Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg praised NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang in an Instagram post, comparing him to Taylor Swift. He said Huang is like Swift but in the technology world. 

Zuckerberg shared a photo of him and Huang swapping jackets, similar to what athletes do, to show their friendship. 

Now, this isn't the first instance of Huang being likened to Swift. During Nvidia's GPU Technology Conference, Huang humorously acknowledged such comparisons, referring to Taylor Swift's Eras tour preparations. 

While Huang may not be performing on a treadmill, his contributions to the tech industry have certainly gathered praises and acclaim, as Swift does with her music.

In fact, VCPost reported she recently joined the ranks of the World's Richest with her net over $1.2 billion net worth from music.

Why Mark Zuckerberg thinks Jensen Huang is Taylor Swift of Tech

However, Zuckerberg's admiration for Huang goes beyond mere celebrity fandom. Business Insider reports that it stems from the role Huang and NVIDIA play in Meta's ambitious quest for dominance in artificial intelligence (AI). 

Recently, Zuckerberg purposefully acquired a considerable quantity of NVIDIA chips for the development and implementation of their AI models. For the Meta CEO, the goal is to have over 340,000 Nvidia H100 GPUs by the end of 2024.

As of today, NVIDIA boasts an impressive value, which recently crossed the $2 trillion mark and rivals big players like Amazon and Alphabet. Similar to Meta and the tech giants of today, the company's rapid growth is inevitable-all thanks to the mind of Huang. 

NVIDIA CEO and representatives have not commented on Zuckerberg's praise and remarks.
