Huawei to sell servers with own chips in cloud computing push

Huawei Takes Aim at AI Sector With Two New Chips

Huawei has unveiled its artificial intelligence (AI) strategy and full-stack portfolio, including a series of chips, cloud services, and products.

Looking at the new chips, Ascend 910 is aimed at data centres with Huawei claiming the chip can process more data, faster than its competitors and train networks in a matter of minutes, instead of weeks or months.

The chips are now being built by Huawei's semiconductor company Hisilicon, and can already be found in some of its smartphones and telecommunications gear.

Huawei is betting big on the AI industry which the company forecasts to have a market of 40 billion personal smart devices with more than 90% employing some form of AI technology by 2025.

Xu said Huawei's AI strategy is "to invest in basic research and talent development, build a full-stack, all-scenario AI portfolio, and foster an open global ecosystem".

Huawei has always been barred from selling telecom gear in the United States. In August, the firm was also barred from participating in Australia's 5G roll-out on similar grounds.

The company has repeatedly denied spying allegations.

In addition to its AI solutions and strategy, the tech giant also used Huawei Connect to outline its FusionStorage 8.0 multi-cloud solution; its CloudFabric network solution; and its Atlas200 "intelligent acceleration module" which it said can conduct real-time analysis of HD videos and smart small cells. According to Huawei, AI has become a new general goal technology and will change all industries and organisations on Earth.

Ben Affleck Signs For New Movie With Gavin O'Connor
Suicide Squad is beyond rehabilitation-there was so much wrong with it that no sequel could possibly work under any circumstance. The project doesn't have a release date yet, but is expected after Cathy Yan's Birds Of Prey , which is scheduled for 2020 .

AI was a powerful general-purpose technology like computing in the 20th century, and would make Huawei's existing solutions and services more competitive, Xu said.

Mr Xu believes the business potential of AI is huge as only about 4 per cent of firms have invested in AI technology. Only about 10 per cent of the smartphones in the market past year were equipped with AI capabilities.

"There will be much less demand for jobs that handle repetitive tasks", he added. It will allow AI developers to make use of the technology.

Xu said the company would continue to improve internal management and efficiency through AI.

"Our smartphone business is a testament to that", Mr Xu told Chinese and worldwide reporters as he fielded questions in an hour-long briefing.

Huawei's AI portfolio includes its new Ascend series of AI chips, which it says is the world's first AI Internet Protocol and chip series designed for a full range of scenarios.

"This is a surprising result for us".
