Plz edit the title,i wrongly wrote Indian rank at 7,it's actually 9.
china at 2nd position ???
isnt it a copycat country.
Don't need to worry. When major sources of China's tech are slowing down, (like Russia), it won't be hung here so many years.
They are investing in indigenous R&D especially since last decade,their science and Tech Universities are among best In Asia,just compare our Uni even though they are oldest in the World - Like Calcutta uni,now such in pathetic condition.
what me meant by previously that,
do they spend that hugh money on r&d or just copy others sh*t,
sh*t on which others spent time and money working on,
copying requires less amount of money,
are they spending that hugh money and even if they do,time requires for innovation cannot be cut short,
when they spent decades on copying others work.
I am wondering, Pakistan is no where close, since they are able to develop critical technologies for Missiles and nukes?
WOW that's pathetic....and mostly because indian UNI politics system is $hit.
@salute @Indx TechStyle best not to underestimate china. We might troll them for "copying" but let's be clear, copying is not easy. Even a simple commodity software product is not easy to "copy". Let's take a product like twitter or amazon web services. Everything is out there, all the features are known. Just try copying them.
You just won't find good manpower. We have so many people in India who barely know their stuff, even in commodity sectors like IT product development. Recruitment is always the biggest issue.
In other words, even if you give me a budget of 1 billion dollars and tell me to create twitter in India, I cannot guarantee that I can make it happen in a time bound manner. Let alone missile systems or slbm etc.
So let's not scoff at "copycats".
IMO some areas our research base and tech prowess is superior to many even Chinese like space,pharma/bio tech etc,we've develop it by our own.
But unlike Chinese our public universities has no accountability, no research culture or best,giving a degree.Space,Bio technology/Pharma,Chemical engineering
They can't even produce let alone developing critical technology for nukes.
They don't have a SLV though their SUPERCO is older than ISRO,yet they have BM more than 2500 km range.
This is just based on academic articles which are shared with and 'cited' by other science academics. However plenty of science and R&D takes place without academic articles getting published. E.g. defence R&D or highly advanced technology that gives a strategic edge. Therefore the title is misleading.
Why mentioning only Kolkata? Not Bangalore? Not Hyderabad?
As the time will pass, we will climb up the rank.
Silver lining is India
9th in 2010&overall 1964-2014
7th in 2011,2012&2013
6th in 2014
1 United States
3 United Kingdom
in 2015 we may enter 5th and finally 3rd in 2016 rankings.
Because it was one the oldest uni of Asia,at that time Chinese had not modern university of that status,I think it is still known as Calcutta uni.
Now their public university outclass ours,however Punjab uni is still catching up apart from pvt uni like AMITY.
though agree about what you said that we maybe taunt chinese too much about them being copycats,
but india is twice if not thrice bigger than china when it comes information tech,
even china wants to learn from india about information tech,
you probably talking about all that tech infrastructure chinese got,
thats probably making them look powerful.
I didn't mean that. We are not comparing f"first cities to do so". We are comparing two countries and there are many cities better than Kolkata.
Question is, Are you publishing quality papers?
It is not about the quantity, but the quality.
Very true many Chinese papers are rehashed research from the west. Very little innovation is coming out of China. Look at Japan lower volume but quality research.
