NVIDIA is expanding its Deep Learning Institute (DLI) with new partnerships and educational courses.
DLI, which trains thousands of students, developers and data scientists with critical skills needed to apply artificial intelligence, has joined hands with Booz Allen Hamilton and deeplearning.ai to train thousands of students, developers and government specialists in AI. DLI and Booz Allen Hamilton will provide hands-on training for data scientists to solve challenging problems in healthcare, cybersecurity and defense.
NVIDIA is also expanding its reach with the new NVIDIA University Ambassador Program that enables instructors worldwide to teach students critical job skills and practical applications of AI at no cost. The graphics processing designer is already working with professors at several universities, including Arizona State, Harvard, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and UCLA.
To further elaborate its plans, the company is also offering new courses designed to teach domain-specific applications of deep learning for finance, natural language processing, robotics, video analytics and self-driving cars.
DLI is working with more than 20 partners, including Amazon Web Services, Coursera, Facebook, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, IBM, Microsoft and Udacity.
Moreover, DLI is expanding the range of its training content with new project-based curriculum to train Udacity’s Self-Driving Car Engineer Nanodegree students in advanced deep learning techniques as well as upcoming new projects to help students create deep learning applications in the robotics field around the world; new AI hands-on training labs in natural language processing, intelligent video analytics and financial trading; and a full-day self-driving car workshop, “Perception for Autonomous Vehicles,” available later in November 2017.
