Despite the hype, nobody is beating Nvidia in AI

#artificialintelligence

You have to wonder whether Nvidia is going to get sick of winning all the time. The company's stock price is up to $178--69% more than this time last year. Nvidia is riding high on its core technology, the graphics processing unit used in the machine-learning that powers the algorithms of Facebook and Google; partnerships with nearly every company keen on building self-driving cars; and freshly announced hardware deals with three of China's biggest internet companies. Investors say this isn't even the top for Nvidia: William Stein at SunTrust Robinson Humphrey predicts Nvidia's revenue from selling server-grade GPUs to internet companies, which doubled last year, will continue to increase 61% annually until 2020. Nvidia will likely see competition in the near future.
