AI has the power to transform critical business processes, but new methods will be essential to analyze and visualize data—not as a one-time event but as a continuous process. As a result, a new computing paradigm and deep learning software stack will also be required to power, predict, and act on data to accelerate this transition and produce AI enterprise applications.

Jim discusses how to apply the significant advances in GPU deep learning to perform deep learning training, develop a single AI infrastructure for your training and inference needs as you deploy AI across the industries, and implement AI software applications to increase users’ productivity. Along the way, Jim shares real-world examples of AI in action across the auto, healthcare, cyber security, and customer services industries.

This keynote is sponsored by NVIDIA.
