The CEO of Nvidia baptized the Taylor Swift of technology

Nowadays, wherever Jensen Huang goes, adoring crowds chant his name and fight for selfies and autographs.
Nvidia’s CEO has nothing short of rock star status, and during a visit to Taiwan this week, he was on display. He posed for countless photographs and even scribbled his name on one woman’s blouse, just below her cleavage. She was pure “Jensanity” as the locals say.
His peers know the kind of fan frenzy Mr. Huang can provoke. Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg described it as “like Taylor Swift, but for technology.”

Huang is at the forefront of a technology boom, as Nvidia is the world’s leading designer of artificial intelligence (AI) chips.
Earlier this week, Nvidia’s market value surpassed $3 billion (£2.3 billion). With that, the company surpassed Apple as the world’s second most valuable company on Wednesday, before falling back on Thursday.
Nvidia stock has also risen more than 200% over the past year.
“They literally treat him like a rock star,” says technology analyst Bob O’Donnell.
“Nvidia’s last big conference in San Jose was in a stadium. It was crowded and large lines of people couldn’t get in. It was like a rock concert,” O’Donnell said.
“This time he spoke at a sports stadium in Taiwan. “I joked that he was on his stadium tour.”

California-based Nvidia was originally known for making the type of chips that process graphics, particularly for computer games.
Huang co-founded the company in 1993. Over time, the company shifted its focus toward AI, which it currently dominates.
Interest in AI peaked after the launch of ChatGPT in 2022, made possible by Nvidia chips.
The chatbot was trained using 10,000 Nvidia graphics processing units (GPUs), packed into a supercomputer.
This success helped propel Nvidia into the elite club of American companies worth at least $1 trillion last May, joining the likes of Apple, Amazon, Alphabet and Microsoft.
Although Microsoft remains the most valuable publicly traded company in the world, Nvidia is not far behind.
In Asia, its success has boosted Taiwanese chip-making giant TSMC, the sole production partner for Nvidia’s most advanced AI chips. TSMC shares hit a record high on the Taiwan Stock Exchange on Thursday.
