Sixty companies from more than a dozen countries will showcase new technologies based on the graphics processing unit (GPU)—including computer vision, robotics, gesture recognition and video processing—at the Emerging Companies Summit this month in San Jose, CA.
The 60 companies will share details and provide technology demonstrations from their exhibit space on the show floor.
