TECH NEWS – The Nvidia CEO says OpenAI’s technology is revolutionary and could be the breakthrough in artificial intelligence that phones have experienced with the advent of the iPhone.
Speaking at Berkeley Haas University, Jensen Huang confirmed that Nvidia and AI are inseparable. Let’s see what the Nvidia boss had to say: “First of all, ChatGPT is a very, very big deal. Just think about it, in just a few days, it has reached tens of millions of people. I think it’s more than 5, probably less than 30, and the fantastic thing is that everyone uses it for different reasons and finds it delightful. That’s its miracle.
When was the last time we saw a piece of technology so versatile that it can solve problems and surprise people in so many ways so often? It can write a poem, of course; 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 verilog, and so you know you can’t do it today, but of course, it will be able to do it someday. So the fact that you have this tool that can do all these different things is astounding to many people worldwide. Many people are working on this, and we have been waiting for this moment. This is the iPhone moment of artificial intelligence. This is the time when all those ideas within mobile computing and all that it all came together in a product that everyone just kind of, I see it.
I can now use it as an API and connect it to a spreadsheet. I connect it to PowerPoint; I connect it to a Drawing program; I connect it to a Photo AI program; it will make everything better. So we now know that this is going to be a monumental impact on technology. And now the question is, how quickly will the technology diffuse? I think the last 60 days tell us that the rate of technology diffusion can be pretty high. For example, since ChatGPT came out, probably some 500 startups have already happened, and not only that, in about two weeks, they could make delightful and valuable applications.
No wonder we wrote the other day that Nvidia’s graphics cards could be bought up in droves by companies…
