HARBIN, Aug. 13 (Xinhua) — At a restaurant in Phuket, Thailand, 5G cloud-based multitasking robots drive customers to their tables to order and then serve them food.

These robots are made by CloudMinds Robotics, a Shanghai-based tech company that started cooperation with the Thai digital service provider in 2019.

CloudMinds Robotics products have replaced human teams in security patrol, hotel front desk, caregiving, offline retail, temperature measurement and disinfection roles over the past three years, and are venturing into other markets in Asia and the Middle East.

“In response to overseas demands, we continue to improve our technical merits and application capabilities, intelligently facilitating the transformation of local tourism through advanced technologies such as 5G,” said Huang Xiaoqing, Founder of the company at the 2022 5G Global Convention. concluded Friday in Harbin, capital of northeast China’s Heilongjiang Province.

5G mobile communication technologies underpin the digitized, connected and intelligent transformation of economies and societies under the new round of technological revolution.

After three years of official commercialization, China has become the strongest supporter and advocate of 5G. It has built some 1.85 million 5G base stations supporting more than 450 million end users, the two accounting for more than 60% of the global total.

With over 20,000 5G application innovations, China is striving to facilitate international economic and social progress with its latest 5G achievements.

Recalling a case in 2019, when experts from China Mobile showed him the application of 5G on rare earth mining, Stephen Orlins, chairman of the National Committee on US-China Relations, said he had was surprised that even though the control room was more than 1,000 km away, he could still guarantee and monitor the safety of the miners.

These technologies could significantly promote economic growth and job creation in China and the United States, he added.

In China, 5G applications have been deeply integrated into smart mines, smart factories and digital ports, providing new incentives for economic growth.

According to the China Internet Development Report 2021, China’s digital economy reached 39.2 trillion yuan (about $6 trillion) in 2020, accounting for 38.6% of total GDP.

“These advances highlight the role of the 5G value chain in promoting economic growth and sustainable development,” said Zhu Juwang, director of the Public Institutions and Digital Government Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs. United Nations.

“If different regions have different standards, mobile communication services will not be able to achieve ideal range and scale, and the cost to telecom operators and consumers will also be higher,” said Liu Jian, senior vice president. from ZTE.

According to Liu, Chinese enterprises are actively participating in the construction, application and promotion of the global 5G network, as well as scientific and technological cooperation in the digital sector with other countries.

Qualcomm, an American company also dedicated to international telecommunications standards, has worked with Chinese mobile communications companies for more than 30 years.

“Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, we have maintained a 20% increase in headcount per year in China for the past three years. The strong momentum we are seeing in the Chinese market reinforces our commitment to continued cooperation with our Chinese partners,” said Frank Meng, president of Qualcomm China.

As the 5G application enters a critical phase of rapid development, it now faces more complex cybersecurity challenges. Chinese companies are therefore consolidating the foundations of cybersecurity with their innovations.

To promote the development and industrialization of 5G technology, global cooperation in production, education and research is of vital importance.

“Advancing technology in China is also a process for China to further open up and expand cooperation,” said Gong Ke, executive chairman of the China Institute of Artificial Intelligence Development Strategies of China. new generation.
