  • Resident Voices – Features voice recognition and semantic parsing technologies that enable city managers to understand the voice of each resident to gain insight into their needs.
  • Sensing the City – Uses image recognition and correlation analysis to explore the relationships between people, places, vehicles and things for the purpose of fostering harmony for all.
  • Resident Care – Integrates deep learning and correlation analysis throughout the service lifecycle to generate personalized resources for residents.
  • Enterprise Services – Applies multi-dimensional and correlation analysis to clarify the internal relationships of industries in the TEDA district for the purpose of accurately matching the availability of service resources throughout the enterprise lifecycle.

Vanke Deploys Huawei’s New Smart Campus Solution

As more industries harness digital transformation, smart campuses will boost business growth and drive global competitiveness. By building smart campuses, enterprises can gain a more comprehensive, deeper and more accurate understanding of customers’ needs, and can provide relevant, authentic and efficient customer experiences. With the goal of becoming an industry-wide platform enabler, Huawei has redefined the smart campus enablement platform using four key principles:

  • Smart model: Going beyond digitalization, the platform can enable interconnectivity, collaboration, integration and innovation.
  • Campus space: Space constraints are no longer a limitation, as campuses move from physical entities to virtual communities.
  • Business model: The platform can enable customers to transform from a traditional stand-alone model to a multi-dimensional business, and optimize their value through transaction sharing.
  • Campus operation: Operations are now visible, manageable, and controllable by changing the original plan-based operations into on-demand operations.

Huawei is deploying the industry’s first all-digital campus pilot project in its own offices around the world, which will be rolled out in 172 countries. Vanke, a leading China-based real estate developer, is also adopting Huawei’s Smart Campus solution to help transform its core business operations, optimize innovation and accelerate new opportunities in the real estate industry. The two companies are also collaborating to establish innovation laboratories, and jointly explore and invest in new scenarios and models to build an ecosystem for future developments.

Huawei is committed to working with customers in the long term and takes a future-oriented approach to drive enterprise digital transformation through the power of the platform. So far, 211 of the Fortune Global 500 companies (including 48 Fortune Global 100 companies) have selected Huawei as their digital transformation partner.

HUAWEI CONNECT 2018 is held at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Center and Expo Center from October 10 to 12. Under the theme of “Activate Intelligence”, this year’s HUAWEI CONNECT is an open, cooperative and shared forum to help all organizations stake their claim in the intelligent world. The best minds in the industry – including global ICT leaders, industry experts, and ecosystem partners – will gather to chart the way forward and explore new opportunities.

Decades of research, laboratory curiosities, and world-changing effect notes are starting to be implemented worldwide and the age of quantum is here.

Whenever we are talking about the atomic clock (which already 69 years old) or supercomputers, everything in the natural world can be described by quantum mechanics.

Although, the theory was born a century ago, what is notable about the effort now is that the challenges are no longer scientific but have become matters of engineering. A new industry is born and the future definitely looks exciting as the quantum industry covers far more than just quantum computing. Quantum technology harnesses the strange behavior of tiny particles for a whole range of applications, including navigation tools, enhanced imaging technology, and extremely precise timing devices.

Quantum techniques can also be used to improve the efficiency and capacity of communication channels on a global scale and the method used is Photonics.

The method is focused on the use of light particles, photons, to transmit or carry information. This has been proved to be a less resource-intensive process, since photons are more accessible than other sources of energy, and fiber cables weigh around 40 times less than cables currently used for telephone lines and broadband internet.

During the inaugural PICANTE Tech Conference Europe, we are bringing together industry leaders, scientist and will discuss (among other topics) the investment opportunities in Quantum Technology and Nanotech.

The panel discussion which is titled “Discussions and Investment Opportunities in Quantum Technology and Nanotech” will be joined by Dr. André Xuereb, Professor of Atomic and Quantum Physics at the University of Malta.

About Dr. André Xuereb

André Xuereb is physicist from Malta. He read for an undergraduate degree in mathematics and physics at the University of Malta, a Ph.D. in theoretical physics at the University of Southampton in the UK, and a master degree in entrepreneurship at the University of Malta. He is a professor of atomic and quantum physics at the University of Malta, is Science Policy Officer of the Malta Chamber of Scientists, represents Malta on several European research networks, and was recently elected as the first Maltese member of the Global Young Academy. André has an active career in science, having established and leading the quantum research group at the University of Malta, and co-owns an educational software startup.

PICANTE Tech Conference Europe is designed to bring both people and knowledge together and provides the excellent ecosystem of networking and learning opportunities without interruptions with emphasis on comfort and communication. After learning from genuine world-class experts and wayseers, meeting achievers shaping the B2B ecosystem, all attendees will get the chance to grab a drink and relax while networking at the evening social gathering.
