What does the future of #Technology mean for us?
The energy at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center is palpable as I see tech enthusiasts from across the world gather and participate in the GPU Technology Conference (GTC) hosted by NVIDIA.
In fact, the first day felt day like the teaser trailer of a Star Wars movie being released for the first time! The excitement was running high and expectations soaring even higher as the largest and most important event of the year for GPU developers got underway. The GTC is all about current and future technologies that will gradually but powerfully transform the world around us. It’s a must-attend event for developers, data scientists and anyone working in the domains of artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), analytics, robotics, Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, life sciences and more.
2017 has been rightly termed as the year of Artificial Intelligence. It is one of the most potent forces that will drive the fourth industrial revolution, and is also one of the key focus areas at this year’s GTC. Honestly, it’s so fascinating to see some of the disruptive innovations that a few early stage companies and startups here are presenting. The event promises to showcase the most amazing work happening in the computer industry today, including fields like deep learning and AI, big data analytics, self-driving cars and more.
Some of these breakthroughs in deep learning will be game changers with the potential to touch and change our lives in many ways.
