Mul­ti­ple sci­ence, tech­nol­ogy projects in 5-year plan

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

From ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence to smog con­trol, the Chi­nese Acad­emy of Sciences (CAS) un­veiled 60 ma­jor sci­ence and tech­nol­ogy break­throughs the coun­try aspires to make in the next five years.

Key projects in­clude or­gan re­pair and re­con­struc­tion, water pol­lu­tion con­trol, re­search on moon sam­ples, a low-fre­quency ra­dio tele­scope on the far side of the moon and the de­vel­op­ment of a ground ap­pli­ca­tion sys­tem for China’s Mars mis­sion.

Last month, China re­leased im­ages of a Mars probe and rover which the coun­try plans to send to the red planet within five years.

CAS set a goal to dou­ble the coun­try’s 2015 in­tel­lec­tual property rights earn­ings by 2020, and help com­pa­nies to cre­ate 150,000 jobs and ad­di­tional rev­enue worth more than $717 bil­lion with the ap­pli­ca­tion of new tech­nol­ogy.
