NVIDIA Deep Learning Fundamentals


Teaching You To Solve Problems With Deep Learning

Learn how to design, train, and deploy neural network-powered artificial intelligence in your applications.

NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute (DLI) offers hands-on training for developers, data scientists, and researchers looking to solve challenging problems with deep learning. DLI and IP EXPO Europe are excited to announce these one-day practical Deep Learning workshop on both days of IP EXPO Europe, Wednesday 4th and Thursday 5th October 2017 at ExCeL London.

Places come at a price of £385 per session.

There are two levels of workshop available, this page details the Fundamentals course for beginners, if you would like the Intermediate course for those with a higher level of experience in Deep Learning click here.

First Click REGISTER FREE for IP EXPO Europe and then select the NVIDIA Register & Training option to pay for the workshop after registration.



Data Scientists:
- Experts in collecting and analyzing data.
- May have experience with previous Machine Learning techniques.
- Needs to shift approach from hard-coded feature classifiers to data-driven deep neural networks.

Software Developers:
- Implements custom code for deep learning solutions.
- May also fill role of data scientist.
- Needs to learn how to integrate and optimize trained neural networks into apps/services for deployment.

System Architect:
- Domain expert in their field of study.
- May have experience with HPC / parallel computing.
- May also fill roles of data scientists and developer.
- Needs to learn how to apply deep learning in their field of study.


Wednesday 4th October & Thursday 5th October 2017
Location: Room SG13


Content level: Beginner
Pre-Requisites: Technical background and basic understanding of deep learning concepts

This hands-on introduction to deep learning is designed to take a learner from interest to ability. Attendees will train a neural network on a GPU within the first hour and have deployed a high performing network to production by the end of the day. Throughout the experience, learners will:

-          Implement common deep learning workflows such as Image Classification and Object Detection.
-          Manipulate how networks learn to improve performance using the DIGITS interface.
-          Modify internal layers of neural networks to adapt to new problems using the Caffe framework.
-          Deploy open-source and learner-trained networks to start solving real-world problems using pyCaffe and TensorRT.

DLI Workshop Attendee Instructions:

  • You must bring your own laptop to this workshop.
  • Create an account by going to https://nvlabs.qwiklab.com/ prior to getting to the workshop.
  • Make sure your laptop is set up prior to the workshop by following these steps:

- Ensure websockets runs smoothly on your laptop by going to http://websocketstest.com/
- Make sure that WebSockets work for you by seeing under Environment, WebSockets is supported and Data Receive, Send and Echo Test all check Yes under WebSockets (Port 80).
- If there are issues with WebSockets, try updating your browser or trying a different browser.  The labs will not run without WebSockets support
- Best browsers for the labs are Chrome, FireFox and Safari. The labs will run in IE but it is not an optimal experience.

IMPORTANT: Please remember to sign in to nvlabs.qwiklab.com using the same email address as for event registration, since class access is given based on the event registration list.
