Huawei Hu Houkun: China's computing power network standards need to be unified

Hu Houkun, the rotating chairman of Huawei, attended the 2022 World Artificial Intelligence Conference held today and delivered a speech. He said that the next step in the development of the artificial intelligence industry lies in building and making good use of computing power facilities, and continuing to promote the computing power center to become a nationwide computing power network.

In the future, China's computing power network will provide a strong impetus for the development of the country's digital economy, just like the telecommunications and high-speed rail networks. However, at present, computing power networks cannot directly call each other, which also brings certain difficulties and challenges. We suggest that all parties work together to establish a unified standard and achieve mutual compatibility at multiple levels such as hardware, application interfaces, and data sharing, so that computing power, data, and ecology can be converged together.

Hu Houkun suggested that the AI ​​intelligent computing center can be piloted first, and the computing power network can be gradually moved towards integration and heterogeneity. Not only the intelligent computing center but also the supercomputing center and the integrated big data center can be integrated into the computing power network, thus forming a national computing power network. A large-scale computing power platform.

In addition, the technology of all-optical networks should be vigorously promoted to provide a network with larger bandwidth and lower delay. Hu Houkun predicted that in the future, the computing power network will become a new infrastructure for national economic development like power grids, communication networks, and high-speed rail, providing a strong impetus for the development of the digital economy.

The establishment of an industrial consortium will promote the integration of industry, academia, and research. He said that at present, Huawei's consortium for remote sensing and multi-modality industries has been established, and in the future, an industrial consortium for fluid mechanics will be established.

He believes that computing power has achieved rapid development as a new type of urban infrastructure, and it is necessary to continue to promote the construction of the computing power network so that the computing power center can be connected to the network from point to point. At the same time, plan the foundation and industry's large model sand table, lead the direction of innovation, and jointly accelerate the application of artificial intelligence. It is also necessary to promote the industrial consortium to accelerate the application of the AI industry.

In the past year, artificial intelligence has been applied more and more in all walks of life and in different scenarios, and the application depth has become deeper and deeper into the production process. Only by making artificial intelligence tangible and intangible and deeply embedded in all walks of life can it play its true value.
