GPU market leader NVIDIA recently held its virtual GPU Technology Conference (GTC). The show is loaded with product updates on how accelerated computing and artificial intelligence (AI) can change the way we work, live, and are entertained.

The most recent Mobile World Congress (MWC) took place at the end of February. The main theme of the show has been and continues to be telco transformation for the better part of the last decade.
