Chen Gen: only by saying goodbye to the boastful metaverse can we move towards the real metaverse

Wen / Chen Gen

“The ultimate demand of metaverse is basic computing power,” Wang Rui, chairman of Intel China, said in an interview with Phoenix cover. This is the typical attitude of American hard core technology giants in dealing with metaverse. They do not talk loudly and blindly talk about business. Instead, they are very pragmatic to think about the position of their enterprises in it and the technical direction that can be solved and broken through from the technical level of the underlying industry.

When Wang Rui, chairman of Intel China, talked about metaverse, Said: “Everyone’s metaverse blueprint is different. The core demand is basic computing power. So I say that the world needs us, which is the biggest good news. The worst thing is that the world doesn’t need you, and today I can’t see any reason why the world doesn’t need Intel. What we need to consider next is how to increase investment to better adapt to it Metaverse’s exponential growth demand for computing power and connectivity in the future. For us, opportunities are everywhere, and the key is how to seize them. “

It can be said that so far, Intel is the most typical example of helping metaverse, including the management of twin venues in our Olympic Games. This achievement is also listed in the scientific and technological heritage of the Olympic Games.

In the case of the epidemic, it is almost impossible for employees from all over the world to arrange and coordinate on various venues and racetracks. Through Intel’s digital twin technology, a virtual venue can be built, and the staff can provide real-time scene design services at the remote end, such as the layout of ski trails and even the lens of Gu Ailing’s high platform jump, which are designed through the virtual world.

This actually formed the original metaverse, connecting virtual and real. What can this technology develop into? I think the future is promising.

Why should I quote Wang Rui, chairman of Intel China, in an interview with Phoenix about metaverse, in order to let you understand the attitude of these technology giants in the United States towards technology. I can make it very clear that if China’s technology industry wants to be truly strong, it must seriously and modestly learn from these technology giants in the United States, including Intel, Qualcomm, apple, Microsoft and so on.

For example, Intel will not follow the coax to talk about the future business form of metaverse, nor will they blindly advocate it. Their failure to participate in these advocacy does not mean that these companies do not understand the cutting-edge development trends, but that they are very pragmatic in research and development, thinking about these new future technology directions, what kind of needs do the core and underlying technologies have, and what kind of needs do they put forward for technology, from the perspective of their own enterprises, What kind of technology is needed to establish core competitiveness at the bottom core technology level.

Intel’s core technology is processor. From the perspective of its core technology advantages, we can see that Intel’s understanding of metaverse industry is very pragmatic, that is, how to solve the problem of computing power. No matter whether this metaverse is still called metaverse or some other terms in the future, it can be seen from the application level of digital twin technology that the future technology must develop in the direction of mixing virtual and reality, and realizing the superposition and integration of interconnection, interworking and interaction between virtual and real world. This is a necessary trend derived from the advanced development of science and technology.

Then, when such a future lifestyle of human society appears and comes, the generation of data must grow in a geometric multiple based on today. The demand for data processing capacity, that is, computing power, will mention a computing requirement that we can’t realize today. However, this super computing power must be the core of the future. Without the existence of super computing power technology, it will not be able to support the coming of the mixed society of virtual and reality in the future.

This shows us that in the United States, such technology enterprises represented by hard core technology giants such as Intel, apple, Google and Microsoft treat the technology industry with a very low-key and pragmatic style, silently focus on their own technological advantages, make development and breakthroughs from the technical level of the underlying industry, and firmly grasp the voice of the underlying core technology. The other is the flickering “technology” companies represented by Facebook and Zuckerberg, which mainly advocate superficial business. They gain competitive advantage at the commercial level by packaging various concepts.

At present, our country is facing a bad atmosphere, that is, too many Zuckerberg style and types, the so-called “technology” companies, which are mainly advocating and impetuous. If our country wants to really establish a voice at the level of science and technology industry, and to really move from a manufacturing power to a manufacturing power, we need to change and guide from the level of public opinion and abandon the advocacy atmosphere of Zuckerberg format. Instead, we should shift from surface application to focusing on the construction of underlying industrial technology.

What we lack today is not companies like Facebook, nor companies like Alibaba, Tencent and pinduoduo. What we lack is companies like Huawei. What we lack is a number of low-key and pragmatic hard core technology companies like Intel, apple, Google and Microsoft. To change the wind of technology boasting, we need to learn from Intel’s attitude towards metaverse.
