This week we’ll be closing out the GPU Technology Conference Live Chat series with a bang, as we host NVIDIA’s chief scientist, Bill Dally, and Director of Graphics Research, David Luebke. You can set a reminder for yourself using the widget below, or visit on Wednesday September 1st, at 11:30am PDT.

We started the series with the hopes of giving you a chance to engage ‘one-on-one’ with some of the thinkers and personalities attending the GPU Technology Conference prior to the show. While we expected good audience questions, we were pleasantly surprised by the sheer volume and quality of the feedback you’ve given during each of the chats. In fact, for each chat we’ve published a follow-up blog post to answer questions that we didn’t have a chance to address during the live chat. You can see our chat with Software Director of GPU Computing Ian Buck, here, and NVIDIA Fellow, David Kirk, here.

During Wednesday’s chat, Bill will be available to talk about the death of Moore’s law. Back in April, he wrote an article for Forbes entitled Life After Moore’s Law discussing his thoughts on the topic. You can also chat with Bill about the future of parallel computing and GPU architecture, and he may even give you some hints as to what’s brewing in the  NVIDIA Research department.

David will be chatting about “computational graphics” research at NVIDIA, including topics such as GPU ray tracing, image-space photon mapping for real-time indirect illumination and stochastic rasterization for transparency, motion blur, and depth of field effects.

We’re looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday, and if you can’t make the chat, leave your questions for Bill and David in the comments below and we’ll be sure to ask them on your behalf.
