Huawei mounts AI offensive despite security headwinds

Chinese group debuts fast chips for servers amid international bans

SHANGHAI -- Global telecom equipment leader Huawei Technologies is taking on the world's biggest semiconductor companies with chips to power artificial intelligence in data centers, even as allegations of Chinese espionage intensify concerns about the security of the industry's supply chain.

"We will provide solutions for all scenarios ... and I don't see anyone in the market having the capability to develop this or roll out similar things," Eric Xu, Huawei's rotating chairman, said on Wednesday as the Chinese company unveiled new AI chips that challenge U.S suppliers like Intel, Qualcomm and Nvidia.
