“I just got back from GTC and ….”

In four weeks, those will be among the most powerful words in your industry. But you won’t be able to use them if you haven’t been here.

NVIDIA’s GTC 2024 transforms the San Jose Convention Center into a crucible of innovation, learning and community from March 18-21, marking a return to in-person gatherings that can’t be missed.

Tech enthusiasts, industry leaders and innovators from around the world are set to present and explore over 900 sessions and close to 300 exhibits.

They’ll dive into the future of AI, computing and beyond, with contributions from some of the brightest minds at companies such as Amazon, Amgen, Character.AI, Ford Motor Co., Genentech, L’Oréal, Lowe’s, Lucasfilm and Industrial Light & Magic, Mercedes-Benz, Pixar, Siemens, Shutterstock, xAI and many more.

Among the most anticipated events is the Transforming AI Panel, featuring the original architects behind the concept that revolutionized the way we approach AI today: Ashish Vaswani, Noam Shazeer, Niki Parmar, Jakob Uszkoreit, Llion Jones, Aidan N. Gomez, Lukasz Kaiser, and Illia Polosukhin.

All eight authors of “Attention Is All You Need,” the seminal 2017 NeurIPS paper that introduced the trailblazing transformer neural network architecture will appear in person at GTC on a panel hosted by NVIDIA Founder and CEO Jensen Huang.

Located in the vibrant heart of Silicon Valley, GTC stands as a pivotal gathering where the convergence of technology and community shapes the future. This conference offers more than just presentations; it’s a collaborative platform for sharing knowledge and sparking innovation.
