Xu said the company would continue to improve internal management and efficiency through AI.
At the third annual "Huawei Connect", a global event for the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) industry, the Chinese technology major announced its AI strategy. "In the consumer market, HiAI will bring true intelligence to our consumer devices, making them smarter than ever", Xu noted.
Huawei's AI push saw it sign a strategic agreement with Chinese search engine giant Baidu in December a year ago to build an open mobile AI ecosystem that covers platforms, technology, internet services, and content ecosystems. Its portfolio will also include an AI acceleration card, AI server, AI appliances and many other products. And that there are enough data scientists and subject matter experts to make it all add up to real business value.
