Huawei launches intelligent computing business

26 Apr 2019

Huawei unveiled its new Huawei Intelligent Computing Business Department alongside its Atlas AI computing platform and FusionServer Pro intelligent servers. Huawei also announced an intelligent computing talent development plan to support Singapore's "Smart Nation 2015" strategy.

According to its "Smart Nation 2025" plan, Singapore is rapidly transforming from digital to intelligent. Computing, as the core driving force of these intelligent requirements, is facing challenges in computing power and management.

Huawei's x86-based FusionServer Pro intelligent servers and the full-stack, all-scenario Atlas AI computing platform for AI applications launched at the summit demonstrate superior compute power and intelligent management. These top-notch products can help customers in Singapore and Asia Pacific to implement the intelligent transformation of infrastructure to better compete and succeed in a fully connected, intelligent world.

It is estimated that the AI market in Singapore will reach nearly USD1 billion by 2022, and with an annual growth rate of more than 42%, it will reach USD16 billion by 2030.

As the creator and leader of global intelligent computing, Huawei is not only actively promoting AI industrialisation but is also taking the initiative to shoulder the social responsibility of AI knowledge popularisation. Since 2019, Huawei has sponsored a series of AI knowledge training and skill competitions for university students in Singapore.

It will later release a more detailed and systematic plan for local AI talent development, aiming to promote the development of the AI ecosystem in Singapore to support the country's "Smart Nation" blueprint.

Huawei demonstrated how its full-stack, all-scenario AI solution facilitates digital transformation in many industries.

Delegates from National University of Singapore, SAP and Intel made keynote speeches or participated in roundtable discussions around AI and technological innovation. In addition, Huawei, customers, and partners shared the latest application and practice experience of intelligent computing in their industries at the summit sessions on Smart Finance, Internet Innovation, and AI Innovation.

Huawei also showcased a full range of cutting-edge products, including chips, intelligent acceleration components, intelligent servers, ARM servers, AI computing platforms, and mobile data centres (MDC).
