The innovative creation of graphics processing units (GPUs) and all the parallel technological advances that have accompanied them have spawned a new era that has allowed technology to become the ubiquitous entity without which we can no longer live. From video games to space exploration, our lives wouldn’t be the same without the creation of GPUs. Nvidia is one of the organizations responsible for adapting the GPU to all aspects of digital life as we know it today. As one of the most adaptable and holistic CEOs in the world, Huang understood the impact potential of GPUs early on and used technology to help deliver crucial advancements across industries. While advancements in areas such as space exploration and healthcare cannot be directly attributed to Huang, the technology deployed by Nvidia has facilitated many of these achievements.
