Intel Developer Forum i.e. IDF traditionally was an event that ends the summer break and opens new opportunities to do business. However, over the past couple of years we’ve heard numerous stories that the company is charging too much for the exhibit space, and does not know where the focus is. At the same time, its public arms – Public Relations (PR) and Investor Relations (IR) departments started to retreat into themselves, becoming more and more unavailable to the members of media, new media channels as well as industry analysts. Today, the biggest confirmation of “building a Wall around the company” came true, as Intel Developer
With the conference being over a month away, NVIDIA sent out a press release announcing the conference. The conference starts on Monday, May 8th, and lasts until Thursday, May 11th. This year, NVIDIA reshuffled the conference format in a bid to ensure continuous coverage of the conference. What used to be opening keynote with Jensen Huang, co-founder and the CEO is now being shifted to the penultimate day. The expectations for the conference are quite big, with the focus on A.I. and deep learning, virtual reality and self driving vehicles. We will cover the conference extensively. NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA), a world leader in AI computing technology, will
2016 will remain known as the year of the GPU. By looking into technology stocks, we can see that the growth of visualization, Virtual and Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning drove GPU to the new heights. Central conference for GPU technologies remains the one organized by NVIDIA, entering its ninth year. From May 8-11, 2017, NVIDIA is getting ready to unveil vast number of news and features coming from the company and its ecosystem. GTC 2017 brings a very interesting opportunity for a few companies or teams that are working on creating new products for Virtual Reality or Augmented Reality. Conference organizers announced a contest where
Eurocom, Canadian high-performance computer manufacturer announced they’ll attend the 2016 GPU Technology Conference, which is being held next week in San Jose’s McEnery Conference Center. “Graphics professionals from all over the world will be able to witness the performance of VR Ready, EUROCOM Sky X9 and DLX7 High performance fully upgradeable laptops with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 graphics, Intel Core i7 6700K processors and 64 GB DDR4 memory” said Mark Bialic (President). The company expects that they will receive positive feedback from the GPU developers which need to squeeze every bit of performance while they are on the go. While using desktop components in a mobile
NVIDIA announced on Wednesday that IBM Watson Chief Technology Officer Rob High will deliver a keynote at the GTC 2016 – GPU Technology Conference in San Jose, California, next month. High will be joining other keynote speakers attending the conference including Toyota Research CEO Gill Pratt and Nvidia’s own CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang. Back in November 2015, IBM revealed that its Watson cognitive computing platform had begun using Nvidia’s Tesla K80 GPU accelerators. Working with NVIDIA, the company incorporated GPU-accelerated computing as-a-service capabilities into SuperVessel, a global cloud-based OpenPOWER ecosystem resource. Users now can instantly launch Caffe, Torch and Theano deep-learning frameworks from the SuperVessel cloud
Ever since its inception during what was a dark hour of world economy, Emerging Companies Summit became an integral part of NVIDIA’s GPU Technology Conference, bringing interesting startups into the limelight. Companies such as Elemental Technologies (acquired by Amazon for $296 million), Dave Perry’s GAIKAI (acquired by SONY for $380 million), Natural Motion (acquired by Zynga for $527 million), Oculus (acquired by Facebook for $2 billion) as well as automotive UI pioneer Rightware – all presented at this side event. 2016 Edition will be held on April 6 and last for 12 hours, from 9AM to 9PM (and probably well into the night at the Awards Ceremony). For this year, Emerging
At the Japanese edition of NVIDIA GTC (GPU Technology Conference), NVIDIA finally revealed details behind its 2016 graphics architecture, codenamed Pascal. The architecture was launched at the main GTC event, which took place in San Jose on March 17th, 2015 (watch Jen-Hsun Huang’s GTC keynote here). GTC Japan was hosted by Marc Hamilton. As always, the Pascal GPU will be manufactured in Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), using the brand new 16nm FinFET process. This process is much more than a simple number, since it marks the shift from planar, 2D transistors to the FinFET i.e. 3D transistors. This shift required that the engineers make lot of changes in the
Not much is known about the specs of the Titan X, but these photos reveal a bit more about Nvidia’s upcoming card.
Nvidia is launching a $100,000 GPU startup prize as part of their emerging companies summit which runs during Nvidia’s 2015 GPU Technology Conference.
