Taiwan ‘in middle’ of AI revolution

Taiwan is in the center of the new artificial intelligence (AI) revolution, Nvidia Corp CEO Jensen Huang told a gathering with Taiwanese on Thursday in Silicon Valley’s largest city, San Jose.

Tainan-born Huang said it must be celebrated that “Taiwan is right in the middle” of a new industrial revolution in which “something new is being made, and made in a new way.”

Huang recalled the manufacturing process of the RIVA 128 graphics processing unit, Nvidia’s first commercial success, describing it as the “most complicated chip at the time.”

As Nvidia did not have the budget, he wrote a letter to Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co founder Morris Chang (張忠謀), who called him, beginning their nearly three decades of collaboration.

“Nvidia and Taiwan grew up together… Taiwan saved Nvidia, and I mean that,” he said.

Huang said he went to Taiwan, and Nvidia worked together with companies such as Asustek Computer Inc and Micro-Star International Co.

“My job was very simple — create the technology and create the market,” he said.

Thirty years later, Nvidia is still doing the same job of “creating the technology and creating the market,” and is still working with the “same partners,” he said, referring to those attending the banquet.

Huang said he is certain there is no company in the world that is changing the world 30 years later with the most consequential potential technology in history, but still has the “same friends and same partners.”

“I want to thank all of you. I love you guys,” he said.

Huang also called himself “a very good ambassador of Taiwan,” because he understands the importance of Taiwan at the “center of this new computing revolution, this AI revolution.”

“We must make sure we tell that story this time,” he said.

“Go Taiwan,” he said in Chinese, while raising his glass. Taipei Times
