ABSTRACT
NVIDIA is one of the world’s leading companies for artificial intelligence. With key technologies like photo-realistic rendering, physics simulation and of course deep learning we are positioned perfectly to take one some of the hardest challenges around building intelligent machines. In this talk you will learn more about NVIDIA, the Isaac project and the many opportunities we have around artificial intelligence and robotics.

SPEAKER BIO
David Weikersdorfer was born in Munich, Germany, where he studied Mathematics and in 2014 finished his PhD in robotics at the Technical University Munich. Following his passion for AI he moved to the Silicon Valley to join the Google’s robotics team. In 2016 he became co-founder and perception lead at OTTO, a self-driving truck startup, which was later acquired by Uber for $680 million. David now works at NVIDIA on the Isaac SDK for robotics, a full-stack solution to revolutionize how we program robots.
