GTC India Keynote

NVIDIA’s Shanker Trivedi kicked off the opening keynote at GTC India today.

One of Shanker’s key messages to India’s GPU developers was to make sure to sign up for our Developer Program to get access to all the latest NVIDIA SDKs, CUDA 8 software, and other great developer tools. I’m surprised how often I talk to developers who aren’t registered and using versions of NVIDIA software that are months or years out of date.

Speaking of developers, as promised, one of my favorite apps from yesterday’s Emerging Companies Summit is Recipe Book. Apparently at least a few developers like to cook, and I remember online recipe sites from the early days of the Web. Recipe Book is a lot more than just recipes. It uses GPU deep learning to suggest recipes you can make given a list of ingredients on hand. It can even suggest recipes based on a picture of what you have in your refrigerator. I can’t wait to get home and try this app out. Given my travel schedule, I often find myself trying to figure out what to make the day before a business trip when I don’t want to go to the store and restock.
