Dr. Clemens von Goetze, Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany in China introduced the development of the IoT in Germany in his speech. He said that China’s development is very rapid and efficient, and it has been recognized by the world in the development of digital IoT. The economies of China and Germany can be closely integrated with common development, and can jointly promote the development of the IoT in the world.
In the keynote report, He Xuming, Chairman of the world Internet of things Convention, reviewed the past of the previous conferences, looked at the current status of the IoT development, and looked forward to the future development of IoT in the world. He introduced the World IoT architecture system and the new economic system composed of 17 industrial fields, covering the industrial IoT, IoT energy, IoT financial insurance, IoT transportation and intelligent connected vehicles, IoT healthcare, IoT smart city, IoT artificial intelligence, aerospace, military technology, logistics, cultural tourism, ecological environment, etc. He pointed out that the current development of the IoT is in an emerging stage.
While promoting the intelligence of the digital economy and the progress of society, IoT has promoted the social change and industrial revolution of capacity transformation. The life, production and work of the masses are moving towards an intelligent era and advancing by leaps and bounds. The commercial use of the 5G network provides a technical guarantee for the IoT, an ecological network that integrates digitalization and intelligentization with the interaction and sharing of people and things. 5G installed starters for the construction of the IoT industry economic market, and the World IoT has brought a rare opportunity for a fair and just world economy. China accounts for about a quarter of the global output value of IoT and the global output value of IoT is expected to reach 30 trillion US dollars in 2025.
In his speech, Andreas Dripke, Global Chairman of Diplomatic Council, pointed out that 5G is not only a matter of China or Germany, but a global matter. The world that meets the needs of the people cannot operate without the IoT, especially the Internet of everything. Everything can be connected and related through the IoT when and where, thus creating a huge economic market.
Shi Dinghuan, former Counsellor of Counsellors’ Office of the State Council, former Secretary-General of the Ministry of Science and Technology, said in his speech that since its inception, the convention has become a global leader in the new IoT economy and has created practical contributions to the world IoT and industrial economic system. The IoT is a very important system engineering, both with software and hardware, involving various fields such as public life, digital production, national social governance and other fields. The barriers and boundaries of the original industries in the past should be broken down and organized according to the system engineering of the world society.
Zhu Yu, Vice President of China Information Industry Association mentioned in his speech that the business model of the IoT has been further explored and expanded; the laws and regulations of the IoT need to be improved urgently, and a number of leading enterprises of the IoT economy will be produced. The IoT in China and the world can achieve further leapfrog development.
Ni Guangnan, academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, delivered a keynote speech entitled “Embracing the New Trend of Open Source Chips”. He believes that in the era of 5G and the IoT, the new generation of information technology, especially the core technology represented by chips, will have new innovations. The threshold of chip innovation is relatively high, and the open source software, as the main Internet of things investment platform and new business model, will help to upgrade the chip. The new information technology represented by the IoT will be a very favorable place for the development of RISC, and the emergence of RISC-V will greatly reduce the threshold of chip innovation. In the future development of CPU architectures, he predicted that RISC-V might appear in the future and be widely used in all fields except ARM and X86 architectures. He also analyzed the trend of the development and application of the IoT and chips, and the growth of the technology architecture in China, which is about to become the world center of the global chip industry.
The first World IoT Operating System was launched at the Convention; Shen Dong, Director of Connecting System Institute of World IoT Research Institute, demonstrated the Operating System. He introduced that the World IoT operating system mainly solves the complex problem of IoT connection devices. The connected operating system is able to connect all the systems, platforms, cloud and application platforms of all industries in the world, so that all things can be truly connected. This operating system can empower various fields, support social networking, and can be networked on demand. In the process of networking, all the data interaction is very fast that it has formed the main connected operating system of the World IoT.
Zhang Liming, General Manager of China Hualu Group, introduced in detail the “data lake” based on optical storage technology, which has four characteristics of low energy consumption, high security, large capacity and long life. He pointed out that Hualu is mainly engaged in the development and utilization of “water resources” in five aspects, transportation, safety, culture, health and environmental protection. Other applications are all crowd innovation. In the “data lake”, there is an operation center, as well as a maker space; the Data Lake Industry Alliance now has more than 390 companies.
The convention entered an important stage of high-end dialogue, experts and scholars, and representatives of enterprises from the French Foundation Prospective and Innovation, Switzerland, ISO/IEC IoT Architecture International Standards Project Team, Gome Intelligent Technology, iFLYTEK, GSMA, China Blockchain Application Center, British Standards Institution carried out fierce collisions and exchanges and discussions on “Promoting the Large-scale Development of 5G and IoT, the trend of integration of IoT and Blockchain, and promoting the actual industrialization of the future IoT”, showing their unique insights and opinions, and have arrived at the new economic strategic positioning of the IoT with innovation, sharing and win-win.
The project cooperation signing ceremony was held at the convention. China Hualu Group, Yingshan County Government of Sichuan province, Hainan Zhongdong Group, and Beijing Cross-Straits Financial Institute signed a cooperation agreement with the World Internet of Things Convention and agreed to jointly build the IoT demonstration zone to create an economic model for China and the world, and to provide reference to the IoT economic model for countries around the world.
The reception of “Reading China to Share the World” sponsored by Hainan Zhongdong Group brought the convention to the climax of joy. Applause, cheers and songs continued throughout the reception.
