Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang won the annual Lifetime Achievement Accolade by Asian American Engineer
Recently, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang won the annual Distinguished Lifetime Achievement Award by Asian American Engineer, which is an annual event commending outstanding Asian American scientists, engineers, and role models. The event was hosted by the nonprofit Chinese Institute of Engineers/USA, part of the DiscoverE Diversity Council. At the virtual ceremony, the conference praised Jensen Huang for his vision in parallel computing technology and as an innovator who accelerates the realization of artificial intelligence computing.
Later, Jensen Huang also gave an acceptance speech, expressing his gratitude and honor to receive this award, and will share this award with Nvidia colleagues. At the same time, Jensen Huang reviewed his experience of studying, living, and starting a business in the United States, as well as the early birth of NVIDIA and GPU accelerated computing.
“It is strange to accept a lifetime achievement award because I feel like I’m just getting started – and NVIDIA indeed is,” Huang said. “Still, I’m grateful and deeply honored to receive this award, which I share with my colleagues at NVIDIA.”
Huang said that since NVIDIA launched its first chip, the complexity of scenes in computer graphics has increased by about 500 million times. In addition to the graphics field, GPU acceleration has been introduced into high-performance computing and artificial intelligence to solve problems in molecular biology and other fields, which were impossible to solve before.
