A global line-up of artificial intelligence (AI) experts will be heading to Sydney to speak at the NVIDIA AI Conference. Researchers and developers will also get training from the NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute (DLI) during the event.

Held at the International Convention Centre (ICC) Sydney on September 3 and 4, the two-day event will be feature speakers such as:

  • Marc Hamilton, Vice President of Solutions Architecture and Engineering of NVIDIA
  • Steve Oberlin, CTO of Accelerated Computing of NVIDIA
  • Prof Dacheng Tao, ARC Laureate Fellow and Professor of Computer Science of The University of Sydney
  • Prof Tom Drummond, Leader of Computer Vision Lab, Monash University
  • John McGiffin, Managing Director of Deep Recognition
  • Dr Juxi Leitner, Research Fellow of Australian Centre for Robotic Vision
  • Kurt Janssen, CEO of Orbica
  • Fred Almeida, CEO of neuri.ai
  • Dr Johan Barthelemy, Research Fellow of University of Wollongong SMART Infrastructure Facility.

They will speak on AI and deep learning for enterprise; intelligent video analytics, autonomous machines and robotics; and large-scale AI and research.

The conference will also feature a CXO lunch, tech demos, a VR Village, and an exhibition by leading AI organisations and NVIDIA Inception Program startups.

The NVIDIA Inception Program is a virtual accelerator that provides critical resources for emerging AI companies seeking deep learning expertise and enablement. It has nurtured close to 3,000 startups globally that are revolutionising industries with advances in AI and data science.  The program helps them during critical stages of product development, prototyping and deployment, including providing access to AI experts, resources and hardware.

Preceding the conference is the NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute (DLI) instructor-led hands-on training to equip researchers and developers with critical skills needed to apply AI. More than 100,000 unique developers have undergone DLI training and CUDA has been downloaded more than two million times.

The training will be on the fundamentals of deep learning for computer vision; the fundamentals of accelerated computing with CUDA C/C++; and deep learning for finance trading strategy.

NVIDIA AI Conference is the platform for those interested to learn more about and grow a deeper understanding of AI, including CEOs, CTOs, CIOs, IT managers, data centre managers, data scientists, developers, and academics.

It casts the spotlight on innovative ways developers, businesses and academics are using AI and deep learning to transform the world. Participants will hear about and see the latest breakthroughs in areas such as healthcare, big data, high performance computing, self-driving cars, robotics, smart cities, and virtual reality.
