Startup Shootout at NVIDIA Emerging Conference Startup: Could one of these dozen startups be the next Oculus?

A dozen rising stars in the tech world will soon take to the stage to compete for $100,000 and a shot at glory.

It worked for Oculus. Only a year after appearing at the Emerging Companies Summit, Facebook acquired the virtual reality headset maker for $2 billion.

Jed Fisher's insight:

This is one of my favorite events. It's an excellent format with high quality innovative graphics/3D/GPU-using startups and an experienced panel. The crowd is always filled with VCs and sharp investors and asks excellent questions. I always come away with some new insights.

I've taken a look a most of the startups competing - lots of great stuff.

I was especially impressed with the technology by Artomatix - this is really neat and powerful. Also nice to see CFD finally in the cloud and using the GPU - makes a ton of sense. 

I look forward to seeing you there - ping me to meet up! - jed(at)4Dpipeline(dot)com

Honda and Audi show the future of driving at Nvidia conference | 4D Pipeline - trends & breaking news in Visualization, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, 3D, Mobile, and CAD. | Scoop.it
At seminars during the annual Nvidia GPU Technology Conference, Honda and Audi discussed new automotive technologies that could change the way we drive. Read this article by Wayne Cunningham on CNET.
Jed Fisher's insight:

This is a example of just one of the many brilliant talks at this years NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference (GTC). 

If you havent done it already pencil in March 24th-27th for the 2014 event. 

BTW, if you happen to work in the automotive or manufacturing sector and use the GPU or products that use the GPU then get in touch with me as there are still some speaker slots open (4D Pipeline is again helping with the organization of it) jed(at)4Dpipeline.com
