NVIDIA’s Deepu Talla to join TC Sessions: Robotics Robot Brain panel on July 17 at MIT

The agenda for TC Sessions: Robotics  (July 17 in Cambridge, MA at MIT’s Kresge Auditorium) is almost complete, and before the long July 4 weekend we wanted to announce one more stellar addition to the line-up. (And remind you to grab a ticket before they are all gone!)

One of the advances driving robotics in recent years are powerful GPUs, and no discussion of the robot brain would be complete without them. So we are pumped to announce that Deepu Talla, the head of NVIDIA‘s Tegra division, which deploys critical GPU technology in robots, UAVs and much more, signed on to our Robot Brain panel. Talla formerly ran NVIDIA’s mobile business unit and has a PhD in computer engineering from the University of Texas.

He joins previously announced panelists Heather Ames, the CTO of Neurala, a startup that provides deep learning capabilities for robots, and Brian Gerkey, whose Open Robotics developed one of the most widely used operating systems for robots.

The Robot Brain panel is only one of many sessions that you won’t want to miss, including interviews with MIT CSAIL’s Daniela Rus, Disney’s Martin Buehler, ReThink’s Rodney Brooks, TRI’s Gill Pratt, ABB’s Sami Atiya and many more.

Please set aside July 17 and join TechCrunch, our speakers and attendees for an amazing day of robotics. Get your tickets while they last. Interested in sponsorship? More information is available here. General questions? Reach out here.
