AI will revolutionise tech industry in India: NVIDIA’s Jensen Huang

According to Huang, AI has democratised computer science in the world because the technology behind it is open-source.

After NVIDIA’s GTC 2022 summit began with an action-packed keynote that mainly was based around GPU-related announcements, CEO Jensen Huang spoke with the media in a lengthy Q&A session. When asked about NVIDIA’s future vision for India by a fellow journalist, Huang responded with enthusiasm. “Our three largest geographies are California, China and India, with India being slightly larger than China.” Huang underlined NVIDIA’s interest in India’s talent pool, saying, “If you have a lot of AI friends, send them to NVIDIA.” 

Huang also spoke about how AI could benefit developing countries. “There is a technological divide in the world because technology has benefited developed countries far more than developing countries,” he said. According to Huang, AI has the ability to democratise computer science in the world because it is open-source. 

He went on to praise the enterprising sentiment in the country, saying, “I believe that AI is going to absolutely revolutionise the tech industry in India. The number of startups in India is skyrocketing, and every single one of them relies on AI.” Even if it is less likely that India could create original algorithms, there was a hunger to learn, he said. 

Huang then expressed an interest in partnering with semiconductor companies like Texas Instruments to set up Indian chipmaking units. “We work with multiple brands like Intel, Broadcom and AMD and would love to partner with chipmaking companies in India,” Huang added. 

Earlier this month, Vishal Dhupar, MD of Asia-South NVIDIA, spoke about India’s role in accelerated computing and how the majority of the software developers had given the country their stamp of approval.
