Citing national security concerns, the U.S. Department of Commerce this week placed seven Chinese supercomputer organizations on the Entity List, which effectively bars them from receiving supplies or components from American companies. Commerce Secretary Gina M. Raimondo notes that the high-performance computing technologies developed by these entities could be used in weapons of mass destruction programs. “Supercomputing capabilities are vital for the development of many – perhaps almost all – modern weapons and national security systems, such as nuclear weapons and hypersonic weapons,” Raimondo says. “The Department of Commerce will use the full extent of its authorities to prevent China from leveraging U.S. technologies to support these destabilizing military modernization efforts.”
