While you can catch NVIDIA GTC’s featured speakers on the GTC Sessions Page and learn about the sessions they will provide, it’s worth mentioning the exciting lineup of other speakers that will feature at the world’s #1 AI conference. This inspiring lineup will include preeminent AI researchers and pioneers of deep learning, data science, high-performance computing, graphics, and more.
Some speakers to look forward to at GTC 2021 are:
Dr. Fie-Fie Li — a professor at Standford University, Dr. Fei-Fei Li is also the inventor of ImageNet and ImageNet Challenge, a critical large-scale dataset and benchmarking effort that has helped contribute to the latest development in deep learning and artificial intelligence. She is also a national advocate for diversity in STEM and AI. In her live session at GTC, Dr. Li will discuss her research with ambient intelligence. Ambient intelligence is the element of a pervasive computing environment that enables it to interact with and respond appropriately to the humans in that environment. Some examples of ambient intelligence available today are Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa – devices that automatically respond to a person’s voice.
Ilya Sutskever — the co-founder and chief scientist at OpenAI – an artificial intelligence research laboratory – will be live at GTC discussing the history of deep learning, what it can do today, and what the future might hold. Deep learning is a type of machine learning based on artificial neural networks in which multiple layers of processing are used to extract progressively higher-level features from data.
Dr. Anima Anandkumar — the director of Machine Learning (ML) research at NVIDIA and Bren professor at Caltech has conducted research that spans both theoretical and practical aspects of machine learning. Dr. Anandkumar will be presenting new and exciting advances in AI that build new foundations applicable to a wide array of problems such as fluid dynamics and quantum chemistry.
There will also be many other influencers who will be participating live this year at GTC 2021 including:
