Ditching its traditional format, GTC 2024 welcomes both in-person and virtual attendees (March 17-21) in a new hybrid model. While it marks a significant shift for NVIDIA, the biggest change is the focus – Artificial Intelligence (AI) will take center stage at GTC 2024.

The success of previous hybrid iterations led NVIDIA to retain this format. This ensures accessibility for everyone, allowing remote participation and the opportunity to tap into the wealth of knowledge and resources offered at GTC 2024. By embracing a hybrid format and placing AI at the forefront, the conference aims to foster a collaborative environment that propels the future of AI development. With its diverse program, esteemed speakers, and focus on nurturing innovation, GTC 2024 promises to be a landmark event for anyone invested in the ever-evolving world of AI.

Greg Estes, NVIDIA’s VP of Developer Programs, emphasizes the expanded reach of GTC 2024. The hybrid format facilitates a dynamic exchange between diverse stakeholders within the AI ecosystem. Imagine industry leaders, researchers, and even students coming together to network and collaboratively shape the future of AI. This “cross-pollination” of ideas has the potential to significantly accelerate advancements in the field.

A dedicated section will highlight startups that leverage NVIDIA’s technology ecosystem. This provides a valuable launchpad for these young companies, granting them the opportunity to connect with venture capitalists and secure funding for their AI-powered ventures.

Beyond the keynote, the event offers a comprehensive program. Attendees can expect hundreds of sessions and workshops delving into the complexities of AI. These sessions will offer in-depth discussions, demonstrations, and interactive learning experiences. The exhibition floor, another focal point, showcases cutting-edge advancements from over 300 participating companies, including industry giants like Google, AWS, and Oracle. This creates a platform for a comprehensive overview of the AI landscape.

Held in the heart of Silicon Valley (San Jose, California), GTC leverages its proximity to a hub of technological innovation. The SAP Center and the San Jose McEnery Convention Center serve as the event’s central locations. The SAP Center takes center stage for the highly anticipated keynote address by Jensen Huang, NVIDIA’s CEO and Founder.
