My colleague Usman Pirzada from WCCFTECH noticed something interesting while writing an article about the GTC 2021 announcement, because the wording of the blog post seemed a bit too ominous to him. That’s because when he took a closer look at the flashing lights in the tweet, he realized there was a Morse code message embedded in it. So it seems like the company is going for an Intel Xe-style scavenger hunt with this. Since the hidden text is pretty mundane, more puzzles are likely to follow.
But what had NVIDIA actually written?
This is one of the videos posted on the Twitter account and you have to look really hard:
Look closely at the flashing light bulbs forming a golden neuron (usually used to represent deep neural networks). The flashing lights are actually Morse code and each light bulb represents a single word. If you now decode the blinking pattern using Morse code, you get “HIDDEN TREASURE HIDDEN TREASURE”. This could mean many things now, of course, but the most likely is that NVIDIA is hosting an Intel Xe-style scavenger hunt, handing out clues and riddles in the Twitter feed.
If you now take this discovery and build a URL from it, you get this: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/gtc/hidden-treasure/
