Minecraft, the painless alternative to stepping on tiny plastic bricks

Have you ever stepped on a lego brick? Toy blocks have quite a history (and not just in relation to your decision to wear slippers).

AI and self-driving cars?

That and more at the GPU Technology Conference. It’s the biggest GPU conference in the world and it kicked off this morning. Are you there?

Between sessions on AI and self-driving cars, conference attendees will have a chance to learn new tools with hands-on NVIDIA labs powered by qwikLABS. If you’re attending the conference, check the schedule to see when labs are available.

If you’re not at the conference (bummer!), take a look at the NVIDIA self-paced lab catalog. Not sure where to start? Earn a badge with our latest Quest, Introduction to Deep Learning.
