East China's Anhui province is showcasing its latest innovations at the ongoing 6th China International Import Expo.

The event kicked off on Nov 5 and will run to Nov 10 in East China's Shanghai.

One of the highlights in the Anhui pavilion is the quantum computing platform named Zuchongzhi, which was developed by the University of Science and Technology of China or USTC in Hefei, capital of Anhui province.

It can perform large-scale random quantum circuits sampling about 10 million times faster than the fastest supercomputer to date.

Anhui-based artificial intelligence company iFlytek is showcasing its AI products, such as smart translators and smart dictionary pens, in the China pavilion.

The company in May unveiled its homegrown AI large language model called the SparkDesk, which is considered a rival to OpenAI's ChatGPT, an AI chatbot that has taken the world by storm and triggered a new AI wave.

This year's CIIE has attracted participants and guests from 154 countries, regions and international organizations.

More than 3,000 exhibitors have registered for the event, coming together to explore new market opportunities and to drive the global economic recovery to pre-pandemic levels.
