Fundamentals of Deep Learning for Computer Vision – Aarhus

The Alexandra Institute partners with NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute (DLI) to offer hands-on training to developers, data scientists and researchers looking to solve real-world problems with deep learning across diverse industries such as self-driving cars, healthcare, online services and robotics.

In this hands-on course, you will learn the basics of deep learning by training and deploying neural networks.

You will learn how 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.
  • Deploy your neural networks to start solving real-world problems.

Upon completion, you will be able to start solving problems on your own with deep learning.

Prerequisites: Programming skills (C/C++, Python or similar)

Duration: 8 hours

Framework: Caffe, NVIDIA DIGITS™

Language: English
