A dean from one of China’s top Universities has been fired after his claims of inventing a new computer chip technology turned out to be fraud

Shanghai Jiao Tong University fired Chen Jin after finding out that he faked research on the Hanxin digital signal processing chip. It was also discovered that the chip was unable to perform functions claimed by Chen earlier like verifying fingerprints. The University stated that later versions of the chip did not perform functions as earlier claimed either.

The University started an investigation into Chen’s work after receiving a letter that alleged fraudulent research. An investigation by the University claimed that Chen deceived technological appraisal teams from the central and local governments and also the university and government ministries that funded his research.

This case bears similarities to the South Korean Cloning scientist who announced huge advances in Stem Cell research that gave hope for breakthrough treatments to diseases such as Alzheimer’s, until investigations late last year showed that he had fabricated key data.

it's easy to point fingers. Fraudulent research isn't new. I remember reading an article about a US research team who jumped the gun in announcing the success of cold fusion. I couldn't remember the instituition they were based.

The above comment seems rather xenophobic, didn't you use the same argument during the japanese bubble economy period? Furthermore the point of this article is not even on IP theft concluding that you sir are a troll.

Cold Fusion as been achieved a handfull of times already... only never replicated under controlled conditions. *lol*
I remember seeing it in the news on TV some years ago (over 10 years ago I think) that the russians achieved cold fusion... never heard of it again.
