The need for deep learning skills is increasing as more and more companies and industries hop on the bandwagon. Launch a little more than a year ago, NVIDIA’s Deep Learning Institute (DLI) has already trained tens of thousands of students, developers and data scientists.
And the company is expanding its DLI offerings with:
- New partnerships: Team up with Booz Allen Hamilton and deeplearning.ai to train thousands of students, developers and government specialists in artificial intelligence (AI).
- New University Ambassador Program: Instructors worldwide can teach students critical job skills and practical applications of AI at no cost.
- New courses: More courses are added to teach domain-specific applications of deep learning for finance, natural language processing, robotics, video analytics, and self-driving cars.
These moves will certainly propel NVIDIA towards its goal of training 100,000 developers in deep learning and AI technologies this year.
“The world faces an acute shortage of data scientists and developers who are proficient in deep learning, and we’re focused on addressing that need,” said Greg Estes, Vice President of Developer Programs at NVIDIA.
DLI is teaming with Booz Allen Hamilton to train employees and government personnel, including members of the US Air Force. DLI and Booz Allen Hamilton will provide hands-on training for data scientists to solve challenging problems in healthcare, cybersecurity and defence.
To help teach students practical AI techniques to improve their job skills and prepare them to take on difficult computing challenges, the new NVIDIA University Ambassador Program prepares college instructors to teach DLI courses to their students at no cost. NVIDIA is already working with professors at several universities, including Arizona State, Harvard, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and UCLA.
To increase availability of AI training worldwide, DLI recently signed new training delivery partnerships with Skyline ATS in the US, Boston in the UK and Emmersive in India.
