Nvidia Plans to Sell AI Services Directly to Companies, Potentially Competing with its Biggest Customers.
Nvidia has announced its plan to shift its focus towards selling artificial intelligence (AI) services directly to large companies and governments, which could result in a clash with its biggest tech customers.
Nvidia’s decision comes as leading tech companies, such as Google and Microsoft, are designing their own chips to cater to the growing demand for AI data-crunching capabilities, thus reducing their reliance on Nvidia’s chips.
Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang has stated that the company has already started making its AI services available on cloud platforms.
While Nvidia’s services are expected to generate significant revenue, it could put the chipmaker on a collision course with some of its largest customers.
