  • Huawei Takes Aim at AI Sector With Two New Chips

Eric Xu said that ICT firm was building new products and cloud services on Ascend chip capabilities.

The Chinese tech giant's chip arm, Hisilicon, will look to pop home-grown slices of silicon into the servers Huawei now flogs to telecoms and cloud companies, thereby replacing the need to source Intel chips which it usually uses, according to Reuters.

Huawei's semiconductor arm, Hisilicon, already makes some chips the company uses in its smartphones and telecom equipment, but the servers it now sells to telecom companies and cloud computing clients mostly use Intel chips. "In the consumer market, HiAI will bring true intelligence to our consumer devices, making them smarter than ever", Xu noted. Its cloud computing platform will give competition to the homegrown Alibaba, Microsoft Corp and Amazon Web Services.

Huawei said it plans to expand the portfolio to "all scenarios, both standalone and cooperative scenarios between cloud, edge, and device". "Their unified architecture also makes it easy to deploy, migrate, and interconnect AI applications across different scenarios", Huawei said. And in April this year, Huawei announced HiAI, its AI engine for smart devices.

"Full stack means that Huawei is able to provide AI application developers with unparalleled computing power and a strong application development platform. Our portfolio will also include an AI acceleration card, AI server, AI appliance, and many other products", Xu further added.

The lack of awareness and the severe shortage of mental health professionals in the country add to the problem. This makes mental illness one of the most prevalent illnesses known to man.


"Huawei is ready to work with all stakeholders to turn AI into a practical reality, making it inclusive and available for every person, every home, and every organisation", the company said.

Reports cite, the new AI chips would be pitting Huawei against some major silicon players like NVIDIA and Qualcomm as the Chinese tech giant establishes a strategy that it hopes would be driving the future growth of the company.

"At present, AI projects are always labour-intensive, especially during the data labelling process".

The world's No. 2 smartphone brand by sales volume is on track to sell 200 million phones this year, up from 153 million units last year, thanks to its new AI-capable phones with its Kirin 970 chips, he noted. So as technology evolves, many enterprises will thrive with AI technology.

Huawei has also encountered its own problems recently, as it meets with resistance in the West from some countries concerned that its core networking equipment and smartphones could pose a national security risk.
