Aegis School of Data Science and NVIDIA join hands to develop skills for Applied Artificial Intelligence
Analyst firm IDC estimates that 80 percent of all applications will have an AI component by 2020
Aegis School of Data Science & Telecommunication and NVIDIA today announced a strategic partnership at the Data Science Congress to conduct imparting pieces of training on Artificial Intelligence (AI) for Corporates and Individuals. The purpose of this partnership is to build a large pool of skilled manpower in the Deep Learning space to fill the skill gaps.
This initiative will feature several courses for DL, ML, and AI, facilitated by Aegis School of Data Science and powered by NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute. The students will also be given access to NVIDIA’s proprietary technologies, software, labs, subject matter experts, engineers, and data scientists. This will help them develop skills for the future as well as today’s industry requirement.
“This partnership will achieve our mission to develop India as a major hub for Data Science, Big Data, Deep Learning, ML and AI skills and grow Aegis as the world-class Applied Data Science Institute,” said Bhupesh Daheria, CEO of Aegis School of Data Science. “The demand for ML and Deep Learning is growing, however, there is little understanding of how to apply these complex technologies in real-world applications, with NVDIA’s help of we believe in bridging this gap.”
Thanks to the era of NVIDIA’s GPU computing, 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 — and understand — the world around us in ways that mimic, and even surpass, our own.
Vishal Dhupar, Managing Director, South Asia, Nvidia “We stand on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. There is a huge need for developers who not only understand AI but know how to apply it. As an AI computer company, our cutting- edge technological innovation finds new ways of training the developers as well as the teaching and learning experience. Through this partnership, we aspire to create and develop skills that will help solve some of the world’s most challenging problems.”
Aegis will provide practical training on the use of Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning and Machine Learning tools & technology, training developers, data scientists, researchers, Analytics, Big Data, ML & AI professionals and existing Aegis students. The training will cover the fundamental tenets of deep learning such as using AI for object detection or image classification, applying this to determine the best approach to cancer treatment; Natural language processing, speech recognition etc.
