China making ‘quite significant’ strides in supercomputing: Lowy Institute
A new report by the Lowy Institute ranks the military cyber capabilities of various countries, with a special focus on the Asia Pacific region. The index takes into account “the ability of countries to both defend against and commit acts of cyber espionage and attacks,” lead researcher Hervé Lemahieu stated. The top spot was shared by the US and Russia, with 100 points each. They were followed by China (98 points) and North Korea (72 points).
The study also found that in the realm of supercomputing, China is making impressive progress. It currently has 227 of the 500 most powerful computers on the planet, while the US only has 109.
