China using tech industry to respond to COVID-19 Beijing is calling on China’s tech companies to respond to the COVID-19 outbreak with their products Many of its tech giants have already done what they can by using autonomous vehicles to deliver items to medical professionals across the country They have also been using drones with thermal cameras to determine who has been infected by the virus In terms of the development of a vaccine, tech companies have also offered their computer power to find a cure faster China has recorded over 78,000 cases of the novel coronavirus and over 2,700 deaths Fighting the virus is now considered a national priority for China Chinese President Xi Jinping said earlier this month that fighting the epidemic needs “the support of science and technology” The president also proposed the expansion of online shopping options and emphasis on clinical research The former would be used for the prevention of the spread of COVID-19, while the latter would be used in the search of a cure Though tech may not completely save the country from COVID-19, it can definitely make life easier for those in affected areas Millions of China’s residents are not leaving their homes in fear of infection, so automated food delivery and mobile instead of cash payments could ease some of their worries Food delivery service Meituan Dianping has begun using robots to transport food from restaurants’ kitchens to delivery men to customers Chinese online retailer JDcom has used self-driving robots as a way to transport items to medical workers in Wuhan, COVID-19’s ground zero The robots travel only 600 meters, but that’s already reportedly made a difference Shanghai startup TMIRob has also been sending disinfectant-spraying robots to Wuhan hospitals Beijing has invested billions of dollars into technological innovation over the years, in the hopes of advancing their progress in artificial intelligence and autonomous vehicles They have been doing this to compete with California’s Silicon Valley, a global center for tech development China began paying attention to their tech industry in the 1980s It was then that they announced that 168 zones in their country would be “high-tech development zones” for consumer electronics and other tech sectors These zones have since grown into a $4
