NVIDIA announced its lineup of keynote speakers for the fourth-annual GPU Technology Conference, which will be held at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, Calif., March 18-21.
NVIDIA CEO and co-founder Jen-Hsun Huang will discuss the growing impact of GPU technology in the opening keynote address on Tuesday, March 19. On Wednesday, March 20, Erez Lieberman Aiden, a pioneering genomics researcher, will discuss his work sequencing the human genome in 3D, which allows scientists to gain insights into gene behavior and fundamental biological processes of life. Aiden will reveal how his team harnesses GPUs to accelerate the analysis of massive amounts of genomic information and simulate the physical process of genome folding, uncovering insights into gene expression that can now be used by thousands of researchers.
The keynote address on Thursday, March 21, will feature Ralph Gilles, senior vice president of product design, president and CEO of SRT (Street and Racing Technology) Brand and motorsports at Chrysler Group. Providing a behind-the-scenes look at the auto industry, Gilles will review how GPUs are used to advance every step of the automobile development. He will also discuss how Chrysler Group uses GPUs and the latest technologies to build better, safer cars and reduce time to market.
