XENON NVIDIA Fundamentals of Deep Learning for Multiple Data Types

This workshop teaches you to apply deep learning techniques to a range of problems involving multiple data types through a series of hands-on exercises. You will work with widely-used deep learning tools, frameworks, and workflows by performing neural network training on a fully-configured GPU accelerated workstation in the cloud. After a quick introduction to deep learning, you will advance to building deep learning applications for image segmentation, sentence generation, and image and video captioning, while simultaneously learning relevant computer vision, neural network, and natural language processing concepts. At the end of the workshop, you will be able to assess a broad spectrum of problems where you can apply deep learning.

  • Duration: 8 hours
  • Assessment Type: Multiple Choice
  • Certification: Upon successful completion of this workshop, you will receive NVIDIA DLI Certification to prove subject matter competency and support professional career growth
