Workshop: Fundamentals of Deep Learning for Computer Vision

11 Jun. 2020, 08:30 - 16:00
Luleå , Zoom
Published: 26 May 2020

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.

Sign up before June 9.

During Corona times, we will have a slightly different format. At the beginning, you can listen to a pre-recorded lecture introducing into the topic, then you will have self-paced hand-on sessions during which there are trained NVIDIA-Teaching assistants available in chat. Then we will have some pre-scheduled discussion sessions, and finally, a few days later, we will have a wrap-up session – all online! You can access NVIDIA GPU-cloud services for the practical exercises all the time!

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 a range of computer vision tasks through a series of hands-on exercises. You will work with widely-used deep learning tools, frameworks, and workflows to train and deploy neural network models on a fully-configured, GPU-accelerated workstation in the cloud. After a quick introduction to deep learning, you will advance to: building and deploying deep learning applications for image classification and object detection, modifying your neural networks to improve their accuracy and performance, and implementing the workflow you have learned on a final project. At the end of the workshop, you will have access to additional resources to create new deep learning applications on your own.

Duration: 8 hours
Price: free
Assessment type: Coding
Certification: Upon successful completion of the workshop, participants will receive NVIDIA DLI
Certification to recognize subject matter competency and support professional career growth.
Prerequisites: Familiarity with programming fundamentals such as functions and variables
Languages: English, Japanese, Korean, Chinese
Tools, libraries, and frameworks: Caffe, DIGITS

Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of the workshop, you will have an understanding of the fundamentals of deep learning and be able to:

  • Implement common deep learning workflows, such as image classification and object detection.
  • Experiment with data, training parameters, network structure, and other strategies to increase performance and capability of neural networks.
  • Integrate and deploy neural networks in your own applications to start solving sophisticated real-world problems.
