Raymond Teh, global vice president and head of the Asia Pacific region at Nvidia, was invited to deliver a keynote speech on "Nvidia Joins Hands with Baidu to Create an AI Metaverse" at 2021 Baidu Create, its annual AI developer conference on Monday.

And its first Chinese metaverse app Xirang will be open to all users today, and 2021 Baidu Create will also be held in Xirang, which is the first large conference held in a metaverse in China.
