Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang has called on every country to have its own artificial intelligence (AI) infrastructure, saying that it is essential for economic development and cultural preservation. Huang made the remarks at the World Government Summit in Dubai on Monday, where he also defended AI as a safe and beneficial technology. Huang, whose company is the leader in the market for high-end AI chips, said that Nvidia is democratizing access to AI by making it faster and cheaper.
Why Countries Need Their Own AI Infrastructure
Huang said that every country needs to have its own AI infrastructure, which consists of data centers, networks, software, and hardware, in order to take advantage of the economic potential of AI, while protecting its own culture and values. He said that AI is the most powerful technology of our time, and that it can transform every industry and sector, from health care and education, to agriculture and entertainment.
“You cannot allow that to be done by other people,” Huang said. “You have to do it yourself. You have to build your own AI infrastructure, and you have to build it as fast as you can.”
Huang said that building AI infrastructure is not only a matter of competitiveness, but also of sovereignty and security. He said that AI can help countries preserve their languages, histories, and traditions, as well as protect their borders and interests. He said that AI can also help countries address global challenges, such as climate change, poverty, and pandemics.
“The world is changing very fast, and AI is the catalyst of that change,” Huang said. “Every country has to be part of that change, and every country has to shape that change.”
How Nvidia Is Democratizing Access to AI
Huang said that Nvidia is democratizing access to AI by making it more accessible and affordable for everyone. He said that Nvidia’s AI chips, which are used by companies like Google, Amazon, and Tesla, are the most powerful and efficient in the world, and that they can process massive amounts of data and perform complex calculations in seconds.
Huang said that Nvidia is also making AI more efficient and cheaper by improving its AI computing performance by 10 times every year, compared to the traditional Moore’s Law, which doubles the performance every two years. He said that this means that AI can be deployed on smaller and cheaper devices, such as smartphones, cameras, and drones, as well as on larger and more expensive devices, such as supercomputers and satellites.
“The rest of it is really up to you to take initiative, activate your industry, build the infrastructure, as fast as you can,” Huang said.
How Nvidia Is Addressing the Fears and Risks of AI
Huang said that he is aware of the fears and risks that some people have about AI, such as its impact on jobs, privacy, and democracy. He said that he respects those concerns, but he also believes that AI is a safe and beneficial technology, and that it can be regulated and controlled by humans.
“There are some interests to scare people about this new technology, to mystify this technology, to encourage other people to not do anything about that technology and rely on them to do it. And I think that’s a mistake,” Huang said.
Huang said that AI is not a new or mysterious technology, but rather a natural extension of human intelligence and creativity. He said that AI is not a threat to humans, but rather a tool that can augment and empower humans. He said that AI can help humans solve problems, discover new knowledge, and create new value.
Huang also said that AI can be regulated and governed by humans, just like any other technology or industry. He said that there are already laws and standards that regulate AI, such as safety, quality, and ethics. He said that Nvidia is committed to following and supporting those laws and standards, and to working with governments and organizations to ensure that AI is used for good and not for evil.
“We have to be responsible for the technology that we create, and we have to be accountable for the technology that we use,” Huang said.
Nvidia’s Future Plans and Prospects
Huang said that Nvidia is optimistic and excited about the future of AI, and that it has a lot of plans and prospects to grow and innovate in the AI industry and beyond. He said that Nvidia is not only a chip maker, but also a platform provider, a software developer, and a metaverse creator.
Huang said that Nvidia is developing and offering various platforms and services for AI, such as cloud computing, edge computing, and data analytics. He said that Nvidia is also developing and offering various software and applications for AI, such as gaming, simulation, and virtual reality. He said that Nvidia is also creating and enabling a metaverse, which is a digital world where people can interact and create in immersive and realistic ways.
Huang said that Nvidia is also expanding and diversifying its business and products, beyond AI and beyond chips. He said that Nvidia is also involved in other areas, such as graphics, robotics, health care, and automotive. He said that Nvidia is also exploring new areas, such as quantum computing, biotechnology, and nanotechnology.
Huang said that Nvidia is confident and ambitious about its mission and vision, and that it is ready and prepared to face the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
“Nvidia is a company that is driven by a vision of the future, and a passion for making that future happen,” Huang said. “We are a company that is always looking forward, always innovating, always learning, and always improving.”
