GTC Digital gives participants more bang for the buck
What could have been a dampener may just turn out to be a better offering for participants who have registered for this year’s GPU Technology Conference (GTC). Yes, they won’t get to go to San Jose. Yes, they will miss the face-to-face meetings. But, NVIDIA has put great thoughts into making GTC Digital, the online version, just as engaging and informative. Plus, NVIDIA has refunded all participants so they can attend most of the conference for free.

Toyota cruises with NVIDIA Drive PX2
Toyota, one of the world’s largest automakers and renowned for its high standards and priority on safety, has picked NVIDIA Drive PX for its autonomous vehicles. It will use the AI car computer platform to power advanced autonomous driving systems planned for market introduction within the next few years
Engineering teams from the two companies are already developing sophisticated software that will enhance the capabilities of Toyota vehicles, enabling them to better understand the massive volume of data generated by sensors on the car, and to handle the broad spectrum of autonomous driving situations.
“Toyota has worked on autonomous driving technologies for over 20 years with the aim of reducing traffic fatalities to zero as an ultimate goal, achieving smoother traffic, and providing mobility for all. Through this collaboration, we intend to accelerate the development of autonomous driving systems that are even more safe and capable,” said Ken Koibuchi, Executive General Manager of Toyota.
Finally, the Big Bang for AI!
Artificial intelligence (AI) is not new. In fact, it has so many false starts over the past 60 years. The term went into hibernation for a long time.
Research into AI began way back in Dartmouth College in 1956 and was constantly associated with being the next frontier in the 1980s when mainframe computers ruled and supercomputers were a ginormous investment that very few could afford.
Despite the research put in over the years, the technology never quite took off and fell flat in many instances.

For those unable to be at GTC in San Jose, NVIDIA is webcasting live on the NVIDIA blog the keynote addresses:
- April 6, 12 to 2am (Singapore): Jen-Hsun Huang, NVIDIA co-founder and CEO

Iray VCA renamed NVIDIA VCA to reflect expanded support
At GPU Technology Conference in March, NVIDIA introduced Iray VCA (Visual Computing Appliance). Today, NVIDIA has renamed the appliance as NVIDIA VCA to reflect its expanded industry support for GPU rendering across multiple applications.
NVIDIA VCA dramatically accelerates ray tracing, enabling users to interact with computer models of such high visual fidelity that it can eliminate the need for 3D physical prototypes. In addition to native support of NVIDIA Iray, Chaos Group is supporting V-Ray RT on VCA for Autodesk 3ds Max, with Autodesk Maya, McNeel Rhino, and Trimble SketchUp for later in the year. Dassault Systemes 3DXCITE Bunkspeed support is also scheduled for later this year.
The scalable, network-attached GPU rendering appliance comes with eight high-end NVIDIA GPUs and is designed to do just one thing — provide designers and artists with the fastest and easiest way to create photorealistic images of their creations. It’s claimed to be so fast that designers can interact with their models or scenes in real-time rather than waiting minutes or even hours for rendered images to come back. This means that designers can study the play of light and reflection from their designs and catch flaws like glare on the interior windshield of a digital car model or see how the lobby of a proposed office building will look at different times of day.
