The “AI Computing Company” Names Sonu Nayyar to SVP and Chief Information Officer

 

April 14, 2020 — NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA) has appointed Sonu Nayyar to SVP and Chief Information Officer.  Nayyar most recently served as General Manager, Azure Global at Microsoft. Prior to Microsoft, he served as VP, Infrastructure and Enterprise Engineering at LinkedIn and Senior Director, Infrastructure Engineering at Yahoo!.

Nayyar joins a revolutionary company in NVIDIA, often referred to as the “AI Computing Company”.  In 1999, sparked by the growth of the PC gaming market, NVIDIA redefined modern computer graphics, and revolutionized parallel computing. More recently, GPU deep learning ignited modern AI — the next era of computing — with the GPU acting as the brain of computers, robots, and self-driving cars that can perceive and understand the world.

NVIDIA has played a key role in the scientific work to understand and find a vaccine for COVID-19.  When the virus first broke out, researchers started using the world’s fastest computing resources to run their simulations. See more about the role NVIDIA has played below:
