NVIDIA, a world leader in visual computing technologies, is in the process of establishing a research center in Armenia, Deputy Speaker of the Armenian National Assembly Hakob Arshakyan informs.
In 2019, the Armenian delegation led by Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan visited NVIDIA headquarters in the heart of Silicon Valley. The company’s founder and CEO, Jensen Huang, briefed Armenian officials on the future of gaming, visual computing and AI.
“During this meeting, we also discussed possible cooperation with NVIDIA. Today, I am delighted to announce that NVIDIA is coming to Armenia. One of the world’s leading tech giants with revenue $27 billion and more than 20,000 employees worldwide opens the doors of its new office in Yerevan,” Arsahakyan said in a Facebook post.
The site is run by Rev Lebaredian, Vice President of Omniverse and Simulation Technology, who has been with the company for two decades.
NVIDIA’s invention of the GPU in 1999 sparked the growth of the PC gaming market and redefined modern computer graphics, high-performance computing, and artificial intelligence.
The company’s pioneering work in accelerated computing and artificial intelligence is reshaping transportation, healthcare and manufacturing, and fueling the growth of many other industries. In Yerevan, the company is building a full-fledged site for hundreds of engineers, researchers and more.
