Accelerate the intellectual transformation of the industry and create a "chip" future together, Horizon announces the developer's acceleration camp and support plan
Horizon AIoT Developer Salon Shanghai Station ended successfully
Currently, smart devices have entered a period of rapid popularization. Artificial intelligence, like hydropower and coal, has become the basic setting of the digital economy era. However, how companies have the ability to quickly implement AI is still a common challenge faced by industry participants.
On July 9, the 2021 Horizon Developer Salon · Shanghai Station hosted by Horizon and undertaken by SegmentFault was successfully held. A number of product and technical experts from companies such as Horizon and its partners Baidu, Lierda and nearly a hundred developers on-site talked about artificial intelligence, and shared the development practices of artificial intelligence software and hardware, AI's assistance in industrial upgrading and transformation, and the developers of Horizon Wonderful content such as cases. In addition, Horizon also announced a new developer acceleration camp and developer support plan at this salon.
Combination of software and hardware, the horizon makes AI development easy
Wang Cong, general manager of Horizon's AIoT product line, introduced Horizon's AI chip-based business practices and ecological exploration to the participating developers: In terms of commercial landing, thanks to the technical concept of the combination of software and hardware, Horizon's solutions can quickly form businesses. Closed loop; in terms of ecological construction, Horizon is continuing to provide customers with a comprehensive and open empowerment support based on a basic technology platform composed of chips, algorithms and development platforms, accelerating the application of AI in all walks of life, and working together to build a broader wisdom " "Core" ecology.
How to maximize the performance of AI chips and efficiently achieve the landing of AI products? Chen Ze, the person in charge of the development platform of Horizon Tiangong, introduced to developers the tool chain, AI application development middleware, model warehouse, customer self-built closed loop and other developer tools, and interpreted Horizon's iteration of the development platform from the developer's perspective. Upgrade planning. Chen Ze said that in order to cope with the different needs of specific scenarios for solutions, Horizon's algorithm developers will often discuss requirements with customers to predict the computing power, algorithms, bandwidth, etc. required for future applications.
Fei Bin, head of R&D of Horizon's AIoT product line, took the current AI difficulty as an entry point, and shared how Horizon can help customers explore and realize AI perception capabilities with the combination of software and hardware. Starting from the underlying technology concept of Horizon, Fei Bin explained in a simple way how Horizon integrates the characteristics of AI computing into the technical architecture, so that AI chips will always maintain a higher effective utilization rate with the evolution of algorithms, thereby benefiting partners and customers The advantages brought by algorithm innovation.
Ecological win-win, talk about the practice of AI product development
In the partner sharing session, Hu Tao, general manager of Lierda's embedded department, introduced to us Lierda's high-performance and cost-effective solutions for smart mines and smart factories based on the horizon chip and development platform. When talking about "why choose Horizon", Hu Tao said that Horizon gives customers not only computing power, and software application ecology based on chips, but also gives customers the know-how of AI algorithms, which brings customers real The ability to improve. Horizon chip products' algorithm-friendliness, open and easy-to-use development platform, and efficient customer service attitude also constitute the key basis for the continued cooperation between the two parties. In addition, Hu Tao also recognized the quality of Horizon's products.
Ying Sheng, a senior engineer from Baidu Flying Pad, shared the high-level API of Paddle2ONNX and "Tiangong Kaiwu". This product can quickly and effectively build deep learning models with multiple times the efficiency. Among them, the Tiangong Kaiwu development board of the horizon can quickly carry out embedded development and deployment, and the speed and accuracy can be effectively guaranteed. The in-depth cooperation between the two parties has further expanded the algorithm ecology of the Horizon chip, while also enabling Baidu Feidao users to carry out diversified AI deployments.
To create a "chip" future, the Horizon Developer Acceleration Camp and Support Plan is here
At the end of the salon, Gao Yinjia, head of Horizon AIoT developer ecology, introduced the preparatory progress of the Horizon Developer Acceleration Camp and the "Tiangong" developer support plan.
Horizon Developer Acceleration Camp is committed to providing innovative acceleration services for AI developers. By providing multi-faceted ecological empowerment including hardware, development platforms, training courses, marketing resources, etc., it helps developers create fast-landing applications and accelerate popularization. The coming of the AI era. The 2021 Horizon Developer Acceleration Camp has the theme of "Evolve and More "AI"", encourage developers to practice the concept of technology for good, and accelerate the implementation of AI in various scenarios based on the Horizon AI development kit, making people's lives safer ,Better.
The topic of this acceleration camp is "Develop a product based on Horizon AI product technology to help the development of public welfare undertakings and make life better". Developers can create a product from the perspective of public welfare based on their hobbies and technical expertise. In the acceleration camp, Horizon will accelerate the implementation of developers' AI products through comprehensive technical empowerment and in-depth guidance to developers. Currently, acceleration camp registration has been opened .
In addition, in order to encourage and support a wider range of developers to carry out product development practices, use AI to empower industry upgrades, and jointly build a smart "core" ecology, Horizon has launched an AIoT developer support program-"Tiangong Project" to help developers Accelerate the landing of AI products and achieve a win-win business. Gao Yinjia said that the "Tiangong Project" will be officially launched on the official website of the Horizon Developer Community and Sifu in the near future.
So far, the first Horizon Developer Salon in 2021 has come to an end. In the future, the Horizon Developer Salon will continue to spread across the country, bringing developers in more cities full of technology sharing, and at the same time helping companies from all walks of life continue to innovate in the wave of intelligent change and transformation, and jointly create a prosperity. AI "core" ecology.
The realization of inclusive AI not only relies on the active participation of industry chain companies, but also requires many developers to jointly shape a rich and diversified application ecosystem. Under the brand strategy of AI on Horizon, Journey Together, Horizon will continue to polish the basic technology platform consisting of "chip + algorithm + tool chain", and provide partners with the underlying technical capabilities and more efficient development services, so as to enable the development of the digital economy era. "Water, electricity, coal" is fully surging, so that everyone can enjoy a safer and better life.
