Nvidia’s CEO, Jensen Huang, declared that at “ChatGPT is one of the greatest things ever created in the computing industry.”
“What OpenAI has done, what the team over there has done, genuinely is one of the greatest things that has ever been done for computing. We have democratized computing in a very, very large way, and so I am very, very excited about that.”
Responding to a student’s inquiry during the Q&A session in Berkeley Haas University in California, earlier this month, described the new software as a “very, very big deal.”
“It can write a poem, it could fill out a spreadsheet, it can write a SQL query and do a SQL query, it can write python code, it can write. And if it can’t do it today, of course it will be able to do it someday,” he added.
“For a lot of people who have been working on this, we have been waiting for this moment. This is the iPhone moment, if you will, of artificial intelligence. This is the time when all of the big ideas about mobile computing and all that, it all came together in a product.”
Huang acknowledged that ChatGPT’s impact is yet to be felt by the rest of the world.
“Now the question is, how is it gonna impact healthcare? How’s it gonna impact transportation? How’s it gonna impact retail, logistics? How’s it gonna impact manufacturing? The other trillion hundred dollar industry that is today, largely not served by technology. Computing industry is tiny compared to the world’s industry. And so we could do something now.”
As an example of generative AI, ChatGPT generates human-like content based on input data. Another example is OpenAI’s own DALL-E 2, which creates realistic images from even the most bizarre text descriptions.
Nvidia is considered one of the biggest beneficiaries of ChatGPT’s technology. Already focused on graphics processing units used in video games, video editing, and machine learning, the Silicon Valley company now leads the world in chipmaking for AI and its wide-ranging applications.
Huang, 59, who co-founded chipmaker Nvidia in 1993, has seen his net worth balloon to $18.9 billion, making him the largest gainer among U.S. billionaires so far this year.
