Foxconn plans to utilize Nvidia's technology to construct data centers for a range of applications, including digital manufacturing, AI-driven robotics and electric vehicle development, and generative AI language services.

The AI factories will be equipped with the newest Nvidia GH200 Grace Hopper superchips, which will enable them to handle massive volumes of data and turn it into artificial intelligence models.

"The creation of intelligence is a new form of manufacturing," Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang stated. "The largest contract electronics manufacturer in the world, Foxconn, has the resources and experience to establish AI factories all over the world. We are thrilled to continue our ten-year collaboration with Foxconn in order to hasten the industrial AI revolution."

It is anticipated that Foxconn would create a sizable number of systems for its clients who wish to establish their own AI factories based on the US company's solutions.
