The NVIDIA DLI Teaching Kits include multimedia and downloadable instructional materials that provide the foundation for understanding and building expertise in AI. Co-developed with university faculty, courses include Accelerated Computing, Data Science, Deep Learning, and Edge AI and Robotics. Each Teaching Kit includes some combination of:
- Lecture slides
- Lecture videos
- Hands-on labs/coding projects/solutions
- Online DLI courses with certification
- GPU cloud resources
Qualified educators can also receive codes for free access to DLI online, self-paced training for themselves and their students.
NVIDIA’s Deep Learning Institute (DLI) delivers practical, hands-on training and certification in AI at the edge for developers, educators, students, and lifelong learners. NVIDIA offers two certificate tracks— Jetson AI Specialist that anyone can complete and Jetson AI Ambassadorship for educators and instructors.
Jetson AI Specialist
This certificate, open to anyone, recognizes competency in Jetson and AI using a hands-on, project-based assessment. While this track is ideal for advanced learners to build on their existing AI knowledge, beginners can follow the in-depth video tutorials and get up to speed quickly.
Jetson AI Ambassador
This certificate is for educators and recognizes competency in teaching AI on Jetson. This track is ideal for educators or instructors who want to be fully prepared to teach AI to their students. In addition to the instructor certificate, NVIDIA offers numerous instructional tools and many other benefits.
This self-paced, online course is designed for developers, researchers, students, and hobbyists. The goal of the course is to build foundational AI skills to enable people to get creative with the Jetson Nano. The course uses Jupyter iPython notebooks and your own Jetson Nano (hardware not included) to build a deep learning classification project with computer vision models. In this course, participants learn to:
- Set up the Jetson Nano and camera
- Collect image data for classification models
- Annotate image data for regression models
- Train a neural network on your data to create your own models
- Run inference on the Jetson Nano with the models you create
