Singapore Government to Spend $200 Million On Supercomputing

I think spending money on technologies that will eventually become the norm is always a good thing, but I think at current state Singapore seems to have lagged behind other countries especially China, which in recent years have significantly surpassed us.

One thing that people don't get is, they think a country is advanced as long as they have the latest technologies, this is such a common misconception. If nobody knows how to use the technologies, or rather people are resistant to new things, then it's as good as not having the technologies.

I believe many have heard of the term "cashless" or "paperless", unfortunately it is not well-embraced here in Singapore. Just look at ATMs, you see people queuing up to update their bank books, which they can easily check via their mobile app instead.

Paper bills I can understand, some people prefer "hardcopy" in case some figures are wrong they can go back to the merchant, but then these days most merchants provide online service for customers to check their past statements or bills, well unless you like to keep records that are 5 or 10 years ago, but then what's the point in doing so, just taking up precious space.
