Huawei Atlas AI computing platform debuts at Ai Everything SummitMay 2, 2019
Huawei, a leading global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices, participated in the first Ai Everything Summit held in Dubai, UAE. Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President & Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, the first Ai Summit was hosted by the UAE National Program for Artificial Intelligence.
During the Ai Everything Summit, to which Huawei was a Platinum Sponsor, the company presented its global AI development strategy to government leaders, enterprise customers, and technology partners through a series of keynotes, panel discussions, and exhibits. Huawei showcased industry-leading AI infrastructure—including its Atlas AI computing platform—which comprises cloud, edge and terminal solutions, and builds on Huawei’s longstanding commitment to delivering an all-scenario AI portfolio that enables local industries to contribute in building a fully connected, intelligent world.
Jinshui Liu, Chief Architect of Huawei Intelligent Computing, delivered a keynote “AI Accelerates the Intelligent World” and also introduced how Huawei’s Atlas AI computing platform can help accelerate AI development, deployment, and applications.
Huawei Atlas AI computing platform – Covering the cloud, edge, and terminal
Computing power for AI needs to be deployed not only on the cloud but also at the edge and terminal to meet the real-time data processing for AI applications. The Huawei Atlas AI computing platform, based on Huawei self-developed Ascend series AI chips, includes a variety of product forms such as 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.
The Huawei Atlas 510 AI Edge Station, an innovative exploration of one-stop edge AI deployment, made its global debut at the summit. The innovation not only provides superior edge AI computing power, but also integrates multiple designs into one package, including power supply, waterproof, dust-proof, high and low-temperature tolerance, and network connection designs. It can be quickly installed and deployed along with municipal outdoor facilities, such as lamp poles, to support real-time pedestrian and vehicle analytics, accelerating intelligence.
Work with industry partners to accelerate the intelligent transformation
As a new general-purpose technology, AI will benefit all industries. Huawei has forged AI solutions for multiple industry applications with ecosystem partners. Within the Summit, Huawei partners 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.
Huawei will continue to work with local AI developers, research institutes and ecosystem partners to provide the UAE government and enterprise customers with pervasive intelligence.
