Keynote Key Takeaways

NVIDIA CEO, Jensen Huang, is well-known for captivating keynotes with live demonstrations, new product announcements and tech humour - GTC Munich 2018 was no different.

NVIDIA RAPIDS

This is an open-sourced GPU-accelerated platform to give companies working with Big Data a huge competitive advantage. Paired with the DGX2, RAPIDS for predictive analytics provide savings over CPU based racks by using 1/8th of the cost, 1/15th of the space and 1/18th of the power!

While displaying their advancements, Jensen showed how their newly developed RAPIDS with a DGX-2 changed a Data Scientists workflow in a beautifully illustrated timeline (as seen above). In summary, the Data Scientist significantly lowered waiting times and produced more data in a shorter amount of time!

 

NVIDIA DRIVE AGX

NVIDIA Drive AGX is a scalable, open platform that works as the AI brain for self-driving vehicles. Over 20 vehicles powered by NVIDIA Drive were on show at GTC; from driverless cars, taxis and trucks to a street sweeper. So what better place to announce that the AGX software and developers kit is now available than Munich!

Volvo and Continental were two of many companies to announce the adoption of NVIDIA’s Autonomous driving solution for their next round of development. Discover more on NVIDIA's automotive highlights.

(MU)VR Village

Boston’s Roamer MU-VR solution was our highlight from the VR Village while demoing NVIDIA’s Holodeck. The photorealistic, collaborative design VR engine transported attendees into a virtual dimension where they were able to draw in 360, separate parts of the car from its body and achieve other amazing features.

The wireless HTC Vive Pro’s with NVIDIA P6000 GPUs provided lossless quality and minimal latency with movie-quality graphics while roaming untethered in the holodeck.

Testing Is available in both our UK and German offices so get in contact for more information!
