榮譽事蹟

Jen-Hsun Huang founded NVIDIA in 1993 and has served since then as president, chief executive officer, and a member of the board of directors.

Starting out in PC graphics, NVIDIA helped build the gaming market into the largest entertainment industry in the world today. NVIDIA’s invention of the GPU in 1999 made possible real-time programmable shading, which defines modern computer graphics, and later revolutionized parallel computing.

More recently, GPU computing ignited artificial intelligence — the next era of computing — with the GPU acting as the brain of computers, robots, and self-driving cars that can perceive and understand the world.

Huang is a recipient of the Dr. Morris Chang Exemplary Leadership Award from the Global Semiconductor Association in recognition of his exceptional contributions to driving the development, innovation, growth, and long-term opportunities of the fabless semiconductor industry.

Huang has received the Daniel J. Epstein Engineering Management Award from the University of Southern California, and the EB Lemon Distinguished Alumni Award and an honorary doctorate from Oregon State University. He was also named to the U.S. Immigrant Entrepreneur Hall of Fame when it was established in 2012.

Harvard Business Review has recently ranked Huang as one of the world’s 100 best-performing CEOs and No. 1 in the U.S. over the lifetime of their tenure. He also has consistently been among the highest rated CEOs on Glassdoor, as chosen by employees at companies worldwide.

NVIDIA has been recognized as one of America’s best places to work by such publications as Fortune, Forbes, and People. It has also been named one of the world’s most innovative companies by Fast Company and recognized as one of the country’s leading corporate citizens by Bloomberg and Forbes.

Huang holds a bachelor of science in electrical engineering from Oregon State University and a master of science in electrical engineering from Stanford University.

NVIDIA OVERVIEW

NVIDIA, one of the world’s great technology companies, has continuously reinvented itself over two decades.

Starting out in PC graphics, it helped build the gaming market into the largest entertainment industry in the world. NVIDIA’s invention of the GPU in 1999 made possible real-time programmable shading, which defines modern computer graphics, and later revolutionized parallel computing. In 2012, GPU computing ignited the big bang of modern AI. Today, the GPU acts as the brain of computers, robots, and self-driving cars that can perceive and understand the world.

NVIDIA is a “learning machine” that constantly evolves by adapting to new opportunities that are hard to solve, that only it can tackle, and that matter to the world.
