Abstract ( 202 )
Recently, a series of national reform policies have been issued intensively. People from the top of the country to the local government are all requiring to break the institutional obstacle of talent flow to motivate researchers'entrepreneurship. Considering these new circumstances, higher requirements should be put forward for the intellectual property management of research institutions. Research institutions need to take measures to control intellectual property risks due to talent flow and to strengthen such as technical secrets management, intellectual property policy incentives, development of e-Science, personnel background checks and intellectual property training. The aforementioned countermeasures can improve the positive interaction between intellectual property protection of research institutions and talent flow.

Abstract ( 101 )
Core technologies subject to foreign countries have become the top priority of China's economic security. The issue of techno-economic security needs urgent attention. This study draws on the concepts of "sensitivity" and "vulnerability" from interdependence theory, and proposes four categories of attributes and corresponding indicators of technological sensitivity, economic sensitivity, technological vulnerability and economic vulnerability for China's industrial sectors based on the perspective of techno-economic security. Factors of sensitivity and vulnerability are extracted using the factor analysis method and 38 industrial sectors are divided into four categories:High sensitivity and high vulnerability, high sensitivity and low vulnerability, low sensitivity and high vulnerability, low sensitivity and low vulnerability. This classification can provide a basis for conducting classified monitoring and evaluation of the techno-economic security status of various industries as well as for better safeguarding national economic security.

On the development management model of shale gas in China

HUANG Weihe, LIU Hai
Science & Technology Review. 2019, 37 (19): 66-73. ;  doi: 10.3981/j.issn.1000-7857.2019.19.009

Abstract ( 154 )
The shale gas efficient development model is summarized as "integrated management + horizontal well platform + super-large fracturing + factory operation" in North America, in which the integrated management is a combination of revolutionary and cost-effective management measures. At present, there is still no integrated management model that conforms to the characteristics of Chinese shale gas development. Successful experiences of development in North America and China are analyzed in this article. In terms of transaction cost theory, property rights theory and economic mechanism design theory of the new institutional economics, the characteristics of China's shale gas development are characterized by high asset specificity, high uncertainty, and high transaction frequency. The development direction of shale gas development and management in China should be mixed ownership and in the form of enterprise entity. China should set up a number of shale gas development groups constituted by "large oil and gas resources exploration enterprises + large oil and gas technical service enterprises + local government representative enterprises", and the constitution model can be alliance, related party transactions and joint-stock enterprises. Then a set of long-term management mechanisms for China's shale gas development with effective use of information, reasonable resource allocation, and compatible incentives methods can be established. Management innovation driven technological innovation should be the fundamental way to solve many problems in China's shale gas development.

Abstract ( 138 )
With the continuous development of countermeasure and anti-countermeasure technology as well as the increasing application of low intercept signals, traditional signal extraction methods are no longer to satisfy user's needs for extraction of low intercept signal waveforms. In this paper, based on the discrete prolate spheroidal sequence (DPSS), the time-window function is used to analyze multiple linear frequency modulation signals. A method employing horizontal threshold decision probability to capture signal is proposed, and extraction of signal waveform is completed by adaptive binarization and improved Hough transform (HT). Simulation shows that the proposed method is better than the short-time Fourier transform algorithm in terms of noise control and can accurately extract the waveform at low SNR.

Brief history and enlightenment of machine chess: From “Deep Blue” to AlphaZero

XUE Yonghong, WANG Hongpeng
Science & Technology Review. 2019, 37 (19): 87-96. ;  doi: 10.3981/j.issn.1000-7857.2019.19.012

Abstract ( 243 )
Taking the historical evolution as the main line, this paper combs and summarizes "Deep Blue" and AlphaGo from the aspects of design philosophy and technical features. Relied on human experience of chess, "Deep Blue" achieved transcendence with humans by means of computational power and algorithms. Twenty years later, AlphaGo, although its original version was also successful by using human experience, and its evolution revealed an important fact that human experience has its limitation. AlphaZero, which gives up human experience and adopts machine self-playing experience, convincingly defeated a world champion program in the games of chess and shogi (Japanese chess) as well as Go. It is clear that in chess games, limited by human cognition ability, experience accumulated by human beings for thousands of years is no longer superior to the "experience" formed by machines in a short term. Machines can do better than humans with the help of their own "experience", supported by enormous computing power and ever-improving algorithms. In the future, machines that "give up human experience and rely on their own experience" will likely make breakthroughs in more complex areas.
