Okay. Why don’t we go ahead and get seated, because we are going to start in about a minute here.
So, good morning everyone and Happy New Year. Welcome to J.P. Morgan’s 18th Annual Technology and Automotive Investor Forum here at the Consumer Electronics Show.
For those of you that don’t know me, my name is Harlan Sur. I am the semiconductor and semiconductor capital equipment analyst for the firm. Very pleased to have a solid day of semiconductor, automotive, automotive technology, general tech companies presenting. Also joining me here from J.P. Morgan are some of my colleagues, I've got Bill Peterson, who covers the RF semiconductor value chain; I've got my colleagues Ryan Brinkman and José Asumendi, who cover the U.S. and European automotive sectors; Paul Coster, our Applied & Emerging Technologies analyst; and Samik Chatterjee who covers our IT hardware and telecom and networking equipment sectors.
We continue to expand the companies that participate at our conference and for the first time at our CES Conference this year, we have management teams from Microchip, Qualcomm, Xilinx, Cree, Gentherm, Gentex and Lear.
So, we hope you enjoy the conference. Remember this conference is for you guys.
So ask questions. We’ve got a great line-up of companies. And with that, I am very pleased to introduce Colette Kress, the Chief Financial Officer of NVIDIA. It’s been a tradition now for the past, I think five or six years now that the NVIDIA team kicks off our investor conference, because the team is driving much of the trends that you’ll hear about today artificial intelligence and deep learning, next-generation compute architectures in automotive, next-generation gaming technology, just to name a few of the things. I’d ask Colette to kick us off with an overview of what the team is showcasing here at CES or maybe GTC – the recent GTC in Shanghai and then we’ll go ahead and kick off the Q&A.
So with that, Colette, thank you again for joining us this morning.
