The Tianjin Artificial Intelligence Computing Center, which was established by Huawei and the city's Hebei district, was inaugurated in Tianjin on Saturday.

With total investment of up to 1.27 billion yuan ($184.6 million), the center's construction began in August. The first phase was completed on Dec 30.

Composed of 41 modular computer rooms and a planned computing power of 300 petaflops, it is capable of being the "super brain" of the modern city.

Petaflops is a unit of measure for calculating the speed of a computer. It equals to 1 quadrillion floating-point operations per second.

At present, the center has 58 contracted users, including 35 enterprises and 23 scientific research institutes and universities.

Zhu Peng, vice-mayor of Tianjin, said that as a piece of high-level artificial intelligence software and hardware infrastructure, the center creates a first-class ecosystem and provides high-quality services for enterprises, scientific research institutions and universities in their research, production, and industrialization.

"Tianjin will continue to build a complete industrial development ecosystem with more favorable policies and an efficient government environment," he said.
