NVIDIA GTC: What to Expect from Dell Technologies

Get a sneak peek at our sessions and events at NVIDIA GTC and how we’re helping shape what’s next in AI and accelerated computing.

As AI continues to transform every aspect of business, organizations are called to put it to work to increase productivity, deliver the right experiences for users and customers, and accelerate innovation. That’s why we’re excited to help organizations on their AI journeys with the broadest AI solutions portfolio from desktop to data center to cloud.¹ And there’s no better place to do it than NVIDIA GTC—bringing together industry luminaries, developers, researchers and business strategists helping shape what’s next in AI and accelerated computing.

Plan on seeing a lot of Dell Technologies in and around GTC. As Diamond Elite sponsors of the event, we’ll be showing up everywhere—from our booth in the AI Center of Excellence, to on-site lounges, to our breakout sessions, and at our Wednesday evening reception at San Pedro Social.

Here’s a little more on what to expect from us. We recommend bookmarking this post so you have it handy as a reference during the show.

Immerse Yourself in AI at the Dell Technologies Booth

Our Dell Technologies booth within the AI Center of Excellence is the perfect place to learn about what’s possible when you bring AI to your data. We’ll be on hand to show you our broad portfolio of AI products and solutions that support you from core to cloud to edge—and help you no matter where you are in your AI journey.

There’s no better way to get to know our technologies than to try them out yourself, which is why our booth will offer a number of hands-on demos. Use generative AI (GenAI) for image creation at the Invoke + NVIDIA AI Workbench. Or learn how you can get up and running quickly with a retrieval augmented generation (RAG) proof-of-concept and put your data to work fast. Or configure infrastructure via a VR-connected digital twin experience. There will even be digital artists on hand to show you interactive GenAI drawing demos. All of this can inspire you with AI possibilities within your own organization.

Deep Dive on Our Technologies in Our Breakout Sessions

Once you’ve had a chance to explore what’s on tap from Dell Technologies in our booth, go a bit deeper with our six breakout sessions. We’ll be offering four on-site and two through the virtual experience, which you can learn more about below. 

Unlocking the Potential of Generative AI with Your Data

The AI landscape has witnessed remarkable growth, fueled by the rise of generative AI and the need for organizations to tailor solutions to their specific use cases. We’ll explore why bringing AI to your data results in better outcomes, how techniques such as model augmentation can allow you to leverage smaller models and how our joint initiative with NVIDIA can reduce the friction of building or repurposing generative AI models in your environments. Session ID: S62977. Attend online.

Accelerate Generative AI Innovation with Dell PowerEdge

Join us for an overview of Generative AI solutions with NVIDIA and get an inside look at what’s next for the Dell PowerEdge XE product family. We’ll explore how Dell’s broad portfolio of products and services empower you to build GenAI solutions tailored for your business, including a demo and resources to deploy a RAG chatbot customized with your own business data. Session ID: S63026. Attend online.

Turbocharging NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD with Dell Data Lakehouse and PowerScale

Organizations want to embrace AI but find they struggle with the complexity of finding, accessing, prepping and serving all the data that makes AI initiatives successful. In this session, you’ll learn how to solve these challenges through an open, modern data lakehouse and a trusted NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD built on Ethernet technology and Dell PowerScale AI-Ready data platform. Session ID: S62991​. Wednesday, Mar 20 | 11:00 AM – 11:25 AM PDT

Redefining Limits: Empower Generative AI Using Cutting-edge Workstations

Interest in AI and machine learning workloads is growing, but along with it come questions about the complexity of implementation. In particular, generative AI, with its ability to create original content, has shown great promise, but realizing its full potential requires significant computational power. Many organizations have wondered whether workstations have the muscle to handle the demands of generative AI workloads. This session explores the possibilities when you pair Dell Precision workstations with NVIDIA RTX GPUs. Session ID: S62995​. Tuesday, Mar 19 | 2:00 PM – 2:25 PM PDT

Performance Characterization for Different Model Customization Methods on Popular Foundational Models

To develop AI models tailored to their specific use cases, organizations need customized large language models (LLMs) infused with their domain knowledge. To help you get started, this session will delve into various techniques for customizing LLMs, including prompt engineering, prompt learning, fine-tuning and low-ranking adaptation. We’ll talk through which model customization techniques and foundational models are best suited for various enterprise use cases, then investigate the performance characteristics of these model customization methods. Session ID: S62033. Wednesday, Mar 20 | 9:00 AM – 9:50 AM PDT

Getting the Storage Right for AI Applications

Generative AI is a complex landscape when it comes to storage, requiring solutions that are high capacity, high performance, high bandwidth and low latency to support data ingestion, preparation, training and inference. Furthermore, storage platforms need to handle different file systems, protocols and networks to support multimodal models. In this session, we’ll cover essential topics like hybrid, multicloud, data migration, security and capacity scaling. A panel of experts from across the NVIDIA storage partner ecosystem will offer tips and strategies that can help you avoid potential issues to get the most from your storage for different AI applications. Session ID: S62476. Wednesday, Mar 20 | 2:00 PM – 2:50 PM PDT
