New Ascend 310 AI Chip Earns Huawei the Prestigious “World Leading Scientific and Technological Achievement Award” at the Fifth World Internet Conference

Today at the Fifth World Internet Conference (WIC), held today in Wuzhen, Zhejiang, under the theme of “Creating a Digital World for Mutual Trust and Collective Governance – Towards a Community with a Shared Future in Cyberspace,” Huawei’s Ascend 310 chip stood out among more than 400 technology achievements to win the conference’s World Leading Scientific and Technological Achievement award. This honor recognizes artificial intelligence (AI) system-on-chips (SoC) as having the industry’s strongest compute capabilities for edge computing scenarios, with support from the unified and scalable Da Vinci architecture. This marks the third consecutive year Huawei has received this award and the opportunity to showcase its innovation during the conference. Yan Lida, Director of the Board at Huawei and President of Huawei Enterprise Business Group, presented the achievement to the guests at the conference.

Yan Lida said: “Huawei’s new Ascend series of AI chips is the core component of Huawei’s AI solution and provides the key support. Huawei’s AI strategy is to invest in basic research and talent development; build a full-stack, all-scenario AI portfolio; and foster an open global ecosystem. Every year, Huawei invests 10 to 15 percent of our sales revenue in R&D, and this year our R&D investment will exceed CNY100 billion. Ascend 310 is the first chip in the Ascend series, which opens a new era of AI. Our advantage is not only to be able to do AI, but also to achieve synergy between AI and cloud, IoT, video, edge computing, big data and other technologies, to form an open “platform” that supports digital transformation for all industries. AI will be the latest technology Huawei makes available to customers and partners on the platform. We will work hard to make sure AI is no longer a technology only open to ones who have high qualification skills. Over the next three years, our aim is to work with one million AI developers to drive innovations in line with Huawei’s commitment to provide affordable, effective, and reliable AI, bringing intelligence across every enterprise and industry to build a fully connected, intelligent world.”

On October 10, 2018, Huawei officially released a full-stack all-scenario AI solution. ‘Full-stack’ means the solution provides powerful and cost-effective computing power, as well as low-barrier application development platforms that make AI data modeling, model training, and application development simpler, more agile, and more efficient. As an ‘all-scenario’ solution, it is able to drive pervasive intelligence across various device, edge, and cloud scenarios.

Ascend 310 is the industry’s most powerful AI SoC chip for edge computing scenarios. Currently, the most typical edge computing scenarios are security and protection, autonomous driving, and smart manufacturing. However, every edge computing scenario imposes severe constraints on space, energy consumption and computing power. Whether it’s on a fast-moving car or on a high-speed production line, a complex scientific study or a daily educational activity, Ascend 310 supports every industry with an cost-efficient and powerful computing energy. One Ascend 310 chip can achieve up to 16TOPS on-site calculations, supporting the simultaneous identification of 200 different objects including people, cars, obstacles and traffic signs; it can process thousands of pictures in one second. In October this year, Huawei and Audi demonstrated the chipset in L4 automatic driving. The vehicle was equipped with Huawei’s Mobile Data Center (MDC) vehicle-mounted computing unit and it was estimated that Huawei’s Ascend 310 chipset consumed only 200 watts of power in L4 automatic driving.

The other unique advantage of Ascend series is that it adopts Huawei’s innovative unified and extensible Da Vinci architecture, which achieves full coverage – from the ultimate low energy consumption scenario to high computing power scenario – something not yet seen in any other architecture on the market. The Da Vinci architecture is able to facilitate AI application deployment, migration, and collaboration in different scenarios at the same time, which vastly improves software development efficiency, and accelerates AI application in various industries.

Huawei advocates ‘AI for the benefit of all,’ and aims to work with customers, industry partners, and academic institutions to achieve win-win outcomes and enable omnipresent AI. Our vision and mission is to bring digital to every person, home and organization for a fully connected, intelligent world. More information about Huawei’s AI strategies and full-stack all-scenario AI solutions is available at https://www.huawei.com/en/press-events/news/2018/10/huawei-hc-2018-eric-xu-ai.

The WIC is a global annual event held by Cyberspace Administration of China and Zhejiang Provincial People’s government. It aims to create an international forum for connecting China and the rest of the world and a Chinese forum for the global sharing and governance of the Internet. The conference fosters exchanges to enable consensus, cooperation, and win-win outcomes. The fifth WIC is being held in Wuzhen, Zhejiang province on November 7, 2018, and will run for three days.

China based innovation, CDMOs and Parallel Approvals driving huge growth in manufacturing at CPhI China

Significant increase in exhibitors driven by bio growth at bioLIVE and separate nutraceuticals event.

CPhI & P-MEC China (#CPhIChina and #PMECChina) – co-organized by UBM EMEA, CCCMHPIE, and UBM Sinoexpo – takes place at the Shanghai New International Expo Center (SNIEC) on 18-20 June 2019. The event will be co-located with ICSE, InnoPack, bioLIVE, NEX, Labworld, FDF, and EP & Clean Tech. Seen as the bellwether of pharmaceutical trends across the country, CPhI & P-MEC China’s agenda is packed with content from over 100 onsite conferences and activities as well as more than 50 seminars, with speakers from China and abroad.

One of the key trends to emerge this year is the rise in the number of innovative China-based biotechs – coupled with the easing of regulatory pathways and an emerging CDMO sector – is fueling a significant growth in manufacturing across China. In view of this, experts at the event will assess the Marketing Authorization Holder (MAH) Pilot Program, as well as recent reforms of China’s regulatory landscape and the opportunities for international pharma.

With the Chinese pharma growing at a ferocious pace, CPhI & P-MEC China is expected to welcome 50,000 attendees in its 19th edition – a year-on-year increase of 30% – which is further indicative of the buoyancy of the Chinese market. The event is also expected to see a 6% increase in exhibitors, with more than 3,200 from over 120 countries in attendance.

“China is issuing new guidelines at a feverish pace and will be harmonized with ICH very quickly. The result is that over the next two to three years’ poorer quality manufacturers will drop out of the market and China’s manufacturers will look to compete in international markets as well as domestic” CPhI Annual Report Expert, Bikash Chatterjee on outlook of 2019.

Wider market data also supports this ongoing boom, with China’s pharmaceutical market projected to grow strongly from 115.2bn USD in 2016 to 159.4bn USD by 2021 and 234.2bn USD by 2026. This represents a 10-year compound annual growth rate of 8.8% in local currency terms and 7.3% in US dollar terms. Similarly, bioprocessing in China has been on a trajectory of rapid growth, with a 39% growth in facilities, and total capacity is growing >8% annually, with biosimilars offering the largest growth potential.

At the 2019 edition, for the first time, CPhI & P-MEC China 2019 will launch bioLIVE – their new bioprocessing and manufacturing exhibition – which has evolved from the previous BioPh China and will run adjacent. This exposition is in response to the large molecule trend within the industry, and arrives at a particularly prominent moment. Within the last year, there has been a proliferation of biosimilars and double-digit approvals of biologics – as well as a host of investments taking place in contract services.

Marie Lagrenee, Brand Manager at CPhI & P-MEC China, commented: “The growth of the Chinese pharma economy has been exponential in recent years, with regulatory reforms spearheading the increased interest in the region from both domestic and international companies. With a bourgeoning CDMO sector and recent harmonization by ICH, it’s pivotal that events such as CPhI & P-MEC China provide a platform to drive growth, exchange new ideas and expedite new deals to help nurture this budding market.”

The third edition of China Pharma Week will take place alongside CPhI & P-MEC China on June 17-21 2019, focusing on Leadership, Business, Networking, Innovation, Recognition and Knowledge. Activities will include plant visits, a networking dinner, women in leadership forum, summits and the Innovation Gallery Tours, giving a deeper work floor insight and dedicated industry conferences on different sectors.
