Huawei unveils AI chips taking aim at giants like Qualcomm and Nvidia

Huawei unveils AI chips taking aim at giants like Qualcomm and Nvidia

Huawei said it will sell whole packages based on the chips to third parties, rather than just the chips themselves.

However, the company is facing more scrutiny, damaging its overseas business that generates about 70 percent of its total revenue.

It is also introducing cloud computing services and dedicated data centers for autonomous vehicles that are to run off those chips, delving deeper into territory staked out by Amazon.com Inc, Microsoft Corp and Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (阿里巴巴). In the consumer market, HiAI will bring true intelligence to our consumer devices. The Ascend series takes Huawei into the hardware segment of the enterprise world, supporting its software and services offerings.

Xu added the company would apply AI to massive volumes of routine business activities for better efficiency and quality in order to improve the functionality of its technology. The company's full-stack, all-scenario AI portfolio is created to provide support for both Huawei Cloud EI and HiAI, as well as other services. Its portfolio will also include an AI acceleration card, AI server, AI appliances and many other products.

Some charges in Weinstein sex assault case dropped
Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has one less count of sexual assault being brought against him before his trial begins. Rather, "it only speaks volumes about the Manhattan D.A.'s office and its mishandling of my client's case".

Red Sox eliminate rival Yankees, advance to ALCS
But the Red Sox , frequent visitors who clinched the AL East crown at Yankee Stadium just 2½ weeks ago, were hardly intimidated. The Red Sox are back in the ALCS for the first time since 2013, when they won the World Series in six games over the Cardinals.

She's now currently in a mental health facility for treatment. "Obvi", she wrote on September 23 . Fans of the star took to social media on Thursday to show their support and pray for her.

Xu went on to launch Huawei's full-stack "all-scenario" AI portfolio. And in April this year, Huawei announced HiAI, its AI engine for smart devices. They include: Faster model training; Abundant and affordable computing power; AI deployment and user privacy; New algorithms; automation; Practical application; -time, closed-loop system; Multi-tech synergy; Platform support; Talent availability.

"At present, AI projects are always labour-intensive, especially during the data labelling process". Moving forward, it needs to become a one-stop platform, with AI as a basic skill shared by all app developers. The demand for data engineers/scientists will increase, he said in a press conference following his speech.

The move, which will see Huawei use its own chips in its servers for the first time, comes as China is looking to speed up the development of its semiconductor market here amid a fierce trade stand-off with the United States that has underscored the country's reliance on imported technology. So as technology evolves, many enterprises will thrive with AI technology.

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.
