Abstract : Huawei on Wednesday launched Atlas 900, a super fast AI training cluster, at its annual Huawei Connect conference in Shanghai.

SHANGHAI, Sept. 18 (Xinhua) -- Huawei on Wednesday launched Atlas 900, a super fast AI training cluster, at its annual Huawei Connect conference in Shanghai.

Hu Houkun, deputy chairman of the Chinese tech giant, said Atlas 900 is the "world's fastest AI training cluster," which combines the power of thousands of Ascend processors, and can handle models in seconds that used to take several months to train.

The cluster finished the entire training of the ResNet-50 model, an industry standard for measuring AI training performance, in 59.8 seconds, about 10 seconds faster than the previous world record, Hu said.

The powerhouse of AI computing will bring new possibilities to different fields of scientific research and business innovation from astronomy to oil exploration.

Huawei has deployed Atlas 900 on Huawei Cloud as a cloud service to let its clients have a quick taste of the AI training product, according to Hu.
