Huawei and Baidu will work together on developing and building an open AI

mobile ecosystem, including devices, technology, internet services, and



he strategic cooperation agreement covers AI platforms, technology, internet services, and content ecosystems, Huawei said.

The open ecosystem will be built using Huawei’s HiAI platform and neural network processing unit (NPU); and Baidu’s PaddlePaddle deep-learning framework and Baidu Brain, which contains Baidu’s AI services and assets. It will allow AI developers to make use of the technology.

Under the partnership, Baidu and Huawei will also work on improved voice and image recognition on smart devices, and will built a consumer augmented reality (AR) software and hardware ecosystem.

Content and internet services being explored by the two companies will “strengthen cooperation in areas such as search and feed to bring consumers a wealth of quality content with a more intuitive and convenient service experience”, Huawei added.

“The future is all about smart devices that will actively serve us, not just respond to what we tell them to do,” said Huawei Consumer Business Group CEO Richard Yu.
