Practicum AI

Practicum AI, an AI training program developed by Research Computing Training team, is a hands-on applied AI curriculum intended for students with limited coding and math background. Using hands-on exercises and graphically based, conceptual content, our hope is to support learners who seek to begin applied AI research.

NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute (DLI)

Nvidia DLI provides a variety of online education and training materials in AI, accelerated computing, and accelerated data science for developers, data science researchers, students, and educators.

Online Courses

The self-paced and hands-on online courses covers many AI topics. The education institutions can request a course code to cover the cost for up to 200 people.

HiPerGator users may contact IT-RC-AI@UFL.EDU for a promo code to take the online classes for free.

Educator Programs

NVIDIA DLI Free Teaching Kits

DLI Teaching Kits are co-developed by university professors/educators, industrial partners, and Nvidia engineers and scientists. The teaching kits come with lecture materials and hands-on exercises, quiz and exam sets. They can be used as they are or be integrated into teaching curriculums. The qualified educators applied for the teaching kits also receive the course code for online courses.

NVIDIA DLI Ambassador Program

The DLI Ambassador Program is designed for qualified university educator to be certified as DLI Instructors to deliver free DLI workshops at university campuses. Through the campus workshops, the students and staff can obtain the course certifications and add them on their resumes. The program and application are free.
