Visit Huawei as the day of chip “off supply” approaches

As the US’s crackdown on Huawei continues to escalate, some elements that are slightly tragic, but more exciting, are gradually increasing in Huawei’s release activities. On October 10, during the keynote speech of Huawei Developer Conference 2020, Yu Chengdong, CEO of Huawei’s consumer business, said, “no one can extinguish the stars in the sky. Every developer is the spark Huawei wants to gather” in the circle of friends. Perhaps not coincidentally, the opening time of the Huawei developers conference is just near September 15, when the United States implemented the “cut-off” of Huawei chips. The latest series of Huawei releases revealed significant information. < p > < p > it seems that Huawei’s Songshan Lake Base operates all day long. At about 22:00 p.m. on the 9th, the lighting rate of the base, which accommodates more than 20000 Huawei employees, including 70% of R & D personnel, still exceeded 90%. On the 15th of a few days later, according to the restrictions of the US ban, all domestic and foreign chip processing enterprises using US technology patents will be prohibited from producing and processing chips for China For Huawei, which has the top chip design level, it can be described as “the worst situation”. However, on the night when the “deadline” is approaching, Huawei’s Songshan Lake Base seems to be doing as usual. The scattered pedestrians around the lake and the incessant chirping of insects show the world “peace in crisis”. < p > < p > the next day, the keynote speech session of Huawei Developer Conference 2020 was an exciting scene. The most striking feature of the keynote speech was the appearance of Huawei’s “Hongmeng” operating system 2.0. Yu Chengdong announced that harmonyos 2.0 fully enabled the full scene ecology and officially released beta version for application developers. In December 2020, the mobile version will be released. Next year, Huawei’s smart phones will be fully upgraded to support “Hongmeng” 2.0. In the face of repression, everyone is concerned about Huawei’s “future”. None of the speaking executives gave a direct answer, but the two lines printed on the big screen before the speech began gave the answer: don’t stop, don’t pause, work together. < / P > < p > “we don’t want to press the pause key.” Zhang Ping An, President of cloud services for Huawei’s consumer business, announced in a keynote speech entitled “in the past year, the construction of Huawei’s mobile service ecosystem has accelerated, and the number of registered developers of HMS ecology has reached 1.8 million, nearly double the 910000 during the developer conference last year. There are 96000 integrated HMS core applications in the world, more than doubled. The number of overseas high-quality applications on the Huawei application market has jumped from 6000 last year to 73000. As the top 3 application store in the world, appgallery has distributed 261 billion applications worldwide from January to August this year, helping boutique applications in different countries and regions reach 700 million Huawei users worldwide. “The sales of our HMS mobile phones have increased rapidly since May this year, which represents the love of Huawei mobile phones by overseas users and the recognition of HMS ecology. The world’s third largest mobile application ecosystem has risen. ” < / P > < p > in addition to “Hongmeng” system and Huawei HMS, Huawai hilink, which makes 10 billion IOT devices easy to connect, control and interact, and Huawei hilink, which helps scientific research institutions, innovation institutions, industry organizations, medical institutions and other industry partners to carry out innovation research efficiently, accelerate technological breakthroughs, incubate application innovation, and quickly realize achievement transformation Research platform. Facing hundreds of developers on the stage, Yu Chengdong said that at this developer conference, Huawei will fully open up its core technology, software and hardware capabilities, and work with developers to drive the vigorous development of the whole scene intelligent ecology. “No one can extinguish the starry sky. Every developer is the spark Huawei wants to gather. ” < / P > < p > “today’s developer conference is just before the day of chip off supply, but no executives directly mentioned this topic at the opening ceremony. Why?” At the media exchange meeting after the speech session, Wang Chenglu, President of Huawei’s consumer business software department, seemed to have too many words to say: “there are certain difficulties, but I prefer to see the positive side of it. Because of such restrictions, I believe all industries in China should be sober up. I have been working in software for more than 20 years, and I feel from the bottom of my heart 。 We can’t say that China’s high-tech industry is not prosperous, because so many so-called high-tech enterprises have entered the world’s top 500, but if we really look at it, such “luxuriant branches” are very dangerous and can be pushed down in an instant. Why? Because we don’t have a “root”, from this point of view, chip sanctions give the Chinese industry an excellent opportunity to rebuild. No choice is the right choice. ” < p > < p > obviously, in the eyes of Wang Chenglu, the disconnection of chip supply has revealed the “root” problem faced by China’s IT industry, and what he and his team have done is how to “root”. In May 2019, after Huawei was listed in the “entity list” by the U.S. Department of Commerce, Google in the United States only allows Huawei mobile phones to use the open source code of Android system, and is not allowed to use the official Android version of Google and Google’s GMS services. The ban not only affects Huawei’s overseas sales of mobile phones, but also threatens that Google will not be able to license its Android system in the future. To this end, Huawei has launched Plan B – developing its own operating system and building its own developer ecosystem from scratch. < p > < p > Wang Chenglu bluntly said that an operating system, if not applied to it, is meaningless. “To develop an application, you must understand what the programming framework is like, what kind of programming language to do, and whether there is such a compiler? Do I have the tools to assemble these software? Let’s think about it. Our software developers in China exceed the total population of many countries. Why can’t we make excellent software before? Because if there is no “root”, all of us here will be in a state of loose sand, worthless and without any combat effectiveness. ” In the past, we were waiting for the opportunity to rebuild electronic products in the United States? When I did the app, I went public in a year, and then I became a billionaire with free finance. We didn’t have the patience to sit down and work hard. The more stories like this, all the innovation in China will be killed. ” Wang Chenglu made a metaphor: “China’s software development is particularly like assembly workers on production lines. Almost all the software technologies we use come from the United States, and the ‘production line’ belongs to others. What is our competitiveness? It’s a pity that so many excellent universities in China have trained so many excellent computer and software professionals. It’s very sad that in the past ten years, our universities no longer train computer structure talents, no one studies these things, no one studies databases. Such a situation is very dangerous. If we have no roots, Chinese software will never It will be competitive. ” < / P > < p > “the advent of” Hongmeng “is an excellent opportunity for China to cross-border and gather the forces of more platforms, so that the” roots “of China’s own software can grow out. The deeper the roots are, the more likely it is to grow towering trees and lush forests, which is the long-term flourishing of branches and leaves.” Wang Chenglu’s response was not high, but slow and powerful. He said that on the day of retirement, he would like to appeal to all Chinese software people to work together to build up the “root” of Chinese software and root it down. “Then we really have the right to speak. At that time, China’s software must be invincible.” < / P > < p > “stars” and “stars all over the sky” are the images mentioned by speakers many times in this Huawei developer conference. What is the meaning of frequently emphasizing “stars” when the “cut off day” of US sanctions is approaching? Jiang junmu, deputy editor in chief of c114 communication network and a senior science and technology commentator, told that “starry sky” is relative to “Lighthouse” and “Torch”. It expresses Huawei’s emphasis on ecology and developers, but also has a kind of lofty ambition that has lost Google’s support and is not worried about: “without Android and GMS, I have tens of thousands of developers to rely on.” < / P > < p > “whether it is the release of Hongmeng OS 2.0 or the latest progress of HMS core, the most important signal released is: in the software level, Huawei’s consumer business is no longer stuck.” Jiang junmu told reporters that Huawei’s series of releases are to make up for the previous short board, and the anti attack ability will be further enhanced. Fang Xingdong, President of the Internet and Social Research Institute of Zhejiang Media University, said that in the face of the hegemony of the US government, Huawei can only face the cruel reality, meet completely unfair and reasonable sanctions, and do its best to drive the Chinese industrial chain. Relying on the non-U.S. industrial chain, it will shrink first, rebuild a new industrial chain, and finally rely on its strength to start again. “The pros and cons of this battle should be evaluated in five years, ten years and even longer. These years are undoubtedly Huawei’s painful years. But Huawei will be stronger in the future. ” In an interview after the speech session, Wang Yanmin, head of Huawei’s mobile service ecology, told reporters that in his opinion, the so-called “cut-off” period in the United States actually does not exist, “but the pressure will always exist.” Baidu continues to work on quantum computing to lay a solid foundation for new infrastructure construction
