Direct attack Baidu and Intel set up 5G+AI edge computing Joint Laboratory

Sina Technologies News September 25 afternoon, today, Baidu and Intel co-sponsored the "5G + AI edge computing joint laboratory" officially opened, aimed at accelerating the domestic edge computing (MEC) technology research and development. The two partners will give full play to their advantages in technology and application development, and jointly explore technologies, products and business models in artificial intelligence, vehicle networking, 5G, edge computing, search, online translation, VR/AR, Internet of Things, etc.

In the era of artificial intelligence, the maturity of 5G and other technologies will not only be a rate increase, but also a new mode of vertical industrial cooperation and development opportunities. At the same time, facing the idea of unified platform for edge computing and the initiative of establishing OTE cooperation alliance, Baidu took the lead in layout and construction of Over The Edge (OTE), accelerating the 5G landing process.

Oriented towards the unified management of edge node resources, intelligent scheduling and 5G edge feature information fusion, Baidu's ongoing OTE deepens Baidu's leading technical capabilities through function computing, AI reasoning, edge transcoding, location services, cache acceleration and large data processing, thereby enhancing its unmanned vehicle, AR/VR, video surveillance, and interaction. Live broadcast, intelligent robot and other extensive layout. Through VM/Docker/API/SDK and OTE Stack (Baidu Unified Access Platform for Edge Resources), resource pooling, intelligent scheduling, virtualization and container processing are realized in cloud edge cluster, MEC edge cluster, enterprise service cluster and IoT intelligent terminal cluster. Fully empowered in cloud edge nodes, pervasive servers, intelligent terminals and MEC nodes, the 5G technology architecture is constructed through a complete framework.

At the same time, OTE will shield the underlying heterogeneous features, reduce the Internet application access edge resource threshold, provide edge solutions in different scenarios, and output standard multi-level acceleration capability. At present, OTE platform is carrying out PoC test and verification for Internet of Things, online translation, video edge processing, and will eventually benefit every business with low latency and high reliability of edge computing.

This cooperation, Baidu and Intel will promote OTE platform research and development, to achieve the cloud edge infrastructure, distributed computing resources, mobile network edge and intelligent terminals, such as Internet edge computing unified management, and accelerate the launch of related commercial products. In addition, the two sides will cooperate extensively in the verification of typical application scenarios of 5G MEC, the deployment of 5G network OTE platform, the formulation of unified API for edge computing, and the acceleration of edge hardware.

Baidu Systems Executive Director Hou Zhenyu said that 5G is not only a technological change, but also will give birth to new industrial cooperation and development opportunities. The Joint Laboratory of 5G+AI edge computing built with Intel is an important step forward by Baidu AI to 5G era. Edge computing OTE alliance will become the link between Baidu AI and 5G, making AI closer and serving users. (Xin Ling)
