From finding the best sushi near you to improving the manufacturing process of industrial components to making the car you drive safer, AI is advancing convenience, productivity and reliability across industries.

But taking advantage of the power of AI is not feasible without a skilled workforce. In fact, industry research indicates that lack of AI skills is the primary reason companies are unable to achieve business value with AI.

This is why companies and government agencies around the world are swarming the job market to hire developers, data scientists, engineers and researchers with AI expertise. But there just aren’t enough AI-trained developers to meet the demand.

To help bridge that gap, NVIDIA created the Deep Learning Institute in 2016 to train developers with hands-on courses in both fundamental and advanced AI topics. In that time, more than 183,000 students have taken advantage of this program to advance their skills.

Today, DLI is expanding its portfolio with a dozen new courses. Among the instructor-led workshops:

Onsite workshops are one of the most effective ways to train teams of developers and data scientists. DLI has delivered instructor-led workshops on-site at organizations as diverse as Adobe, Baker Hughes, Booz Allen Hamilton, Cisco, Groupe PSA, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Plus, DLI is working with companies like Lockheed Martin to provide this training at multiple sites across their enterprise.

“Lockheed Martin Corporation is committed to providing our employees with access to advanced training and tools,” said Matt Tarascio, chief data and analytics officer at Lockheed Martin. “The outstanding instructors and material of NVIDIA’s DLI program have been instrumental in helping to accelerate the adoption of modern data-driven AI across the corporation in applications such as deep learning, computer vision, natural language processing, intelligent video analytics and more.”

In addition to in-person training, DLI launched new online, self-paced courses on:

Many of the courses offer a certificate of competency to support professional growth. Plus, DLI offers resources to universities including free DLI Teaching Kits to bring AI skills to their classrooms and the DLI Ambassador Program to teach DLI courses to students for free.
