NVIDIA Brings AI in Action to ICML in Sydney

AI takes centrestage in tutorials, conference, demos, and training

NVIDIA will be bringing together the best of minds and technologies in the field of artificial intelligence (AI) to the International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML) in Sydney, Australia from August 6 to 11.

It is expected to draw up to 3,000 participants, consisting of faculty, researchers and PhD students in machine learning, data science, data mining, AI, statistics, and related fields. NVIDIA is providing scholarships for 52 students from around the world to participate in ICML.

Visit the NVIDIA booth At the NVIDIA booth will be a showcase of exciting demos – many on display in Australia for the first time – highlighting how GPUs can unlock the immense possibilities of AI by speeding up processes from years to just weeks and days. These include: • 4K style transfer: A deep neural network to extract a specific artistic style from a source painting, and then synthesises this information with the content of a separate video. • Self-driving auto: The Drive PX2 is an AI car computing platform that enables automakers and tier 1 suppliers to accelerate production of automated and autonomous vehicles. • AI at the edge: The NVIDIA Jetson TX2 is a credit card-sized platform that puts AI computing to work in devices such as drones, body cams and robots. • Deepstream: The SDK simplifies development of high performance video analytics applications powered by deep learning. • NVIDIA GPU Cloud: The GPU-accelerated platform runs everywhere to let data scientists and researchers rapidly build, train, and deploy neural network models to address some of the most complicated AI challenges. • NVIDIA Isaac: The AI-based software platform lets developers train virtual robots using detailed and highly realistic test scenarios. • NVIDIA DGX Station: The world’s first personal supercomputer for leading-edge AI development enables researchers and data scientists to experiment at their desks and extend their work across DGX Systems and the cloud.

The NVIDIA booth at Level 2, The Gallery, Booth #4, will be open from August 6 to 11.

Attend the NVIDIA DLI workshop In conjunction with ICML, NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute (DLI) will offer a one-day “Scene Description Generation with TensorFlow” hands-on workshop on August 10 from 9am to 5pm.

DLI provides hands-on training for developers, data scientists, and researchers looking to solve challenging problems with deep learning.

The workshop will be held at Parkside 2 Meeting Room, Sydney International Convention Centre. Register here http://nvda.ws/2shlgnT
