As per tradition, GTC is also one of the best timings for participants of all academic/career stages to get the most up to date knowledge about things covering the GPU and AI spectrum presented by NVIDIA’s own subject-matter experts coming from the Deep Learning Institute (DLI) and Academy department. Specifically, students and early career professionals can enroll in introductory courses like deep learning and robotics sessions “The Right Formula for AI Success: Insights from AI High Performer”, “Deep Learning Demystified” as well as the “5 Steps for Starting a Career in AI” while experienced developers can go for DLI courses lasting for 20 free, short-day sessions and 17 full-day workshops, to dive deeper into AI and earn a DLI certificate demonstrating subject-matter competency. From Feb. 21 until the end of March, new members of NVIDIA’s Developer Program can get access to an additional complementary GTC DLI course when they sign up.
