Topic:
The GPU. The First GPU I owned was a 3dfx Voodoo Rush. Just like that gaming on the PC took on a whole new life. Since then the GPU has been a corner stone in any PC I have built. Until recently the GPU was limited to a few hours a week playing games. But now, my GPU is churning away 24 hours a day taking part in one of two cutting edge technologies.

Blockchain technologies are revolutionizing the way we use money, but they also hold promise for the way businesses work together.

Machine Learning is changing the way we consume data and interact with our computing resources. Even if you do not know it, you are interacting with Machine Learning daily.

Both of these cutting-edge technologies leverage the modern GPU in new and exciting ways. Both of these technologies will forever change the way we use out computer systems in business and beyond. And, Microsoft is in the forefront of both technologies driving them forward. Join us to discover ways Microsoft is giving us the tools to be part of these revolutionary technologies.
