I just got an email from NVIDIA touting this year’s GTC event (April 12-16) and have to share this with you, in case you haven’t already heard. The virtual graphics, AI, and HPC event will headline AI pioneers Yoshua Bengio (University of Montreal), Geoffrey Hinton (Google and The University of Toronto), and Yann LeCun (Facebook and New York University) presenting their work and their visions of the future. These three will go down in history as the inventors of the modern era of AI. The three luminaries join hundreds of speakers from companies such as EPIC Games, Zoox, Verizon, Audi, Wells Fargo, Arm, Red Hat, IBM, ILM, and many others.
Jensen will kick off the event, as usual, with the latest news and technology from NVIDIA engineersNVIDIA
One of the things that amaze me every GTC is the breadth of science and industry that come together to share ideas, best practices, and hands-on labs and workshops. From the novice to the best in the business, GTC has something for everyone. In fact, the week-long event offers over 1,300 talks about the data center, AI, networking, graphics, and. autonomous vehicles. The event starts with Jensen’s news-filled keynote on April 12, at 8:30 am Pacific. Registration is free and is not required to view the keynote. And by going virtual for the second year, the event is expected to draw more than 100,000 attendees.
“GTC brings together a massive ecosystem of developers, researchers and corporate leaders who are using AI and accelerated computing to change the world,” said Jensen Huang. “We have our strongest program ever this year, highlighted by Yoshua Bengio, Geoffrey Hinton and Yann LeCun, among 1,300 sessions focused on every aspect of computing and networking. There is no better place to see the future and how you can help shape it.”
And of course, we all expect to see Jensen’s cool black leather jacket and nifty shoes, setting the fashion for High Tech for the coming year. See you there!
