Chipmaker Nvidia is significantly expanding its partnership with Taiwan's Foxconn Technology Group to collaborate on the development of a new class of data centers that will drive artificial intelligence (AI) services.
Under this expanded collaboration, Foxconn, also known as Hon Hai Precision Industry, will leverage Nvidia's cutting-edge technology to build data centers that will play a vital role in the digitalization of manufacturing processes. Additionally, together they will explore the application of AI in areas such as electric vehicles and robotics.
According to a joint statement issued by the two companies, Foxconn plans to utilize Nvidia CPUs (central processing units), GPUs (graphics processing units), and networking capabilities to deploy a plethora of systems for its global customer base.
Nvidia's advanced technology will enable Foxconn customers to deliver generative AI services and leverage simulations to expedite the training of autonomous machines. This includes industrial robots and self-driving cars, among other automated systems.
The partnership was officially announced by Nvidia's CEO, Jensen Huang, and Foxconn's counterpart, Young Liu, during the Hon Hai Tech Day event held in Taipei on Wednesday.
Without a doubt, this collaboration between Nvidia and Foxconn holds immense potential for driving innovation and revolutionizing various industries with the power of AI.
