NVIDIA GTC starts on April 12th with more than 1,400 sessions including the latest deep learning technologies in conversational AI, recommender systems, computer vision, and video streaming. 

Here’s a preview of some of the top AI/DL sessions at GTC. 

  1. Building and Deploying a Custom Conversational AI App with NVIDIA Transfer Learning Toolkit and Jarvis

    Tailoring the deep learning models in a Conversational AI pipeline to the needs of your enterprise is time-consuming. Deployment for a domain-specific application typically requires several cycles of re-training, fine-tuning, and deploying the model until it satisfies the requirements. In this session, we will walk you through the process of customizing ASR and NLP pipelines to build a truly customized production-ready Conversational AI application that is fine-tuned to your domain.

  2. Accelerated ETL, Training and Inference of Recommender Systems on the GPU with Merlin, HugeCTR, NVTabular, and Triton

    In this talk we’ll share the Merlin framework, consisting of NVTabular for ETL, HugeCTR for training, and Triton for inference serving. Merlin accelerates recommender systems on GPU, speeding up common ETL tasks, training of models, and inference serving by ~10x over commonly used methods. Beyond providing better performance, these libraries are also designed to be easy to use and integrate with existing recommendation pipelines.

  3. Accelerating AI Workflows with NGC

    This session will walk through building a conversational AI solution using the artifacts from the NGC catalog, including a Jupyter notebook, so the process can be repeated offline. It will also cover the benefits of using NGC software throughout AI development journeys.
