At the AI Everything Summit in Dubai this week, Huawei presented a global AI development strategy that aims to help businesses to implement and integrate various AI solutions.
A key highlight was Huawei’s Atlas AI computing platform, which covers the cloud, edge, and terminal. And is based on Huawei’s self-developed Ascend series AI chips. The chips will feature in a variety of product forms such as a AI accelerator module, AI accelerator card, AI edge station and AI server, which meets the needs of cloud, edge and terminal all-scenario AI deployment.
Huawei also showcased the Atlas 510 AI Edge Station, which provides superior edge AI computing power into one all-inclusive package that is both water and dust proof. Its unique design means that it can be deployed to a variety of outdoor locations, including lamp poles. It could then be integrated into other systems such as traffic control, pedestrian monitoring, and security cameras to support real-time pedestrian and vehicle analytics.
Powering the intelligent transformation
While AI adoption is still in its infancy, Huawei feels that it’s a technology that will benefit several industries. Partner companies such as YITU and CCi Intelligence demonstrated AI applications in the fields such as campus, finance, power sector, medical care, and intellectual property protection, making AI applications easier to use and accelerating the intelligent transformation of the industry.
The company also intends to adopt a more heterogeneous computing model to run alongside existing computing architectures, which in turn would make AI adoption much more seamless. Through this much more manageable adoption, the company hopes to accelerate AI usage and adoption to at least 50% by the year 2024.
