Huawei to sell servers powered by own chips


New services and new products, which happen to be built on-top of a new series of AI chips, known as Ascend.

With its full-stack AI portfolio, Huawei aims to provide pervasive intelligence to help drive industry development and build a fully connected, intelligent world.

Xu believes the growth of smart devices, digital assistants and data analysis will make AI a general objective technology that will change every industry and organisation, but that the speed of adoption is yet to match the rate of developments in the technology. According to Xu, the Ascend 910 can process more data in a faster amount of time than its competitors and help train networks in a matter of minutes.

Xu said the company would in the telecom sector adopt SoftCOM AI to make the network more efficient. The company's full-stack, all-scenario AI portfolio is created to provide support for both Huawei Cloud EI and HiAI, as well as other services.

The world's No. 2 smartphone brand by sales volume is on track to sell 200 million phones this year, up from 153 million units last year, thanks to its new AI-capable phones with its Kirin 970 chips, he noted.

The microchips are the Ascend 310, designed for smart devices, and the Ascend 910, which is for cloud computing, reports Computerworld UK.

By this he meant chips for AI installations across everything from public and private clouds to industrial IoT and consumer devices, via the edge environments that bridge these worlds by bringing processing and intelligence closer to the point of need. Data utilization will reach 86% and AI services will be readily available, as prevalent as the air we breathe. The unified architecture also makes it easy to deploy, migrate, and interconnect AI applications across different scenarios, the company added.
