Huawei, emphasizing 30 years of connectivity, today released its computing strategy, which includes breakthroughs in architecture innovation, investment in the whole scene processor family, insisting on a business strategy of doing something but not doing something, and building an open ecosystem. Hu Houkun, Vice Chairman of Huawei, revealed that Huawei has been laying out its computing for 10 years. Huawei is not only a company that makes links, but also an indispensable part of linking and computing to support the future intelligent world.
Hu Houkun believes that the future will be a big blue sea for the computing industry. Data from Gartner show that the computing industry is expected to exceed $2 trillion by 2023.
During the group visit after the meeting, Hu also answered questions about 5G patents, AI and computing. The following is a summary record of the interview:
1. What is Ren Zhengfeis idea of selling 5G patents? Is there any sales progress? Potential buyers?
Hu Houkun: Its not particularly complicated that Ren mentioned that 5G patents can be sold. Everyone knows that the 5G market is progressing very fast, and there are many disputes about the supply of 5G to China. If patents are sold, on the one hand, more competition can be generated in the global supply chain, which will greatly promote the development of users and industries. Huawei is also very happy to see this development. On the other hand, there are also many doubts about Hua5G solutions, such as security issues. Of course, Huawei believes that this is not a basis, more suspicious. If we master 5G in a commercial way, it will help us to reduce our doubts about security.
2. Huawei has just released its computing strategy. What kind of background is it based on?
Hu Houkun: Huawei released its overall computing strategy today, but Huawei started 10 years ago. For example, last year we released a full-stack scenario AI solution, and today we have done a more systematic combing.
Huaweis system formation strategy in the field of computing is a matter of course. First, from the perspective of Huaweis strategy, Huawei will surely usher in an intelligent world in the future, and Huawei must make it possible to have an intelligent world. In essence, the intelligent world consists of two parts, one is connection and the other is calculation. Connection and computing are fundamental technologies for the whole intelligent world. Huawei must do well in connection and computing for its future strategic positioning.
We need to use these two pedestals to enable all walks of life.
Secondly, the computing industry itself has also taken a critical time node, providing Huawei with opportunities. Computing model is changing, Artificial Intelligence Computing will become the mainstream, the amount of computing data is very large, we use a word: violent computing. This gives Huawei an opportunity to solve problems only if they exist, and the market is very big.
3. Huawei AI technology is very good, but what is the moral framework behind AI technology products?
Hu Houkun: Huawei AI architecture is at the bottom, more processors and so on. Huawei doesnt use it for himself. Huawei will ensure that technology is first and foremost secure; data protection will be guaranteed in a secure and credible state.
At the top level of AI, there is a lot of discussion about its application. Everyone is trying to use standards to prevent AI from being misused. Although Huawei does not develop applications, we are all actively involved in the discussion. Such discussions and debates are conducive to reaching consensus and criteria for judgment.
4. Several server companies using ARM architecture are dead. Huaweis software and hardware development in ARM architecture?
Huang Jing, Vice President of Huawei IT Product Line: Billions of mobile phones are based on ARM architecture, and millions of applications are also based on ARM ecosystem. Therefore, the advantages of ARM in the edge and end-side, the ecosystem will certainly be his advantages, and then gradually extend to the data center. Previously, data centers based on ARM architecture could not be used in cloud and data centers, and the core problem was performance. Huaweis Kunpeng 920 released this year is compatible with ARM, but our multi-core, wide bandwidth and other advantages make its performance the best.
Hu Houkun: A good architecture is not enough for the success of the computing industry. Huawei believes that architecture and processors are the foundation, and pragmatic business cooperation is also needed. The success of the computing industry ultimately depends on a successful ecosystem.
What are the judgments of 5 and 5 G deployment revenue, including in Asia?
Hu Houkun: Hua5G has made very good progress in the world, including in Asia. In recent months, less attention has been paid to 5G commercial contracts, because there are too many 5G commercial contracts. So far, there are more than 50 commercial contracts.
Because 5G commercial deployment has reached an acceleration period, but revenue will take some time. By the end of next year, you may be able to see more clearly. By that time, the first phase of Chinas 5G deployment had come to an end. 6. How does Huawei attract developers? What are the advantages? Hu Houkun: Huawei will provide powerful development tools and support based on technological innovation. Huawei also has the advantage of contacting many industries, in terms of 2B, it has a deep connection with customers. Although Huawei is a technology company, Huawei is a company that uses technology to help customers solve problems. The first digital wave will focus on the 2C domain, but the next one will focus on the 2B domain. Huawei regards the digitization of 2B as an important part of its development.
