Republic of India The Republic of India has seen considerable coverage of its potential of becoming a superpower, both in the media and among academics.
Some telltale numbers suggest the nature of the future great power competition between Washington and Beijing that could determine the course of the 21st century. Similarly, in the critical race for worldwide patents, American leadership in technological innovation is clearly on the wane.
Inthe United States still held the number two spot behind Japan in patent applications withChina was, however, closing in fast at , thanks to a blistering percent increase since By then, it also had the most supercomputers with compared to for the United States and only 29 for Japan. Over the longer term, the American education system, that critical source of future scientists and China emerging super power, has been falling behind its competitors.
Inthe Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development tested half a million year-olds worldwide. But why, you might ask, should anybody care about a bunch of year-olds with backpacks, braces, and attitude? Because bythey will be the mid-career scientists and engineers determining whose computers survive a cyber attack, whose satellites evade a missile strike, and whose economy has the next best thing.
Rival Superpower Strategies With its growing resources, Beijing has been laying claim to an arc of islands and waters from Korea to Indonesia long dominated by the US Navy.
It also started shifting spare air and sea assets to a string of bases from Japan to Australia in a bid to strengthen its strategic position along the Asian littoral.
China has already made major technological advances that could prove decisive in any future war with Washington. Instead of competing across the board, Beijing, like many late adopters of technology, has strategically chosen key areas to pursue, particularly orbital satellites, which are a fulcrum for the effective weaponization of space.
Playing catch-up, China has recently achieved a bold breakthrough in secure communications. To check China, Washington has been building a new digital defense network of advanced cyberwarfare capabilities and air-space robotics. Between andthe Pentagon extended drone operations into the exosphere, creating an arena for future warfare unlike anything that has gone before.
As early asif all goes according to plan, the Pentagon will loft a triple-tier shield of unmanned drones reaching from the stratosphere to the exosphere, armed with agile missiles, linked by an expanded satellite system, and operated through robotic controls.
For the first time, a top strategic think-tank, closely aligned with the US military and long famous for its influential strategic analyses, was seriously contemplating a major war with China that the United States would not win. Scenario The technology of space and cyberwarfare is so new, so untested, that even the most outlandish scenarios currently concocted by strategic planners may soon be superseded by a reality still hard to conceive.
That scenario was no doubt useful for Air Force planners, but said little about the actual future of US global power. Similarly, the RAND War with China study only compared military capacities, without assessing the particular strategies either side might use to its advantage.
With the American economy diminished, Washington plays the last card in an increasingly weak hand, deploying six of its remaining eight carrier groups to the Western Pacific. Flying from air bases in the Spratly Islands, their jet fighters soon begin buzzing US Navy ships in the South China Sea, while Chinese frigates play chicken with two of the aircraft carriers on patrol, crossing ever closer to their bows.
Beijing demands an apology and reparations.
At the stroke of midnight on Black Friday, as cyber-shoppers storm the portals of Best Buy for deep discounts on the latest consumer electronics from Bangladesh, Navy personnel staffing the Space Surveillance Telescope at Exmouth, Western Australia, choke on their coffees as their panoramic screens of the southern sky suddenly blip to black.
The first overt strike is one nobody at the Pentagon predicted. Determined to fight fire with fire, the White House authorizes a retaliatory strike. There is zero response. In near panic, the Navy orders its Zumwalt-class destroyers to fire their RIM killer missiles at seven Chinese satellites in nearby geostationary orbits.Schell, Orville () Wealth and Power: China's Long March to the Twenty-first Century.

After a decade of drift and uncertainty. China an Emerging Superpower? By Lyman Miller P eople have been predicting China’s emergence as a superpower since the days of Napoleon, who purportedly appreciated China’s potential as a world power and cautioned against waking the sleeping dragon.
World leaders, CEOs, and academics have suggested that a revolution in artificial intelligence is upon us. Are they right, and what will advances in artificial intelligence mean for international competition and the balance of power?
This article evaluates how developments in artificial intelligence (AI) — advanced, narrow applications in particular — are poised to influence military power. As an emerging superpower, China, which plays a tremendous role in Asia and the Eastern Pacific region, has been working to change its image.
Over the last few decades, improved relations with neighboring countries have created an abundance of wealth for smaller nations and fostered increased dependence on the growing Chinese economy.
