Huawei and UC Berkeley create strategic partnership for US$1m basic artificial intelligence research

The Noah’s Ark Laboratory of Huawei and the University of California, Berkeley, have formed a strategic partnership in basic research into artificial intelligence (AI).

Huawei will provide a US$1 million fund to UC Berkeley for research into subjects of interest in AI, including deep learning, reinforcement learning, machine learning, natural language processing and computer vision.

The Research and Development (R&D) teams of Huawei and the Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research (BAIR) Lab will collaborate to achieve breakthroughs in AI theories and key technologies. The two parties believe that this strategic partnership will fuel the advancement of AI technology and create new experiences for users.

As one of the world’s leading higher education institutes, UC Berkeley has proven expertise in machine learning and other AI domains. Its newly-founded BAIR Lab brings together UC Berkeley researchers across the areas of computer vision, machine learning, natural language processing, robotics, and research planning.image006

BAIR includes more than two dozen faculty and one hundred graduate students pursuing research on fundamental advances in these areas, as well as in cross-cutting themes including multi-modal deep learning, human-compatible AI, and connecting AI with other scientific disciplines and the humanities.

The Noah’s Ark Laboratory is Huawei’s research unit dedicated to AI, machine learning, and data mining. Founded four years ago, the laboratory has developed technologies for deep learning, telecom big data analytics, telecom network control, flow data mining, and image data mining. These technologies have been widely used in Huawei’s smartphones, telecom networks, and cloud computing products and services that reportedly create significant value for the company’s customers.
