Robotics and Deep Learning applications were front and center at GTC Japan this week, where 2600 attendees lined up to hear the latest on GPU technologies. The age of AI is here,” said Jen-Hsun Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA. “GPU deep learning ignited this new wave of computing where software learns and machines reason. […]
In this video from GTC 2016 in Taiwan, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang unveils technology that will accelerate the deep learning revolution that is sweeping across industries. “AI computing will let us create machines that can learn and behave as humans do. It’s the reason why we believe this is the beginning of the age of AI.”
Nvidia is expanding its popular GPU Technology Conference to eight cities worldwide. “We’re broadening the reach of GTC with a series of conferences in eight cities across four continents, bringing the latest industry trends to major technology centers around the globe. Beijing, Taipei, Amsterdam, Melbourne, Tokyo, Seoul, Washington, and Mumbai will all host GTCs. Each will showcase technology from NVIDIA and our partners across the fields of deep learning, autonomous driving and virtual reality. Several events in the series will also feature keynote presentations by NVIDIA CEO and co-founder Jen-Hsun Huang.”
“Deep Learning is a new area of Machine Learning research, which has been introduced with the objective of moving Machine Learning closer to one of its original goals: Artificial Intelligence. At the 2015 GPU Technology Conference, you can join the experts who are making groundbreaking improvements in a variety of deep learning applications, including image classification, video analytics, speech recognition, and natural language processing.”
This week the OpenPOWER Foundation announced their lineup of speakers for the inaugural OpenPOWER Summit at the GPU Technology Conference in San Jose, March 17-19.
The upcoming GPU Technology Conference is entering it’s fifth year with developer talks on everything from Numerical Algorithms to Big Data Analytics. “In short, we’ll have a ton of HPC content. There are nearly 100 sessions dedicated to supercomputing and HPC topics. This includes major scientific research enabled by these GPU-accelerate systems – everything from breakthroughs in cancer research and astronomy, to HIV research and new big data analytics innovation.”
Fans of accelerated computing are reminded to take advantage of the Early Bird deadline for 2014 GPU Tech Conference ends January 29.
