EyE on U | Mark Mak: China's 'Digital Silk Road' brings mobile technology to B&R countries
In response to the increasingly complex community needs, new digital industry concepts, represented by 5G (5th generation mobile networks), have emerged. This rapid change is like the "industrial revolution" of the new era, driving countries to make breakthroughs in the field of telecommunication technology.
In this episode, we are joined by Mark Mak, the Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of Roborn. As a "mechanical junkie," Mak has a wealth of research experience. He is an accomplished innovator in science and technology, having won dozens of awards in tech competitions and holding over 100 patents.
Roborn is a tech developer mainly focused on motion detection applications and is also one of the participators of the Digital Silk Road Initiative.
The Digital Silk Road (DSR) was established by China as the technological dimension of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) in 2015. The Digital Silk Road cooperation mechanism, launched by China in 2017, has constantly assisted Belt and Road countries in improving digital infrastructure, raising internet coverage, and promoting digital infrastructure connectivity.
Under the initiative, China has funded hundreds of special economic zones, or industrial areas designed to create jobs, and encouraged countries to embrace its technology offerings, such as the 5G communication network.
What is the 5G technology all about and why is it so important? How has Roborn, as a leading company in the industry, contributed to developing China's Belt and Road Initiative? What should be the focus for future development? Watch the video now for more details.
