nvidia gtc 2014

Was a superlative conference this year once again in San Jose. Jen-Hsun Huang never fails to deliver in his rousing keynotes, this year announcing the exciting prospect of Nvlink and Pascal with superior I/O bandwidth, coming down the pipeline for IBM power systems. Special bonus this year : everyone received the terrific new shield android gaming device, already put to good use by this aging nerd. Too many great talks to mention, Pierre-Yves did a particularly fine job on presenting a new GPU approach for batch QR decomposition, as well as his MD work, and I was able to essentially report out on our year as a CUDA research center. Wonderful to meet new friends and old, great conversation over dinner, bofs and frequent collisions in the hallways (for a large convention center, seems awful small at times.) Officially my favorite conference; thank you Nvidia!
