The meeting took place at 7 Lok Kalyan Marg, the official house of the Indian Prime Minister in New Delhi, as Modi gets ready to host a meeting of the G20 group of the world’s major countries, including U.S. President Joe Biden, later this week. The occasion, which marks Modi and Huang’s second meeting, highlights NVIDIA’s part in the nation’s quickly expanding technological sector.
“Had an excellent meeting with Mr. Jensen Huang, the CEO of NVIDIA. We talked at length about the rich potential India offers in the world of AI,” Modi said in a Twitter post.
After his meeting with Modi, Huang had a casual dinner with a large group of scholars from renowned institutions of science and technology throughout the world, including the Indian Institute of Science and several campuses of the Indian Institute of Technology.
Some of the brightest minds in a wide range of disciplines, including astronomy, medicine, quantum computing, massive language models, and natural language processing, were among the guests.
The evening’s conversations covered a wide range of subjects, including how to use technology to overcome language barriers, increase agricultural yields, close gaps in healthcare services, restructure digital economies, and take on some of the biggest contemporary scientific problems.
NVIDIA started doing business in 2004 in Bangalore, India, which was almost over two decades ago. There are now more than 3,800 NVIDIANs in India, and there are four engineering development centers in the country, one each in Gurugram, Hyderabad, Pune, and Bangalore.
