Bringing together pioneers in robotics and AI, NVIDIA GTC will be a state-of-the-art showcase of applied AI for autonomous machines.

The conference, running March 18-21 at the San Jose Convention Center and online, boasts a star-studded lineup. This includes a fireside chat with Marc Raibert, executive director of The AI Institute, and Dieter Fox, senior director of robotics research at NVIDIA, as well as panels featuring heavyweights like Disney, Google DeepMind and Amazon, alongside insights from NVIDIA stalwarts like Senior Research Scientist Jim Fan.

With over 77 ecosystem partners and more than 25 partner robots, from industrial giants to entertainment bots, GTC is where the future of robotics unfolds.

Attendees will be able to explore the convergence of AI and robotics through dynamic displays in the AI at the Edge pavilion, the Metropolis pavilion, the Healthcare and Life Sciences pavilion and demo areas, featuring the latest robot arms, robotic vision systems and high-accuracy 3D scanning systems. They can also explore the Industrial Digitalization pavilion to dive deeper into robotics within the industrial sector, seeing how industry leaders use digital technologies to enable new levels of innovation, automation and efficiency across industrial workflows.

These demonstrations provide compelling examples of how AI seamlessly enhances human capabilities across diverse industries. Groundbreaking demos using large language models for real-world applications will push the boundaries of human-machine interaction.

Here are a few of the conference’s must-see robotics events:

Plus, a special session with Deepu Talla, vice president of robotics and edge computing at NVIDIA, about “AI Robotics: Driving Innovation for the Future of Automation” was just added to the GTC catalog.

This year’s GTC also offers 40 hands-on labs, providing attendees with an immersive experience of the practical applications of these technologies.

A Jetson and Robotics Developer Day will be held on Thursday, March 21, featuring a full day of sessions and panels that dive deep into building next-gen AI-powered robotics and edge applications on the NVIDIA Jetson, Isaac and Metropolis platforms.

Over the past decade, GTC has been where advances in computer graphics, deep learning and generative AI were launched. As industries from agriculture to manufacturing are transformed by these technologies, this year’s event will offer a glimpse into the innovations that will soon define our daily lives.

Register for GTC to secure your spot at the forefront of technology’s next leap.
