Huawei has dedicated $1 million to a partnership with UC Berkeley that is focused on artificial intelligence (AI). The partnership will primarily work on “basic research” and it was formed between Huawei’s Noah’s Ark Laboratory and Berkeley Artificial Intelligence Research (BAIR).
Together, the organizations will conduct research in areas like machine learning and natural language processing.
The two parties believe that this strategic partnership will fuel the advancement of AI technology and create completely new experiences for people, thus contributing greatly to society at large,
Berkeley’s BAIR lab is one of its more recent moves in the AI space. It is already working with 11 other large “industrial partners,” including Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon, and Intel.
