Huawei onthult toekomst van mobiele AI op IFA 2017

BERLIJN–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Huawei Consumer Business Group heeft op IFA 2017 een nieuw tijdperk in smartphonevernieuwing ingeluid. CEO Richard Yu onthulde in zijn keynote de visie van Huawei op de toekomst van kunstmatige intelligentie (AI), samenhangend met de lancering van de Kirin 970. Door de sterke punten van de cloud te combineren met de snelheid en responsiviteit van native AI-verwerking, brengt Huawei AI-ervaringen tot leven en verandert de wijze waarop we ons tot onze apparaten verhouden.

“Kijkend naar de toekomst van smartphones staan we op het punt een nieuw, spannend tijdperk te betreden”, zei Richard Yu, CEO van Huawei Consumer Business Group. “Mobiele AI staat gelijk aan On-Device-AI +AI in de Cloud. Huawei legt zich erop toe ‘smart’-elektronica om te vormen tot intelligente apparatuur, door middel van functies die van begin tot eind de ontwikkeling van chips, apparaten en de cloud ondersteunen. Het uiteindelijke doel is een significant betere gebruikservaring te verwezenlijken. Kirin 970 is de eerste in een reeks nieuwe stappen vooruit, richting AI-functies voor onze apparaten die de concurrentie ver achter zich laten.”



Huawei Reveals the Future of Mobile AI at IFA 2017

BERLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Today at IFA 2017, Huawei Consumer Business Group unveiled a new era in smartphone innovation. As part of CEO Richard Yu’s keynote address, he revealed Huawei’s vision for the future of artificial intelligence with the launch of the Kirin 970. By combining the power of the cloud with the speed and responsiveness of native AI processing, Huawei is bringing AI experiences to life and changing the way we interact with our devices.

“As we look to the future of smartphones, we’re at the threshold of an exciting new era,” said Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group. “Mobile AI = On-Device AI + Cloud AI. Huawei is committed to developing smart devices into intelligent devices by building end-to-end capabilities that support coordinated development of chips, devices, and the cloud. The ultimate goal is to provide a significantly better user experience. The Kirin 970 is the first in a series of new advances that will bring powerful AI features to our devices and take them beyond the competition.”

After years of development, Cloud AI has seen broad application, but user experience still has room for improvement, including latency, stability, and privacy. Cloud AI and On-Device AI can complement each other. On-Device AI offers strong sensing capabilities, which are the foundation of understanding and assisting people. Sensors produce a large amount of real-time, scenario-specific, and personalized data. Supported by strong chip processing capabilities, devices will become more cognitive of user needs, providing truly personalized and readily accessible services.

Kirin 970 is powered by an 8-core CPU and a new generation 12-core GPU. Built using a 10nm advanced process, the chipset packs 5.5 billion transistors into an area of only one cm². Huawei’s new flagship Kirin 970 is Huawei’s first mobile AI computing platform featuring a dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU). Compared to a quad-core Cortex-A73 CPU cluster, the Kirin 970’s new heterogeneous computing architecture delivers up to 25x the performance with 50x greater efficiency. Simply put, the Kirin 970 can perform the same AI computing tasks faster and with far less power. In a benchmark image recognition test, the Kirin 970 processed 2,000 images per minute, which was faster than other chips on the market.
