About This Course
Get into Python, machine learning, computer vision, and neural networks with the NVIDIA® Jetson Nano™. You'll have a small computing powerhouse, a webcam, and the resources to push Python further than ever before. Train the machine to train itself, and it will be recognizing image features before you know it. Cat or croissant? Labradoodle or fried chicken? Healthy body or early cancer detection? As you progress through cutting-edge projects from both NVIDIA and iD Tech, you'll see how starting with the Jetson Nano for your machine learning journey can lead to insights and even breakthroughs in AI, robotics, and advanced engineering fields. From detecting objects in pictures and recognizing actions, to creating code that can react to different visual stimuli, you'll build a portfolio that will leave a lasting impression—and you'll gain an official certificate from NVIDIA. Upon completion of this program, NVIDIA will review each student’s final project to determine eligibility for the certificate.
