This workshop is offered as part of the NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute (DLI), which offers instructor-led training in deep learning across the country. Instructors cover the fundamental concepts of deep learning, best practices for application, approaches to object detection, deep learning for image segmentation, and neural network deployment. To take full advantage of the workshop, attendees should have some familiarity with Python. Workshop participants must bring their own laptop to the event in order to run the DLI Lab.
