Women in AI

GTC is among America’s top conferences for women to attend to further their careers in AI. See why in this recent report in Forbes.

CONNECT WITH LEADERS IN AI

Solving the world's most challenging problems through technology will entail bringing together a diverse group of people and perspectives from around the globe. To help support this diverse research community, GTC offers exciting opportunities to learn from and connect with women doing important work in AI, deep learning, and high performance computing.  

GTC 2019 was the most diverse yet. Women made up about 15 percent of the show’s attendees, almost double that of just two years ago. And more than 100 female presenters spoke at the conference, up nearly 80 percent from 2018.

We will continue to encourage the involvement of women and other diverse communities at GTC 2020, March 22-26.

WOMEN'S EARLY CAREER ACCELERATOR

Fifty graduate students and early-career professional women came together at GTC 2019 to participate in the inaugural Women’s Early Career Accelerator, sponsored by Booz Allen Hamilton. The day-long program introduced participants to the fundamentals of deep learning through a hands-on workshop and connected them with women doing important work in the field. Sponsored participants also received a full conference & training pass, providing them access to more than 600 sessions, a keynote by NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang, over 200 exhibits, and more.

BREAKFAST AND PANEL
