    Feb 13: Huawei & Partners Win World AI Prize at Cannes Festival for Protecting Norway’s Wild Salmon

    Huawei and partners received the Neurons Awards Special Jury Prize at World AI Cannes Festival 2023 for an AI-based solution designed to save Norway’s wild Atlantic salmon from extinction.

    With its populating halving since the 1980s, the wild Atlantic salmon is endangered due to the mass-influx of Pacific salmon.

    The solution uses underwater video technology and AI to identify Pacific salmon. An automated gate system filters the invasive species into a holding tank, preventing them from swimming upstream to breed.
