Huawei says it has made AI breakthroughs

STORY: Huawei says it has made breakthroughs in a number of fields, including artificial intelligence and operating systems.

The Chinese tech giant made the claim Friday.

It also said it had taken the company just 10 years to do what the U.S. and Europe took 30 years to achieve.

The chairman of Huawei's Consumer Business Group, Richard Yu, was speaking at a three-day event for developers in China.

He said the company's Harmony operating system was now available on more than 900 million devices, and had made major breakthroughs.

He added Huawei's AI infrastructure was now the second most popular after Nvidia.

Yu said operating systems and other software had been dominated by Europe and the U.S. for years.

But he believes Huawei has an opportunity to overtake them.

Data showed the firm's HarmonyOS phone operating system passed Apple's iOS in the first quarter of this year.

That saw it become the second best-selling mobile operating system in China behind Android, with a 17% market share.
