Nvidia seeds education with deep learning teaching kit

December 07, 2016 // By Julien Happich
With demand for graduates with AI skills booming, GPU manufacturer Nvidia has released a deep learning teaching kit to help educators give their students hands on experience with GPU-accelerated computing.

Co-developed with deep-learning pioneer Yann LeCun , and largely based on his deep learning course at New York University, the kit provides a wealth of teaching content that allows educators to incorporate deep learning on GPUs in new and existing courses.

Delivered through Nvidia's GPU Educators Program , the kit was co-developed with academic partners to combine the latest industry trends and applications, fundamental theory and tested teaching techniques.

The effort is spearheaded by our NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute , which helps developers around the world learn how to design, train and deploy neural network-powered artificial intelligence in their applications.
