The Fourth Industrial Revolution will create a new world with which the boundaries between material and digital will disappear. Soon, billions of connected devices around us will produce data that can be used to increase productivity and improve our quality of life.
That’s why communications experts, businesspeople, and governments around the world are continuing to deploy the new generation network. Its high-speed connectivity will allow artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things to flourish. The Internet of Things is everything equipped to connect to the Internet.
Europe and keeping up with technological innovations
For Europe, it is absolutely essential to keep up with modern innovations. During the European Innovation Day at the Eco Connect conference in Paris, organized by Huawei of China, European leaders from all industrial, technological, energy and health sectors met to speed up digitization.
Huawei’s cooperation with Europe began more than 20 years ago, as Huawei’s EU member, Abraham Liu, said, “We helped secure our solutions for operators with the aim of building a European information highway for future generations and for survival at the forefront of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. For 2018 alone, Huawei contributed more than €12.8 billion in European GDP. We have also supported 169,000 jobs in Europe.”
For Markus Grobouche, an official at German telecommunications company Telecommunications continued innovation is important.
Grobouche said Huawei’s technology is currently a leader, “it may be 18 to 24 months ahead of other companies… Personally, I wonder, do the recommendations have a political role? Because Huawei has previously secured 34th and 4th generation equipment.”
Cybersecurity is a technological issue.
However, the EU and some of its member states, such as Germany, argue that using the 5G network with institutions supported by governments outside the EU will cause security problems. They believe that Europe could be subjected to cyber-attacks. The 5G network relies heavily on foreign suppliers. Europe recently published recommendations to make the 5G safer.
For Mepsian Kotajar, the laws enacted by Europe are not restrictions but “opportunities for better standards.” This does not mean that we cannot cooperate with foreign partners, otherwise, it will mean that we will be isolated.”
“Cooperation with Europe is very important for Huawei,” said Karl Song, Huawei’s vice president of public communications. We consider cybersecurity to be a technological issue. We can resolve this issue in a reasonable way based on the facts.”
Atlas 900 Integrated Artificial Intelligence Program
Huawei is its key to helping Europe seize new opportunities such as artificial intelligence. Jiang Tao, vice president of smart programming at Huawei, revealed that his company has invested 100 million euros to build an ecosystem program for artificial intelligence. The program’s name, “Huawei Atlas 900″, was announced as the most powerful artificial intelligence group in the world. If you search in space for 200,000 stars, today scientists need about 74 hours to do one search. But the Atlas 900 won’t need more than ten seconds.”
Artificial intelligence is not only robots, programming, and smart factories, it is also a real application in people’s daily lives, as is the free StorySign app that “instantly converts text into sign language”, according to Huawei’s Eastern European PUBLIC Relations Officer, Alex Lee.
Huawei’s strategy also includes digital transformation, with a new project called “Tech4All” to improve people’s lives with technology.
Europe considers the fifth generation to be a winner in the international market, with an economic return of €225 billion by 2025.
