Nvidia opened a research and development center in Israel last year that currently employs several dozen people. The center is set to recruit 20 new employees in the upcoming year. Most on Nvidia's focus in Israel, however, is on the company's collaboration with around 150 local startups, for which she provides consulting services and occasionally also invests in.
Israel is a force to be reckoned with in the domain of AI, despite its small size, Dally said Thursday in a conference held by Nvidia in Tel Aviv.Other leading multinationals, such as Intel and Amazon, also have AI-focused operations in Israel.
