Today, the PyTorch Foundation, a neutral home for the deep learning community to collaborate on the open source PyTorch framework and ecosystem, announced that Huawei has joined as a premier member.

Huawei has been a long-standing supporter and contributor to the PyTorch Ecosystem, and, through the release of progressive diverse computing, provides easier access to the PyTorch ecosystem for more hardware vendors. By joining as a premier member, Huawei will continue to optimize PyTorch to fully unleash Ascend computing capabilities.

“We are delighted to join the PyTorch Foundation, and hope to further collaborate with other member companies and expand the community to a wider audience,” said by Zhang Dixuan, President of Huawei Ascend Computing Business, “This move benefits both Huawei, PyTorch, and the wider AI ecosystem. It also aligns with our long-held beliefs in openness, innovation, collaboration, and shared success, and we are confident that it will spur new innovations in the global AI community.”

Huawei unveiled the All Intelligence strategy to accelerate intelligence across all industries. To cater the demand for AI computing needs, Huawei invests in the system-level technologies, and that belief is centered on open hardware and software that enables partners and fosters talent. This strategy aligns with the PyTorch Foundation’s mission to develop AI as part of a sustainable open source ecosystem and produce inclusive technological feats.

PyTorch Foundation Executive Director Ibrahim Haddad said, “We are delighted to welcome Huawei to the PyTorch Foundation. Huawei is a leading body in researching computer vision, natural language processing, speech recognition, and other emerging areas, and has proven experience in the field of foundation models. We have no doubt that we will benefit from their support and guidance.”

As a premier member, Huawei is granted one seat to the PyTorch Foundation Governing Board, and will help set policies, bylaws, and mission and vision statements that define the overarching scope of the PyTorch Foundation’s initiatives, technical vision, and direction.

The Board welcomes Huawei representative Fred Li, Head of Computing Open Source Development Team at Huawei. Fred leads an active and creative team in R&D and operations projects under the principle of “upstream first”, which aims to make diverse computing power ubiquitous.
