Jensen Huang, the Taiwanese-American technology tycoon and founder of Nvidia, has been seen getting accustomed to Taipei before the major trade fair Computex. Away from his now sedentary family life in San Francisco's Billionaire's Row neighborhood, he was soaking up the sights, sounds (and smells?) of one of Taipei's many night markets. Huang lived in Taiwan until he was nine years old, when his family moved to Portland, Oregon.

In the embedded tweet above, you can see that Huang was photographed contemplating dried fruit at a night market. CW Lin, who took the picture, reflected on the sight of the CEO walking around such a humble market, with a bag in hand.
Earlier this week, we reported on Nvidia's extraordinary inventory spike. Investor speculation on the fortunes of AI technology companies has driven this explosive growth in valuations, and Nvidia is a staple of this industry. With 3.51% of the company's shares (over 86 million shares), Huang's net worth has grown from just over $26 billion fifteen days ago to over $34 billion today.
CW Lin's image of Huang does not seem to show evidence of a security detail with the Nvidia CEO. However, Nvidia's latest financial statements show that the CEO's security expenses increased over 750% last year, totaling $700,000. Is there no need for security personnel in Taipei, or are they so good that we don't even know they're there?
The last time we saw Huang on the streets of Taipei was in November of last year, when he was caught "video-bombing" startled karaoke singers and requesting a Lady Gaga song. He was in town for WirForce 2022's eSports Carnival.
On Monday, the Nvidia CEO will take the stage at Computex 2023 to deliver a special keynote address. As a PC-focused consumer program, we expect to hear exciting details about new and upcoming GeForce hardware and software technologies. However, it was clear from the latest set of financial data that gaming now accounts for about half of the revenue generated by data centers.
