原创译文 | 英伟达的詹森•黄谈白宫的人工智能倡议

导读:人工智能一直是大家眼中的焦点,今天我们就来看一看英伟达的首席执行官怎么说。(文末更多往期译文推荐)

不是那种你希望在人工智能技术上加速的人。但美国科技公司上周到白宫朝圣,告诉他这很重要。《AI政策峰会》呼吁工业、学术界和政府合作,在人工智能领域与其他国家展开竞争。

人工智能将被用于从自动驾驶汽车到家用机器人的所有领域,它很有可能成为一个民族国家的游戏规则颠覆者。专家们说“将有数万亿美元的机会和挽救生命的重大突破将会被争夺,这些赌注是巨大的。英伟达公布了部分由于人工智能芯片的快速增长而获得的可观收益之后,我与英伟达首席执行官詹森·黄谈到了推动人工智能技术政策的重要性。我们只聊了几分钟,但我觉得他的回答值得一看。“

以下是经过编辑的采访记录。英伟达高管伊恩•巴克也对此次峰会发表了一些看法。

贝亚特:你又赢了一个季度。我很好奇你对人工智能竞争力的想法,今天也出现了关于科技领袖推动白宫的人工智能战略,你对此有何看法?

黄:嗯,你知道,人工智能是软件的未来。软件是自动化的语言。很明显,人工智能将影响每一个行业。我认为每个国家都需要确保人工智能是他们国家战略的一部分。每个国家都会受到影响。他们把精力放在这上面,并认识到人工智能对我们未来的重要性,这真是太棒了。

贝亚特:你觉得帮助政治领导人理解人工智能的重要性有什么挑战吗?

黄:当然,人工智能技术很复杂,但是人工智能的功能和好处并不难理解。它发展的速度可能很难让人们理解,因为我们正在经历两个同时的指数。我们收集的数据量呈指数级增长,这使我们能够更好地编程和编写软件。然后我们有第二个指数,也就是计算和图形处理(GPUs)一起前进的方式。

变化的速度是难以理解的,但归根结底是关于自动化的。我们可以自动化的技术是什么?通过自动化,我们能更好地预测什么?对工业的影响更容易理解。

贝亚特:你觉得中国在政府层面上做的比我们多吗?这是值得担心的吗?

黄:这对我来说很难讲,因为我离他们不是那么近。但很明显,每个国家都必须努力应对人工智能的能力及其对经济和社会的影响这对每个人来说都是重要的。你很清楚人工智能对我们社会的影响和潜在的好处。每个国家都必须尽自己最大的努力去超越它。

Nvidia’s Jensen Huang on the White House’s AI initiative

Donald Trump isn’t the sort of person you’d expect to be up to speed on artificial intelligence technology. But U.S. tech companies made a pilgrimage to the White House last week to tell somebody that it’s important. The summit on AI policy called for a combination of industry, academia, and government collaboration to compete with other nations in AI.

AI will be used in everything from self-driving cars to household robots, and it could very well become a game changer for nation states. The stakes are going to be huge, with experts saying trillions of dollars in opportunities and life-saving breakthroughs will be up for grabs. After Nvidia reported stellar earnings that were in part due to fast growth of AI chips, I spoke with Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang about the importance of pushing a tech policy for AI. We had just a few minutes to talk, but I felt his answers were worth putting on the record.

Here’s an edited transcript of our interview. Nvidia executive Ian Buck also had some things to say about the summit.

GamesBeat: You had a great quarter again. I was curious about your thoughts on this AI competitiveness thing that also popped up today, about tech leaders pushing the White House for an AI strategy. What’s your view on that?

Jensen Huang: Well, as you know, AI is the future of software. Software is the language of automation. It’s very clear that AI is going to impact every industry. I think that every nation needs to make sure that AI is a part of their national strategy. Every country will be impacted. It’s great that they’re putting energy on that and recognizing the importance of AI to our future.

GamesBeat: Do you feel there’s any challenge in helping political leaders understand why it’s important?

Huang: AI as a technology is complex, of course, but the capabilities and benefits of AI aren’t hard to understand. How fast it’s going to develop is probably hard for people to comprehend, because we’re experiencing two simultaneous exponentials. The amount of data we’re collecting is growing exponentially, which allows us to program and write software exponentially better. And then we have a second exponential, which is the way in which computing is advancing with our GPUs.

The rate of change is hard to comprehend, but in the final analysis it’s about automation. What are the technologies we can automate? What can we predict better now through automation? The impact on industry is easier to understand there.

GamesBeat: Do you feel that China is doing a lot more on the government level than we are? Is that something to worry about?

Huang: It’s hard for me to tell, because I’m not that close to them. But it’s clear that every nation will have to try to grapple with the capabilities of AI and its impact on their economy and their society. It’s important for everyone to wrap their heads around it. You know very well the impact and potential benefits of AI for our society. Every nation has to do its best to try to get ahead of that.
