Global AI Experts Headline Premier AI Conference in Sydney

The two-day NVIDIA AI Conference will feature a full-day conference, deep learning training, a CXO lunch, tech demos, a VR Village, and an exhibition by leading AI organisations and NVIDIA Inception Program startups.

NVIDIA will be bringing the NVIDIA AI Conference, its premier artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning event, to Sydney, Australia on September 3 and 4.

Held at the International Convention Centre (ICC) Sydney, the two-day event will be a gathering of experts in the AI field from NVIDIA and other leading organisations, including many from Australia.

NVIDIA AI Conference is the platform for those interested to learn more about and grow a deeper understanding of AI, including CEOs, CTOs, CIOs, IT managers, data centre managers, data scientists, developers, and academics.

It is designed to highlight innovative ways in which developers, businesses and academics are using AI and deep learning to transform the world. Participants will hear about and see the latest breakthroughs in areas such as healthcare, big data, high performance computing, self-driving cars, robotics, smart cities, and virtual reality (VR).

The speaker line-up is comprised of global experts as well as Australian and Asian technology leaders. They include Marc Hamilton, Vice President of Solutions Architecture and Engineering, NVIDIA; Steve Oberlin, CTO of Accelerated Computing, NVIDIA; Prof Dacheng Tao, ARC Laureate Fellow and Professor of Computer Science, The University of Sydney; Prof Tom Drummond, Leader of Computer Vision Lab, Monash University; John McGiffin, Managing Director, Deep Recognition; Dr Juxi Leitner, Research Fellow, Australian Centre for Robotic Vision; Kurt Janssen, CEO, Orbica; Fred Almeida, CEO, neuri.ai; and Dr Johan Barthelemy, Research Fellow, University of Wollongong SMART Infrastructure Facility.

They will speak on AI and deep learning for enterprise; intelligent video analytics, autonomous machines and robotics; and large-scale AI and research. Their topics range from “How to start the Deep Learning Journey for Businesses” and “Learning to Grasp the World" to "Edge computing with Jetson TX2 for monitoring flows of pedestrians and vehicles" and "Creative AI: the new frontier”.

The conference will also feature a CXO lunch, tech demos, a VR Village, and an exhibition by leading AI organisations and NVIDIA Inception Program startups.

The NVIDIA Inception Program is a virtual accelerator that provides critical resources for emerging AI companies seeking deep learning expertise and enablement. It has nurtured close to 3,000 startups globally that are revolutionising industries with advances in AI and data science. The program helps them during critical stages of product development, prototyping and deployment, including providing access to AI experts, resources and hardware.

Among the startups are many from Australia and New Zealand, including Max Kelsen, a high potential genomics startup that leverages AI and machine learning to turn big data to big ideas.

Preceding the conference is the NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute (DLI) instructor-led hands-on training to equip researchers and developers with critical skills needed to apply AI. More than 100,000 unique developers have undergone DLI training and CUDA has been downloaded more than two million times.

The training will be on the fundamentals of deep learning for computer vision; the fundamentals of accelerated computing with CUDA C/C++; and deep learning for finance trading strategy.
