Huawei Technologies Co officially launched its own computing framework for artificial intelligence on Friday, as the Chinese tech giant aims to develop a better alternative to Google's TensorFlow platform amid U.S. government restrictions.
"We have been making steady progress since we announced our AI strategy in October previous year", said Eric Xu, Huawei's rotating chairman.
According to the memo, Huawei, which employs almost 190,000 people around the world, is reforming its operation globally by granting more power to the frontline, cutting out reporting layers and eliminating inefficient posts.
For half-precision floating point (FP16) operations, Ascend 910 delivers 256 teraflops (floating-point operations per second).
Ascend 910 is Huawei's new artificial intelligence (AI) processor that belongs to the series of its Ascend-Max chipsets. "But you have to wait [until] our results in March", Eric Xu, Huawei's deputy chairman said at the company's headquarters in Shenzhen. "We promised a full-stack, all-scenario AI portfolio". "And today we delivered".Читайте также: Nigeria targets 2020 to be declared polio
Huawei will continue investing in AI processors for applications such as edge computing, autonomous driving, and training. The company also unveiled MindSpore, an AI computing framework that - along with the 910 - is supposedly twice as fast as Google's TensorFlow.
The MindSpore AI framework is adaptable to all scenarios - across all devices, edge, and Cloud environments - and provides on-demand cooperation between them. In a typical neural network for natural language processing (NLP), MindSpore has 20 percent fewer lines of core code than leading frameworks on the market, and it helps developers raise their efficiency by at least 50 percent.
Huawei Technologies has unveiled a new high-end artificial intelligence (AI) chip for servers, bidding to grow its share of the booming cloud services market even as the world's largest network equipment vendor battles a United States trade ban.
Huawei Technologies Co. expects US export restrictions to reduce annual revenue at its consumer devices business by about $10 billion, as the company is banned from buying American components like semiconductors and software.
According to the brand's plans, MindSpore is expected to go open source in the first quarter of 2020 to further promote AI expansion to the highest levels.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
