NVIDIA’s GTC 2023 offers more than 650 special events, sessions, and expert panels across technologies, industries, and skill levels.


The world has witnessed some incredible developments in AI during the past 6 months. ChatGPT shook up the internet with its ability to mimic research papers and provide thorough and seemingly intelligent answers to commonly googled questions. Through these innovations, it is evident that Generative AI has the potential to revolutionize the way we create, imagine, and design.


With its ability to generate complex, realistic, and diverse outputs, Generative AI is rapidly transforming a variety of industries, from entertainment to healthcare. One of the key advantages is that it can learn from large datasets, enabling it to generate diverse and creative content.

Let’s take an example of generating AI-based potential accident scenarios for autonomous vehicles.


Generative AI can generate completely new and original pieces with a fresh and unique AI output, which opens the door to many applications where rare data is needed and has enormous potential for a wide variety of use cases. For instance, autonomous vehicles (AVs) must be able to safely handle any traffic scenario that could be encountered in the real world. This includes hazardous near accidents, where an unexpected maneuver by other road users in traffic could lead to a collision.


However, developing and testing AVs in these types of scenarios is challenging. Real-world collision data is sparse, and recreating such situations in the real world is dangerous and difficult to scale. NVIDIA developed a method called STRIVE (Stress-Test Drive) to create a rich set of accident scenarios for an AV planner. The planner’s behavior can be improved by analyzing where it fails in simulation and correcting it before deploying on the real road.

  2. Soumith Chintala, Researcher, Meta, and Creator of PyTorch
  3. Paul Debevec, Chief Research Officer, Netflix Eyeline Studios
  4. Kathryn Guarini, CIO, IBM Corporation
  5. Tony Hemmelgarn, CEO, Siemens Digital Industries Software
  6. Sergey Levine, Associate Professor, UC Berkeley
  7. Thomas Schulthess, Director, Swiss National Supercomputing Centre, ETH Zurich
  8. Kathy Smith, Artist, and Professor, USC
  9. Ashok Srivastava, Chief Data Officer, Intuit


One of the unique features of GTC is the industry-specific modules that are curated to cater to the needs of different industries. These modules provide a forum for experts in various fields to share their experiences and insights on how GPU technology and AI can be applied to solve real-world problems. Some industry-specific sessions expected to be featured at GTC 2023 include healthcare, finance, manufacturing, and transportation. Each module will include a series of technical sessions and panel discussions focused on the unique challenges and opportunities facing that industry.


As the meteoric rise of ChatGPT demonstrates, generative AI can unlock the enormous potential for companies, teams, and individuals. How generative AI paves the way for the future will be a key topic at GTC - from conversational text to creating virtual worlds from images. Here’s a list of key speakers and exciting sessions lined up this year:


GTC 2023 promises to be an exciting one-stop event for everyone interested in the latest advances in GPU technology and AI.
