At the 19th Annual Global Analyst Summit, Shenzhen-based technology company Huawei announced that it is seeking to attract world-class talents to boost its innovation efforts through the Top Minds recruitment program launched recently.
“At Huawei, when we talk about innovation, the first thing we think is people,” said Ken Hu, rotating chair, Huawei. “We don’t care where you’re from, where you graduated, or what you studied,” he continued. “As long as you have a dream for the future and believe you can make it happen, we want you to come and join us. We provide world-class challenges, a powerful platform, and all the resources you need to explore the unknown.”
Moving forward, Huawei is taking active steps to boost its business resilience and ensure steady development.
“Everything we imagine today is very likely to be too conservative — too little — for tomorrow,” said Dr. Zhou Hong, president of Huawei’s Institute of Strategic Research. “We have to meet the future with bold hypotheses and a bold vision, and throw caution to the wind as we push to break through bottlenecks in theory and technology. This is the only way forward.”
Huawei came up with 10 challenges it hopes to address leveraging innovations.
- How do machines perceive the world, and can we build models that teach machines how to understand the world?
- How can we better understand the physiological mechanisms of the human body, including how the eight systems of the bodywork, as well as human intent and intelligence?
- New sensing and control capabilities, e.g., brain-computer interfaces, muscle-computer interfaces, 3D displays, virtual touch, virtual smell, and virtual taste
- Real-time, unobtrusive blood pressure, blood sugar, and heart monitoring, and strong AI-assisted discoveries in chemical pharmaceuticals, biopharmaceuticals, and vaccines
- Application-centric, efficient, automated, and intelligent software for greater value and a better experience
- Reaching and circumventing Shannon’s limit to enable efficient, high-performance connectivity both regionally and globally
- Adaptive and efficient computing models, non-Von Neumann architectures, unconventional components, and explainable and debuggable AI
- Inventing new molecules, catalysts, and components with intelligent computing
- Developing new processes that surpass CMOS, cost less, and are more efficient
- Safe, efficient energy conversion and storage, as well as on-demand services
According to Huawei, most Asia Pacific (APAC) countries have very clear and forward-looking digital strategies. As APAC goes digital, a skilled ICT workforce will be critical.
The region has a unique advantage in this area because it has a younger population than the US or Europe. Accelerating the development of ICT talent in the region will require concerted efforts from governments, businesses, and people from all walks of life,” the company said in a statement.
In the Philippines, Huawei also had several programs for cultivating the local ICT talents, such as ICT Academy, Seeds for the Future, which covered the Philippines for years, and benefited over 9,000 ICT students, according to Daniel Guo, VP of Huawei Philippines.
