In July 2015, the United States publicised their plans to gain the number one position in supercomputing, which was held by the Chinese supercomputer Thiane-2. To achieve this aim, the U.S. imposed an export ban on high-end computer chips. As announced in June 2016, China has maintained its number one position with the Sunway TaihuLight, a supercomputer not only twice as fast as Thiane-2, but based exclusively on home- grown microprocessors. Thiane-2, however, was already much underutilised due to a lack of suitable software.                                                                 November 2016: as sound recordings indicate, a super- computer, underwhelmed by its repetitive neural network simulation, started to allow other computational tasks to disrupt and interfere.
