Huawei today unveiled an important AI computing product at its full connection conference (HC)
According to introduction,Atlas 900 is the fastest AI training platform in the world. It uses the industry's single chip Rising 910 AI processor with 32 Da Vinci AI Cores embedded in each Rising 910 AI processor. The single chip provides twice the industry's computing power.It contains 1024 nodes, and its total computing power is 256P-1024P FLOPS@FP16, which is equivalent to the computing power of 500,000 PCs.
The computing cluster can provide computing power for training large data sets'neural networks, train AI models such as images, videos and voices more quickly, and accelerate the commercial process of exploring the mystery of the universe, forecasting weather, exploring oil and accelerating automatic driving.
The data show that the ReNet-50 training at Atlas 900 is the world's fastest and time-consuming only 59.8 seconds. In the gold standard ResNet-50 model, which measures AI's computing power, the Atlas 900 has completed its training with only 59.8 seconds, which is 10 seconds faster than the original world record.
Earlier this year, Huawei had launched server chip Kunpeng 920, 5G base station chip Tianquan, baseband chip Balong 5000, mobile phone processor Kirin 990, Hongmeng system, AI chip rise 910. The newly released Atlas 900 Cluster will mainly meet the computational needs of scientific exploration and basic innovation.
With the release of Atlas 900,Hu Houjian, vice chairman of Huawei, also systematically interprets Huawei's knowledge of computing industry trends and its computing strategy, especially as a general computing business strategy. Is working for Huawei Many publications at the conference also point to the improvement of Kupeng's computational ecology.
1. Computational Ecology of the Aggressive Kupeng
Under the situation of independent and controllable domestic science and technology industry, in the past few months, we can also clearly see that Huawei Kuipeng Computing Ecology has ushered in a small climax. Many governments have announced that they will build Kuipeng Industry with Huawei, which will break the monopolistic leading position of foreign manufacturers in general computing. In July, Huawei signed a cooperation framework with Xiamen Government. In August, Huawei Kunpeng Tianfu Laboratory and Kunpeng Ecological Base officially settled in Chengdu Tianfu New Area; in September, Shenzhen announced the signing of a strategic cooperation contract with Huawei for the National Kunpeng Industrial Demonstration Zone.
At the scene, Hu Houkun said,Huawei promotes and builds Kuipeng Industrial Ecology Base in all parts of the country, including gathering partners, developing application demonstration, training industrial talents and incubating industrial standards. We believe that more partners will join Kuipeng Industrial Ecology in the future.
He further analyzed at the media meeting that each region had different industrial bases and advantages, and Kuipeng Ecology would be built in combination with the characteristics of the local industrial structure.
In particular, Huawei's Dapeng ecosystem refers to the IT infrastructure that Huawei provides for various industry partners on the basis of the Dapeng processor, helping to build a variety of industry applications. As a whole, the two servers-oriented processors in Huawei's self-research are the core
But the reason why it is called ecosystem is that Huawei has built a special server based on Kunpeng chip.
At present, there are many top players in Kupeng Industry Partnership Circle, such as User Friends, Taiji, Softcom and so on. In addition, Huawei has also invested in the construction of Kupeng community in Huada to provide more support for the innovation system of Kupeng ecology. Huawei had previously announced that it would invest 3 billion yuan in five years to support the ecological development of Kunpeng industry.
Huawei believes that the computing industry will usher in a new golden decade in the next decade. According to Gartner data, the size of the computing industry will exceed 2 trillion in 2023.
You can rest assured to cooperate with us.
II. Huawei's computing industry strategy
Two years ago, Huawei released its construction.
Hu Houkun revealed that Huawei's observations on computing trends lie in the fact that computing has become an extension of human capabilities and the computing model itself has changed over the past 70 years, from rule-based CPU computing to statistics-based NPU computing, which is more suitable for computing scenarios in the AI era (such as voice and vision).
When the calculation has entered the intelligent age, several key technical key words are:
"It's a systematic look at Huawei's computing industry strategy and will have four," Mr. Hu said.Architecture innovation, investment-wide processor, business strategy。
Huawei believes that computing is highly dependent on the energy efficiency of computing. Computing is the need of industrial development. Huawei itself also needs a framework to cover all business needs of edge, end and cloud. The Da Vinci architecture is a framework that can meet the needs of various industries, but also needs powerful processors. Huawei has already been based on different fields. Jing has introduced four processors: Kupeng, Shengteng, Kirin and Hongku. Huawei will also introduce more processors.
In business, Huawei will not sell processors alone, but will launch various cloud services. It will also adhere to the openness of hardware and software, and open to partners. In addition, Huawei does not use applications, but will put in a dedicated team to help partners migrate applications and applications.
In the end, the computing industry is an open industry that is highly dependent on ecology and requires global collaboration. In 2015, Huawei first released the soil plan, and over 1.3 million developers and more than 14,000 ISVs have been developed over the past four years. Today, Huawei will upgrade
All along, Huawei Full Link Conference has been positioned for ICT industry, but after four years of development, judging from the content of today's conference, this is another important occasion to re-recognize Huawei. This company is building artificial intelligence and interconnection of all things for the future.。 It must be a long and difficult road, but Huawei seems confident.
As the vice-chairman of Huawei said,Over the past six months, Huawei has been under tremendous pressure, but it is in good shape now. Like the weather in Shanghai, it is cool in autumn and light in clouds and breezes.
