SAN JOSE, Calif.—Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang is promising that his company will be a significant player in the growing field of deep-learning technology, where neural networks can learn from past experience and improve their performance over time. Deep learning has use in a broad array of areas, from self-driving automobiles to medical services to image and voice recognition. At the GPU Technology Conference 2015 (GTC) here, Huang introduced a new powerful GPU, the GeForce Titan X, as well as Digits DevBox, an appliance powered by the new GPU that runs Nvidia's Digits software to help developers and data scientists researching deep-learning technologies. The new offerings build on Nvidia's efforts over the past decade in expanding the use of its GPU accelerators in mainstream, scientific and high-performance computing (HPC). At the GTC, Nvidia showed off its new offerings, while other vendors, such as Dell, Hewlett-Packard and Lenovo, displayed their own compute systems that leverage Nvidia's GPU technologies. This eWEEK slide show gives a sampling of some of those systems as well as some of Nvidia's newest products.
