The NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute (DLI) and Luleå University of Technology invite you to attend a hands-on deep learning workshop. The workshop is for developers, academic students, staff, and researchers.

NVIDIA DLI offers hands-on training for developers, data scientists, and researchers looking to solve challenging problems with deep learning and accelerated computing.

This workshop teaches deep learning techniques for understanding textual input using natural language processing (NLP) through a series of hands-on exercises. You’ll learn techniques to train a neural network for text classification, build a linguistic style model to extract features from a given text document, and create a neural machine translation model for converting text from one language to another.

Duration: 8 hours

Assessment type: Code-based, multiple-choice

Certificate: Upon successful completion of the assessment, participants will receive an NVIDIA DLI certificate to recognize their subject matter competency and support professional career growth.

Prerequisites: Basic experience with neural networks and Python programming; familiarity with linguistics.

Languages: English, Chinese

Tools, libraries, and frameworks: TensorFlow, Keras

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the workshop, you’ll have an understanding of:

  • Classical approaches to convert text to a machine-understandable representation
  • Implementation and properties of distributed representations (embeddings)
  • Methods to train machine translators from one language to another
