NVIDIA CEO contribution to modern technology rewarded by Time magazine

Jensen Huang has been named one of the most influential people of 2021. 

Jensen Huang, a Taiwanese-American billionaire who co-founded NVIDIA Corporation and now serves as its CEO and president has been rewarded with a place in Time’s 100 most influential people in 2021.

Huang who has a master’s degree in electrical engineering from Standford University is considered one of the most technically savvy CEOs, says Andrew Ng, a founder of DeepLearning.AI who wrote an article about Jensen for Time.

Jensen’s gamble to focus on graphics processing unit has paid off with the company now making billions of dollars each year from gaming and data center markets, both requiring more and more processing power.

In the video made for Time, Jensen says that GPUs are used to simulate a real-world in games, but also notices the importance of the growing need for artificial intelligence acceleration for scientific purposes.

Among Jensen Huang in this year’s Time 100 list, we can also find Apple CEO Tim Cook and Tesla/SpaceX CEO Elon Musk.
