What is Sovereign AI?
Jensen Huang, CEO of one of the world’s top companies, has advocated for the development of ‘Sovereign AI’ across various nations. Sovereign AI goes beyond mere algorithms; it signifies a power shift, empowering nations to shape AI decisions according to their priorities.

Huang’s mission involves helping countries gain control over AI development, ensuring that decisions made by AI systems align with each nation’s values and goals, especially in crucial sectors like healthcare and defense. He believes that AI has the potential to not only transform lives but also reshape the identity of nations.
