Huawei launches machine learning capable new Ascend-series AI chips

Huawei Takes Aim at AI Sector With Two New Chips

Chinese major phone maker Huawei has launched two self-developed AI chips - Ascend 310 as well as Ascend 910 - which is being introduced as the single-chip with the largest computing density in the world, Yicai.com reported. Moreover, around 90% of the device users would have a smart digital assistant.

Ramping up chip design is also part of Huawei's broader plan to increase its enterprise business, which only accounted for 9% of its total revenue previous year. Huawei's AI portfolio includes its new Ascend series of AI chips - the world's first AI IP and chip series designed for a full range of scenarios (see below for more information). Huawei's full-stack portfolio includes the new Ascend AI chips, chip enablement, a training and inference framework, and application enablement. Huawei claims that the chip will be able to process data faster than its competitors and has the ability to train networks within minutes.

Huawei also unveiled Ascend 310, a chipset for computing on smart devices, which is available right away.

The new Ascend chips are based on a unified architecture capable of scaling up from lightweight IoT apps to heavy-duty data center deployments, Huawei Technologies Co.

Huawei will likely lean on its new Ascend series of chips to take on sever-powering duties, as these come with machine learning capabilities, and have been touted as challengers for chipsets from Qualcomm and Nvidia.

The letter said the detective told the witness she had no reason to cooperate with prosecutors and "less is more". His lawyer, Benjamin Brafman, said in court that he believes Ms Evans lied to the grand jury about what happened.

Huawei has been banned from selling telecoms equipment in the United States for several years on security concerns as the American authorities allege that its technology can be used to spy on customers.

"AI technology is changing a number of industries - if not disrupting - and they are also changing the enterprises working in these industries".

"AI will help us to find more efficient solutions to problems we already know how to fix".

Huawei's strategy itself has five areas of focus: Invest in AI research; build a full-stack AI portfolio - which the company has now rolled out; develop an open ecosystem and the talent to match; strengthen the existing portfolio; and drive greater operational efficiency within the company. And that there are enough data scientists and subject matter experts to make it all add up to real business value. "In the consumer market, HiAI will bring true intelligence to our consumer devices, making them smarter than ever", Xu noted.

Xu also announced Huawei's full-stack portfolio of AI products and cloud services.
