  • Offers an in-depth look at how China uses technology to support its rise in the world order
  • Includes first-hand accounts of Cloud mega-projects in the Chinese government and enterprises
  • Explores China's strategy to achieve technological dominance through domestic innovation with companies such as Huawei
In twenty years, China's expenditures for research and development will surpass those of the United States, a trend that epitomizes nationalistic ambitions to regain intellectual prestige for a country that had once invented paper and gunpowder. Tens of billions of dollars have been poured into a new technology superstructure as China seeks to transform its economy from a crippling reliance on manufacturing outsourcing. Cloud computing represents a dynamic foundation for the new superstructure that can foster the growth of a socio-capitalistic ecosystem, creating a new class of green exports in the form of highly sophisticated software and services. With Cloud computing, China is seeking to establish a new Silk Road, where its cultural products will once again change the world.
