NVIDIA, a computer technology company that manufactures high-tech GPU-accelerated computing, is now bringing the Deep Learning Institute (DLI) concept to India for the first time, at IIT Bombay. Global experts will be conducting hands-on training sessions in Artificial Intelligence, DL techniques and problem-solving for all levels of data scientists and developers.

NVIDIA DLI has previously trained thousands of practitioners globally, through hands-on training sessions as well as online courses in collaboration with Coursera, Udacity, and Microsoft. Modules are based on solving real-world challenges, which ranges from building a self-driving car to training your computer to automatically detecting cancer, and led by global subject matter experts.

 

The India edition of DLI, held in conjunction with the inaugural NVIDIA GTCx in India, will offer two modules, customized for beginners and intermediates.

BEGINNERS

This lab introduces the machine learning workflow and provides hands-on experience with using deep neural networks (DNN) to solve a real-world image classification problem. One can also see the benefits of GPU acceleration in the model training process.

Deep Learning for Object Detection

Building upon the foundational understanding of how deep learning is applied to image classification, this lab explores different approaches to the more challenging problem of detecting if an object of interest is present within an image and recognizing its precise location within the image.

 

INTERMEDIATE

Deep Learning for Network Deployment

In this lab, participants will test three different approaches to deploying a trained DNN for inference. They will learn about the role of batch size in inference performance as well as various optimizations that can be made in the inference process and can also explore inference for a variety of different DNN architectures trained in other DLI labs

Interested participants can view the detailed agenda and register for the program here.
