Huawei has launched its first overseas Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT) Innovation Bootcamp in Singapore, where aspiring students from National University of Singapore (NUS), Temasek Polytechnic (TP) and Singapore Polytechnic (SP) come together to learn, experiment and explore AIoT technologies and applications.
Six Singapore teams comprising of 18 students will learn about AI & IoT knowledge in Huawei’s 5G-powered Artificial Intelligence (AI) lab in Changi Business Park, which is well-equipped with AI, 5G and Cloud technology. The AI lab offers 5G testbed, extensive AI support and enablement ranging from ModelArts.
Huawei’s one-stop AI development Platform to some of the most innovative IoT developer boards and kits. Students will be able to gain hands-on experience by participating in trainings and workshop opportunities, before proceeding to implement their own practical applications at the bootcamp.
Using ModelArts, students can work with a variety of supporting tools including ExeML, Model Deployment, and Rapid and Simplified Model Training among others, while learning from Huawei’s extensive courses on topics of AI, Internet of Things (IoT), 5G and more.
Prof. Tan Wee Kek from NUS School of Computing Science said, “Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet-of-Things (IoT) are two of the most important modern technologies. The concept of Artificial Intelligence of Things synergises AI and IoT to create smart solutions for the future.”
“Compared to our previous bootcamps in China, Singapore students are more proactive and more collaborative in the classroom and have a strong sense of teamwork,” commented Wei Biao, Huawei IoT Certified Architect.
Upon fulfilment of the bootcamp, the six teams will each complete a project in two months. The top two winning teams will represent the entire Southeast Asian region to compete among 20 teams from global in Huawei’s ICT Competition 2019-2020 Global Final that will be held in Shenzhen in mid May 2020.
Recently, Huawei Technologies have become Licensors and Licensees of the HEVC Advance HEVC/H.265 Patent Pool. As a Licensor, all of Huawei’s HEVC/H.265 essential patents will now be available through the HEVC Advance Patent Pool. As a Licensee, Huawei gains access to the over 10,000 (and counting) world-wide patents essential to implementing the HEVC/H.265 video codec standard.
