A TITAN for a Titan

Everyone has heroes. Baidu Chief Scientist Andrew Ng, one of the pioneers of deep learning, is one of NVIDIA’s.

NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang chose to light up a meetup of deep learning experts on a glorious mid-summer evening at Stanford University to unveil NVIDIA TITAN X, their latest top-end GPU, by presenting Ng with the first TITAN X. An inscription on the card described Ng as “a pioneer, an amazing scientist, and a hero to us all.”

GPUs — along with the torrents of data unleashed by the Internet — have played a key role in the deep learning boom led by researchers like Ng that is shaking the world to its foundations.
