Moore Threads Intelligent Technology (Beijing) Co., Ltd. (abbreviation: Moore Threads) and OpenMMLab, an open source system for artificial intelligence visual algorithms, recently formalized their strategic partnership.
Moore threads multi-GPU is an advanced infrastructure for intelligent computing power, and open source algorithms are an important driving force for artificial intelligence. These two factors work together to help artificial intelligence technology advance and the artificial intelligence industry develop more quickly. Moore Threads and OpenMMLab will deeply adapt to the training and reasoning of mainstream computer vision algorithms, and jointly optimize performance, based on the powerful computing performance of multi-functional GPU and the efficient and general characteristics of OpenMMLab computer vision open source algorithm system. Simultaneously, the two parties will collaborate with ecological partners to provide technical support for a diverse range of deep learning platform developers, as well as jointly promote the collaborative innovation of the local software and hardware ecosystem, as well as the prosperity and development of the developer community.
OpenMMLab is the most comprehensive open source computer vision algorithm system in the deep learning era, covering a wide range of algorithm fields and application scenarios and realizing the entire value chain from training to deployment. More than 100 upgraded versions of OpenMMLab have been released, continuously improving the code quality, ease of use, and readability of the algorithm library, and continuously adding new academic cutting-edge algorithms. More than 30 algorithm libraries have been released since the open source in 2018. In many algorithm fields, such as classification, detection, segmentation, and video understanding, there are over 300 algorithm implementations and 2300 pre-trained models. OpenMMLab has nearly 70,000 stars on GitHub, over 60,000 code clones, and over 1.5 million page views per month, and is used by millions of developers in over 100 countries and regions worldwide.
As the artificial intelligence industry enters the stage of accelerated implementation, there are more and more scenarios involving a variety of different algorithm models and chip architectures, posing multiple challenges to developers and AI companies. Moore Threads and OpenMMLab’s strategic collaboration aims to accelerate the coordinated development of local algorithm frameworks and intelligent computing chips, as well as to jointly drive the continuous evolution of China’s artificial intelligence. With Moore’s thread multi-function GPU and software stack’s powerful computing power, as well as OpenMMLab’s extensive algorithm model support, it will greatly help AI developers simplify the development process, realize seamless connection from model training, deployment, and inference, and help open up the implementation of AI. It will encourage the collaborative development of local artificial intelligence software and hardware ecology, as well as the use of Moore threads multi-function GPUs in various artificial intelligence scenarios and industries.
Moore Threads’ core strategy has always been the ecological construction of software and developers, and community power is also an important part of the OpenMMLab ecology. Both parties share a common understanding of ecological construction. Moore Threads will expand with OpenMMLab in the future through additional forms such as competitions, trainings, and seminars, fully supporting the cultivation of Chinese AI development talents, gathering the wisdom of more AI developers, and jointly creating a prosperous AI technology ecosystem.
