AI Startups Step into Spotlight at GTC Europe Inception Awards

We brought five of the hottest startups in Europe and put them in front of a panel of some of tech’s savviest players at GTC Europe in Munich Tuesday. Then we gave one of them — Gamaya, a 20-person startup harnessing deep learning to help farms improve their productivity and sustainability — a new DGX Station in front of a room packed with more than 160 investors, entrepreneurs and industry observers.

“The reason why Inception came along is because we realized how important this new computing approach was going to be, allowing us to solve problems that were previously unsolvable,” said NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang, who watched all five companies give their presentations. “It stands to reason, therefore, that there would be innovative startups that would apply this technology to do groundbreaking work, and we wanted to be there to support them.”
