Warm hints: The word in this article is about 714 and reading time is about 6 minutes. Guidance: On Monday, August 21, the United States announced the extension of its "temporary general license" to Huawei, and on Friday, August 23, Huawei will announce a blockbuster news to the world.
Huawei will hold Conference on Ascend 910 AI processor and Mind Spore computing framework
Reporters learned that on that day, Huawei will hold a conference on Ascend 910 AI processor and Mind Spore computing framework. At the meeting, Huawei will release major technologies related to AI.
Public opinion has noted that this is not the first time Huawei has released major technology in recent years. At the Huawei Developers Conference on August 9, the company released its own “Hongmeng” operating system. According to AFP, China Telecom giant Huawei is competing with Android in a very special but lucrative market thanks to its new mobile operating system, Hongmeng Operating System.
On the same day, Huawei also announced that it would launch its own map service, named Map Kit, in October this year.
Huawei actively treats the US ban and breaks through the technology field again
According to the Russian Satellite News Agency website, Map Kit is not directly for consumers, but to encourage software developers to propose applications based on their mapping capabilities. Huawei Map Suite will connect to third-party mobile applications and local map service providers in about 150 countries and regions, the company said. Huawei Map Suite will be available in 40 languages.
Some people believe that Map Kit will be another weapon for Huawei after Hongmeng.
As for Huawei’s recent frequent “bright sword” in the important technical field, Li Zheng, a scholar of the Chinese Academy of Modern International Relations, said in an interview with Reference News Network that Huawei’s performance was both rational and positive after being treated unfairly by the United States. On the one hand, Huawei has actively defended the unfair treatment of the US government from the legal level; on the other hand, Huawei has demonstrated strong self-reliance to the outside world through its long-term accumulation and frequent release of important technological achievements, and I believe that the forthcoming release of AI technology will also be one of the important products. Huawei has delivered an important signal to the outside world by releasing technology in the field of “Hongmeng” and AI, that Huawei can develop itself without relying on American enterprises, and that the US suppression of Huawei cannot cut off its development.
Public opinion believes that Huawei’s recent half-yearly results, in the face of U.S. pressure, illustrate some problems. Huawei’s first half-year earnings, which were listed in the “Entity List” by the United States, showed a 23.2% year-on-year increase in revenue in the first half of the year, reaching 40.13 billion yuan. According to Bloomberg, Huawei said its profit margin reached 8.7% in the first half of 2019. In the first half of the year, smartphone shipments (including honor) surged 24% year-on-year to 118 million units.
Reporters learned that Liang Hua, chairman of Huawei Publishing, said in his speech: “We also need to objectively see that before May, Huawei’s revenue grew faster, and after the list of entities, because of the existence of market inertia, it also achieved growth. Huawei is still facing great difficulties. We need to invest a lot of human and material resources in version switching, supply continuity management, and ensuring delivery to global customers, which may have an impact on our future business performance. Just like that bad airplane, we still need to continue to mend holes. Operators’business is basically almost mended. Now the focus is on consumer business, and we still have to struggle for survival.
Liang Hua said that the difficulties of the external environment may temporarily affect the pace of Huawei’s progress, but it will not change the direction of progress. Huawei still insists on the strategic direction unchanged. Huawei will survive, first of all, to ensure the survival of the company, while insisting on investment in the future. It plans to invest 120 billion yuan in R&D this year. It is believed that after overcoming short-term difficulties and challenges, Huawei will enter a new period of development.
