NVIDIA CEO is on the list of the 100 most influential people in the world

Elon Musk (Tesla), Tim Cook (Apple) and Brazilian Luiza Trajano, from Magalu, are also on the list.

A Time magazine published his famous list of 100 most influential people in the world. In the field of technology, we have the highlights for Jensen Huang (CEO of Nvidia), Elon Musk (Tesla) e Tim Cook (Apple). In the business field, Brazilian Luiza Trajano, from Magalu and indirectly also from Kabum, appears in the category of Titans for his social work and prominence in the business world in Brazil.

Published since 1999, the process of choosing the final list of Time is done by the magazine’s editors. Those chosen are previously indicated with a text from those who have already been included in previous lists.

Jensen Huang was nominated in the category of Innovators by Andrew Ng, founder of Coursera e da deeplearning.ia. According to Ng, the hardwares developed by Nvidia it plays a huge role in the evolution of artificial intelligence which, in turn, is transforming the world. The creation of GPUs adapted for data processing allowed neural networks, part of artificial intelligence, to become more powerful. Ng says the experience of Huang and his passion for education in science and technology was what paid “bet” to take the GPUs for this new branch.

Still in the technology field, Elon Musk and the performance of SpaceX are listed as one of the reasons the South African deserved to be on the list for the fourth time. His nomination also cites his optimism in solving humanity’s greatest challenges. Tim Cook gives Apple also appears in the list for the fourth time. Phil Knight, founder of Nike, highlighted the fact that Cook have taken the difficult position of CEO of the Apple after the death of Steve Jobs, one of the most charismatic figures in the company. Knight says that Cook he knew how to deal with the pressure and expectations about the future of the company in a dignified and graceful manner, remembering that it has been 10 years of leadership and the actions of the Apple rose 1,000% in that period.

The woman we will cite in this article could be, in my opinion, Lisa Su. It would make sense for the evolution and growth of the AMD in the last years. But I wasn’t nominated for the Time (Still… Refers me to Naomi Osaka).

But equally fair is the entrance to the Luiza Trajano on the list. Whoever nominated her will be controversial (former President Lula), but anyone who follows the economy — or did a work on family management at the Business School — knows the role the businesswoman played in transforming a family business into one of the largest retail chains in the country. country and one of the most profitable companies in the world for shareholders. It was even one of those listed for a possible third way in 2022.

In the nomination text, Lula cites Trajano’s role in helping small businessmen during the pandemic by providing the use of an e-commerce platform, the Mulheres do Brasil group and the inclusion program for black people.

In July, the Luiza stores bought electronics retailer Kaboom! for 3.5 billion reais, being the 22nd purchase of the group in 18 months. The purchase had a big impact at the end of the Videocast below.
