It was a little over a month ago when we were preparing our travel for NVIDIA’s GPU Technology Conference, and to say that a lot has transpired since would be a great understatement. Many have felt that their lives have been turned upside-down, and with self-isolation, the situation can become tedious really quickly. Fortunately, humans are extremely adaptable, and for some, the “show must go on”.
In NVIDIA’s case, the company didn’t want to cancel its flagship event because much of what’s discussed there is more timely than ever. The company has regularly talked about using computer hardware to fight disease, and as that hardware grows ever-more powerful, successes will continue to become closer.
While NVIDIA decided against a keynote, since this isn’t really the best market to launch new hardware or product in, the company enlisted a “small army” of researchers and partners to generate a whole lot of content to post online. The vast majority of this will be completely free to access, with the exception being training sessions that carry a nominal fee. If you were already registered for GTC, your account will have already been converted over for access to GTC Digital.
Here’s NVIDIA’s planned live content:
Live Webinars: Seventeen 1-hour sessions, from March 24-April 8, on various topics, including data science, conversational AI, edge computing, deep learning, IVA, autonomous machines and more. Live webinars will be converted to on-demand content and posted within 48 hours. Free.
Connect with Experts: Thirty-eight 1-hour sessions, from March 25-April 10, where participants can chat one-on-one with NVIDIA experts to get answers in a virtual classroom. Topics include conversational AI, recommender systems, deep learning training and autonomous vehicle development. Free.
There will also be plenty of prerecorded content to peruse, along with tech demos and AI podcast content. A mainstay of NVIDIA’s GTC is the hallway dominated by research posters, and fortunately, all of what would have been seen there this year will be available for browsing online.
