GTC Digital begins this week as virtual event with free registration. While the annual GPU Technology Conference typically packs hundreds of hours of talks, presentations and conversations into a five-day event in San Jose, NVIDIA’s goal with GTC Digital is to bring some of the best aspects of this event to a global audience, and make it accessible for months. “Apart from the instructor-led, hands-on workshops and training sessions, which require a nominal fee, we’re delighted to bring this content to the global community at no cost. And we’ve incorporated new platforms to facilitate interaction and engagement.”

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is enlisting AiMOS, one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world, in the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic. Rensselaer is reaching out to the research community, including government entities, universities, and industry, to offer access to AiMOS in support of research related to the new coronavirus disease. “This effort requires expertise, collaboration, and the ability to process incredible amounts of data, and Rensselaer is offering all three at this critical time. In particular, the ability to model at very large scales requires the unique capabilities of AiMOS.”
