Intel Vision Accelerator Design Products work by offloading AI inference workloads to purpose-built accelerator cards that feature either an array of Intel Movidius Vision Processing Units, or a high-performance Intel Arria 10 FPGA.

Deep learning inference accelerators scale to the needs of businesses using Intel Vision solutions, whether they are adopting deep learning AI applications in the data center, in on premise servers or inside edge devices.

With the OpenVINO toolkit, developers can easily extend their investment in deep learning inference applications on Intel CPUs and integrated GPUs to these new accelerator designs, saving time and money.

This session primarily focus on Vision Accelerators introduction, optimizing the AI inference workloads using HDDL-L/R products and ISV case studies.

About Intel AI Course

Do you have a real-world problem that you want to solve using AI? Whether you are an experienced data scientist or new to the field, this course takes a hands-on approach in helping you understand the data science workflow, how to use Intel’s AI portfolio of processors and optimized software and apply them to the challenge you are facing. The course uses an enterprise image classification problem and provides lectures for each stage in the process accompanied by Jupyter* notebooks that walk you through the implementation.

Upon completion, you have the option to receive an Intel® AI Course Completion Certificate**

Please go through the coursehere.

Topics include:

  • An overview of Intel’s AI portfolio with an emphasis on solving deep learning problems
  • Dataset preparation for model consumption – including preprocessing and data augmentation techniques
  • Decision metrics for choosing a framework and network (topology)
  • How to train and deploy deep learning models using the Intel AI portfolio

By the end of this course, you will have practical knowledge of:

  • Preparing a dataset for model consumption
  • Training a deep learning model using TensorFlow* with Intel optimizations
  • Deploying on the CPU, Integrated Graphics and Intel® Neural Compute Stick 2 (Intel® NCS2) using the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ Toolkit
