The biggest event in Artificial Intelligence and GPU Technology, NVIDIA GTC Spring 2023 is here. GTC (GPU Technology Conference) provides a sneak peek into the best in AI, High-Performance Computing, and industry-leading software every year. And this year will be no different.
Starting on March 20 and spanning over 4 days with more than 650 sessions, it will have some of the best talks from the best people in the industry. And we at LearnOpenCV will be covering this year’s GTC and posting the highlights of each day of the event.
Get a Chance to Win the NVIDIA RTX 4080 GPU
NVIDIA has very kindly sponsored the following giveaways for our newsletter subscribers.
- NVIDIA 4080 worth … it is tough to say. Call it priceless!
- 5 Deep Learning Institute (DLI) credits worth $90 each.
To enter a chance to win a GPU or one of the five DLI credits all you need to do is subscribe to our newsletter if you are not already a subscriber and register for GTC (it’s FREE).
NVIDIA CEO and founder Jensen Huang will also deliver a keynote on March 21 Pacific Time. With all the hype going around with Transformers and LLMs (Large Language Models), this year’s GTC is going to be one of the best ones yet. With topics and industries ranging from generative AI to Robotics, the talks will cover the latest advancements in technology that has happened recently.

NVIDIA GTC Spring 2023 Notable Talks
With 650+ sessions in GTC 2023, it is impossible to get a hold of all of them. If you have to select a few, the following are some of the most notable talks and chats of NVIDIA GTC 2023.
Keynote by Jensen Huang
The best part is that registration to NVIDIA GTC 2023 is entirely free and Jensen Huang’s keynote can be viewed without registration. This generally covers an overview of all the important research and development in AI by NVIDIA.
And most probably detailed events of all the mentions follow in the rest of the GTC event.
Fireside chat with Jensen Huang and OpenAI co-founder Ilya Sutskever
OpenAI has done some incredible work in 2022 with DALL-E and ChatGPT.
It is no doubt that a fireside chat with co-founder Ilya Sutskever is going to be a great one. This is a must if you are a researcher or developer in generative AI and NLP.
Talk by DeepMind founder Demis Hassabis on using AI to accelerate Scientific Discovery
DeepMind has been pioneering in Scientific Research using AI for the past decade. Models like AlphaGo for game playing and AlphaFold for predicting protein’s 3D structure were breakthroughs in the field of AI. This talk will feature how DeepMind employs AI for great scientific discoveries.
Stability AI founder Emad Mostaque will speak on High-Resolution Image Synthesis via Two-Stage Generative Models
It is not a hidden secret anymore that Stable Diffusion is perhaps the best open-source image generation model. In this talk, Emad Mostaque will dive into the details of the two-stage generative models and also the training process of Stable Diffusion.
Here are some of the other notable speakers:
- Chike Aguh, Chief Innovation Officer, U.S. Department of Labor
- Soumith Chintala, Researcher, Meta and Creator of PyTorch
- Paul Debevec, Chief Research Officer, Netflix Eyeline Studios
- Kathryn Guarini, CIO, IBM Corporation

Organizations like Dell Technologies, AWS, Amazon Robotics, Google, and many others are going to participate in the GTC sessions.
NVIDIA GTC Spring 2023 Event Specific Sessions
The following are some of the even specific sessions:
- Session from NVIDIA’s autonomous team on AV (Autonomous Vehicle) development.
- Talks on how generative AI is transforming the creative space.
- Talks on robotics and simulation.
Apart from these a lot of other talks and sessions will revolve around Generative AI, AI safety in art, and how it is helping in discovering new content and drugs for the medical industry.
Deep Learning Workshops and Career Development
Every year NVIDIA GTC hosts Deep Learning workshops. This provides a learning opportunity for both engineers and business leaders to get hands-on technical workshops that are instructor-led.
This is offered by the NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute (DLI) and is discounted during the NVIDIA GTC events. The DLI event covers the most essential parts of Deep Learning following the recent trends.
- Deploying deep learning models.
- Inference and production as scale.
- Building real-time AI applications.
- Building applications and models for edge and Jetson Nano.
DLI provides both self-paced and live training and every year at GTC unveils new topics for DLI.
Here are some of the instructor-led workshops that may be worth checking out:
- Fundamentals of Deep Learning
- Scaling CUDA C++ Applications to Multiple Nodes
- Building Transformer-Based Natural Language Processing Applications
- Building Conversational AI Applications
- Computer Vision for Industrial Inspection
Opportunities for Startups
Startups create a lot of impact in the field of deep learning by spearheading some of the latest research in the field.
NVIDIA is quick to recognize this and offers the NVIDIA Inception program. This provides an opportunity for startups to learn from experts in AI. This helps new companies to grow while integrating AI smoothly into their systems. Not only that, the NVIDIA Inception Program helps startups to connect with venture capitalists as well.
There are also feature sessions for startups. Starting from Generative AI in the startup environment to the potential of Metaverse, the sessions cover a wide range of topics.
Along the same line, NVIDIA also offers the Venture Capital Alliance Program which helps investors understand AI to make smarter investment choices. Not only this, but this also provides an opportunity for investors to access AI startups around the world and those who are a part of the NVIDIA Inception Program.
NVIDIA GTC 2023 will conclude on March 23, 2023, all while covering the latest breakthroughs in AI and High-Performance Computing.
