NVIDIA Image Classification Workshop: NUS-NUHS-MIT Datathon

July 2018


I gave a workshop on Image Classification as an NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute Instructor at the first NUS-NUHS-MIT datathon.

Course Overview

“Businesses worldwide are using artificial intelligence (AI) to solve their greatest challenges. Healthcare professionals use AI to enable more accurate, faster diagnoses in patients. Retail businesses use it to offer personalized customer shopping experiences. Automakers use it to make personal vehicles, shared mobility, and delivery services safer and more efficient. Deep learning is a powerful AI approach that uses multi-layered artificial neural networks to deliver state-of-the-art accuracy in tasks such as object detection, speech recognition, and language translation. Using deep learning, computers can learn and recognize patterns from data that are considered too complex or subtle for expert-written software.

In this course, participants will learn how deep learning works through hands-on exercises in computer vision and natural language processing. Participants will train deep learning models from scratch, learning tools and tricks to achieve highly accurate results. Participants will 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.”
