Deep Learning Workshop with Dedicated Computing, NVIDIA, and MSOE
Waukesha, WI – [04/05/2017] – Dedicated Computing is co-hosting a Deep Learning Institute workshop in collaboration with NVIDIA and Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE). The workshop will take place at MSOE on April 13, 2017.
Deep learning is a new area of machine learning that seeks to use algorithms, big data, and parallel computing to enable real-world applications and deliver results. Machines are now able to learn at the speed, accuracy, and scale required for true artificial intelligence. This technology is used to improve self-driving cars, aid mega-city planners, and help discover new drugs to cure disease.
The workshop will feature NVIDIA Deep Learning instructor Jonathan Bentz, who will be leading an opening seminar, an applications lab and a Q&A session. Attendees will explore fundamental concepts of deep learning and discuss real-world examples of its use in industry. They will also solidify the concepts with a hands-on lab where they can train, modify and test their own deep neural network on an image classification problem.
“Providing insight on new technologies to the community and businesses helps drive the next wave of innovation,” said Jeff Krueger, Director of Systems Engineering at Dedicated Computing. “Exposure to this rapidly changing technology through hands-on sessions with NVIDIA is a key part of transferring this knowledge to area leaders. We are excited to be part of this effort and to be involved in a very dynamic and evolving capability.”
“The Deep Learning Institute workshop is one of several initiatives underway at MSOE that will further expand our reach in the area of applied computing and artificial intelligence,” said Dr. Steven C. Bialek, interim vice president of academics at MSOE. “Based on partnerships with industry leaders like NVIDIA and Dedicated Computing, MSOE will introduce a new software engineering specialization in artificial intelligence and machine learning. In addition, we’ll launch a series of quarterly AI professional development workshops.”
Attendance is by invitation only. Attendees will include a choice group of MSOE alumni, as well as employees of select area businesses.
