Huawei challenges rivals with AI chips

Huawei challenges rivals with AI chips

The new products are part of the company's strategy discussed at the conference to invest in fundamental research and create a full-stack, all-scenario AI portfolio, as well as train new talent, Huawei Rotating Chairman Eric Xu said. "And we have what it takes to make that happen". The company, however, is facing more scrutiny, damaging an overseas business that generates roughly 70 percent of its revenue.

In September 2017, Huawei released Huawei Cloud EI, an AI service platform for enterprises and governments. Apart from hardware, Huawei's new portfolio also encompasses cloud services built upon the Ascend chips. "In the consumer market, HiAI will bring true intelligence to our consumer devices, making them smarter than ever", Xu noted. On Wednesday, Huawei unveiled a series of products tied to its cloud computing services, as it competes with players like Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. and foreign ones like Amazon.com Inc. And that there are enough data scientists and subject matter experts to make it all add up to real business value.

Huawei also announced a smart cities AI partnership with Tianjin Binhai New Area, as well as a smart campus solution and joint innovation laboratories alongside Chinese real estate developer Vanke.

Huawei said it plans to expand the portfolio to "all scenarios, both standalone and cooperative scenarios between cloud, edge, and device".

Huawei's push into AI chips comes as China looks to develop its semiconductor industry and be less dependent on imports.

"At present, AI projects are always labour-intensive, especially during the data labelling process". At the most fundamental level, it will require a massive growth of computer processing power, which he said urgently needs to become more abundant and affordable.

However, Dang Wenshuan, Huawei's chief strategy architect, explained that the benefits of a unified architecture are "quite clear", including: one-time ops development, consistent development and debugging, and smooth migration across device, edge, and cloud. "That means providing intelligent, automated and easy-to-use AI platforms, tools, services, and training and education programmes to foster a huge number of data science engineers", he said. Primarily, Huawei's AI portfolio includes its new Ascend series of AI chips which company claims to be the world's first AI IP and chip. So as technology evolves, many enterprises will thrive with AI technology.
