Starting on Wednesday, July 22, Nvidia will be hosting a free bi-weekly instructor-led course on deep learning. The introductory course will include a combination of interactive lectures and hand-on exercises, as well as a one-hour Q&A the week following each class.
Deep learning (opens in new tab) is a form of artificial intelligence that is rapidly being adopted by many different industries. It can be used to classify images, recognize voices, or analyze sentiments, among other things, with human-like accuracy. It can be applied to facial recognition software, used for scene detection, and used in advanced medical and pharmaceutical research. The technology is even being used in the development of self-driving cars.
During the training sessions, you'll learn all the necessities of designing and training neural network-powered AI and integrating it into your own applications. The course will cover Nvidia DIGITS interactive training system for image classification, and the Caffe, Theano and Torch Frameworks. You'll have to take the introduction into deep learning as the first class. Nvidia will be supplying free hands-on lab exercises during the course through Nvidia Qwiklab.
Each class is scheduled for 9am PT and will be recorded for viewing later. The course kicks off on Wednesday July 22, and Nvidia is accepting registration right now. As this is an introductory course, previous experience with deep learning and GPU programming is not required.
