FROM GAMING TO AI COMPUTING

The GPU has proven to be unbelievably effective at solving some of the most complex problems in computer science. It started out as an engine for simulating human imagination, conjuring up the amazing virtual worlds of video games and Hollywood films. Today, NVIDIA’s GPU simulates human intelligence, running deep learning algorithms and acting as the brain of computers, robots, and self-driving cars that can perceive and understand the world.

This is our life’s work — to amplify human imagination and intelligence.

THE NVIDIA GPU DEFINES MODERN COMPUTER GRAPHICS

The GPU made possible real-time programmable shading, which gives artists an infinite palette for expression. We’ve led the field of visual computing since.

GEFORCE GAMING PC — THE WORLD’S
LARGEST GAMING PLATFORM

At $100 billion, computer gaming is the world’s largest entertainment industry. And with 200 million gamers, NVIDIA GeForce is its largest platform. GeForce® GTX GPUs and the GeForce Experience application transform everyday PCs into powerful gaming machines.

THE NVIDIA GPU REVOLUTIONIZES COMPUTING

In 2006, the creation of our CUDA programming model and Tesla GPU platform opened up the parallel-processing capabilities of the GPU to general-purpose computing. A powerful new approach to computing was born. Today, GPU computing is the most pervasive, accessible, energy-efficient path forward for HPC and data centers. It powers the fastest supercomputers in the U.S. and Europe as well as regular breakthroughs in vital areas of scientific research.

GPU DEEP LEARNING IGNITES THE BIG BANG OF AI

Artificial intelligence is the use of computers to simulate human intelligence. Learning from data — a computer’s version of life experience — is how AI evolves. GPU deep learning is a new computing model in which deep neural networks are trained to recognize patterns from massive amounts of data. This new model has set off a string of “superhuman” achievements in image and speech recognition and sparked the era of AI computing.

THE BRAIN OF THE INTELLIGENT
INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION

Every industry has awoken to AI. The world’s leading internet companies are racing to infuse intelligence into every app. More than 1,500 AI startups have cropped up around the world. The $10 trillion transportation industry will be transformed by autonomous vehicles. And AI-powered industrial robots will drive the reinvention of factories and manufacturing. GPU deep learning is at the center of this intelligent industrial revolution. We’re working with the world’s largest enterprise technology providers so every company can tap into the power of AI.

A LEARNING MACHINE

NVIDIA has continuously reinvented itself over two decades.

Our invention of the GPU in 1999 sparked the growth of the PC gaming market, redefined modern computer graphics, and revolutionized parallel computing. More recently, GPU deep learning ignited modern AI — the next era of computing.

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

INSPIRED TO GIVE TO OUR COMMUNITIES

NVIDIA’s people share a strong sense of corporate responsibility. Our philanthropic giving this year totaled $5 million.

Project Inspire, which brings our people together every year to transform local communities, continues to gain momentum. This year alone, employees volunteered more than 17,000 hours and supported education programs that benefited more than 64,000 children.
