NVIDIA to Unleash Deep Learning in Hyperscale Datacenters

NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang Tuesday announced new technologies and partnerships that promise to slash the cost of delivering deep learning-powered services. Speaking at the kickoff of the company’s ninth annual GPU Technology Conference, Huang described a “Cambrian Explosion” of technologies driven by GPU-powered deep learning that are bringing support for new capabilities that go far beyond accelerating images and video.

“In the future, starting with this generation, starting with today, we can now accelerate voice, speech, natural language understanding and recommender systems as well as images and video,” Huang, clad in his trademark leather jacket, told an audience of 8,500 technologists, business leaders, scientists, analysts and press gathered at the San Jose Convention Center.
