AI Summit has been canceled
NVIDIA has decided to call off the AI Summit, which was to be held in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Approximately two weeks ago, NVIDIA made an announcement regarding its CEO, Jensen Huang, being scheduled to deliver a keynote address at the AI Summit. This event was specifically organized by NVIDIA to focus on the latest advancements in artificial intelligence. Given that the summit spanned two days and originally included in-person participation, it held significant importance for NVIDIA, given their substantial investments in AI and ML technologies, particularly through their graphics technology.
However, in light of recent developments, NVIDIA has made the difficult decision to cancel this event. The primary reason for this cancellation is to prioritize the safety and well-being of all the attendees. As of now, NVIDIA has not released any information regarding the possibility of rescheduling the event, nor have they mentioned whether the planned keynote will be recorded or livestreamed as an alternative.
We hope this message finds you safe and well. We regret to inform you that due to the current situation in Israel, we have decided to cancel AI SUMMIT, which was scheduled for October 15th and 16th.
Our hearts go out to all those affected by the situation. The safety and wellbeing of our participants are our top priority, and we believe this is the best course of action to ensure everyone’s safety.

The two-day summit was expected to draw in a crowd of over 2,500 developers, researchers, and decision-makers hailing from one of the world’s most dynamic technology hubs. NVIDIA has chosen Israel, which boasts a thriving startup ecosystem, with over 6,000 startups, many of which are focused on AI.
