The cloud summit of the 2020 world VR industry conference, CO sponsored by the Ministry of industry and information technology and the people’s Government of Jiangxi Province, was held in Nanchang from October 19 to 20. The conference was held in the form of online and offline simultaneous meetings and international and domestic venues. At the meeting, wanghongtian, CEO of Inspur Group, delivered a keynote speech entitled “VR new wave of Intelligent Computing Education machine”. Wanghongtian said that the full application of virtual reality can not be separated from the strong support of computing center. Langchao uses comprehensive computing services to boost the development of VR and help the new highland of VR industry in Jiangxi.
“We say that the arrival of the new era of VR is inseparable from the gradual completion of the virtual reality industry chain and the support of various new technologies. The mutual integration of these new technologies promotes the arrival of the new era of VR. The rapid development of VR’s core computing power and the vigorous construction of various centers will help promote VR computing power into a new era.” Wang Hongtian said.
VR era calls for “intelligent engine” of enhanced computing power
VR external connection has the characteristics of a new era of high bandwidth and wide connection. With the expanding application of new technologies in all walks of life and fields, VR technology has accelerated the in-depth integration and application with all industries, and various new applications such as VR education, medical treatment, home furnishing, games, culture and tourism continue to innovate and iterate. The VR era is becoming more and more popular, which puts forward higher requirements for various technologies, and requires more powerful support for computing, connection and application. Therefore, Langchao proposed intelligent computing, Zhilian and Zhiying to jointly help VR develop better in the new era.
“We mainly support intelligent computing.” Wang Hongtian said. Inspur needs to provide various computing power services, data services and AI services. Its core is the production center of computing power. Inspur computing center has updated the open standards, the principles of intensive efficiency and universal benefits, integrated multiple computing power, realized resource pooling and cloud side collaboration with an open and agile computing platform, realized data sharing with data as the means of production, realized intelligence driven by powerful computing power services, and provided a continuous stream of intelligent services for social production and life.
Wanghongtian believes that as a new driving force for economic development, the smart computing center should first adhere to the principle of openness, from basic software Kaiyuan to new basic software Kaiyuan such as cloud computing and big data, continue to promote the development of information technology and promote the openness and prosperity of the entire IT industry. Taking into account the requirements of super large-scale infrastructure, the computing center should be intensive and efficient. As an infrastructure, the computing center should serve the public, provide computing power services, data services and intelligent services, and support intelligent application scenarios in smart cities, smart manufacturing, smart homes and other industries.
“At present, there are still some wisdom gaps in the industry wisdom transformation, such as how to select the most appropriate algorithm and model, how to optimize the algorithm through software and hardware, and how to carry out agile and efficient deployment of intelligent algorithms in specific fields.” Wanghongtian proposed. To fill these gaps, the computing center can provide an open computing power platform for overall application. It should support the functions of the computing center through four key links, namely, production computing power, aggregation computing power, production computing power, and release computing power, so as to achieve the efficient delivery of the whole process integration, accelerate the development of scenarios for smart applications in all walks of life, timely adjust the resource allocation, and respond to the preparation time of sudden needs, It can be shortened from a few days to a few hours to a few minutes, so as to efficiently improve resource utilization and help the rapid development of business.
Building a good machine learning process in the computing center is a very complex task, which requires the full cooperation of scientists who are proficient in Machine Algorithms and engineers with long-term experience, which often takes a long time and high cost. How to reduce AI development, application threshold and cost will become the next problem to be solved.
It is understood that Inspur has built an enterprise level one-stop model, which supports local and cloud deployment, search, comprehensive image regression, target detection and other scenarios.
5g speeds up cloud rendering for VR devices
Through image rendering in the cloud, it can help to achieve high-resolution and image performance of VR devices, so as to improve the dizziness and discomfort that users may feel when using VR devices for a long time. Among them, 5g can accelerate the process of cloud rendering, which is an important means of Zhilian and a key element to promote the development of VR.
In terms of 5g+vr application, Guangdong “Digital River” combines edge computing, artificial intelligence, VR and other technologies to share and analyze water area video images, and realize collection and monitoring, water quality analysis, remote law enforcement, etc. Based on 5g bandwidth, Guangdong Jieyang will transmit the grand occasion of the game back to the cloud platform, and present it on the screen through the rendering of later pictures and high-definition holographic virtual scenes, so as to realize the 5g+vr mode of watching the game.
In the process of industrialization of all new technologies, ecology needs to be built. Wanghongtian pointed out that the development of VR industry requires multiple enterprises and the combination of industries with multiple models. In order to meet the digital needs of thousands of industries, more network architectures and services and wider participation of partners are required.
