Nvidia Reschedules GTC Keynote With CEO Jensen Huang

The chipmaker said Huang will 'highlight the company’s latest innovations in AI, high performance computing, data science, autonomous machines, healthcare and graphics during the recorded keynote' on May 14 on YouTube.

Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang is set to hit the limelight again after the chipmaker announced it has rescheduled the executive's keynote for the ongoing digital GPU Technology Conference.

The Santa Clara, Calif.-based company announced that Huang's GTC keynote, which is expected to include disclosures of new products and technologies, is set to air on YouTube on May 14 at 9 a.m. Eastern Time. After airing, it will be available on demand at YouTube.com/Nvidia.

Nvidia said Huang will "highlight the company’s latest innovations in AI, high performance computing, data science, autonomous machines, healthcare and graphics during the recorded keynote."

The company's digital GTC, which has been running since March with new programming, has attracted more than 45,000 registered attendees who have tuned into 300 recorded talks and dozens of instructor-let sessions, according to Nvidia.

Huang's GTC keynote was originally scheduled for March 23, but after the company moved its flagship conference to a digital format due to the coronavirus, the company decided to cancel the address because it had planned to use a larger number of external vendors to film and produce the video that would have run up against new social distancing guidelines that had been put in place.

Huang also made the call in mid-March to postpone any product announcements.

"That way, our employees, partners, the media and analysts who follow us, and our customers around the world can focus on staying safe and reducing the spread of the virus," he said at the time.

When Nvidia announced it was postponing the disclosure of new products, a spokesperson said the company would set a new date "once the situation stabilizes."
