NVIDIA compute GPUs and software toolkits are key drivers behind major advancements in machine learning. Of particular interest is a technique called "deep learning", which utilizes what are known as Convolution Neural Networks (CNNs) having landslide success in computer vision and widespread adoption in a variety of fields such as autonomous vehicles, cyber security, and healthcare. In this talk is presented a high level introduction to deep learning where we discuss core concepts, success stories, and relevant use cases. Additionally, we will provide an overview of essential frameworks and workflows for deep learning. Finally, we explore emerging domains for GPU computing such as large-scale graph analytics, in-memory databases.
