Guest Speaker

Eric Dahan, Canadian Manager of NVIDIA, will be speaking on a topic of importance for all companies considering deploying their AI/ML platform in the public cloud:

Accelerated Computing and the Age of AI

With the exponential growth of AI and high-performance computing, cloud data centers have adapted their architecture. Companies wishing to deploy their AI/ML platform in the cloud must understand the key aspects of this new architecture. In parallel, companies must understand how high-performance edge computing must be adapted to meet the surge of data, speed of data collection, and compute workloads associated with the deployment of new AI solutions.

Eric has been in the IT industry for more than 25 years and is responsible for the strategy and marketing of NVIDIA solutions in the areas of high-performance computing and artificial intelligence. Eric holds a Bachelor’s degree from the Université de Montréal in Computer Science and Operations Research.
