In addition to network facilities, the project included three supercomputer centers. According to professor Jack Dongarra, the Chinese are making a deep commitment to supercomputing.

Famous quotes containing the word china:

    Consider the China pride and stagnant self-complacency of mankind. This generation inclines a little to congratulate itself on being the last of an illustrious line; and in Boston and London and Paris and Rome, thinking of its long descent, it speaks of its progress in art and science and literature with satisfaction.... It is the good Adam contemplating his own virtue.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
