BEIJING, June 1 (Xinhua) -- The following is a summary of published science and technology news of China.


China has become a major innovation hub and target market for brain-computer interface (BCI) technology, according to a report released at the recently held Zhongguancun Forum in Beijing.

The report showed that advances in fields such as imaging, microelectronics, AI and neuroscience have contributed to the notable progress in the understanding of brain function and interaction as well as emerging business opportunities.

Zhang Qian, senior engineer with the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology, said that biomedicine, materials science, electronics and other disciplines have laid a good foundation for implantable electrode manufacturing, and implantable neural microelectrode has entered the iterative innovation stage.


The Advanced Space-based Solar Observatory, called Kuafu-1 in Chinese, has detected more than 200 solar flares since it was launched into space last October, according to the project's chief scientist Gan Weiqun.

Observation data from three payloads onboard Kuafu-1 has been made available for trial use at home and abroad, Gan said at the Zhongguancun Forum on Tuesday.

Kuafu-1 is an all-rounder satellite specially designed for solar detection. Kuafu is a giant in Chinese mythology who indefatigably chased the sun.


A 176-qubit quantum computing platform named Zuchongzhi went online for global users Wednesday night, which is expected to push forward the development of quantum computing hardware and its ecosystem, according to the Center for Excellence in Quantum Information and Quantum Physics under the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Zhu Xiaobo, chief engineer of the project and professor at the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), said that the research team improved the 66-qubit chip of Zuchonghi-2 by adding control interfaces of 110 coupled qubits, allowing users to manipulate 176 quantum bits.

Zuchongzhi 2 is a 66-qubit programmable quantum computing system made in 2021, which can perform large-scale random quantum circuits sampling about 10 million times faster than the fastest supercomputer at that time. Enditem
