Research in Focus
Leading AI researchers will participate in 200+ sessions, including a panel moderated by Huang on Transforming AI with all eight authors of “Attention Is All You Need,” a seminal research paper on transformers. Other research highlights include:

Learning and Development

GTC presents a rich variety of learning and development opportunities for career professionals, policymakers, educators and students. Policy makers can join a discussion on the challenges of AI regulation with representatives from the U.S. Congress, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the European Union and NVIDIA.

Attendees can choose from 20 full-day, instructor-led, hands-on technical workshops, many of which will be available virtually in EMEA and APAC time zones.

For the first time at GTC, participants can receive professional certification in generative AI.

More than 40 complimentary onsite training labs are included in the GTC “Conference + Training” package.

To further support AI in academia, a curated set of sessions will be available to help educators integrate NVIDIA technologies into classrooms and courses.
