Brilliant Minds. Breakthrough Discoveries: NVIDIA GTC is more than a must-attend AI conference for developers. It’s a global experience that brings together thousands of innovators, researchers, thought leaders, and decision makers. The in-depth sessions at GTC will cover the latest developments in AI and the latest trends that the industry is observing. The exciting and inspiring line up of speakers at the GTC, represents the world’s preeminent AI researchers and pioneers of deep learning, data science, high-performance computing, graphics, and more. Some of the top names that we identified include:
- Dr. Fei-Fei Li – Stanford University, Professor and who amongst her many accomplishments is also the inventor of ImageNet and the ImageNet Challenge, a critical large-scale dataset and benchmarking effort that has contributed to the latest developments in deep learning and AI. In addition to her technical contributions, she is also a national leading voice for advocating diversity in STEM and AI. In her live talk at this GTC, Dr. Li will discuss her research into ‘ambient intelligence’ — smart, sensor-based solutions that augment the awareness and capabilities of human clinicians to close the gaps of patient safety and care.
- Ilya Sutskever – Co-Founder and Chief Scientist at OpenAI will be live at GTC discussing over his session, the history of deep learning, what it can do today, and what the future might hold.
- Dr. Anima Anandkumar – NVIDIA, Director of ML Research and Bren professor at Caltech CMS department and whose research spans both theoretical and practical aspects of machine learning, will be presenting exciting recent advances that build new foundations in AI that are applicable to a wide range of problems, such as fluid dynamics and quantum chemistry.
There are many other luminaries who will be participating live at this GTC, thought leaders like
Michael Kagan – NVIDIA, CTO, Gal Chechik – NVIDIA, Director of AI, Tim Sweeney – Epic Games, CEO & Founder, David Baker – University of Washington, Professor of Biochemistry, Adam Rashid – JBG Smith, SVP, Smart Cities Practice, Alan Bekker – Snap Inc., Head of Conversational AI, Beena Ammanath – Deloitte AI Institute, Executive Director, Paul Newman – Professor & CTO, Oxbotica, Nir Zuk – Palo Alto Networks, Founder & CTO, Vijay Narayanan -ServiceNow, Chief AI Officer, Steve Walker – Lockheed Martin, CTO, Director.
This GTC will feature from India, sessions across
HPC+AI, Digital Twin, Healthcare and Conversational AI including a Panel titled
‘Advancing Scientific Discoveries with AI’ with panelists from top Institutes across the country discussing about the Convergence of HPC and AI and the necessity to develop and teach AI to students of the scientific community.
Tata Consulting Services is presenting on how they worked along with NVIDIA to accelerate
Digital Twin performances across entity modeling and explainability of simulation results.
ARTPARK session will discuss COVID Detection from Chest X-ray images captured using mobile phones and WhatsApp; this is a
Healthcare-focused session that details the solution build-and-deployment architecture that was used to meet the exacting accuracy requirements of COVID-positive identification, and the rapid diagnosis that helped triage potential COIVID-positive cases during the peak of the pandemic in India. The session by
Unacademy will detail a novel approach to achieve better OCR performance and reduce dependency on external APIs to extract text from student-uploaded images. The large user community of
Omniverse in India will have a special
