Nvidia CEO claims he intends to prioritize Japan for Artificial Intelligence processors

On Monday, Jensen Huang announced that his company would do everything possible to market artificial intelligence processors in Japan.

Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang stated on Monday that his business would do everything in its power to sell artificial intelligence processors to Japan, despite extraordinarily strong market demand.

Japan is hurrying to rebuild its once-world-leading semiconductor infrastructure and catch up on AI technology development. Nvidia’s graphics processing units (GPUs) dominate the artificial intelligence (AI) sector.

“Demand is very high,” Huang said at Prime Minister Fumio Kishida’s official house in Tokyo. “But I promised the prime minister that we would do our very best to prioritize Japan’s requirements for artificial intelligence processors.”

Huang’s visit comes less than two weeks after Japan approved an additional budget that contained almost 2 trillion yen ($13.60 billion) for chip investment.

Some of the money is expected to be used to boost Taiwanese chipmaker TSMC and Rapidus, a chip foundry company aiming to create cutting-edge chips on Japan’s northern island of Hokkaido.

“The semiconductor industry that Japan is now starting to grow and foster will be able to produce artificial intelligence processors,” Huang said.

“Countries like Japan are realizing that you need to own your own data, build your own AI factories, and produce your own AI intelligence,” he went on to say.
