At Huawei Connect 2018, Huawei released its AI strategy for the first time, focusing on AI basic research and collaboration with global research institutes and developers to build an AI ecosystem.
At Huawei Developer Conference (HDC) 2020 Cloud, Huawei showcased a holistic package of its base of research in computer vision and released the Computer Vision plan and invited global Artificial Intelligence (AI) experts to participate in the research.
The Atlas AI computing platform powered by Huawei Ascend AI processors will provide powerful computing to support this plan. The research results will be implemented in Huawei’s MindSpore, the all-scenario AI computing framework.
“Huawei has invested heavily in the basic research of computer vision with focus on data, knowledge, and models. In the past two years, Huawei has published more than 80 papers at leading AI conferences and journals such as CVPR, ICCV, NeurIPS, and ICLR. Huawei has made many groundbreaking achievements. These research results are opened to the industry in the forms of academic papers and source code. We invite global AI developers to research, develop, and deploy AI based on Huawei’s existing research results.” Said Tian Qi, Chief Scientist of Computer Vision, Noah’s Ark Laboratory at Huawei, and IEEE Fellow, shared the latest research progress in computer vision.
At the event, Professor Tian Qi introduced the computer Vision plan, which incorporates six sub-plans. They are the following:
- Data Iceberg Plan: Use a small amount of annotated data to unleash the potential of massive unannotated data and support model training in small sample scenarios.
- Data Magic Cube Plan: Use multi-modal quantification, alignment, and fusion strategies to enhance the learning capability of models in real-world scenarios.
- Model High-touching Plan: Build large models on the cloud to explore the performance limits of various vision tasks.
- Mode Slimming Plan: Build efficient computing models on the device side to help various chips complete the complex inference.
- Generic Vision Plan: Define vision pre-training tasks to build generalized vision models.
- V-R Integration Plan: Direct computer vision to real artificial intelligence via virtual-real integration.
“We welcome global AI researchers to join Huawei’s Vision Plan to innovate and explore the future together. The powerful computing capability of Huawei Atlas AI computing platform will accelerate the implementation of the Vision Plan. The research results will be fully implemented on Huawei’s all-scenario AI computing framework MindSpore and open to the industry, helping every AI developer.” Tian Qi added.

New Huawei Cloud solutions will increase digital growth of automobile sector
On November 20, Huawei attended the Automotive Industry Digital Intelligence Upgrade Summit Forum in Suzhou, China. During the event, the company unveiled a new Huawei Cloud architecture and a few solutions that can hype the digital growth of automobile industries.
As per the input revealings, the latest cloud infrastructure is 1+3+M+N. This framework applies to both Chinese as well as global automotive sectors. Alongside the digital aspect, the newly-released cloud architecture will also increase networking growth.
What does 1+3+M+N reflect?
The latest Huawei Cloud architecture has a hidden meaning and motto. Let’s understand the innovative term in more detail:
1 vehicle storage and computing network
The new cloud architecture will support Huawei Cloud’s global vehicle storage and computing network framework. In other words, it will aim to develop a unified networking coverage for automobiles across the globe.
So far, the respective framework has offered services in more than 170 countries worldwide. Moreover, it has integrated with the KooVerse computing network and has made the global deployment of the Internet of Vehicles possible.
3 ultra-large data centers to develop a car zone
To make an efficient, eco-friendly, and secure automobile zone, the Chinese tech maker has established three leading cloud data centers in Ulanqab, Gui’an, and Wuhu. These regions in China support the entire manufacturing purposes.
M distributed IoV nodes
Consequently, Huawei keeps associating with different operators to initiate high-end and distributed IoV (Internet of Vehicles). Thus, this development will make transporting IoV data and details to the cloud sector easier.
N vehicle-specific data access points
Huawei Cloud department will deploy approx 50 vehicle-specific data access points. This step will allow the transfer of driving details and other development notes in the cloud without any hindrance.
Huawei Cloud Solutions:
Additionally, Huawei has also released a handful of cloud solutions for the automobile industry. To begin with, the company has launched the R&D driving solution. Ultimately, it will help in collecting and verifying autonomous driving algorithms.
Furthermore, Huawei Cloud has brought the AI development ModelArts solution to support efficient training. Accordingly, it will enhance the training activity by 30% and will reduce the overall time consumption by 50%.
Ahead, the company has revealed a software-oriented car solution. As the name suggests, it will be an aid in the car-cloud collaboration and will support the development of car-related applications and services.
Huawei Connect 2022 introduces new cloud-network solutions in Dubai
Huawei conducted the Connect 2022 conference in Dubai on October 12 and introduced numerous cloud-network solutions. Besides, the manufacturer also presented several programs that can elevate digital development in the region.
Describing the merits of Intelligent Cloud-Network Solutions, Huawei quotes that these services will aid the network requirements in Dubai. Further, it will provide benefits to operators and consumers in several other aspects.
The cloud-network solution mainly confines three major functionalities: CloudFabric 3.0, CloudCampus 3.0, and CloudWan 3.0. Together, these capabilities will bridge the gap between operators and advanced network technologies.
Let’s read about these three attributes in more detail:
This mechanism provides new facilities and services for L3.5 ADN (Autonomous Driving Network) technology. Moreover, it comprises universal management features, interconnection, better verification, and risk prediction for applications and networks.
This mechanism targets the enterprises and their goals. Further, it eases the campus network covering four major corners. These are Access, Branch, Architecture, and Operations & Maintenance (O&M).
In terms of inclusion, the mechanism consists of the first enterprise-class Wi-Fi 7 AP AirEngine 8771-X1T, core switch Cloud Engine S16700, and 4-in-1 hyper-converged gateway NetEngine AR5710.
WAN reflects – Wide Area Network. Thus, this solution works toward achieving enhanced and improved connectivity in larger areas. On the other hand, it provides ultra-high-density services to the operators with the help of a NetEngine 8000 F8 router.
Consequently, these components will provide aggregate network facilities in the region.
Apart from the cloud-network technology, the Chinese tech maker along with IEEE-UAE and UAE’s Ankabut and Commercial Bank of Kuwait (CBK) also revealed the high-definition L3.5 Data Center ADN White Paper automation.
Ultimately, this solution improves the network framework of the enterprises. Besides, it also enriches the operational functions of the enterprises and reduces their capital expenditures and operating expenses.
Huawei Connect 2022 has proved as a boon for Dubai operators. The Chinese firm has offered several new technologies and solutions to the region. It would be worth seeing what effective changes will these solutions provide to the region in the time ahead.
