Cobus Bothma Presents at Leading Technology Conference

KPF’s Director of Applied Research participated in two events centered on emerging technologies in architecture at NVIDIA’s GPU Technology Conference (GTC), running from March 21 to 24.

Cobus presented in an event titled “Architectural Design, Omniverse, and the Simulated World,” showcasing how KPF has adopted NVIDIA’s state-of-the-art simulation software to give designers new tools. KPF was an early adopter of Omniverse, exploring its server-side collaboration capabilities and allowing for new possibilities in geometry and visual computing. Through new technology, architects don’t need computer programming or advanced visualization experience to leverage artificial intelligence and other advancements.

In another event, “Why Simulation in AEC is Critical,” Cobus joined a panel of architecture, engineering, and construction experts to share his expertise using simulation technology. The panel explored how simulation has become necessary in the sector, and why it will be even more central in the coming years.

The world’s leading AI and Deep Learning conference, GTC brings together experts from around the globe to discuss the hottest topics in computing today, such as Intelligent Machines, Graphics, and Entertainment. The conference attracts top universities, research firms, and government agencies across multiple disciplines, from robotics to gaming and the automotive industry. Learn more here.
