China recently launched its first big data engineering laboratory in Guizhou province, which shows promises to perform several functions such as collecting and analyzing administrative data, offering privacy protection of data, applying big data technology to government decision making, social management, government supervision and much more.

The lab located in the national high-tech industrial development zone in the provincial capital, is expected to help improve government management policy.

Wang Daming, head of the Council of National Engineering Laboratory, was reportedly quoted as saying that the lab will focus on study of big data which would be dedicated to government management and also encourage the application and industrialization of big data in government management efficiency.

Earlier in November 2016, the National Development and Reform Commission had approved the joint construction of the laboratory by Guizhou and China Electronics Technology Group Corporation.

Big Data has seen an evident rise in China with Guizhou becoming the first pilot zone for big data. Since gaining popularity in the country, it has seen wide applications in government management, business and daily life. One such use case is the provincial high people’s court, which has set up a big data system to aid the handling of cases and facilitate public inquiries.

The big data industrial map facilitated by the province demonstrates the development of companies in different areas. This could come as a reference for policy making in the country. It is worth noting that the province’s computer, communication and other other electronic manufacturing industry saw their added value reach 9.3 billion yuan in 2016, which is apparently nine times that in 2011.

We had earlier covered a feature on how China has become a new entrant in the big data space and its continued interest in building and developing the infrastructure that could store and analyze big data. Not just big data, China has been tapping the AI and machine learning market as is evident from newer research papers and government policies that is flooding the province.
