

The core problem to be solved in China’s scientific and technological innovation is “lack of core and soul”, improving computing power and operating system capabilities. And making chips is the focus of technology research and development for China to break the monopoly of foreign countries. From the current point of view, enterprises and institutions including Huawei, BYD, and the Chinese Academy of Sciences have joined the ranks of core-making, and have produced results one after another.

As of now, China ranks first in the world in terms of patent applications in the graphene field. The Chinese Academy of Sciences has developed an 8-inch graphene single crystal wafer, which has entered the international leading level in the field of carbon-based semiconductors, and may continue to conduct research and development in the field of carbon-based chips in the later stage.

In addition, as a model of my country’s technological self-reliance and self-improvement, Huawei is also continuing to make efforts in the chip field. In the past ten years, Huawei has invested 394 billion yuan in research and development, which is more than the sum of the top 100 in China’s electronic technology industry. Judging from Huawei’s achievements in the chip field, in 2021, Huawei disclosed the graphene field-effect transistor patent for the first time. Huawei HiSilicon has used technology optimization capabilities to make China’s 14nm process chips basically get rid of American technology.

Leading by original technology, turning enterprise technology into industry technology

The purpose of scientific and technological research and development is not only to promote the high-quality development of the industry, but also to meet the people’s growing needs for a better life. In the context of the Internet of Things era, Haier Smart Home’s new digital transformation layout leads the industry.

Today, Haier Zhijia has created 178 original technologies that have a major impact on the industry. By applying original technology to product innovation, leading products including full-space fresh-keeping refrigerators, direct-drive washing machines, self-cleaning air conditioners, and anti-dry gas stoves have been born. These are all innovations and reconstructions of Haier Smart Home based on user needs, and are well-deserved “user technology”.

When the industry was still in the early stages of digital transformation exploration, Haier Zhijia had already taken the lead in changing the scene ecological brand. In addition, Haier Smart Home has also invented the most advanced smart home operating system – Smart Home Brain, which uses AI, IoT, big data and other advanced technologies to enable homes to think and learn, and to realize a smart home with a “brain”.

On January 17, at the Haier Group Innovation Annual Conference, Haier established the Science and Technology Committee, which will give full play to its open innovation system, the transformation of achievements from original technology to the formation of industrial chains, and the combination of technology and business incubation. Integrating innovation and other three major advantages, further strengthening the enterprise’s technological innovation capabilities, and concentrating on solving technical problems that plague the industry.

Energy competition, China’s new energy technology development has entered the fast lane

After high-level technological self-reliance and self-improvement, there is a struggle for energy. Energy, technology and users will form a mutually integrated coexistence relationship. In 2021, China will not only focus on new energy technology innovation, but also commit to building a green and low-carbon energy system under the goals of “carbon neutrality” and “carbon peak”.

Among them, in the field of new energy vehicle EV (pure electric), NIO and Zhiji will develop solid-state battery technology with a battery life of up to 1,000 kilometers, contributing new ideas to the vigorous development of industry technology. In addition, GAC Aian has also successively released the sponge silicon negative plate battery technology with a battery life of up to 1,000 kilometers, the (graphene) super fast charge battery technology that can be charged to 80% in 8 minutes, and the first realization of a ternary lithium battery that does not fire when needled. Advanced magazine battery safety system technology.

It can be said that on the new energy track, Chinese companies not only rely on the guidance of top-level strategies and their own efforts to achieve technological self-reliance and self-improvement, but also through continuous technological breakthroughs, they have reached a “high level” that cannot be ignored by the world. If you delve deeper into it, you will find that this is inseparable from the insistence of Chinese companies on independent self-research.

It can be seen that these “main forces” in the field of scientific and technological innovation promote the innovation enthusiasm and willingness of the industry, and at the same time build the sustainable development space for industrial ecology, developer ecology, and talent cultivation ecology. When the technological innovation of Chinese enterprises is still in progress, in an era of change, these “main forces” may be one of the most important development certainties.
