Collaborate and learn with experts
GTC offers sessions and hands-on training to aid AI and deep learning implementation through hundreds of labs, experts, and informative talks. Among these sessions, on Thursday, March 29th from 9:00AM–10:00AM, learn how to “Unlock AI Business Value” with Greg Schmidt (HPE) in session S8969 as he discusses enterprise platforms for accelerated computing with NVIDIA® NVLink™ interconnect technology. This session can help attendees advance their AI capabilities, extract key insights faster, and train deep learning models in minutes or hours—not days or weeks. Join us in Room 230C.
Session S8555 “HPE Deep Learning Cookbook: Recipes to Run Deep Learning Workloads” is geared toward the rapidly evolving ecosystem of software and hardware for deep learning. Led by Natalia Vassilieva (HPE) and Sergey Serebryakov (Hewlett Packard Labs), the session will explore the HPE Deep Learning Cookbook, a set of open source tools to demystify deep learning, research benchmarks, and build an ideal environment for deep insight. The session is scheduled for Thursday, March 29th from 11:00AM–12:00PM in room 211A.
Also, on Thursday, March 29th from 11:00AM–12:00PM in Room 210G, join Bill Dunmire (HPE) for session S8973 “Capitalize on Next Generation In-Memory HPC with HPE Superdome Flex.” Learn how the breakthrough HPE Superdome Flex platform equips scientists, engineers, and business lines with in-memory computing at unparalleled scale. Coupled with NVIDIA GPU technology, this powerful solution can help organizations solve complex, data-intensive problems, accelerate analytics, and leverage large-scale data visualization for faster discovery.
For more information, be sure to visit HPE at booth #115. HPE Pointnext and deep learning experts will be available to help attendees explore their options and begin their journeys into deep insight. And check out several cutting-edge solutions at HPE’s demo stations, including HPE Superdome Flex, HPE InfoSight, HPE Synergy, HPE Deep Learning Cookbook, IVA Smart Cities, HPE Apollo 2000 Gen10, and other groundbreaking platforms.
