Over at the Nvidia Blog, Jamie Beckett writes that the company’s is expanding its Deep Learning Institute with Microsoft and Coursera. The institute provides training to help people apply deep learning to solve challenging problems.
Deep learning is affecting a broad range of industries, and we’re seeing huge demand for people with the skills to apply the new technology effectively,” said Mark Ebersole, director of the institute.
Last year, the institute delivered more than 16,000 training hours to help data scientists and developers master this burgeoning field of AI. The institute’s instructors include NVIDIA’s own deep learning pros, as well as experts from our partners — online educators Coursera and Udacity.
In the next four months, developers can take more than 80 instructor-led workshops and hands-on labs offered around the world. They’ll learn the basics of deep learning, how to build and deploy a neural network, and how to apply this knowledge to real-world problems.
These initial sessions will be offered primarily at our GPU Technology Conferences taking place in eight cities, starting this week at GTC China. The institute website lists a full schedule of deep learning training workshops.
We want to share all our knowledge about deep learning with the world so others can create amazing things with it,” Ebersole said.
