Imagine a Future Where Policymakers No Longer Need to Imagine: Adkins Zheng of TCSA Delivers Keynote at the Dialogue of Continents

PARIS, Nov. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Thousand Cities Strategic Algorithms Cloud Technology (TCSA) was invited as a panelist and distinguished expert for the Dialogue of Continents, a forum hosted by the Hamburg Institute of International Economics and the Reinventing Bretton Woods Committee (RBWC). Mr. Adkins Zheng, the Chairman and Chief Algorithm Officer of TCSA, delivered a keynote speech during the opening discussion themed “Embracing the Age of Imagination and Uncertainties: The Global Economic and Social Impact of COVID-19” on November 5th, 2020.

TCSA was officially invited to the Dialogue of Continents global online conference

The pandemic has severely impacted the global economy, creating significant pressure on both political institutions and traditional governance mechanisms. In his keynote, Zheng addressed the pressing need to find a new way out of the current conundrum, where the effectiveness of monetary policies is ebbing and central banks find themselves making decisions in total darkness. The insights and solutions provided by TCSA to transform each central bank into a nation’s largest data powerhouse – ensuring transparency and providing a real-time, granular, and scientific view for decision-makers around the world – won recognition from all parties involved.

This central-bank-based data hub will serve as the “policy cockpit” and the “macroeconomic brain” for a new era of contemporary governance and provide a significant upgrade in statecraft.  The panel reached the common ground that data should not be controlled only by the private sector, as is often the case by major internet giants. Instead, data must be owned by each nation and its citizens for a more egalitarian purpose: to create an equal, sustainable and transparent country of stability and prosperity.

Participating global authorities and thought leaders also express their deepest concerns for economic fragility, societal fragmentation, climate change, and geopolitical tension, and reach a consensus that joint efforts and collective action should be the top priority. They called for tighter collaboration between nations on multilateral platforms, stronger links between the public and private sector, and deeper collaboration across disciplines from science to politics, in order to create a common path towards innovative progress and sustainable peace.

The first opening panel of this 3-day annual conference was attended by global thought leaders such as the Korea Institute for International Economic Policy (KIEP), Think Austria Strategy Unit of the Austrian Federal Government, Center for the Future of Work at Cognizant, Institute of Global Affairs at London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and the Ministry of Finance of China. Attendees had an in-depth discussion on the implications of COVID-19 and how policymakers can address global challenges with bold, innovative and data-empowered solutions.

Thousand Cities Strategic Algorithms (TCSA) Leads 20 Different Countries in a Global Declaration of Action

SHANGHAI, Nov. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — On November 6, Mr. Adkins Zheng, Chairman of Thousand Cities Strategic Algorithms Cloud Technology (TCSA), together with diplomatic representatives from 20 countries, adopted a “Declaration of Action for Global Stability, Prosperity and Freedom” in Shanghai, the host city for the third China International Import Expo (CIIE). The Declaration underscores the importance of developing national governance systems and socioeconomic systems that are more targeted, scientific and effective.

TCSA Leads 20 Different Countries in a Global Declaration of Action

For the last few centuries, the frameworks of economics, society and statecraft have not undergone true structural improvement. Increasingly and with great urgency, the world is discovering that the traditional frameworks in place have struggled to bear the sheer density of the modern world’s population, supply and demand, industries and information overload. To tackle these issues, each country must begin to develop national governance systems and socioeconomic systems that are far more accurate and efficient than those in place today.

Citizens of all nations now live in a rapidly changing society driven by information and technology, and the world desperately needs to sift through overwhelming mountains of data to extract objective, logical and accurate conclusions. For example, as far back as the first code of law was etched onto a stone tablet, populations have known that social order, from its inception to its reform and improvement, begins and ends with information and the restructuring of information. Today, advanced and scientific ideas must move beyond the pages of academic papers and be integrated into precise, digital solutions that are then systematically applied towards the betterment of human civilization.

In today’s digital age, the most ubiquitous and causally-oriented carrier of information is monetary transaction data. By utilizing this data as an information source, it is possible to build highly effective, targeted frameworks and instruments for social order. The most practical path towards truly enhancing or reforming a nation’s governance system is to transform its central bank’s monetary system into a “National Economic Data Brain”.

From this perspective, TCSA has boldly imagined a new way forward – harnessing an open-minded economic approach and open-sourced data technology to serve governments and central banks worldwide in the following customized goals:

  1. To build independent market systems for basic societal assets such as infrastructure, food, transportation, housing, health, education, social welfare, public safety and various other public goods. In turn, governments can create general employment and productive opportunities related to these market systems, focus on the basic interests and rights of their citizens, strengthen the social contract and trust between the state and people, and ultimately achieve social stability.
  2. To achieve an average annual GDP increase of 0.5 to 1.5 per cent through a multilayered approach involving the localization of Basic Societal Assets Market Systems, as well as the globalization of technology and industrial market systems.
  3. To provide logically reliable and cost-effective data infrastructure projects and system installation services for central banks and payment terminals, in order to build an overarching algorithmic sovereign currency system on top of existing electronic and digital payment schemes, ultimately helping each country establish a more stable and independent currency system.

TCSA’s Global Affairs department has established multilingual task forces in English, Russian, Spanish, French and Arabic to provide technology transfer consulting services for central banks and national governments on all continents. These TCSA professionals advise central governments, monetary authorities, international organizations, political parties, industry experts, academic researchers and business leaders; contribute resources, wisdom, and capabilities and apply noble ideals cutting-edge data technologies – all in the pursuit of optimizing Hayek’s free market efficiencies, clarifying the boundaries of supply and demand in Marx’s public-oriented theories, upgrading the obscure Keynesian state interventionist economic model to a precise data-driven market economy model, and ultimately leading society to a greater future of freedom, stability and prosperity.

 أظهرت أجهزة AmtRak قوتها من حيث ما يلي:

 Antminer AntRack سهل التوزيع والتوسيع

 يعتمد AntRack تصميم نظام الوحدات، بما في ذلك خمس وحدات رئيسية تتكون من 1 رف، 1 لوحة تبديل، 4 خوادم، 1 لوحة تحكم رئيسية، و 1 نظام تبريد مائي، والأجزاء الحاسمة مثل لوحة التجزئة، ولوحة التحكم، وحدة إمدادات الطاقة (PSU)، والمراوح؛ كلها قابلة للتبديل السريع للعمليات المحسّنة، وتقلل بشكل كبير من مخاطر استهلاك الماكينة مع زيادة وقت التعدين الفعال، مما يجعلها خيارًا مثاليًا للعملاء الذين يتطلعون إلى إدارة تكلفة التوسع ورفع معدل العائد. وطالما أن الموقع يسمح بالتوسيع، يمكن للعملاء تثبيت العديد من AntRacks حسب الحاجة، مما يسهل توسيعه في أي وقت.

مناسبة للعمليات على نطاق واسع

 يعد التعدين بنظام الأرفف خيارًا مناسبًا تمامًا للتوزيع على نطاق واسع لمزارع التعدين ومراكز بيانات الإنترنت (IDC). يمكن نشر AntRack بسهولة والبدء في العمل بمجرد توصيل كابل طاقة التيار المتردد ثلاثي الطور وكابل الشبكة، وتعيين مدخل ومخرج نظام التبريد المائي. وبالإضافة إلى ذلك توفر شركة بيتماين حل مركز بيانات متكامل/ يُعرف باسم ANTBOX، كل منها يحتوي على 10 من معدات التعدين من النوع AntRack. كما أن التعدين يكون ممكنًا في كل مكان تقريبًا وذلك ومن خلال تكوين مصدر طاقة التيار المتردد ثلاثي الطور ومنفذ الشبكة ونظام التبريد بالمياه.

سهل الترقية وموثوق

 يسمح هذا التصميم القابل للتبديل السريع لـ AntRack استبدال لوحة التجزئة بأحدث شرائح الجيل (7 نانومتر إلى 5 نانومتر، و 3 نانومتر، و 1 نانومتر)، حيث تعمل كل ترقية على تحسين قوة الحوسبة الإجمالية مع الحفاظ على نفس استهلاك الطاقة. كما يحتوي كل خادم في AntRack على وحدة امدادات الطاقة التي توفر 3+1 عمليات زائدة عن الحاجة لضمان عدم انقطاع التعدين أبدًا.

صرح صن مينغوي، مدير البحث والتطوير في مشروع AntRack، “تصميمنا مدفوع بعقلية حل المشكلات. ولقد نما إلى علمنا أن العديد من عملائنا يواجهون تحديات عند محاولة توسيع عملياتهم. كما ان تكلفة ترقية المعدات، ليس فقط الاستثمار في الآلات الجديدة، بل أيضًا استهلاك الوقت عند إيقاف تشغيل الآلات القديمة للتبديل بآلات جديدة. لذلك فإن AntRack هو الحل الذي نقدمه لهذه المشكلة. كما إنه يتميز بتصميم معياري قابل للتبديل السريع ، ويمكن تطبيقه بشكل ملائم وفعال على النشر على نطاق واسع، مع الحفاظ على إدارة فعالة للميزانية قيد التشغيل”.
