Huawei officially unveils its AI chip

Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro coming October 16 in Munich with Kirin 970 chip

Chinese telecom giant Huawei will launch Mate 10 smartphone powered by Kirin 970, a new chipset with built-in artificial-intelligence capabilities, unveiled at IFA, a consumer electronics show in Berlin on Saturday, the Wall Street Journal reported Saturday.

Huawei plans to employ its on-device AI to perform a multitude of tasks, such as, but not limited to, memory allocation, UI rendering, camera image processing, load balancing, and task scheduling. Based on a 10nm advanced processor, the company has described it as the "future of smartphones". This was found in the previous generation processor Kirin 960. The Kirin 970 is making its debut in Huawei's new Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro handsets, a pair of flagships set to launch on October 16 in Munich. Rather, his focus was on the processor that will power it, the Huawei-built Kirin 970. The company had been teasing the release of this device for months with posts on social media which hinted that Huawei is looking at AI as the next big thing.

The chipsets consist of 5.5 billion transistors on a single square centimetre area. "The ultimate goal is to provide a significantly better user experience", said Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei's consumer business group in a statement. Huawei says that its new heterogeneous computing architecture, when compared against the Cortex-A73 (quad-core) has up to 25x more performance, and a huge 50x more efficiency.

"The new Huawei chip can be 10 times as powerful as an average smartphone chip, and also more energy efficient, when it comes to handling AI-related functions such as image and voice recognition", Li said.

Cloud AI has seen broad application, but user experience still has room for improvement, including latency, stability, and privacy, according to the vendor. Huawei is committed to developing smart devices into intelligent devices by building end-to-end capabilities that support coordinated development of chips, devices, and the cloud.
