Huawei Chips Unlock New Era of Artificial Intelligence

Huawei Chips Unlock New Era of Artificial Intelligence

New Ascend 310 AI Chip Earns Huawei the Prestigious “World Leading Scientific and Technological Achievement Award” at the Fifth World Internet Conference

Today at the Fifth World Internet Conference (WIC), held today in Wuzhen, Zhejiang, under the theme of “Creating a Digital World for Mutual Trust and Collective Governance – Towards a Community with a Shared Future in Cyberspace,” Huawei’s Ascend 310 chip stood out among more than 400 technology achievements to win the conference’s World Leading Scientific and Technological Achievement award. This honor recognizes artificial intelligence (AI) system-on-chips (SoC) as having the industry’s strongest compute capabilities for edge computing scenarios, with support from the unified and scalable Da Vinci architecture. This marks the third consecutive year Huawei has received this award and the opportunity to showcase its innovation during the conference. Yan Lida, Director of the Board at Huawei and President of Huawei Enterprise Business Group, presented the achievement to the guests at the conference.

Yan Lida said: “Huawei’s new Ascend series of AI chips is the core component of Huawei’s AI solution and provides the key support. Huawei’s AI strategy is to invest in basic research and talent development; build a full-stack, all-scenario AI portfolio; and foster an open global ecosystem. Every year, Huawei invests 10 to 15 percent of our sales revenue in R&D, and this year our R&D investment will exceed CNY100 billion. Ascend 310 is the first chip in the Ascend series, which opens a new era of AI. Our advantage is not only to be able to do AI, but also to achieve synergy between AI and cloud, IoT, video, edge computing, big data and other technologies, to form an open “platform” that supports digital transformation for all industries. AI will be the latest technology Huawei makes available to customers and partners on the platform. We will work hard to make sure AI is no longer a technology only open to ones who have high qualification skills. Over the next three years, our aim is to work with one million AI developers to drive innovations in line with Huawei’s commitment to provide affordable, effective, and reliable AI, bringing intelligence across every enterprise and industry to build a fully connected, intelligent world.”

On October 10, 2018, Huawei officially released a full-stack all-scenario AI solution. ‘Full-stack’ means the solution provides powerful and cost-effective computing power, as well as low-barrier application development platforms that make AI data modeling, model training, and application development simpler, more agile, and more efficient. As an ‘all-scenario’ solution, it is able to drive pervasive intelligence across various device, edge, and cloud scenarios.

Ascend 310 is the industry’s most powerful AI SoC chip for edge computing scenarios. Currently, the most typical edge computing scenarios are security and protection, autonomous driving, and smart manufacturing. However, every edge computing scenario imposes severe constraints on space, energy consumption and computing power. Whether it’s on a fast-moving car or on a high-speed production line, a complex scientific study or a daily educational activity, Ascend 310 supports every industry with an cost-efficient and powerful computing energy. One Ascend 310 chip can achieve up to 16TOPS on-site calculations, supporting the simultaneous identification of 200 different objects including people, cars, obstacles and traffic signs; it can process thousands of pictures in one second. In October this year, Huawei and Audi demonstrated the chipset in L4 automatic driving. The vehicle was equipped with Huawei’s Mobile Data Center (MDC) vehicle-mounted computing unit and it was estimated that Huawei’s Ascend 310 chipset consumed only 200 watts of power in L4 automatic driving.

The other unique advantage of Ascend series is that it adopts Huawei’s innovative unified and extensible Da Vinci architecture, which achieves full coverage – from the ultimate low energy consumption scenario to high computing power scenario – something not yet seen in any other architecture on the market. The Da Vinci architecture is able to facilitate AI application deployment, migration, and collaboration in different scenarios at the same time, which vastly improves software development efficiency, and accelerates AI application in various industries.

Huawei advocates ‘AI for the benefit of all,’ and aims to work with customers, industry partners, and academic institutions to achieve win-win outcomes and enable omnipresent AI. Our vision and mission is to bring digital to every person, home and organization for a fully connected, intelligent world. More information about Huawei’s AI strategies and full-stack all-scenario AI solutions is available at https://www.huawei.com/en/press-events/news/2018/10/huawei-hc-2018-eric-xu-ai.

The WIC is a global annual event held by Cyberspace Administration of China and Zhejiang Provincial People’s government. It aims to create an international forum for connecting China and the rest of the world and a Chinese forum for the global sharing and governance of the Internet. The conference fosters exchanges to enable consensus, cooperation, and win-win outcomes. The fifth WIC is being held in Wuzhen, Zhejiang province on November 7, 2018, and will run for three days.

Augmenteum Delivers Thorassist, An Augmented Reality Experience For Pulmonary Anatomy Education And Training, At CHEST 2018

Augmenteum Delivers Thorassist, An Augmented Reality Experience For Pulmonary Anatomy Education And Training, At CHEST 2018

Augmenteum Inc., an augmented reality (AR) innovator, announced that Thorassist, a multi-user AR education and training experience delivered by Augmenteum, will be presented at the American College of Chest Physicians (CHEST) Annual Meeting 2018 in San Antonio TX, on Tuesday, October 9.  Carla R. Lamb, M.D. of the Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, Burlington MA, will use Thorassist to demonstrate bronchoscopic anatomy and procedures for management of trachael diseases.  Approximately 90 users will participate in the session.  Videos highlights of the Thorassist demonstration will be available at www.augmenteum.com after the presentation.

Thorassist has been developed by Augmenteum under the direction of Dr. Lamb as a group and individual learning tool for bronchoscopic anatomy and procedures.  Thorassist enables users to visualize the anatomy of the lungs using AR to display a 3D digital image created by VIDA Diagnostics Inc. from life-like thoracic anatomy reconstructed imagery.  It also enables users to visualize bronchoscopic procedures by displaying interior views that a physician would see during a procedure.

“Thorassist is an exciting new tool to help educate doctors in the complex field of interventional pulmonology,” said Carla Lamb, M.D., its creator.  “Knowledge of the anatomy and the experience of procedures is challenging for new specialists to understand and retain.  Thorassist provides an environment in which I can help students understand the anatomy and learn procedures using detailed models, at much lower cost than other technologies such as virtual reality.”

Overview of Thorassist

Thorassist is a shared, multi-user application with instructor-led and independent operating modes.  Participants use iPads to see and interact with digital 3D models of the lungs and airway tree.  In the instructor-led mode, the instructor controls the digital model and manipulates it for all users, like using physical models in a classroom environment.  For example, the instructor can rotate the lungs to highlight important anatomical features and all users will see the same view on their iPads.  In the independent mode, each user controls and manipulates the digital model independently.  Thorassist is built on Augmenteum’s Classroom template and distributed from Augmenteum’s Cloud services platform.

“Classroom begins to realize our vision of delivering AR experiences for everyone, everywhere,” said David Palacios, Augmenteum’s founder and CTO.  “It shows the tremendous potential of an AR experience shared by many simultaneous users.  We will create additional shared multi-user experiences that bring AR to many different applications, from the workplace to home.”

“Thorassist is an outstanding implementation of our Classroom experience,” said Andrew O’Brien, Augmenteum’s CEO. “It utilizes AR to visualize 3D models to improve end users’ understanding of very complex content and procedures.   It leverages Augmenteum’s ability to deliver shared AR experiences for many simultaneous users, as well as provide a “take-home” experience for individuals to use on their own.”

Overview of Classroom

Classroom is a new type of shared, multi-user AR experience.  It can be utilized in many applications that require demonstration of digital 3D content such as design reviews in architecture, engineering, product design and manufacturing; and presentations in sales, marketing, training and conferences.  It supports both local and remote users, enabling distributed sessions.  The Augmenteum Cloud content management system supports the popular 3D model file formats supported by content creation tools.  The mobile app can be a standalone app, or integrated into an existing app.  To discuss how your content can be integrated into a Classroom experience, contact Augmenteum via our web site www.augmenteum.com.

Demonstration details

Thorassist will be demonstrated on Tuesday, October 9, 2018, at 5pm in session 10914:  Integrating Augmented Reality in Airway and Thoracic Anatomy Recognition with Role in Identifying Pulmonary Nodules.  The session is chaired by Dr. Lamb and subsessions will be led by Samira Shojaee, M.D. and A. Christine Argento, M.D.

About Augmenteum:

Augmenteum helps the world visualize digital 3D content by delivering persistent, shared, multi-user augmented reality (AR) experiences to everyone, everywhere.  It delivers AR experiences from its cloud-based mapping and content distribution platform to end user’s mobile devices, where they are displayed.  Augmenteum, a private company, was founded in 2016.

Resecurity Named Leader in Forensics in Cyber Defense 2018 Global Awards

The Cyber Defense 2018 Global Award for “Hot Company Forensics” has been won by international cybersecurity company Resecurity in recognition of one of its core products – Context™, combining a platform for digital forensics, intelligence analysis and cybercrime investigations.

Cyber Defense Magazine scoured the world to reach out to almost 3,000 InfoSec players from the USA to Israel to Japanand to Germany, before narrowing the list down to a small group of finalists, announcing the winners at the major IP Expo Europe conference in London on October 3.

“Cyber Defense Magazine spent six months searching the globe to find the most innovative and cutting-edge cyber security companies for our Cyber Defense 2018 Global Awards,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher, Cyber Defense Magazine. “Resecurity, Inc. won this award for ‘Hot Company Forensics’ because it is an innovator on a mission to help stop breaches and get one step ahead of the next threat, proactively.”

The “Hot Company Forensics” award went to Resecurity for its development of innovative technologies for digital forensics and cybercrime investigation. Leveraging its strong partnerships with law enforcement agencies internationally, Resecurity has developed a next-generation digital forensics platform – Context™ – now being utilized by leading Fortune 500 corporations and governments.

In order to enable commercial organizations to take full advantage of next-generation forensics tools, Resecurity developed Context™ in close consultation with law enforcement agencies and security professionals. Context™ is delivered on a platform-as-a-service model (PaaS) model in order to simplify forensics procedures in the enterprise environment, providing companies with comprehensive forensics reports and valuable analytical information. The Context™ platform supports numerous file formats and platforms, including desktop, mobile platforms and cloud-based environments. It can be used for file, network and malware forensics, along with actor-focused investigations.

Combining forensics analysis with data enrichment technologies in this way enables Resecurity to provide the end forensics results with additional meaningful intelligence from repositories ranging from IP reputation, indicators of compromise (IOCs) and breached data to historical Dark Web records. Resecurity’s Context™ now has a growing meta database of over 600 million Dark Web records, 8 billion Compromised Credentials, 12 million threat actors and over 30 million IOCs extracted from various Dark Web sources and analyzed security incidents (targeted cyberattacks, cyberespionage campaigns, malicious activity).

According to Resecurity chief executive, Charles Yoo: “Resecurity is an intelligence-driven company with a great team of experts, who understand the vital role of data in digital forensics and computer crimes investigations in practice. Our mission was to build a scalable next-generation digital forensics platform which will help law enforcement, fraud and risk managers, investigators, DFIR experts and intelligence analysts to accelerate the pre- and post-analysis lifecycle – making their work more effective and scalable and, crucially, more cost and time-efficient. We are proud to win the ‘Hot Company Forensics’ category in the Cyber Defense 2018 Global Awards and will keep doing a great job for the worldwide security and intelligence community.”
