Learning and Development Opportunities
GTC provides participants at all stages of their careers with outstanding learning and development opportunities – many of which are free.
The event kicks off with Learning Day, for all levels and backgrounds, on Monday, March 21, and continues the rest of the week with sessions in four languages across multiple time zones. From sessions on GPU computing to AI workshops, there will be extensive learning and training opportunities for students, developers and professionals with technology talks from NVIDIA subject-matter experts, including from NVIDIA’s Deep Learning Institute (DLI) and NVIDIA Academy.
Students and early career professionals can participate in introductory courses on deep learning and robotics. They can also access sessions like “The Right Formula for AI Success: Insights from AI High Performer” and “Deep Learning Demystified” as well as the “5 Steps for Starting a Career in AI” panel, featuring Sheila Beladinejad, president of Women in AI & Robotics, and David Ajoku, founder of Aware.ai.
More experienced developers can enroll in a variety of DLI courses, including 20 free, short-day sessions and 17 full-day workshops, to dive deeper into AI and earn a DLI certificate demonstrating subject-matter competency. From Feb. 21 until the end of March, new members to NVIDIA’s Developer Program can get access to an additional complementary GTC DLI course when they sign up.
Developed for IT professionals, NVIDIA Academy will host certified training programs on the data center, InfiniBand, IT infrastructure and networking. The program includes instructor led-training sessions followed by self-paced coursework and proctored certification tests.
All workshops and sessions are led by trained, DLI-certified instructors, either from NVIDIA or partners and collaborators who are experts in their field.
Supporting AI Ecosystem for All
As part of NVIDIA’s commitment to making AI accessible for all developer communities and emerging markets, there are numerous sessions showcasing how developers and startups in emerging economies are building and scaling AI and data science. Sessions for emerging markets include “Look to Africa to Advance Artificial Intelligence” and “Democratizing AI in Emerging Markets Through the United AI Alliance.”
NVIDIA is also providing free credits for DLI courses to minority-serving institutions, from community colleges to historically Black colleges and universities.
Spotlight on Startups
NVIDIA Inception, a global program to nurture cutting-edge startups with 9,000+ members, will host tracks aimed at helping emerging companies build and grow their businesses and gain industry knowledge.
These include VC-focused sessions on such topics as Omniverse and quantum computing, as well as sessions led by NVIDIA and startups from across the globe on AI, autonomous systems, climate science, cybersecurity, healthcare and digital twins, among other themes.
