NVIDIA's GPU Technology Conference (GTC), the conference for the era of AI, stands as a cornerstone event in technological innovation. Year after year, it serves as a nexus for visionaries, developers, and industry leaders to converge and explore the latest advancements in AI and GPU-accelerated computing. This year's conference promises to be no different, with an array of groundbreaking technologies and partnerships poised to redefine the landscape of AI and machine learning, including the highly anticipated keynote by NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang.

Deepgram is thrilled to announce our sponsorship of this year’s NVIDIA GTC. As a leader in voice AI technology, we’re excited to share the art of the possible and how we’re unleashing new frontiers in voice AI technology.

Here’s a preview of what you can expect to see at the Deepgram booth at this year’s GTC.

Redefining Human-machine Interaction with Voice AI

If you plan on attending Nvidia GTC this year, visit our booth #1719 to learn how you can power your applications with the latest voice AI technology. 

Our team of experts will be on-site, demonstrating how Deepgram’s Voice AI platform and models work. The team will also showcase an array of tech demos to spark inspiration and highlight the versatility and magic behind our cutting-edge models, Nova-2 and our recently released Aura text-to-speech model for conversational AI.

One important aspect of these models to highlight is their ability to seamlessly handle real-time interactions. When talking to virtual agents, nothing is more frustrating than waiting for responses or conversational turns. As a result, Nova-2 and Aura were created to deliver minimal latencies for real-time transcription (<300 ms) and responsive text-to-speech (<250 ms). 

Here’s a sneak peek into our very own voice-activated video game, Yappybird, powered by Nova-2. Stop by the booth and pay to earn the highest score, and take home the coveted prize, a Rabbit R1, an AI-powered pocket assistant. 🐇

Whether you're a seasoned developer, curious about how to get started with voice AI, or just want to see Robodoge do some cool tricks, there's something for everyone at the Deepgram booth.

Unveiling Aura Text-to-speech

If you’re headed to Nvidia GTC, stop by and explore Deepgram’s first-ever text-to-speech model, Aura. Created for real-time, conversational voice applications, Aura delivers human-like conversations faster, more efficiently, and cost-effectively than comparable text-to-speech alternatives.  

Developers can choose over a dozen human-like voices to create responsive AI agents to power use cases like voice ordering, personal assistants, and customer support agents, making it ideal for these applications.

Here’s a demo from Greg Kamradt (Data Indy) who built an extremely fast conversational voice bot with Aura and Groq:

Daily a leading WebRTC livestreaming video platform recently created an AI agent to handle patient intake with Deepgram Aura. With this application, patients can converse with a human-like AI agent that collects accurate and detailed clinical information via a phone call or web application.

Deepgram’s Voice AI platform makes it easy to build a full-stack voice AI agent. Simply pair the Aura text-to-speech model and the Nova-2 speech-to-text model with the LLM of your choice. 

If you want to experience Aura for yourself, check out our open-source demo to interact with our AI agent.

Anyone can sign up to start building with Aura and receive $200 in credits absolutely free, good for more than 13M characters of voice synthesis. Visit us at GTC to learn how you can seamlessly integrate Aura into your use case.

AI After Hours with Deepgram and Clarifai

But the excitement doesn't end when the conference floor closes. Join us for Deepgram’s AI Mixer, co-hosted with Clarifai on March 19th, to network and exchange ideas with fellow AI leaders and developers. 

This event is the perfect opportunity to unwind, connect, and continue the conversation beyond the confines of the conference. Space is limited, but you can RSVP to join the waitlist.

Clarifai provides a single workflow to build AI faster and unlock value instantly, leveraging today’s modern AI tech stack components like large language models (LLMs) and Retrieval Augmented Generation (RAG), data labeling, inference, and more. Clarifai was built to simplify how developers and teams create, share, and run AI at scale. 

Together, we have partnered to accelerate AI innovation by combining powerful speech-to-text models with Clarifai's platform that simplifies the process of creating and deploying Large Language Models (LLMs), data labeling, and modeling unstructured image, video, text, and audio data. 

This integration opens up new possibilities for developers to build and deploy AI applications with voice at scale as quickly and easily as possible

We hope to see you at the AI Mixer!

Everyone’s Favorite AI Mascot: RoboDoge!

Last but not least, we’re bringing everyone’s favorite robot dog to the party: RoboDoge. If you haven’t had a chance to meet him, stop by Deepgram booth #1719 or our AI Mixer to check out his cool tricks or even snap a selfie. Be sure to tag @DeepgramAI in all of your pictures and videos—we would love to see them!

2024: The Era of Voice AI

At Deepgram, we constantly push the boundaries of what’s possible in AI-driven voice technology. And this year, we plan to showcase how voice is driving human-to-machine interactions. If you’re attending GTC, we would love to meet you. Visit our booth #1719 and learn more about our presence this year by visiting this link.

There’s still time to join the waitlist for access to Deepgram and Clarifai’s AI Mixer on Tuesday, March 19th.
