A discussion at the Emerging Technology Forum.
Experts call for a more open mindset towards open data during the Pujiang Innovation Forum.
The “Shanghai Initiative for Scientific Data Exchange” was published on Wednesday at the Emerging Technology Forum, a major event at the Pujiang Forum, which called for the promotion of data exchange, data-based innovation and management. of data.
“We should create leading and authoritative scientific data platforms to promote Shanghai to become a scientific data center,” said Zhong Dongting, an official of the Shanghai Science and Technology Commission. “We should also have a strong mindset towards data openness and play an active role in international communications. In addition, we should embrace the development of global innovation and make Shanghai a window of scientific data resources. world “.
The initiative, published by the Shanghai R&D Public Services Platform Administrative Center and the Shanghai Science and Technology Innovation Resource Center, has been echoed by many universities, research institutions and other innovators in the field. city.
Signature of the “Shanghai Initiative for the Exchange of Scientific Data”.
China Polar Research Institute, Fudan University Brain-Inspired Intelligence Science and Technology Institute, International Institute of Human Phenomena (Shanghai), Engineering Center Renewable Energies of Shanghai Ocean University and various institutes of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, such as the Shanghai Astronomical Observatory, the Computer Network Information Center and the Center of Excellence in Molecular Cell Sciences have signed the initiative.
Some partner to share innovative data and applications.
Wang Ye, deputy director of the Shanghai Science and Technology Commission, said that scientific data has become a key strategic resource for scientific research and that Shanghai is working to speed up the drafting of a data management system. scientific.
Wang Ruidan, deputy director of the National Science and Technology Infrastructure, said Shanghai is expected to accelerate the construction of next-generation digital infrastructure, build data center clusters and pioneer the open exchange of scientific data.
Zhu Yue, CEO of the Shanghai Science and Technology Innovation Resource Center, said the center offers services from data exchange to the transformation of achievements.
“We will work to build a regional, comprehensive and international scientific data center to support the city’s digital transformation,” Zhu said.
Guo Huadong, a CAS scholar, said the world has witnessed an explosive rise in data.
About ten years ago, the United States and Western Europe had almost half of the world’s data, and China’s data volume accounted for only 13%. But today, it’s a different story. China is No. 1, followed by Europe and the Middle East, Japan and the US.
“It shows China’s growing development in science and technology as well as in economics,” Gue said.
According to Liu Liehong, deputy minister of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, China has taken the lead in the big data sector after years of effort.
The latest figures show that the scale of the Chinese big data industry recorded a compound growth rate of more than 30 percent during the 13th five-year period (2016-20), and the scale of the industry exceeded one trillion. of yuan in 2020.
In addition, China has built more than 819,000 5G base stations, more than 70 percent of the world’s total. More than 310 million mobile phone terminals have joined the 5G network, more than 80% of the world’s total.
Liu revealed the figures at the opening ceremony of the China International Big Data Industry Expo held in Guiyang, Guizhou Province on May 26.
“China’s big data industry will enter a new stage with integrated innovation, rapid development, in-depth applications and structure optimization,” he said.
