    Nvidia is crowned the smartest company in the world right now (NVIDIA)
    [​IMG]
    Nvidia was crowned the smartest company in the world by MIT.
    The graphic processing unit (GPU) manufacturer was announced as the smartest among all public and private companies by MIT because of its business savvy and innovative technologies.

    The list, produced by MIT, listed other companies like SpaceX and Amazon at the top of the list, but neither could match the prowess of Nvidia.

    "The list is our best guess as to which firms will be the dominant companies of the future. Amazon and Facebook and Google are on it, but so are plenty of newcomers," David Rotman wrote about the list.

    The main advantage Nvidia has over its competition comes from the explosive growth in artificial intelligence.

    As giant companies like Google and Apple try to develop their AI technologies, they often need huge data centers to speed along their research. Nvidia profits from this because these companies use its data-center and GPU chips when building and upgrading these centers. MIT says the company spent $3 billion to develop its new data-center chip, a bet that has paid off for the company. The company's chips are used by every major player in the AI game, according to Nvidia.

    Self-driving cars have been dominating the news recently. Many of the same names working on AI technology are also working on self-driving cars. Nvidia has partnered with a slate of car manufacturers to use the company's autonomous-driving chipset.

    Though not mentioned by MIT, the exciting field of cryptocurrencies could be another big business for Nvidia. The company is rumored to be producing a cryptocurrency mining-specific chip that could help it capitalize on the hype around currencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum.

    All these areas have no doubt contributed to the companies impressive rise. Nvidia shares are up 37.51% this year. The company is also no stranger to MIT's smartest companies list, as it made an appearance in 2015 and 2016 as well.

    Smartest but least commercially ethical.

    That mining chip has me interested, if it takes off that will be a lot of cash for them.

    I really feel like in both cases what they are doing is more "We're on top" laziness. You'll see that stuff going away when they've got AMD breathing down both their necks.

    Not too surprisingly sadly they like intel have the best tech in their segments and the runner-up competes with both in all segments

    I think AMD's new GPUs will solidify that into a good system where they dominate the lower end and offer a good price compromise on the high end. Last RX run didn't really accomplish that for me.

    If nvidia is so smart then why can't it create 2 non-problematic graphics driver sets in a row?

    They seem to be putting a lot more resources towards dev than support. Another place AMD can move into a good position in the market if they play their cards right.
