Hello Zindians!

NVIDIA GTC - the conference for AI innovators, technologists, and creatives - will return from 12-16 April, online, and this time, it’s bigger than ever - with 1400+ free sessions from AI pioneers, including Jürgen Schmidhuber, Yann LeCun, Geoffrey Hinton, and Yoshua Bengio.

GTC brings together brilliant, creative minds looking to ignite ideas, build new skills, and forge new connections to take on the world’s biggest challenges. Now, on the virtual stage, we’re including even more innovators from around the world, with interactive sessions and hands-on training.

Registration is free and gives you access to all the webinars, ‘Connect with Experts’ sessions, demos, research posters, and more. You can sign up here.

It all kicks off at 5:30 pm CEST on April 12 with an announcement-packed keynote from NVIDIA CEO and Founder Jensen Huang. Access to Jensen’s live GTC keynote does not require registration and promises to include a number of surprises, so be sure to watch.
