By Consultants Review Team Thursday, 28 March 2024

CEO of Meta Mark Zuckerberg recently shared a picture of himself with CEO and founder of Nvidia Jensen Huang. Naturally, it became very popular on the internet.  Zuckerberg and Huang switched coats in the photo, with the CEO of Meta donning Huang's trademark black jacket and the CEO of Nvidia donning a brown one. 

All Zuckerberg wrote as a caption for the image was "Jersey Swap." In less than a day, this shot accumulated over one lakh likes. Melinda Davenport, an executive at Meta, commented on the post, stating, "This is absolutely epic." "Two Legends." When asked if he meant to purchase Nvidia's H100 graphics processing unit (GPU) chip by another Instagram user, Zuckerberg responded that he instead intended to purchase the B100 processors.

"I don't know who that is, but I'm just glad you're having fun," said another person. In response to this critique, Zuckerberg said of Huang, "He's like Taylor Swift, except for technology."  Zuckerberg was making reference to Huang's enormous following of tech, AI, and gaming enthusiasts. There were more than 1,300 likes on this comment.

Since 2013, nearly all of Huang's public appearances have been accompanied with a black jacket, according to Quartz. Huang took part in an Ask-Me-Anything (AMA) session on Reddit in 2016. He identified himself at the start of the Q&A by saying, "I am Jen-Hsun Huang, CEO of NVIDIA." I'm 'the guy in the leather jacket who repeats things three times,' as you might know." 

Huang's visibility in the public has increased significantly in the last several years due to the development of AI-powered technology. It is said that his company, Nvidia, invented the graphics processing unit (GPU) found in gaming PCs. 

These days, GPUs are essential to AI-based deep learning applications, which has given Nvidia more customers and more recognition worldwide. Huang is the 76th richest person in the world and the 17th richest person in the United States, according to Forbes' estimations.
