Technology companies from America have become pawns in the Chinese-American trade war. Nonetheless, this situation might be “a blessing in disguise” after all, as several great entrepreneurs adapt to the current business restriction in an extremely remarkable way.

During the recent Mobile World Congress in Los Angeles, the managers of Nvidia, a California-base technology company, announced their brand new platform called the Smart Everything Revolution. This smart platform aims to help companies create next-generation devices. This revelation is a big deal as it showed that the company is diversifying away from China.

In Americ, innovative companies such as Nvidia are considered the country’s precious treasure. As the creator of high-quality and superior graphics processing units, Nvidia’s hardware became an essential element of the early Microsoft’s Xbox, as well as Sony’s Playstation.

Nevertheless, the company’s talented engineers quickly found out that the parallel computing platform developed by the company called CUDA actually has more applications on general computing.

The company’s CEO, Jensen Huan, quickly took advantage of this opportunity. He paired up with other leading technology companies to incorporate GPU-based computing into various industries. Back in 2006, he reached out to the academic circles with application programming interfaces and software devkits. This wise action transformed the company’s hardware into the center of new computing development.

As the company’s GPUs diversify into data centers, research resources, and universities, its sales went through the roof with a staggering $3.5 billion by the of the year in 2011.

Nowadays, GPUs play a crucial role when it comes to AI or artificial intelligence. This hardware is utilized in almost anything from the development of communication networks to robotics, which is obviously an excellent thing from the company.

Currently, however, the Americans and Chinese politicians are regrettably in the middle of a trade conflict. Citing their apprehension over national security, hard-liners in the United States Senate have been urging to blacklist big Chinese companies permanently, including Huawei, the world’s biggest manufacturer of resources for telecommunications.

Hence, the emergence of the company’s adaptive and innovative solution, Smart Everything Revolution, is indeed a great deal. The company’s CEO sees this as an excellent opportunity to create a new computing platform where almost all data will be made. In theory, everything will be connected or smart. This project comprises a bigger idea where tech enthusiasts prefer to call the “internet of things.”

During the congress, the chief executive of a Swedish telecom equipment company, Ericsson, has also collaborated with Nvidia’s CEO on stage. This collaboration will allow the former to incorporate artificial intelligence, 5G networks, the internet of things, which would entice other telecom companies that are attempting to establish new business models.
