Come to the Epicenter of AI, VR, Self-Driving Cars — GTC Registration Now Open

by Angad Chera

The tech industry has been ignited by three game-changing developments: The resurgence of artificial intelligence based on machine learning. The revolutionary experience of virtual reality. And the promise of cars that drive themselves.

Three massive developments, one common denominator. NVIDIA GPU-based platforms are the driving force behind these mega-trends.

The GPU Technology Conference is the annual gathering of GPU developers and those who want to witness their groundbreaking work first-hand. If you want to be a part of this electrifying moment, then register yourself now for GTC 2016.

Four thousand people came together to talk GPU-powered computing for four days at GTC last March. That’s because the conference is the epicenter for the world’s top GPU developers to share their cutting-edge work.

Here are a few reasons you should be first in line for GTC 2016 passes:

  • Breakthrough keynotes and speakers: Past speakers have included industry leaders such as Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk, Baidu Chief Scientist Andrew Ng, Google Senior Fellow Jeff Dean and, from Pixar, Technical Director Jean Daniel Nahmias and Senior Software Engineer Dirk Van Gelder.
  • 500+ sessions and 30+ hands-on labs: Choose from sessions and hands-on labs led by developers, researchers and engineers on the latest breakthroughs in visual and accelerated computing.
  • Opportunities to connect: Whether you’re most comfortable talking at a casual hangout, over a meal or in sessions with other subject-matter experts, or with a drink in your hand freshly poured from an ice luge, GTC is filled with chances to network with GPU experts.
  • Emerging Companies Summit: This startup-geared, day-long event connects young companies with potential customers, partners and investors — and gives the audience insight into what’s next in tech. We’ll hand over a $100,000 check, on the spot, to one game-changing startup in our Early Stage Challenge. Oculus, acquired by Facebook for $2 billion, and Elemental Technologies, acquired by Amazon for a reported $300 million, are among many notable ECS alums.

The seventh annual GTC takes place April 4-7 at the San Jose Convention Center in Silicon Valley. Registration is open now. We’ll see you there.
