The 4th Industrial Revolution Is Propelling Society into an Intelligent World
Mr. Tao pointed out that the new emerging technologies of the 4th Industrial Revolution represent huge opportunities for digitalization. 5G, AI, cloud, and the Industrial Internet are combining to drive industry transformation for a fully connected, intelligent world. Global industry partners and stakeholders must form open and collaborative partnerships to capitalize on the opportunities of intelligent transformation.
Huawei's Best Practices to Power Industries with Intelligence
Huawei works as a technology innovator with ecosystem partners for intelligent products and solutions by harnessing technologies such as 5G, AI, and cloud to support enterprises in their intelligent journey.
Huawei is always the first to try the products it builds. Huawei has massive complex, repetitive internal business scenarios. The company combines these scenarios with computing power, algorithms, and data to boost operational efficiency, experience, and innovation. This commitment to development makes Huawei a leader in product innovation and intelligent transformation.
Digital Sovereignty, Data Openness, and Intelligence Build an Ecosystem with Universal Benefits
Tao Jingwen’s speech emphasized the importance Huawei places in digital sovereignty. Individuals, enterprises, and countries require personal privacy, enterprise confidentiality, and national security. Huawei actively supports countries in their efforts to protect digital sovereignty with a strategy of "building walls" and "opening doors". This strategy prioritizes secure data circulation and effective data openness to systematically build an intelligent world.
However, Huawei knows that it cannot build an intelligent world by itself. It will require the engagement of governments, enterprises, and users worldwide. Huawei is dedicated to making this vision of collaboration a reality.

Xu Yingtong said, "Huawei's Atlas AI computing solution provides services for all AI scenarios across devices, the edge, and the cloud. The Atlas 900 AI cluster provides data centers with powerful computing to supercharge computing-intensive research in astronomical exploration, weather forecasting, oil exploration, and gene research. AI accelerates research and increases result accuracy to ultimately benefit everyone. On the edge side, we are working with partners on a variety of AI solutions, such as AI-enabled inspection for transmission lines, smart customer service centers, medical image diagnosis, and manufacturing quality inspection. Our goal is to make pervasive intelligence a reality with quick and simple AI."
