Regression Analysis of Computing Index and GDP (Graphic: Business Wire)

The global digital economy continues to grow steadily. As a key productivity factor in the digital economy era, computing power has become the core support and driving force for the development of the digital economy. This white paper shows that increased investment in computing power in a country or region can lead to economic growth, and this growth has a long-term multiplier effect. When the Computing Index is over 40 points, for every 1-point increase in Computing Index, the impact on GDP will increase 1.5 times, and this impact will grow to 3 times when the Computing Index is greater than 60.

From the perspective of national rankings, most countries have improved their computing power scores. The Assessment results show that the United States and China rank as the top two with 77 points and 70 points respectively. The scores of the rising countries are between 40 and 55 points, including Japan, Germany, the United Kingdom, France and 7 others. Those with scores lower than 40 points are startup countries, including India, Italy, Brazil and 6 others.

From the perspective of industry rankings, the top 5 industries pertaining to global computing power are the Internet, finance, manufacturing, telecommunications and government. These industries are increasing their investment in artificial intelligence, and industries that have already made large investments in computing power are also investing in emerging technologies. The Internet industry in particular, actively embraces emerging technologies and leads the world in computing power. The financial industry is accelerating artificial intelligence usage to support business innovation and development. The digital transformation of the manufacturing industry is advancing with more intelligent manufacturing and promoting the construction of digital factories. The telecommunications industry uses computing power to optimize internal management and empower external business innovation.

From the perspective of computing power, artificial intelligence and edge computing have become important forces for market growth. According to the white paper, from a comprehensive perspective of the 15 countries, spending in artificial intelligence has increased from 9% in 2016 to 12% of total computing power spending. It is expected to reach 25% by 2025. As a platform-based technology, edge computing provides important carrying capacity for emerging technologies such as 5G, Internet of Things, robotics, and artificial intelligence. In the next five years, the global investment in edge computing power will grow much faster than core computing power. By 2025, the proportion of global edge computing server spending will increase to 24.9% of total server spending.

The digital economy and the real economy are both accelerating, and the value of computing power for industrial transformation and national competitiveness has been recognized worldwide. The white paper encourages countries to invest more in computing power infrastructure, as well as strengthening international cooperation and shared development in computing power.

The Global Computing Power Index Assessment analyzes 15 countries spanning six continents, and comprehensively evaluates the computing power levels of various countries in four dimensions: computing capacity, computing efficiency, application level and infrastructure support. The white paper draws nine core views of the impact of computing power on economic growth from the perspective of statistical data and economic theory.
