Huawei has announced the official launch of the Atlas AI computing platform to the market, unlocking a new chapter on the Atlas commercial roadmap.
The Huawei Atlas AI computing platform is powered by Huawei’s Ascend series AI processors. Atlas offers various product form factors, such as accelerator modules, cards, AI edge stations, and appliances, providing an all-scenario AI infrastructure solution for the device-edge-cloud. It applies to fields of applications such as smart city, carriers, finance, Internet, and electric power.
During the launch, Hou Jinlong, President of Huawei Cloud & AI Products & Services, said that Huawei will deploy a three plus one intelligent computing industry strategy based on its five types of proprietary core chips for computing, network, storage, management, and AI. Huawei aims to address the computing requirements in the device-edge-cloud scenarios by leveraging three platforms: the x86, AI, and ARM computing platforms. The three platforms are the foundation for Huawei’s full-stack, all-scenario AI solutions. Meanwhile, Huawei will build an intelligent computing ecosystem around the three platforms, working with partners to lay the cornerstones for customers’ digital and intelligent transformation.
“AI as a new general-purpose technology will become a new basic capability to change every industry and organization,” said Ma Haixu, Director of the Huawei Intelligent Computing Business Department. “Huawei has always advocated providing inclusive AI that is affordable, effective, and reliable. As a vital part of Huawei’s AI blueprint, the Atlas AI computing platform has been applied in smart city, carrier, finance, Internet, and electric power industries. Huawei has jointly innovated with partners to launch AI-facing best practices, empowering customers with high-performance, all-scenario industry solutions to embrace pervasive intelligence.”
