According to Huawei’s official website, on September 20, Huawei officially launched the “Kunpeng University Talents Program” at the Full Link Conference held in Shanghai.
The plan proposes that Huawei will invest 10 million yuan in 2019 to support Chinese universities in training talents in the computing industry. It is estimated that over 200,000 talents will be exported in five years.
It is reported that Huawei will further deepen the cooperation between schools and enterprises, joint teaching steering committee, alliance and Academy organizations, formulate personnel training programs and professional standards in key core technical fields, design and develop production-learning cooperative courses, build and promote open source communities of computing industry, and help universities train talents in shortage of computing industry.
At the meeting, a person in charge of Huawei said: “We will further cooperate with educational and scientific research institutions, so that every student can learn Kunpeng and Shengteng (Huawei chip) computing technology, so that each scientific research institution can support the strongest computing power.”
Computing industry urgently needs talents
According to the People’s Daily, with the wide application of artificial intelligence, big data and cloud computing, China’s economic development has ushered in a new growth point. The demand for employees in related fields has increased dramatically, and a number of new professional and technical professions have emerged as the times require.
Wang Yuanzhuo, Standing Committee of the Big Data Expert Committee of the Chinese Computer Society, said: “At present, there is a talent gap of 1.5 million in the new generation of information technology industry represented by big data, artificial intelligence and cloud computing.” By 2050, the talent gap will reach 9.5 million people.
Wu Qingjun, Director of Labor Relations Department, School of Labor and Personnel, Renmin University of China, said: “Whether it is the competition of artificial intelligence or cloud technology, in the final analysis, it is the competition of talents. When we can provide strong human resources guarantee for these industries, the emerging industries will continue to grow.
Industry and Business Areas Actively Help to Cultivate Talents
In recent years, more and more attention has been paid to helping colleges and universities train talents.
On September 20, the winners of the Science Exploration Award in 2019 were officially announced. A total of 50 winners, each of whom will receive a prize of RMB 3 million funded by Tencent Foundation in the next five years.
China Youth Daily found that the majority of the 50 winners were from universities, including 10 from Peking University and 10 from Tsinghua University.
The Management Committee of the Scientific Exploration Award expressed the hope that the Scientific Exploration Award would become a spiritual incentive for young scientists and technicians to devote themselves to exploring the unknown world and attract more young people to devote themselves to basic science and cutting-edge technology research.
Previously, China Youth Daily also reported on the signing of strategic cooperation agreements between Huawei and universities on many occasions. It is reported that Huawei has cooperated with more than 900 universities, including Tsinghua and Shanghai Jiaotong University.
In June this year, Huawei signed the Agreement on Cooperation in Innovative Talents Training and the 5G Cooperation Agreement with Wuhan University. The two sides will jointly train and recruit talents, build 5G Joint Innovation Laboratory and incubate 5G industry applications.
Previously, Huawei also signed a cooperation agreement with Ocean University of China. Both sides will promote abundant AI computing power and excellent scientific research personnel to enter the cause of marine protection.
This year, Chongqing University has become one of the first 35 universities in China to set up artificial intelligence undergraduate majors. In a cooperation agreement with Chongqing University in May, Huawei said it would help the university train research and innovation talents in the field of big data and artificial intelligence.
