Brain++ was awarded at the sixth World Internet Conference

2019-10-20

(BEIJING, October 20, 2019) - Brain++, a proprietary deep learning framework developed by Megvii Technology Limited, was recognized as one of the World's Leading Scientific and Technological Achievements at the sixth World Internet Conference in Wuzhen, China on October 20, 2019. Tang Wenbin, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer at Megvii, participated in the conference and delivered a keynote address on Brain++.

 

Developing AI algorithms requires a considerable amount of research and system engineering. While the industry generally leverages deep learning frameworks to develop and train algorithms, related learning and use costs can be high and difficult to scale. A deep learning framework on its own is no longer sufficient. An end-to-end operating system, from data to solutions to computing power to deep learning framework, is required to meet the ever-evolving needs of the industry.

 

"To solve this problem, we began developing Brain++, an end-to-end AI algorithm platform, in 2014," Tang said. "The goal is to allow R&D personnel to obtain a wide range of technical capabilities, from data to algorithm industrialization, so they do not have to reinvent the wheel and can easily accelerate the deployment of AI. Brain++ also integrates AutoML, which employs algorithms to train other algorithms, and uses AI to create AI."

 


Tang Wenbin, Co-Founder and CTO of Megvii, introducing Brain++


Currently, all employees at Megvii train and deploy algorithms using Brain++, without relying on deep learning frameworks developed by third parties. Brain++ has helped Megvii secure 22 first places in international AI competitions. Anchored by Brain++, Megvii has developed comprehensive full-stack artificial intelligence solutions across three key industries, namely personal IoT, city IoT and supply chain IoT.

Megvii also showcased its comprehensive full-stack solutions to international participants at the Light of Internet Expo, held concurrently with the World Internet Conference in Wuzhen.
