With Intel, Udacity Offers a Scholarship Program for Edge AI Development

IBL News | New York

Udacity announced yesterday in San Francisco the Intel Edge AI Scholarship Program and the Intel Edge AI for IoT Developers Nanodegree Program.

The pedagogical goal is to teach developers to accelerate the development and deployment of high-performance computer vision and deep learning solutions using Intel Distribution of OpenVINO toolkit (which allows deploying pre-trained deep learning models.)

In the first phase of the scholarship program, students will get access to the Intel Edge AI Fundamentals course, the first class of the Intel Edge AI for IoT Developers Nanodegree program.

Students who successfully complete this course will earn a full scholarship to the Intel Edge AI for IoT Developers Nanodegree program. The number of seats is limited to 750 students.

“With Udacity, we are training the next generation of AI developers to go where the data is generated in the physical world: at the Edge,” said Jonathan Ballon Intel Vice President and General Manager, Internet of Things Group. “Optimizing the direct deployment of models on edge devices requires knowledge of unique constraints like power, network bandwidth & latency, varying compute architectures and more.”

The deadline to apply is December 10.
