The world’s biggest mobile trade show took another blow as NVIDIA has revealed that it will not be attending the Mobile World Congress 2020 this year over concerns about the recent coronavirus outbreak. While companies like LG and Ericsson have already expressed the same, NVIDIA has to sacrifice more because it is sponsoring the event.
“Given public health risks around the coronavirus, ensuring the safety of our colleagues, partners and customers is our highest concern. We’ve been looking forward to sharing our work in AI, 5G and vRAN with the industry. We regret not attending, but believe this is the right decision,” the company said in a statement.
NVIDIA is not exactly known for its mobile products but the company has vested interest in the GPU powered AI that enables mobile speech recognition, camera optimizations and more. Even when these services are provided on the device, the neural network training and designing is done of servers provided by NVIDIA.
The company had planned ten sessions and roundtable focusing on AI planning for MWC 2020. There was also some sort of “AI Edge Innovation Centre” that would “put attendees at the intersection of AI, 5G and edge computing.” NVIDIA has not yet clarified if these events are still going ahead but without sending employees. Many of the companies that will be attending this year’s MWC event haven’t expressed much concern about the coronavirus.
Qualcomm, Lenovo, Motorola, Xiaomi, Vivo and Honor previously confirmed their plans to attend the show. ZTE canceled the press conference planned for the event but decided to have a booth at MWC 2020. We expect to hear similar announcements from other companies in the coming days. The MWC 2020 event will be held from February 24 to February 27 in Barcelona, Spain.
