Because GPUs do a lot of calculations, really fast, and need hardware fault correction of bit errors to keep their fp operations somewhat precise.

The first few question/answers in that video should clear it up a bit. In a nutshell, nVidia is making a multi-purpose "one size fits all" GPU designed for compute and gaming and you need ECC for compute and data center tasks.
