One of the silver linings of the pandemic is the movement of many events online, and the access that provides to people around the world. NVIDIA’s upcoming GPU Technology Conference seems likely to be a perfect example.
Every year, NVIDIA puts on a world-class conference that is a mix of academic and industry presentations. This year, the conference is open to the world, streaming live, starting on April 12.
The speaker list includes academic luminaries, such as Geoffrey Hinton, Daphne Kohler, Raquel Urtusan, Yann LeCun, and Bryan Catanzaro, alongside industry leaders like Jesse Levinson, Drew Bagnell, and Chris Wright.
The Autonomous Vehicles track alone includes:
- Cruise (!!)
There’s a lot to learn!
I wonder how attendance and engagement at a virtual GTC compare to the multiple in-person GTCs NVIDIA used to hold worldwide. Presumably there is the potential to reach a lot more people, and for many students and practitioners to benefit from that.
