Huawei cloud releases Pangu 3.0: Shaping the Future beyond Chatbots: Huawei focuses on AI’s Impact on Industry Transformation.

Huawei is bringing forth new industry opportunities and technological advancements driven by the AI wave. During his keynote speech at Huawei’s Developer Conference,
Zhang Ping’an, Huawei Executive Director and CEO of HUAWEI CLOUD, unveiled the Pangu Model 3.0
and Ascend AI cloud services. These innovations aim to empower industry customers and partners and
unlock the potential of artificial intelligence for transformative growth across a range of sectors.
Pangu Models 3.0 is a system of pre-trained models that can be quickly adapted to meet scenario-
specific needs and address complex challenges across multiple industries. By leveraging large-scale data
sets and machine learning algorithms, Pangu 3.0 is set to revolutionize the industrial application of AI in
diverse areas such as weather forecasting, drug development, fault identification in trains, and the
mining industry.
Mr. Zhang said: “Huawei Cloud Pangu models will empower everyone from every industry with an
intelligent assistant, making them more productive and efficient. We will uphold our mission of “AI for
Industries”, and use Pangu models to reshape all industries with AI.”
Prestigious science journal Nature recently published a paper describing the enormous
potential that artificial intelligence holds for weather prediction. The paper described how
Huawei’s Pangu Weather AI Model team developed a precise and accurate global AI weather
forecast system based on deep learning using 43 years of data
Pangu Weather is the first AI prediction model to demonstrate higher precision than
traditional numerical weather forecast methods. The model allows a 10,000x improvement in
prediction speed, reducing global weather prediction time to just seconds. The model focuses
on key elements and common time ranges, allowing for more precise weather forecasts. Notably, it has
accurately predicted the trajectories and landing times of typhoons, including the recent Typhoon
Mawar in May this year, demonstrating its exceptional capabilities.
On July 18, Huawei and Shandong Energy Group will jointly launch the first commercial case of Pangu
Mining Model in Jinan, Shandong province. It is a ground-breaking solution that will enhance safety,
efficiency, and productivity. Traditional mining operations are inherently risky, requiring extensive
manpower and posing significant technical and safety challenges. However, with the implementation of
digital technologies, augmented by the Pangu Mining Model, the industry is witnessing a transformative
shift. By importing massive amounts of data for model pre-training, the Pangu Mining Model enables
unsupervised self-learning, covering over 300 core scenarios in coal mining operations. From digging and
drivage to machinery, transport, and communication, the model streamlines AI applications in
numerous coal mining scenarios.
Transportation system failures in coal mines are a significant issue, resulting in decreased coal output
and financial losses. Addressing this challenge, Huawei’s Pangu Mining Model incorporates an AI-based
intelligent monitoring system that accurately identifies exceptions in the transportation system, such as
large coal blocks and anchors, with an exceptional accuracy rate of up to 98%.
The railway industry also benefits immensely from Huawei’s AI advancements. Through the
implementation of the Pangu Railway Model, the safety and efficiency of freight trains are significantly
improved. Previous fault identification processes within Train Freight Detection Systems (TFDS) have

been labour-intensive, inefficient, and costly. On railways, the Pangu Railway Model can accurately
identify 67 types of freight cars and over 430 types of faults found on railways and freight cars. It can
quickly scan millions of images captured by the railway TFDS system and filter out 95% of the images
that are fault-free. This way, train inspectors can focus on the remaining images, and this helps them
improve both efficiency and accuracy.
These case studies exemplify the transformative power of AI in industrial applications. By harnessing the
capabilities of Huawei’s Pangu 3.0 and Ascend AI cloud services, businesses can unlock new levels of
safety, efficiency, and productivity, driving substantial growth and competitive advantage in their
respective industries. Huawei’s commitment to innovation and the development of advanced AI
solutions underscores its commitment to providing cutting edge solutions for customers.
