Intel and Udacity launch Intel Edge AI for IoT Developers Training Program

Intel and Udacity launche Intel Edge AI for IoT Developers Training Program

Intel announced the launch of Intel Edge AI for IoT Developers Nanodegree training Program.

Based on Intel's Distribution of OpenVINO toolkit, the program intends to train developers in deep learning and computer vision for artificial intelligence (AI) models at the edge.

Intel is trying to address workforce gap in global edge computing market which is forecasted to reach $1.12 trillion by 2023, notes the announcement.

Executive Opinion

Intel vice president and general manager, Internet of Things Group, Jonathan Ballon, said, "Historically, students have learned how to build and deploy deep learning models for the cloud. With Udacity, we are training AI developers to go where the data is generated in the physical world: the edge. Optimizing direct deployment of models on edge devices requires knowledge of unique constraints like power, network bandwidth and latency, varying compute architectures and more. The skills this course delivers will allow developers – and companies that hire them – to implement learnings on real-world applications across a variety of fields."

CEO of Udacity, Gabe Dalporto, said, "This program is part of Udacity’s commitment to provide training for 1 million developers worldwide. Our collaboration with Intel will open the doors for students to learn deployment of cutting-edge AI technologies at the edge and aid those with limited access to educational resources to grow in their fields."

Intel Edge AI for IoT Developers Nanodegree Program

Upon completion of the nano degree program will receive a certification from Udacity. The program intends to equip developers with a practitioner-level skill set in delivering AI at the edge. Students who completed Intel Edge AI Fundamentals Course in 2.5-month fundamentals course were also awarded nano degree scholarships.

The program allows developers to deploy pre-trained deep learning models through a high-level C++ or Python inference engine API integrated with application logic, notes the announcement.
