Hauwei has announced the launch of two new artificial intelligence chips, aimed at data centres and smart devices.

The Ascend 910 is aimed at data centres. Hauwei says the new chip can process more data in a faster amount of time than its competitors and help train networks in a "matter of minutes."

The Ascend 310 is for internet-connected devices like smartphones, smartwatches and other gadgets tied to the Internet of Things.

“Huawei’s AI strategy is built on top of continued investment in basic technologies and talent training,” the company' chairman Eric Xu told the Huawei Connect conference in Shanghai.

“Going forward we need to think of new ways to prepare our business and industry for change. There are clear signs that AI will change or disrupt a whole host of industries,” Xu added.
