What Happened: Speaking during the World Governments Summit in Dubai, Huang stressed the importance of countries owning the intelligence they “generate” using their data and human efforts.
Describing it as “Sovereign AI,” Huang explained that “it codifies your culture, your society’s intelligence, your common sense, your history – you own your own data.”
“You cannot allow that to be done by other people.”
Huang-led Nvidia is at the center of the AI revolution, and that has led to a 50% surge in its stock since the beginning of 2024 alone – Nvidia’s shares have surged from $482 at the beginning of the year to $722 as of markets close on Monday.
The secret behind this could be the ubiquity of Nvidia’s chips.
“Nvidia GPU is the only platform that’s available to everybody on any platform. It has not only democratized AI but facilitated a wave of innovation that spans from cloud computing to autonomous systems and beyond,” Huang said.
“Everybody in the world is now a programmer — that is the miracle.”
Doubling ‘Accelerated’ Data Centers Around The World
Data centers have helped power the rise of AI development, and Huang believes this will only speed up going forward.
Huang predicted that the number of data centers worldwide will rapidly surge in the next four to five years.
Huang believes the installed base of data centers will double to $2 trillion from the existing $1 trillion over the course of the next four to five years.
“All of these data centers will be ‘accelerated’. This architecture for ‘Accelerated Computing’ is ideal for this next-generation of software called Generative AI, so that’s really at the core of what’s happening.”
“One of the greatest contributions we made was advancing computing and AI by 1 million times in the last 10 years.”
