Ascend AI Cloud Service builds a solid computing backbone. This versatile infrastructure, with exceptional performance and diverse resources, will empower partners and developers in model migration and training. To be specific, mainstream AI engines (such as MindSpore, Huawei's deep learning training and inference framework) are embedded, so developers can migrate their state-of-the-art (SOTA) models or other models to Ascend, and train models with trillions of parameters.
Huawei Cloud aims to build an open global ecosystem with a focus on developers, and Huawei Cloud Model Community is proof. This is where developers get access to quality datasets, enhanced SOTA models, AI capabilities, developer kits, courses, and technical support. Huawei Cloud also takes developers on an upskilling journey. Courses on foundation models and cloud native are supplemented with hands-on experience for the chance to get certified and recognized.
Creating a thriving ecosystem also requires joint effort from customers and partners. Huawei Cloud has developed 20+ industry models and 400+ AI applications on Pangu L0 foundation models, together with 150+ partners and 200+ customers. These achievements are unlocking more possibilities in all industries.
