Huawei Technologies Co unveiled what it said is the world's fastest artificial intelligence computing platform on Wednesday, showcasing its steady progress to beef up technological prowess despite the restrictions it faces from the US government.

Huawei said the Atlas 900 is the world's fastest AI training cluster. The move is part of the company's consistent input into chips, one of the two key technologies that Huawei believes is of utmost importance to building a fully connected, intelligent world.

"We believe that connectivity and computing will be woven into the fabric of everything and are worth our continuous investment, Hu Houkun, rotating chairman of Huawei, said.

According to Hu, Huawei already has made significant strides in connectivity for the past 30 years, from fixed networks to wireless, from 2G, 3G and 4G, all the way up to 5G.

"As people and computers are closer than ever, the improvement of computing power is crucial to human beings' advancement forward," Hu said.

The computing market will be worth more than $2 trillion by 2023, according to a forecast by market research company Gartner.
