Huawei erects AI-powered Rubik’s Cube in London to celebrate the Mate 20 launch

Huawei announced the Mate 20 Pro last week in London and to celebrate, Huawei has erected a large, digital version of a classic puzzle game: the Rubik’s Cube. The idea is to demonstrate the power of Huawei’s NPU, which minimizes the energy and time required to make large calculations.

To solve the puzzle, a player must use the app on a Mate 20 Pro in front of the giant Cube. “Each move is passed through the AI model and algorithms to give the user hints, via the app, about what the best next move is.”

Puzzle cubes have caused debate amongst mathematicians for decades, with numerous theories about the most efficient way to solve them. We’ve been able to use the sophisticated AI in the Huawei Mate 20 Pro to offer players something interactive and intelligent. – Justin Costello, Huawei Director of Marketing, UK/Ireland

So yeah, if you find yourself in London and see the big Rubik’s Cube on the South Bank of London and you’ve never been able to solve one on your own, go solve it with Huawei’s help. It’s never too late to achieve your childhood dreams.
