Upcoming free Fundamentals of Deep Learning workshop in collaboration with NVIDIA

The Center for Advanced Research Computing is partnering with the NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute (DLI) to offer a free Fundamentals of Deep Learning workshop on July 28, 2021 from 9:00 to 5:00 PM PST.

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

In this workshop, you’ll learn how deep learning works through hands-on exercises in computer vision and natural language processing. You’ll train deep learning models from scratch, learning tools and tricks to achieve highly accurate results. You’ll also learn to leverage freely available, state-of-the-art pre-trained models to save time and get your deep learning application up and running quickly. Free to USC students, faculty, and staff - please register with your USC email address.

Workshop details, learning objectives, and a sample workshop agenda can be found here.

You can register for this free workshop here or on our Events page.
