Huawei Technologies Co on Friday unveiled the latest version of its artificial intelligence large language model Pangu 3.0, as part of its broader push to leverage AI to accelerate digital transformation in a wide range of sectors.
Zhang Pingan, CEO of Huawei Cloud, said the Pangu Model 3.0 consists of three layers of architecture: L0 foundational large language model, L1 industry-specific model and L2 scenario-specific model, which will reshape thousands of industries.
Huawei said its Pangu large language model has already been used in more than 10 industries such as finance, manufacturing, government affairs, power, coal mining, healthcare and railways, supporting the implementation of AI applications in over 400 business scenarios.
The company also said a paper about its breakthrough Pangu Weather AI model has been published by Nature, one of the world's top scientific journals.
The publication marks the first time that employees of a Chinese technology company are the sole authors of a Naturepaper, according to Nature Index. The paper, describing how to develop a precise and accurate global AI weather forecast system based on deep learning using 43 years of data, appeared in the prestigious journal on July 5, 2023.
Pangu-Weather is the first AI prediction model to demonstrate a higher precision than traditional numerical weather forecast methods. The model allows 10,000 times more improvement in prediction speed, reducing global weather prediction time to just seconds. The paper, titled Accurate medium-range global weather forecasting with 3D neural networks provides independent verifications of these capabilities, Huawei said.
