Furthermore, the value of AI and operating systems have been elevated by the global surge of AI large language models. In light of this, ThunderSoft continues to be closely connected to the ongoing computing revolution.
We are committed to upholding the principles of technology as the foundation, the ecosystem as the first, and steadfast globalization, and this commitment positions us to embark on a journey of enlightened computing in the era of AI large models. We will focus on the second growth curve (existing business + AI) and the third growth curve (AI + new business).
Looking ahead to the next 10 years, ThunderSoft is positioned to evolve into a globally oriented, digitally driven company, offering state-of-the-art intelligent operating systems, along with products and technologies for edge-side artificial intelligence.
We persistently strive for excellence in the ever-turning wheel of the intelligent industry, forging ahead with determination based on outstanding capabilities in operating system development and a profound understanding of edge scenarios.
The IoT industry is at a crucial turning point marked by the revolutions in large-scale models and intelligent hardware. Alongside our innovative counterparts in the IoT space, we are consistently establishing technological barriers in domains like smart cameras and XR, aiming to achieve industry-leading status. Our successful entry into the non-regulatory-grade automotive market represents a pioneering fusion of IoT with the automotive sector, expanding into new realms through cross-industry collaboration. As for the realm of smart vehicles, our innovative products and diverse ecosystem are actively contributing to customer value. We incorporate large-scale AI models into the Intelligent Cockpit Ecockpit 8.0, introduce an integrated software and hardware solution for intelligent driving domain control, partner with Toyota to introduce the Kanzi One product for HMI design and development, pioneer innovations in CMS, and globally debut the DISHUI OS complete vehicle operating system. Each of these initiatives is at the forefront of advancing automotive intelligence and centralized computing. In terms of smart software, we continually reinforce our advantages in the Android ecosystem in the field of smartphones and consistently expand the capabilities of the Harmony OS ecosystem, achieving a breakthrough from 0 to 1 in HarmonyOS app development. Simultaneously, we actively embrace change, adapting to the transformative era of edge-side intelligence with AI smartphones, AI PCs, and other intelligent devices.
We are committed to exerting effort and fostering even closer connections with customers and ecosystem partners.
We continue to deepen our collaborations and explore new frontiers with core chip manufacturers such as Qualcomm, NVIDIA, Intel, Samsung, AMD, and others. For instance, through our collaboration with Qualcomm, we have successfully inaugurated the Intelligent Connected Vehicle Innovation Center, implementing a significant customer strategy. In addition, breakthroughs in partnerships with Google have expanded our overseas business and deepening our ecosystem with China Mobile and Amazon Web Services has fostered innovative ventures. At the same time, the joint ventures with CARIAD, a subsidiary of Volkswagen Group, and strategic cooperation with Mazda help us demonstrate our commitment to collaborative success with automakers, so we solidify our position as a global leader in intelligent automotive software.
We consistently engage in thoughtful reflection, centering our attention on technology, gaining insights into the industry, and anticipating the future.
In 2023, we launched the Rubik Foundation Large Language Model, achieving system integration on multi-chip platforms and successfully running a 13 billion parameter model on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 series chip platform—a pioneering breakthrough in the industry. We also introduced the RUBIK Intelligent Office Platform, serving as the technological foundation for AI in the era of large models. Additionally, our RUBIK Toolkit programming tool was unveiled to enhance enterprise efficiency. Simultaneously, we released multiple end-side large model solutions covering diverse fields such as automotive, robotics, and AI PCs, contributing to industry advancement. In the cloud domain, we established joint labs with Amazon Web Services and Beijing Academy of Artifical Intelligence (BAAI) to drive technological innovation and application.Our accomplishments have expedited the iteration and elevation of the dual engines that combine artificial intelligence and operating systems.
The power revolution has illuminated the world and artificial intelligence has ignited the brilliance of the computing world. As a digital pioneer driving the computational revolution, we are committed to embracing change and pursuing excellence.
