Huawei’s “True Ecology Quality” Eco Conference, Huawei’s consumer business CEO Yu Chengdong announced that “Huawei IOT ecological strategy will be fully upgraded to a full-scenario smart strategy. Huawei will revolve around HiAI, two the strategy of a large open platform and three layers of structured products creates a colourful smart home ecosystem for the industry.”
The upgrading of the home appliance industry faces the dual challenge of standards and experience. On the one hand, there is no uniform standard in the process of upgrading traditional household appliances to smart home appliances, and the enterprise self-built platform is an island. On the other hand, traditional home appliance companies and smart portals are not smart enough, there is a lack of communication between categories, and there is a lack of scene interaction. In this context, the home appliance industry needs a platform or a new ecology to break these barriers.
After years of accumulation, Huawei has the ability to comprehensively promote the upgrading of the home appliance industry and establish a “true ecology”. In the future, Huawei will continue to use HiAI as a strategic investment direction to provide a core driving force for all smart businesses. On the other hand, the HUAWEI HiLink platform will be upgraded to enrich the number of “1+8+N” three-tier structured products, select high-quality partners and products, and give consumers a variety of choices.
In the next 10 years, the most exciting change in the consumer sector is the interaction of all things and natural interactions. The hardware and software ecosystem moves from vertical to aggregate, and AI redefines the consumer end-user experience. The whole scene of intelligent life ecology that Huawei wants to build is an open ecology. Facing the whole ecology, Huawei HiAI intelligent terminal computing platform will provide technology open at the core, end and cloud levels, and empower global partners. With HiAI technology, it brings more computing power, richer scene-based APIs and supports more terminals, making applications more intelligent and powerful.
First, Huawei has accumulated deep AI capabilities in both cloud and terminal services. As early as 2017, Huawei’s consumer terminal business was the first to introduce the Kirin 970 chip with built-in NPU. It has been upgraded to the Kirin 980 chip and applied to the latest Mate and P series phones. Last year, Huawei Cloud launched the industry’s fastest Ascend chip – 256T computing, full HD video SoC AI chip.
The core side capability is open, mainly reflected in multi-framework, multi-operator support, and powerful computing power and rapid integration deployment capabilities. It can effectively break the bottleneck of end-side power consumption and computing power, and promote end-scale AI scale application. In Huawei’s full-scenario smart strategy, the end-side HiAI engine can easily integrate multiple AI capabilities with smart devices/APPs, making the terminal device/APP more intelligent and powerful. For example, let Huawei smart speakers interact more intelligently with people, and accomplish more tasks better. HiAI Service is open to partners in the cloud: HMS provides account, payment, push and other basic services; HAG integrated third-party atomization services.
