The first major event at Computex Taipei 2017 was the Powering The AI Revolution keynote by NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang. Although the keynote was heavy on artificial intelligence technologies like NVIDIA Isaac and NVIDIA Volta, Jensen also announced other technologies like GeForce GTX with Max-Q Design.
NVIDIA Isaac, Max-Q, Volta, HGX & More!
In this 90 minute long keynote, Jensen reveals the future of artificial intelligence and robotics. In that vision, the GPU is taking over from the CPU in delivering the petaflops of computing power required to deliver artificial intelligence.
He also reveals the new NVIDIA technologies that will power the next-generation AI applications – the new NVIDIA Tesla V100, which is the largest GPU ever made, and the NVIDIA HGX server that hosts eight of these GPUs to deliver almost 1 petaflops of compute performance in a single chassis!
Jensen also shows how the NVIDIA Isaac Initiative allows robots to self-learn in a virtual environment, using nothing more than the NVIDIA Jetson 2 module. Watch how AI on the edge delivers smarter intelligence with minimal work.
Whether you are a scientist in these fields, or just geeks like us, you will enjoy listening to his views and NVIDIA’s endeavours in those technologies.[adrotate group=”1″]

The NVIDIA AI Forum Keynote Begins!
NVIDIA Jensen Huang arrives for his eagerly awaited keynote on AI and related NVIDIA technologies.
Jensen Huang announces Project Holodeck! It’s basically virtual reality for engineers.
GeForce GTX With Max-Q Design
Jensen Huang shows off a notebook using the new GeForce GTX with Max Q design.
The NVIDIA Tesla V100 (NVIDIA Volta)
Jensen Huang introduces Volta – the new Tesla V100 accelerator. That’s 120 TFLOPS of compute performance courtesy of 5,120 CUDA cores.
And this is the NVIDIA HGX server with EIGHT NVIDIA Tesla V100 accelerators producing 960 TFLOPS!

The NVIDIA GPU Cloud is revealed!
The NVIDIA Isaac Initiative
NVIDIA also introduced their robotics platform – the Isaac Initiative, named after Isaac Asimov.
The NVIDIA Isaac Initiative will be built around NVIDIA Jetson 2 and the Isaac Robot Simulator, which allows the robots to train themselves in a virtual world.
