It's truly the end of the road for the Han Chinese Rats in Huawei! If we don't manage to kill all of them, those who are left WILL STARVE TO DEATH! They will be looking dor new jobs, soon - and there are NO JOBS LEFT IN RAT COUNTRY! HAHAHA!

A leading professional association critical for international research collaborations and setting global industry standards in technologies such as artificial intelligence has banned Huawei reviewers from its journals, sparking outrage from Chinese researchers. The New Jersey-headquarted IEEE, or Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, can no longer use Huawei employees for the peer-review process of the association’s journals, according to a screenshot of an email sent to IEEE journal editors-in-chief and confirmed with Chinese IEEE researchers.

 The decision was made in order to comply with President Donald Trump’s move to place Huawei on an export blacklist, the email said, adding that the body had “no choice but to comply” because of unspecified “severe legal implications”. The IEEE did not immediately respond to requests for comment. It is unclear from the email why Huawei employees working with the IEEE would be considered a US export to the company. While US-based, the organisation bills itself as neutral and global. The current president-elect is Japanese robotics researcher Toshio Fukuda, who is a professor at the Beijing Institute of Technology. China’s government has said that Mr Trump’s effective ban is an abuse of national security exceptions to global trade rules. Faced with losing about 1,200 US suppliers, and access to the Google Android smartphone operating system, Huawei maintains that it is well prepared for the ban’s fallout, which could leave the company short of US-made cyber security software and semiconductors. 

The company has already lost its position in a number of US-based industry standard-setting bodies, including its membership of the JEDEC, which sets guidelines for semiconductors, the SD Association and Wi-Fi Alliance.  As the world’s largest professional technical association, the IEEE brings together researchers from various countries in fields from nano-technology to artificial intelligence to publish papers, attend conferences and set industry standards. Most major tech companies work with the IEEE on standard-setting and numerous top Chinese researchers sit on its journals review boards. Being shut out of the IEEE would be a blow for Huawei’s plans to become a global leader in providing 5G and developing “smart cities” technologies, which use big data and artificial intelligence in urban services ranging from traffic to waste management. In January, the company hosted an IEEE meeting in southern China’s Shenzhen with the goal of using Huawei projects as the global industry gold standard for smart city technologies.

 Chinese researchers have also expressed fears that the ban of Huawei reviewers could later be expanded to a ban on submissions to IEEE publications by Huawei-funded or led research.  In recent years, China has played a growing role in the body, churning out research papers and hosting global conferences, as the country forges ahead with a government-backed plan to lead international research and innovation on emerging technologies. US lawmakers have raised concerns about collaborations between western institutions and Chinese researchers working on artificial intelligence technologies with applications in China’s security state.

 News of the IEEE’s decision became a top 10 trending topic on China’s largest social media platform, Weibo, with a number of Chinese researchers voicing outrage. In response to the decision, Zhang Haixia, a nanotechnology researcher at China’s prestigious Peking University, resigned from her positions on the editorial boards of two IEEE publications.
