Nvidia to Put Primary Focus on VR and AI at GTC 2016
Nvidia’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang will deliver a keynote at the next month’s GPU Technology Conference (GTC). The Santa Clara, Calif., based chipmaker will reportedly put a primary focus on hot topics including augmented/virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and other “leading-edge technologies” at the conference.
There will be thirty presentations and 4 tutorials, and that’s alone on the AR/VR topic, while the technology company is set to play host to what seems to be over 100 presentations and tutorials on the Artificial Intelligence Track.
Other technologies that could be covered in NVIDIA’s conference include self-driving cars, machine vision, gaming, graphics virtualization, supercomputing, and more.
While that may seem pretty compulsive, you should also expect to get a huge dose of IBM Watson information from Chief Technology Officer Rob High who will deliver his presentation on Wednesday, April 6.
“The capabilities brought to Watson from GPUs are key to understanding the vast sums of data people create every day – a problem that High and his team at IBM set out to solve with Watson,” NVIDIA said in a recent blog post. “Our annual GPU Technology Conference is one of the best places to learn more about Watson and other leading-edge technologies.”
The GTC 2016 kick-starts on April 4 to April 7 at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, California.
