Why study this course

In this course, you’ll learn about AWS’s deep learning solutions, including scenarios where deep learning makes sense and how deep learning works.

You’ll learn how to run deep learning models on the cloud using Amazon Sage Maker and the MXNet framework. You’ll also learn to deploy your deep learning models using services like AWS Lambda while designing intelligent systems on AWS.

This intermediate-level course is delivered through a mix of instructor-led training (ILT), hands-on labs, and group exercises.

Please note: students are required to bring their own laptop/tablet and power cable for this course.
