Ren Zhengfei in The Economist: We’re on the eve of explosive innovation

We firmly believe that in the next 20 or 30 years, human society will inevitably enter the intelligent society. Today, human society is on the eve of the outbreak of new theories and technologies. There is great potential for development, but there is also a lot of uncertainty. Many problems remain, but open innovation is the best solution.

Ren Zhengfei in The Economist: We're on the eve of explosive innovation

After the electronic technology to 3 nanometers, 1 nanometers, will not stop the development of the failure of Moore’s Law, will continue to move forward, but the realization of the form of progress is not yet known. We had hoped to do this through graphene, but it is not clear to this day; genetic technology must have made a big breakthrough in these two or three decades, which will promote life sciences, biotechnology, nanomedicine… The great progress that has brought about changes in mankind is still unknown; molecular technology can be used to synthesize unprecedented materials, new materials and new technologies are emerging, we are not clear at all now; artificial intelligence will be fully applied in the meantime, the promotion and improvement of social progress, the form of increase in wealth, and we cannot yet conceive. Quantum computing in this period of breakthrough popularity, bringing the explosion of information flow, the impact, although imagined, but absolutely not what we imagine;

Advances in single-discipline technology have given us new opportunities, and the huge shock waves generated by breakthroughs in the interdisciplinary field are even more impressive; any innovation is accompanied by an explosion in information traffic, and the storage, transmission, and processing of these super-large amounts of data will be a need that cannot be predicted. What is certain, however, is that more and more data will be stored on the cloud and processed on the cloud. How does flood-like data divert?

In short, we don’t know what the social structure of the future will be like, how to adapt to it, and how to harness it. All kinds of new ideas and new technologies are on the rise. Interdisciplinary “chain response” is a new feature of this wave of technological innovation, for example, information technology has become the basis for scientific research and innovation in all fields, just as information technology has become the basis of all industries.

To embrace a new era, the world must encourage freedom of thought.

It has been made clear that we need to strengthen the infrastructure of the information society. There are two parts to the foundation: the hard foundation (the technology itself), the soft foundation (the rules required to apply the technology, the skills that are required to apply the technology…). )。 Hard foundation, especially the construction of optical mesh and 5G, as well as the future 6G application. AI relies on a range of information technology, and without a sustained breakthrough in infrastructure, it is difficult to progress, just as cars can’t run fast without a highway. Soft foundation involves talent, supervision and so on, but the key is talent, the world to meet this new era, we must develop education, in the improvement of the cultural quality of the whole nation on the basis of full academic freedom, freedom of thought, training a full range of talent.

Follow the data

Standing at the door of an intelligent society, we look to see what role we will play in this new social structure in 20 or 30 years. We imagine the huge flood of information, and the diversion of the huge flood of information is our company’s strategic positioning for the next 20 to 30 years. Diversion of distribution, storage and processing of data traffic is our strategic direction, but also our long-term direction of struggle, the struggle must be in the general direction of continuity, at different stages should be adaptable.

A flower alone is not spring, so colorful information society, no flowers are impossible, we must adhere to open cooperation and win-win situation, adhere to the world’s companies to build ecology, sharing ecology, unswervingly embrace globalization.
