SAN FRANCISCO, March 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- OmniSci, the pioneer in GPU-accelerated analytics, today announced its Gold Sponsorship of GTC 2019, the premier AI conference, taking place March 17-21 in San Jose, California. The company's participation at GTC will include speaking appearances by OmniSci CEO and co-founder Todd Mostak, VP of Global Community Aaron Williams, VP of Product Management Venkat Krishnamurthy and Data Scientist Wamsi Viswanath. They'll discuss the revolution in big data analytics brought about by the use of GPUs, and in one of the presentations Mostak will present alongside BMW Group.

NVIDIA GTC (the GPU Technology Conference) provides training, insights and direct access to experts on many of the hottest topics in computing today, from AI and deep learning to intelligent machines, high performance computing, accelerated data science and more. GTC attracts developers, researchers and technologists from many of the top tech companies, universities, research firms and government agencies globally.

"We're excited to present with BMW at GTC to showcase how GPU-accelerated analytics on the OmniSci platform allows for real-time analysis of vehicle telematics data," said Todd Mostak, CEO at OmniSci. "By harnessing the power of NVIDIA GPUs, OmniSci enables the automotive industry to unlock value from their big data and uncover insights that transform their businesses. We are excited to work closely with NVIDIA to allow telematics data to be processed and analyzed orders-of-magnitude faster than previously possible."

Beginning March 18, OmniSci executives will lead several seminars and training sessions. The lineup includes:

    --  "How BMW Visualizes and Interacts with Extreme Datasets with Near Zero
        Latency," featuring Caroline Persson, data scientist at BMW Group, and
        Todd Mostak, explaining how the BMW Group is building dashboards with
        OmniSci technology to leverage the treasure trove of data from connected

        engineer at NVIDIA, and Wamsi Viswanath training attendees in ways to
        load, analyze, pre-process, model and visualize data using open source
        methods for accelerating machine learning. The session will utilize data
        from the NASA GeneLab, an initiative to better understand the biological
        effects of long-term spaceflight (March 20, 1:00-3:00 PM, SJCC Room
        LL21E, Lower Level).

Additionally, OmniSci will be demonstrating its flagship platform, which harnesses the massive processing power of GPUs to redefine speed and scale in big data querying and visualization, from its booth at GTC 2019.
