Mobile World Congress (MWC) Barcelona 2020 has been cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak, but Huawei held its global Industrial Digital Transformation Conference. It was held via live streaming connecting guests from across the world including the UK, Switzerland, USA, Germany and Italy with the theme “Hi, Intelligent World”.

The conference previewed five trends of an intelligent world 10 years from now and proposed a foundation built on new types of connectivity, computing, platform, and ecosystem. This will enable the intelligent development of a wide variety of industries, including urban development, manufacturing, energy, finance, transportation, and so on. The ASEAN Economic Community, Shenzhen Airport Group, and other customers also shared their insights and experiences in digital transformation.

In the future, information flows with new ICT, such as 5G, AI, and IoT, will help build the foundation from which everything originates. Simply put, the world of 2030 will be intelligent. Standing at the start of a new decade, Huawei believes the intelligent world 2030 will have five features:

  1. Governmental level – people-oriented digital governments will be built to adapt to people’s livelihoods better.
  2. Economic level – intelligent robots will make up a critical part of a future labour force.
  3. Social level – digital technology will help equalise the sharing and proper distribution of education, healthcare, and other public resources, achieving digital equality.
  4. Cultural level – citizens will be freed from heavy physical labour and tedious repetitive work, and their focus will naturally shift from material value to mental value.
  5. Environmental Level – the deployment of various digital technologies, we help us monitor and control carbon emissions more effectively and, as a result, help protect the earth.

The intelligent world of 2030 cannot exist without the digital transformation of industries across the spectrum. Huawei has accumulated extensive experience in helping industries such as government, transportation, finance, and electric power achieve digital transformation for the present and the future, through new connectivity, computing, platform, and ecosystem.

Currently, more than 700 cities worldwide and 228 of the Fortune Global 500 companies, including 58 of the Fortune Global 100 companies, have selected Huawei as their partner for digital transformation.

The platform integrated six ICT resources – IoT, big data, AI, video cloud, GIS, and ICP – to construct four comprehensive service systems: security, operations control, services, and management.

The single-view of airport operations has had significant benefits, including increasing flight punctuality to 87%, and intelligent stand allocation that can complete within seconds, reducing the number of shuttle bus passengers by 4 million annually. This makes Shenzhen Airport become the world’s first organisation to publish cases on the New Experience in Travel and Technologies (NEXTT) platform.

From a security point of view, the new system provides more accurate and intelligent control over terminal areas, airfields, public areas, and cargo areas. The facial recognition solution improves security check efficiency by 60%, reduces the risk of passengers’ loss of ID card by taking it out for checking, and meets the differentiated requirements of business passengers.

In the future, 5G will drive significant improvements in app capabilities that will help bring banking services into the digital world, helping branches and account managers regain engage with retail and corporate customers much more regularly.

Recently, the coronavirus outbreak has attracted global attention. The Zhejiang, Jiangsu, and Sichuan subsidiaries of the State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC) analysed the power index of enterprise resumptions based on big data from the electricity grid. This has helped provide local government authorities with an overview of the resumption of local enterprise production.

Huawei Enterprise Group’s “Platform + AI + Ecosystem” strategy focuses on cooperation with ecosystem partners, governments and enterprises to build a solid foundation for the intelligent world with new types of connectivity, computing, platform, and ecosystem, and together delivering the promise of the intelligent era.
