Google is Nvidia's BFF

At least for another decade 

Google CEO Sundar Pichai has said his company's longstanding relationship with chipmaker Nvidia isn't going to change any time soon.

In an interview Wired, the Google CEO said the company worked "deeply" with Nvidia on Android and other initiatives for over a decade, adding that Nvidia has a "strong track record" with AI innovation.

"The semiconductor industry is a very dynamic, cooperative industry. It's an industry that needs deep, long-term R&D and investments. I feel comfortable about our relationship with Nvidia and that we are going to be working closely with them 10 years from now," Pichai said.

In August, the two companies announced a partnership that will give Google’s cloud customers greater access to technology powered by Nvidia’s H100 GPUs.

Nvidia’s business has been booming because its powerful graphics processing units, or GPUs, are being sought after by cloud companies, government agencies and startups to train and deploy generative AI models like the technology underpinning OpenAI’s ChatGPT.

Google has been jostling with the likes of OpenAI and Microsoft to be at the forefront of AI innovation, and it has introduced a number of AI solutions, like its chatbot Bard, across its business units.

In the interview with Wired, Pichai described AI as “one of the most profound technologies we will ever work on.”
