Post GPU Technology Conference Highlights: Keynotes

Heads up,. this morning we announced our keynote speakers for GTC 2010. Our CEO, Jen-Hsun Huang, will give the opening keynote for the conference on Tuesday, September 21st. If you've ever had a chance to speak you know it's always a great experience - we won't share the details of his talk now, but encourage you to attend the keynote for yourself.

Our day two keynote will be given by Klaus Schulten, a computational biologist at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His keynote will highlight the major discoveries made using the computational microscope, including viewing protein folding, translating genetic codes in cells and harvesting solar energy in photosynthesis. In addition, he will review his pioneering research on cell disruption and viruses, including the H1N1 virus. His H1N1 research uses the GPU-based computational microscope to focus on the structure of the virus, determine how it reacts to drug treatment and investigate possible methods of combating it.

The day three keynote, given by robotics pioneer at Stanford University and distinguished engineer at Google, Sebastian Thrun, will unveil how advances in GPU computing for computer vision will fundamentally advance self-driving, robotic technology for cars.
