Elsevier released the English version of the book Ascend AI Processor Architecture and Programming: Principles and Applications of CANN.
The book gives an in-depth description of artificial intelligence applications by using our Ascend chip and analyses the unique performance attributes of this processor. It also introduces theoretical aspects of artificial intelligence, describes the hardware and software architecture; and all related tools to program the technology. The book concludes with detailed case studies on data and algorithms for artificial intelligence. Enjoy!

The new TOP500 list of the fastest supercomputer was announced. I expected many things, but also have to admin that some things came as a surprise. Congratulation to Fujitsu, the entire Riken team and Japan to push an Arm-based system to the pole position of the new TOP500 list.
My key takeaways are:
The updated version of this presentation provides additional information on the applicability of artificial intelligence in modern medicine, shows more insights into the end-to-end life cycle of AI implementations in projects and gives more details of our software stack.
Last month we announced the IdeaHub series, which refines video conferencing by using our Ascend and Kunpeng processors. The goal is to created digital workspaces with a full set of collaboration endpoints. These endpoints act as interactive whiteboards, providing professional video conferencing and are connected to a prosperous cloud ecosystem. The interactive whiteboards provide 12 linear microphone arrays and support video recording with 60 fps.
In this presentation, I give an introduction into microprocessor trends, describe two distinct eras of computing usage in training AI systems and show the wide variety of computing architectures in computer science. I also describe our advanced computing and artificial intelligence product portfolio, which focuses on innovation, continuous dedication and backward compatibility. The central part of this talk is insights into our Da Vinci architecture, descriptions of all building block, the core architecture and its micro-architectural configurations. Last, I show the process of how we execute artificial intelligence projects and the challenges which are still ahead of us.
Today we announced terrific new products. Our new flagship smartphone delivers an outstanding photography experience by using the worlds first multi-reflection super periscope telephoto, 10x long-range optical zoom, 100x max and an ultra vision Leica Penta camera system. We also incorporate "Hey Celia", a new virtual private assistant that supports you in your daily life.
The HUAWEI Sound X speaker, with its refined and elegant design, delivers a visible stunning shaking bass and 360 degrees surround sound with six of full-range speakers.
The HUAWEI Watch GT2 products appear in new designs and editions.
Finally, our HUAWEI Eyewear combines leading technology with fashion.

Artificial intelligence will shape our future like no other technology. Since the role of this technology is expanding, it will optimise and improve what people do. In the medical field, artificial intelligence will help support diagnostic processes and other related processes. To bring artificial intelligence to clinical relevance, the technology industry, the medical industry and physicians are required to solve complex challenges in an interdisciplinary approach.
This week I had the honour and pleasure to give a talk at the "Emerging Technologies in Medicine" conference, which brings experienced physicians, engineers and computer scientists together to talk about topics related to the future and exchange opinions for the challenges ahead. In my talk, I presented how Huawei supports the health care industry with artificial intelligence and described the process of how we execute AI projects. I described the challenges of microprocessor trends and introduced computer architectural approaches to solve these challenges, and showed Huawei's rich AI product portfolio. I also showed where AI, specifically with our products, has been successfully used in medical research such as in retinal blood vessel segmentation in the eyeground and the prediction of protein subcellular localisation.
There are still challenges ahead, but with collaborative approaches such as this, I think we will be better equipped in facing our future.
We opened the doors yesterday to a range of new connective possibilities and unveiled some exciting new products. We announced the world's slimmest 5G foldable smartphone, a business tabled with the highest screen-to-body ration, new amazing laptops and a variety of powerful communication devices.
Last, we announced our app store, which is supported by HUAWEI Mobile Services.
