The NVIDIA 2024 GTC AI conference brings together an influential dream team of the AI industry’s biggest influencers helping shape what’s next in AI and accelerated computing.
The GPU Technology Conference (GTC) will take place from 18-21 March 2024 at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, California. The GTC agenda offers something for AI enthusiasts at every technical level and interest area.
GTC 2023 was a virtual event, but 2024 sees a return to an in-person GTC experience with tons of unique networking events. Virtual attendance is also possible, but the prospect of attending in person already has me checking flights to San Jose.
For those looking to get their hands on next-gen NVIDIA technology and tools, the action starts the day before the conference with immersive full-day, hands-on technical workshops on 17 March.
The highlight of the conference will be NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang’s keynote where he’ll share the latest NVIDIA and AI technologies affecting every industry—and our everyday lives..
Last year’s keynote saw Huang announce exciting developments like the H100 NVL GPU with NVLink, the Grace Hopper Superchip, and DGX Cloud, which provides instant access to AI supercomputers from a browser.
