Fundamentals of Deep Learning for Computer Vision

Presented by SGInnovate, NVIDIA & NSCC

Learn about the basics of Deep Learning and the latest technologies available in this one-day workshop. Suitable for beginners with no / minimal coding experience.

Led by experienced instructors, you can expect to learn the latest deep learning techniques for designing and deploying neural network-powered machine learning across a variety of application domains.

In the course, participants will learn 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

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, followed by modifying your neural networks to improve their accuracy and performance, and finish by implementing the workflow that 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.
