Vishal Dhupar, NVIDIA’s managing director in South Asia believes that we are about to enter a new era of artificial intelligence. He was speaking at the data science congress 2017 event in Mumbai, India.
During his key note to the audience at the data science congress, Vishal Dhupar spoke about the power of artificial intelligence and how it can positively impact human life. He said that artificial intelligence can help us solve extremely critical macro level problems like predicting economical and ecological imbalances, forecasting epidemics and geological disasters etc.
NVIDIA is an American technology company based in Santa Clara, California, and is known as the world leader in visual computing technologies. NVIDIA’S invention of the GPU (graphics processing unit) in 1999 sparked the growth of the PC gaming market, redefined modern computer graphics, and revolutionized parallel computing.
More recently, NVIDIA’s GPU deep learning ignited modern Artificial Intelligence, the next era of computing, with the GPU acting as the brain of computers, robots, and self-driving cars that can perceive and understand the world. Today, NVIDIA is increasingly known as “the Artificial Intelligence computing company.”
The use of graphic and visual technologies are increasing within the data science and artificial intelligence space. As Vishal Dhupar rightly pointed out during his speech, “making sense of data is not just about making sense of structured and unstructured text, but also about making sense of images and speech”.
Aegis School of Business, Data Science & Telecommunication, a leading educational institute in India that offers a dedicated post graduate program in data science, which is also the organizer of data science congress event, signed an industry-academia partnership with NVIDIA to ensure the latest and the best technology education in artificial intelligence is imparted to its students.
As we enter the era of artificial intelligence, data science congress is working towards creating an ecosystem to position India at the center stage of research and development in artificial intelligence and to promote applications of data science within the multinational companies, local businesses, government institutes, research institutes, NGOs, startups etc.
