One of the most technologically advanced telecom industry giants, which was once compared with Apple, Samsung, and other mobile giants, has now turned into developing AI technologies for Pig farming. Yes, you have heard it right. The company we are talking about is Huawei. Once the brand was among the top 3 smartphone brands globally and now due to low sales in 2020 has turned into developing AI technologies for Pig farming to make up for the loss they incurred in 2020.
According to the reports from the BBC, Huawei has incurred around 42 percent drops in smartphones’ sales because of Trump’s administration’s trade sanctions.
So to make up for the loss it had incurred in 2020, the company now has turned into developing artificial intelligence technologies for Pig farmhouses in china; the reason behind that is pig farming is one of the most significant industry in China, so that’s why the company management has decided to invest there to make up for the losses they incurred in 2020.
As the world is moving towards 5G technology and Huawei having the most advanced 5G technology in hand was thrown out of the business due to the new trade sanctions that Trump’s governments made as due to that the company wasn’t allowed to do any business with American Companies and other industries as well.
The even UK also stopped doing business with Huawei as they fear that Huawei might have links with Chinese governments. So that was one of the primary reasons why the company was forced to move into the pig farming industry.
The Huawei company is now designing and manufacturing AI-based technologies, mostly facial recognition or health monitor technologies, to monitor the pigs’ health and their diet.
However, the Huawei spokesperson seems encouraged as he said in an interview with the BBC that their new venture would help advance traditional industries into ICT: Information and Communications Technology it will create and add more value to these industries in the 5G era.
Apart from developing AI-based technologies in the pig farming industry, the company is also looking forward to indulging in the mining industry. The CEO of Huawei, Ren Zhengfei, announced they are developing a mining innovation lab in northern china.
