Huawei eyes en­ter­prise sec­tor

Shanghai Daily - - BUSINESS -

Huawei Tech­nolo­gies re­leased two ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence-fea­tured sever chips yes­ter­day to in­te­grate with data cen­ters and cloud ser­vices, un­der­lin­ing the com­pany’s strat­egy to take its smart­phone suc­cess into the en­ter­prise mar­ket.

Huawei’s As­cend se­ries chips are seen as ri­vals to Nvidia and Google’s TPU (Ten­sor Pro­cess­ing Unit), the world’s most pow­er­ful chips. But Eric Xu, Huawei’s ro­tat­ing chair­man, said in Shang­hai that China’s largest telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions gear and mo­bile phone maker would not sell in­de­pen­dent AI chips but bun­dle them with en­ter­prise ser­vices like the cloud.

Huawei has im­ple­mented a “full stack” AI strat­egy cov­er­ing var­i­ous hard­ware and ser­vices, in­clud­ing new chips, said Xu. Huawei will in­vest in a range of AI ar­eas, in­clud­ing cal­cu­la­tion ca­pac­ity, se­cu­rity, al­go­rithms, au­to­ma­tion, tech­nol­ogy syn­chro­niza­tion, plat­forms and tal­ent, to es­tab­lish a “more con­nected world.”
