Ladies and gentlemen, esteemed faculty members, distinguished guests, proud parents. And above all, the 2023 graduating class of National Taiwan University:
Today is a very special day for you, a dream come true for your parents. You should be moving out soon. It is surely a day of pride and joy. Your parents have made sacrifices to see you on this day. My parents and my brother are also here. Let's show all of our grandparents, many of them are here, our appreciation.
I came to NTU for the first time over a decade ago. Dr. Chang invited me to visit his computational physics lab. As I recall, his son, based in Silicon Valley, learned of Nvidia's CUDA invention and recommended his father utilize it for his quantum physics simulations. When I arrived, he opened the door to show me what he had made. NVIDIA GeForce gaming cards filled the room, plugged into open PC motherboards. Dr. Chang had built a pure homemade supercomputer, the Taiwanese way, out of gaming graphics cards. And he started an early example of Nvidia Journey. And he said to me, "Mr. Huang, because of your work, I can do my life's work in my lifetime." Those words touched me to this day, and perfectly captured our company's purpose. Our company's purpose helps the Einsteins and DaVincis of our time do their life's work. I am so happy to be back at NTU, so happy to be back at your commencement address.
十年前我第一次来台大，陈教授邀请我来看他的物理实验室。我记得他的儿子在硅谷得知了 Nvidia 发明的 CUDA（Compute Unified Device Architecture，统一计算架构）技术，建议陈教授在量子物理模拟使用它。
当我抵达的时候，他秀给我看他创造的东西：整个房间的 Nvidia 游戏显卡，插在开放式电脑的主机板上，金属架上都是散热用的大同电扇。
他以台湾人的方式，用游戏显卡做了一个超级电脑。他在这裡，做了早期Nvidia JOURNEY 示范。他很骄傲，他说：“黄先生，因为你的关係，我可以完成我的事业。”
