NVIDIA, Yann LeCun Announce Deep Learning Teaching Kit

With demand for graduates with AI skills booming, we’ve released the NVIDIA Deep Learning Teaching Kit to help educators give their students hands on experience with GPU-accelerated computing. The kit آ— co-developed with deep-learning pioneer Yann LeCun, and largely based on his deep learning course at New York University آ— was announced آ Monday at the NIPS machine learning conference in Barcelona. Thanks to the rapid development of NVIDIA GPUs, training deep neural networks is more efficient than ever in terms of both time and resource cost. The result is an AI boom that has given machines the ability to perceive آ— and understand آ— the world around us in ways that mimic, and even surpass, our own.
