Time’s Top 100 Influencers 2021: Nvidia’s Jensen Huang

Artificial Intelligence work lands CEO top spot in the Innovator category

The CEO of graphics giant Nvidia, Jensen Huang, has been included in Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People list for 2021.

The tech exec is the headline figure of the Innovator category and has been featured for the impact that Nvidia has had – and will continue to have – on the tech sector, including innovations like artificial intelligence.

“I am beyond excited about the technologies we’re in the process of inventing and the opportunity to bring it to the world and show it to you guys,” Huang said in a video interview on Time’s website.

In his profile for the list, DeepLearning.AI founder Andrew Ng wrote that Huang overcame a great deal of skepticism when he created Nvidia and has had a huge impact on the tech sector.

“Artificial intelligence is transforming our world. The software that enables computers to do things that once required human perception and judgment depends largely on hardware made possible by Jensen Huang,” Ng said.

“Huang’s gamble paid off largely because he is among the world’s most technically savvy CEOs. He’s also a compassionate steward of his employees and a generous supporter of education in science and technology. With still emerging AI technologies creating an insatiable hunger for more computation, Huang’s team is well-positioned to keep driving technological advances for decades to come.”
