Huawei Wants To Tackle NVIDIA And Google With A Solid AI Strategy


It supports mainstream deep learning frameworks such as TensorFlow, PyTorch and PaddlePaddle. Tensor Engine and its operators are Huawei's equivalent of NVIDIA cuDNN, a library that makes CUDA accessible to AI developers. MindSpore is Huawei's own unified training/inference framework architected to be design-friendly, operations-friendly that's adaptable to multiple scenarios. It includes core subsystems, such as a model library, graph compute, and tuning toolkit; a unified, distributed architecture for machine learning, deep learning, and reinforcement learning; a flexible program interface along with support for multiple languages. MindSpore is highly optimized for Ascend chips. It takes advantage of the hardware innovations that went into the design of the AI chips.
