Fundamentals of Deep Learning for Multi-GPUs

This workshop teaches you to apply techniques to train deep neural networks on multiple GPUs to shorten the training time required for data-intensive applications. You will work with widely used deep learning tools, frameworks, and workflows by performing neural network training on a fully configured GPU-accelerated workstation in the cloud. The workshop starts with a linear neuron, defining the loss function and optimization logic for gradient descent. It then teaches the concepts to transform single-GPU to Horovod multi-GPU implementation to reduce the complexity of writing efficient, distributed software and then concludes by teaching the techniques to improve the overall performance of the whole pipeline.

Duration: 8 hours
Assessment type: Coding
Certification: Upon successful completion of the workshop, participants will receive NVIDIA DLI Certification to recognize subject matter competency and support professional career growth

Deep Learning for Autonomous Vehicles - Perception

This workshop teaches you to apply deep learning techniques to design, train, and deploy deep neural networks for autonomous vehicles using the NVIDIA DRIVE development platform through a series of hands-on exercises. You will work with widely-used deep learning tools, frameworks, and workflows by performing neural network training on a fully configured GPU-accelerated workstation in the cloud. The workshop starts with an introduction of Sensor Abstraction Layer (SAL) which is required for software to interface with the hardware sensors. After covering SAL and concepts on DRIVE AGX, we teach you the steps required to do semantic segmentation on DRIVE AGX and conclude by teaching techniques to leverage TensorRT, a high-performance neural network inference engine for production deployment of deep learning applications, to optimize, validate, and deploy trained neural network for inference in a self-driving car application.

Duration: 8 hours
Certification: No
Prerequisites: Experience with CNNs
Tools, libraries, and frameworks: TensorFlow, DIGITS, TensorRT

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the workshop, you will have an understanding of:

  • Integrating sensor inputs using the DriveWorks software stack
  • Training a semantic segmentation neural network
  • Optimizing, validatating, and deploying a trained neural network using TensorRT
