The 2021 Online Conference will feature Jensen Huang Keynote and 1,300 Talks from Leaders in Data Center, Networking, Graphics and Autonomous Vehicles. 

NVIDIA announced that its CEO and founder Jensen Huang will host renowned AI pioneers Yoshua Bengio, Geoffrey Hinton and Yann LeCun at the company’s upcoming technology conference, GTC21, running April 12-16. The event will kick off with a news-filled live-streamed keynote by Huang today at 8:30 am Pacific.

Bengio, Hinton and LeCun won the 2018 ACM Turing Award, known as the Nobel Prize of computing, for breakthroughs that enabled the deep learning revolution. Their work underpins the proliferation of AI technologies now being adopted around the world, from natural language processing to autonomous machines.

More than 100,000 developers, business leaders, creatives and others are expected to register for GTC.

In addition to the three Turing winners, major speakers include:

  • Girish Bablani, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Azure
  • John Bowman, Director of Data Science, Walmart
  • Soumith Chintala, Research Engineer, Facebook
  • Danielle Merfeld, Vice President and CTO, GE Renewable Energy
  • Abhay Parasnis, CTO and Chief Product Officer, Document Cloud, Adobe

Leaders from hundreds of other organizations will also present, including Alibaba, Amazon, Bayer, Citibank, Google, Grubhub, Harvard Medical School, Hyundai Motor Group, IBM, LinkedIn, Volkswagen AG, Audi AG and more.

The CEO and founder of NVIDIA Jensen Huang said:

“GTC brings together a massive ecosystem of developers, researchers and corporate leaders who are using AI and accelerated computing to change the world. We have our strongest program ever this year, highlighted by Yoshua Bengio, Geoffrey Hinton and Yann LeCun, among 1,300 sessions focused on every aspect of computing and networking. There is no better place to see the future and how you can help shape it.”

GTC is unique in supporting the most advanced research in the fields of AI, data science, high-performance computing, graphics, computing, and autonomous machines. In recent years, the event has increasingly focused on cloud and enterprise computing, where AI breakthroughs are often deployed.

Attendees will have several ways to engage with presenters and other participants. Connect with Experts sessions allow participants to sign up for specific topics and have their questions answered by NVIDIA experts. Dinner with Strangers brings attendees together in casual, moderated small-group conversations focused on various topics.

Developers will have an opportunity to acquire new skills with training from NVIDIA’s Deep Learning Institute. DLI courses provide powerful learning experiences through in-depth training, hands-on exercises and access to NVIDIA development platforms.

GTC provides underrepresented communities access to content and deep learning training through partnerships with minority-serving institutions. Additional networking and educational opportunities will be available before and after the event.
