Huawei, a leading global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices, participated at the Ai Everything x Restart Dubai Summer Conference, the first major conference held in the emirate as it returns to its full economic, social, and tourism activities. Taking part as one the exhibitors, the company has demonstrated its support for the reopening of Dubai’s economy.
The event celebrated the UAE’s aspirations and achievements in the field of artificial intelligence (AI), which Huawei, as a subject expert, supports through its state of the art technologies that help to accelerate intelligence. These were showcased during the Ai Everything x Restart Dubai Summer Conference, including Huawei’s AI ecosystem, AI Full Stack, All-Scenario portfolio, and cutting-edge AI computing products.
Li Shi, CEO of Huawei UAE, said: “Artificial Intelligence is the new force driving society and industrial transformation. It has proven its value to society more than ever before in the past few months, deployed in numerous forms to fight the spread of COVID-19. At the Ai Everything x Restart Dubai Summer Conference, Huawei has set the stage for how deploying AI solutions will form the bedrock of the digital world that can support the countries in the Middle East to realize their digital transformation visions for public and private sector entities alike. Dubai steadily elevates its position as a global leader in the adoption of innovative and highly-productive technologies such as AI, supporting the UAE strategy of Building a Responsible AI Nation and we at Huawei are proud to support this vision.”
“AI is the new general-purpose technology. There are clear signs that AI will trigger change in a whole host of industries. From energy to healthcare and transportation, AI will greatly boost automation in almost all aspects of organizations and governments. The future of AI is one we all will share. To bring the benefits of digital technology to more people, all countries need to work together across disciplines and industry sectors. Huawei is committed to working closely with our customers and partners to support our communities by delivering industry specific AI solutions, building new ecosystems together, and nurturing local ICT talents – all of which will accelerate building a fully connected, intelligent, and digitally-enabled society across the Middle East,” added Shi.
AI is the strongest driving force behind migrating industry applications to the cloud. Huawei has been researching AI chips and algorithms for years, and is able to build a platform across devices, edges, and the cloud, and provide a full-stack AI portfolio for all scenarios. Together with its partners around the world, Huawei Cloud is taking the intelligent transformation of the industry to a new level and making effective and reliable AI affordable.
Huawei’s AI portfolio comprises a comprehensive suite of solutions that can be combined to create customized solutions for any application. These include full-stack AI-enabled servers that offer unrivalled computing power for digital transformation.
Huawei estimates that in the coming five years, AI computing alone will account for more than 80% of computing power used around the world and earlier this year, Huawei announced it will invest 1.5 billion dollars over the next five years in creating a global artificial intelligence (AI) ecosystem. The investment will be used to nurture one million AI developers and support 3,000 software development partners and 1,000 universities and research centers. The company will apply AI technologies to all of its products, especially focusing on developing AI chips that will enable AI technologies.
