Creating An Inclusive Conference

GTC is a conference for all communities to engage with leading-edge AI and other groundbreaking technologies.

These technologies affect everyone, and NVIDIA believes that diverse voices of the world should be heard. Our sessions and speakers are selected to inspire and impact developers from emerging countries, as well as historically underrepresented students and professionals.

GTC recognized in Forbes as a top conference for women to attend to further their careers.

Free Access

Free Conference Access For All

We’ve made GTC free, so everyone has access to all of the  500+ conference talks including technical and business strategy sessions designed to accelerate tech careers.

Complimentary Training Sessions

We’re working with partner organizations like W.AI, LatinX in AI and Ewha Womans University to open up training opportunities to underrepresented communities by providing free seats for daylong, hands-on certification classes through NVIDIA’s Deep Learning Institute (DLI).

How Can We Bridge the Diversity Gap in Data Science and AI?
While data science and AI are the fastest-growing roles, women hold only a minority of these positions. According to World Economic Forum data, only 22% of AI professionals globally are women, and fewer than 1% of the applications received by companies for expert-level positions come from women. Bridging the gender gap in AI will help raise the research level by increasing the pool of talent, as well as lowering the algorithmic gender bias by having more women training the algorithms.
Building a More Diverse and Inclusive Dataset
The ability to use language is as old as humanity. Multilingualism and valuing linguistic diversity have been a way to break down barriers and make quantum leaps as a species. With the speed at which technology is advancing, there is the possibility of introducing many more of the world’s 7,000 languages as datasets to close communication gaps and increase our understanding of different cultures, each of which has unique music, stories, and epistemologies. Marginalized peoples and cultures are often excluded from AI datasets. What are the potential benefits and challenges of better representation in Big Data and AI?
AI for Smart City Professionals
When we talk about making cities “smarter," we're not just talking about implementing digital interfaces in traditional infrastructure or ensuring efficient city operations. We have to also think about how to use technology and data in a focused way to make better decisions and deliver better quality of life to the people that live, work, and play in these bustling urban centers. Artificial intelligence—integrated with Internet-of-things (IoT) technology—is a great place to start improving the lives of the citizens and businesses that inhabit a city. It has the potential to address key challenges that are born from urbanization, failing infrastructure, traffic management, population health challenges, energy crises, and many other issues.
Democratizing AI in Emerging Markets through the United AI Alliance
Learn how the United Nations Foundation/Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data (GPSDD) and Future Tech Enterprises are partnering to provide NVIDIA's platform to National Statistical Offices (NSOs) throughout Africa. NVIDIA's EGX Servers, Deep Learning Institute and Solution Architects are equipping and training NSO Data Teams. Enabling them to transform and accelerate their workflows. Join Dr. Claire Melamed, CEO of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data; Prof. Samuel Kobina Annim, Government Statistician at the Ghana Statistical Service; and Bob Venero, President and CEO & of Future Tech Enterprise in our discussion of the impact the United AI Alliance is making in developing nations.
Latin America’s Growing Artificial Intelligence Wave
Artificial intelligence is developing rapidly around the world. Latin American countries have the capacity to harness the full potential of AI. This panel will bring influencers from governments, industry, and academia to discuss the state of AI, assess the ecosystem in Latin America, and motivate cooperation about new AI-enabled initiatives to foster development. We'll also touch on the importance of research and mentorship in shaping the future of AI, how NVIDIA has been empowering researchers and educators, and lowering the barrier of incorporating AI and GPU computing in the lab and classrooms.
Unleashing African Talent in the Age of AI
Africa’s AI economy is booming, and it needs more homegrown developers. The key to growing an AI economy—which includes everything from fintech to health care, AgTech, and venture capital—is to grow the developer talents that build the products and engines on which it runs. Africa is the world’s fastest-growing continent for software developers. The developer talent there is younger than those in more advanced locations. Seventy percent of these developers are either self-taught or are learning through nontraditional pathways, including community meetups, boot camps, hackathons, etc. What can bridge the developer skills gap in the rapidly expanding talent pool, and advance their learning experience to meet global market requirements?
