Accelerating Data Science with NVIDIA

Presented by SGInnovate and NIVIDIA


Many tech startups are aware of and are already using NVIDIA's technologies. However, an important question faced by these startups is how these technologies can be best utilised to scale efficiently.

The NVIDIA Inception team has put together a series of workshops to help tackle these challenges.

NVIDIA workshops are designed for technology leaders and their development team, to be educated on strategic applications of Data Science. The workshop will cover the rapid development of key skills and hands-on experience.

These technical workshops will cover some of NVIDIA's key SDKs and hands-on training with their technical experts and are best suited for the startup's development team to attend.

Date: 27 July 2022, Wednesday
Time: 1:00pm - 4:00pm (Singapore Time / UTC +8)
