[Rome, Italy, November 08, 2018] At the third Huawei Eco-connect Europe conference, Huawei launched HiAI 2.0, an open platform designed to facilitate the development of On-Device artificial intelligence (AI). The latest iteration of the platform provides developers with an open ecosystem that lets them tap into the capabilities of Huawei’s chipsets, devices and cloud via HiAI Foundation, HiAI Engine and HiAI Service.

Lu Wenyu, Chief AI Expert of Product Management Department, Huawei Consumer Business Group, said, “In April 2018, Huawei announced HiAI 1.0, a mobile AI computing platform. By providing developers with operators and APIs, the inaugural platform helped cut down the time and complexity of app development. HiAI 2.0 will bring with it even greater computing power, richer APIs and better support across a wider range of devices. It’ll significantly lower the barrier to entry of AI development, allowing even more developers join in and create exciting new apps for consumers.”

To date, there are more than 1,000 partners and 450,000 developers actively working within the Huawei HiAI ecosystem and empowering more than 300 million users with AI capabilities. Under the HiAI program, Huawei operates 13 R&D centers and 2 Open Labs around the world to collaborate with local developers on app development. These Labs also perform the role of a springboard for successful developers to launch their projects globally. Huawei remains committed to working with partners to build the AI ecosystem and perfect the AI app experience.
