Dive Into the Deep Learning Revolution at the GPU Technology Conference

Deep learning changes everything. Join the insideBIGDATA team at the GPU Technology Conference which will cover almost every aspect of it.

Deep learning or machine learning couples the parallel processing capabilities of GPUs with the vast quantities of data unleashed by the internet — has unlocked a new generation of artificial intelligence applications. Image classification, video analytics, speech recognition, natural language processing — these are just the start.

GPUs are at the center of this artificial intelligence revolution. And at GTC 2016, held April 4-7 in Silicon Valley, you’ll learn how to apply the latest machine learning tools to your field.

What You’ll Learn

During GTC, you’ll hear a keynote speech from Toyota Research CEO Gill Pratt (see “Artificial Intelligence Guru Gill Pratt, of Toyota Research Institute, to Speak at GPU Technology Conference”) with self-driving cars shaping up to be a key area for deep learning.

You’ll be able to choose from more than 50 live deep learning sessions, as well as hands-on labs and tutorials that cover the most popular deep learning developments and technologies.

Just a few of the highlights:
•Alibaba’s Xian-Shen Hua will talk about how deep learning is powering real-world visual search and recognition.
•Stanford’s Apaar Sadhwani will outline how state-of-the-art medical imaging systems are harnessing GPUs for accelerated training.
•Twitter’s Clement Farabet will discuss real time video classification of live video streams.
•The University of North Carolina’s Olexandr Isayev will explain how to apply deep learning for computational drug discovery.

The common denominator: all of these speakers are using GPUs to solve enormous real-world problems.

Whatever you do, and wherever you work, you’ll find content at GTC that will help you rethink what’s possible — and give you the tools to take advantage of the very latest technologies.

Who You’ll Meet

Even more important than the content is the ability to meet people at the center of the deep learning revolution.

Bryan Catanzaro, from Baidu’s Silicon Valley AI Lab; Ian Goodfellow, from the Google Brain research team; and Xiaodong He, from Microsoft Research’s Deep Learning Technology Center, are all names you want to know — before you read about them in the history books.

You’ll get to mingle with colleagues who are bringing deep learning capabilities into a huge range of fields. You’ll bump into attendees from R&D labs at top auto companies who are using deep learning to design safer, more efficient cars. You’ll have the chance to share coffee with medical researchers who are using deep learning to diagnose eye diseases with superhuman accuracy.

In just a few years, machine learning has yielded breakthroughs in everything from voice recognition services that millions of people use every day to the way scientists track endangered whales.

More’s coming. And it’s the insights that spring up when people from so many disciplines come together — both formally and informally — that will spark the next deep learning breakthrough.

The only thing that’s missing at GTC: you. So register today.
