NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang Given Lifetime Achievement Award by Asian American Engineer of the Year


NVIDIA co-founder and CEO Jensen Huang has been given this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award by Asian American Engineer of the Year. The award, which was previously given to other notable individuals such as TSMC founder Morris Chang, was in recognition of his contributions as “a visionary and innovator in parallel computing technology that accelerates the realization of AI computing.” Jensen spoke about how grateful he was for the honor. He also shared that NVIDIA is just getting started and how the achievement will be shared with his colleagues at NVIDIA.

“I was fortunate to have had a front-row seat at the creation of the computer industry,” Huang said, reflecting on the early days of NVIDIA and the birth of GPU-accelerated computing. “We dreamed of solving grand computing challenges and even imagined that we would be a major computing company one day.”

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
