Topics covered include state-of-the-art of cuDDN, some popular GPU-accelerated Deep Learning frameworks, the DIGIT platform and examples of work NVIDIA has done in collaboration with research and industrial partners. The list of confirmed invited speakers will be circulated by email very soon.

The networking time slot is a good opportunity for all attendees to engage with NVIDIA experts, invited speakers and other participants.
