New Arabic LLM is a 100-billion-parameter model that runs on the latest standard Arabic dialect. It allows industrial operators to produce their own AI model based on multiple local languages in the fields of banking, education, medicine, and more.


During the Huawei Cloud Summit in Cairo, the company explained that the new Arabic LLM has an auto speech recognition feature with a 96% accuracy rate. It can eventually work in 20+ Arabic-speaking countries without any problems.

Apart from local culture, history, and customs knowledge, Huawei Arabic LLM model has also fed on industry data sets to cover subjects like digital power, oil-gas, and AI. The President of Huawei Cloud’s global market and sales services Jacqueline Shi says:
