Honor’s 4-Layer AI Architecture

Honor’s biggest focus at the VivaTech keynote was to present its 4-Layer AI Architecture. The company also showcased its strategic focus on integrating AI into MagicOS.

The 4-layer ARchitecture comprises distinct levels. At the base layer, Cross-device and Cross-OS AI is the foundation of an open ecosystem. It allows computing power and services to be shared among devices and operation systems.

Building upon this foundation, the Platform-level AI layer enables a personalized operation system. It delivers an intent-based human-computer interaction with personalized resource allocation.

The third layer, App-Level AI, introduces a wave of innovative, generative AI applications. Finally, at the top, the Interface to the Cloud-AI services layer provides users easy access to massive cloud services while prioritizing privacy protection. The goal is to create a truly holistic and future-forward AI experience.
