Huawei to beat Qualcomm, Nvidia with new AI chips

Moreover, around 90% of the device users would have a smart digital assistant. It will also help the Chinese company to mark a debut against the world's top AI and cloud-based companies in the U.S. Huawei is shifting into AI chips business for enterprises and consumer applications.

The move, which will see Huawei use its own chips in its servers for the first time, comes as China is looking to speed up the development of its semiconductor market here amid a fierce trade stand-off with the United States that has underscored the country's reliance on imported technology.

While there are a lot of mature players in the AI chip field, Huawei's entry to the sector is somewhat "accidental". Huawei said the chip cannot only process data faster than competitors but would train machine learning models in minutes. Meanwhile, the Ascend 310 is designed for internet-connected devices such as smartwatches, smartphones and other IoT (Internet of Things) devices. "Since we do not sell to third parties, there is no direct competition between Huawei and chip vendors", Xu said on Wednesday, in response to questions about competition from companies such as Qualcomm, AMD and Nvidia."We provide hardware and cloud computing service". Huawei's cloud services accounted for 9% of the company's revenue in 2017, growing by 35% year-on-year.

But it does not plan to directly compete with global chipmakers as Ascend 910 and 310 will not be sold to third parties.

"AI will change jobs and skills in a way that is quite different from previous revolutions", said Xu.

"Huawei's AI strategy is built on top of continued investment in basic technologies and talent training", Chairman Eric Xu told the Huawei Connect conference in Shanghai.

He noted that it has presented Huawei with new opportunities, helped strengthen its existing products and services, and helped improve its internal operation management to become more efficient and competitive as a whole.

Huawei will continue investing heavily in AI technologies and human resources to further develop and prepare itself to be a leader in the industry.

"I think this is a very natural phenomenon in the business", he added. Created to build an AI infrastructure covering the end, edge and cloud, the new Atlas includes the terminal-facing Atlas 200 AI accelerator module, the DC-facing Atlas 300 AI accelerator card, the edge-oriented Atlas 500 AI edge station, and the Atlas 800 AI appliance for enterprises.
