Chinese tech giant Huawei has unveiled on Friday its latest AI model, the Pangu Model 3.0, which is designed to meet the specific needs of individual industries.

The model has a three-layer structure, with basic models for language and vision at the bottom, industry-specific models in the middle, and specific features at the top. For example, the model can be used to predict typhoon routes, provide hotline services, or detect foreign objects on a conveyor belt.

Zhang Ping'an, head of Huawei's cloud services, claimed that the Pangu Model 3.0 can quickly adapt to new usage scenarios and can be customized by users to meet their specific needs. The company has also released a developer kit to enable customers to train their own models based on the Pangu platform.

The Pangu Model 3.0 has already been applied to weather forecasting, with significant results. A research paper published in the Nature journal, on Wednesday, found that the model can do a better job than the current system, thanks to its use of AI and 39 years of global weather data.

The paper's academic reviewers also noted that the company's Pangu-Weather program can run on a desktop computer, making it accessible to a wider range of users.

In May 2023, the Pangu Model 3.0 accurately predicted the trajectory of Typhoon Mawar five days before it changed course in the eastern waters of China's Taiwan. This is just one example of the model's potential to improve weather forecasting and help people prepare for extreme weather events.
