China banned from using matlab

On the 13th of July, 2020 several military-related universities in China have been banned from using MATLAB because they have entered the sanctions list of the US government. As a result of this sanction, many have started asking the question whether the US government will also ban Chinese people from using Windows or other US software, such as MSSQLServer, Oracle, etc. Meanwhile, China admit the fact that MATLAB is known to be power and problems solving software but believed that there is no sanction can stop the pace of China's technological development. Hear from the horses mouth Hua Chunying a Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman said on Friday, responding to students at Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT) and Harbin Engineering University who are banned from using MATLAB due to U.S. sanctions. In an email to the users, MATLAB's U.S. developer, MathWorks, wrote that they are "prohibited from providing technical or customer support" to students from both universities, "due to recently imposed U.S. government regulations," according to user who posted the email on Chinese online platform Zhihu. MATLAB is a high-performance language for technical computing, which is widely used by students majoring in science and engineering. "I was still learning how to use it; therefore, it doesn't impact me very much. Its impact is limited to students who use it every day," one student from the Harbin Institute of Technology told the Global Times on Friday, on the condition of anonymity, "For some researchers, they will really feel the impact, as they can no longer publish research papers using MATLAB." Another junior student from HIT said that the classes "won't be impacted that much." Some users on Zhihu were provided a "recommended list" of open source software with similar functions to MATLAB. One Zhihu user named "baixiaoyu" told the Global Times on Friday that multiple open source software exist with similar functions, and these could be used as substitutes, which are also free of charge, adding that banning the software will not significantly impact the universities' teaching. If teachers and students from the universities can't access MATLAB, it will "be inconvenient for the short term," Xiang Ligang, director-general of telecom industry association, Information Consumption Alliance, told the Global Times on Friday, adding that no long-term impacts will be experienced by the country's academic researchers. In fact, the ban will "force the country's domestic market to develop its own, similar tools," which could actually be beneficial, Xiang noted. In May, the U.S. Department of Commerce placed an additional 33 firms, universities, research institutions, and individuals from China onto its "entity list," which now includes the Harbin Institute of Technology and Harbin Engineering University.
