EI on HUAWEI CLOUD Builds a Fully Connected, Intelligent World
Dec 06, 2017 GMT+08:00
Recently, Huawei's Enterprise Intelligence (EI) service has become available on the official website of HUAWEI CLOUD. EI provides three types of intelligent cloud services, including essential platform services, general-purpose services (such as Big Data, visual cognition, and voice & NLP services), and industry scenario solutions, for a total of 30 robust services.
The following services and solutions have been added to EI since made its debut at HUAWEI CONNECT 2017.
Diverse essential platform services: Deep Learning Service (DLS), Deep Learning HMI, and Graph Engine Service (GES) provide powerful machine learning, deep learning, and relationship analysis capabilities.
Additional general-purpose services: In the visual cognition field, Facial Recognition Service (FRS), Image Recognition Service (IRS), and Content Moderation provide a variety of application scenarios based around computer vision. Automatic Speech Recognition Service (ASR), Text-to-Speech Service (TTS), Natural Language Processing (NLP), and Intelligent Question Answering (IQA) are added to the voice & NLP field, enabling natural language input and human-machine interactions.
Six more industry scenario solutions: iWater, iManufacturing, iPower, iTransport, iFinance, and iRetail
In "Absorbing the Energy of the Universe over a Cup of Coffee, and Taking a Bucket of Glue to Stick the World's Best Brains Together", Mr. Ren Zhengfei, Huawei's founder, recently stated, "Huawei is now investing heavily in AI. We are working hard in two areas. The first is automating a lot of repetitive work in our management. This is reducing management costs and eliminating repetitive work that easily leads to errors due to weariness and fatigue. Our ability to survive in this world will thus improve. The second is identifying and intelligently handling uncertainties."
EI strives to provide innovative, intelligent cloud services for enterprises. For example, Optical Character Recognition Service (OCR) automatically extracts characters from more than 100 types of customs forms and automatically communicates with information input systems, eliminating repetitive work while greatly improving information recognition precision. Machine Learning (MLS) and Deep Learning (DLS) are used to identify and handle uncertainties. DLS uses massive amounts of historical data to build dynamic prediction models that can be used for service R&D, design, manufacturing, O&M, operations, and marketing. One of the most common applications of DLS is fault prediction for communications hardware and equipment.
As a world-leading high-tech manufacturing enterprise, Huawei has led the way in using EI in its own production practices. For example, Huawei's internal supply chain system uses EI to improve efficiency and save costs across the board during procurement, warehousing, logistics, and customs declaration. In terms of warehousing management, EI technology can improve sorting and packing efficiency by 20%. Logistics personnel use EI for path planning, which reduces costs by 30%. Huawei terminals use EI-based intelligent decision engines to implement real-time transaction fraud detection for e-commerce enterprises and provide intelligent recommendation support for 15 service scenarios, such as news, apps, and games. In the traditional communications field, EI applies to a variety of scenarios, such as wireless network design, network planning and optimization, engineering survey and acceptance, and user experience management.
In the intelligent transportation field, Shenzhen Traffic Police were the first to use HUAWEI CLOUD's EI and worked with Huawei to jointly launch the Shenzhen Traffic Brain Project in September 2017. Thanks to these new advances, Shenzhen beat out more than 300 peer cities to win the Safe City Award at the Smart City Export World Congress 2017.
EI is at the very core of Huawei's "mobile AI" (cloud AI + device AI) strategy. It seamlessly integrates AI technologies with enterprises' production systems, making enterprises more intelligent. With its "mobile AI' and "fully-connected" strategies, Huawei aims to bring every person, home, and organization into the digital era to create a fully connected, intelligent world.
