Huawei Technologies has unveiled two new artificial intelligence-powered microchips as the Chinese technology giant looks to break into a market currently dominated by US firms Nvidia and Intel, the Wall Street Journal reports.
The company’s new Ascend range of semiconductors include a chip for servers that is designed to program algorithms and process other complex AI tasks, while a second more routine product is intended to be installed in smartphones and other digital devices.
Several Chinese companies are pouring resources into developing AI chips, as China looks to break its dependence on US core technologies. Alibaba plans to unveil a new AI chip next year, and startups Bitmain and Cambricon are also working on similar components.
