Huawei announced the official announcement of the new platform for the development of artificial intelligence. HiAi 2.0 will not only be easier to use but will also support a large number of devices
L & # 39;artificial intelligence a technology that promises to revolutionize our lives. Even if we were only at the beginning of this innovation, the applications certainly did not lack.
Huawei He was one of the first producers to present the true one with his SoC Kirin 970 last year dedicated units artificial intelligence. This enabled devices equipped with this processor to make texts, images and photo optimization much faster and more effective. In 2018, Huawei continues to improve with Kirin 980, found within the Mate 20 series, with processing time in machine learning halved. However, the idle force is useless if there are no software tools for its management: so it was born HiAi 2.0, a set of tools that act as a link to develop applications optimized by artificial intelligence.
HiAi 2.0: What will change Huawei versus earlier?
When Huawei introduced the P20 series in 2017, the first version of the HiAi 1.0 development platform came. You Wang Chenglu, Chairman of the CBG Software Division at Huawei Consumer Business Group, to discuss the possibilities of the old development system in order to highlight new features introduced with the new HiAi 2.0.
HiAi 1.0 its architecture was based on 3 levels of normal cloud optimize efficiency; the core at the physical level could be supported 90 different operations, supported end-level software (i.e. locally on the device) 22 APIs and finally, the cloud level could offer more 500 different services. HiAi 2.0 platform applications include image processing in the camera via Master AI, some third-party applications such as Prisma (an application that allows you to use the style of some of the famous painters and images in your imagery) and a Microsoft translator.
The basic architecture of the new HiAi 2.0 remained very similar, but Huawei decided to present some interesting news. In addition to improving the physical level, the new Kirin 980 NPU will be compatible with the new platform most AI frameworks more widely used, greatly increasing compatibility with various applications and helping developers of third-party manufacturers to integrate artificial intelligence into their products. There will be more Rich support for accessible APIs, in order to enhance existing features such as recognizing scenes, and introducing new and innovative ones, such as identifying and digitizing documents or increasing reality. The cloud level is also more useful, with suggestions and direct services.
In the end, Wang Chenglu revealed as a medicine that the new development package will be available supported by several devices, which belong to very different prices and uses; In fact, we are not just talking about smartphones, but also the benefits of HiAi 2.0 on tablets, laptops, and other smart devices.
Later we will get more detailed information about which devices will actually be included. Continue with our mobile section to stay up to date!
