NVIDIA's Deep Learning Institute (DLI) offers online and in-person courses on the latest techniques for designing, training, and deploying neural-network powered machine learning in a range of applications. As an Inception member, you'll have access to a wide variety of perks, including credits and exclusive courses.
By happy circumstance, Santa Clara-based chip maker NVIDIA finds itself in the position of being an artificial intelligence (AI) startup king maker. The company designs and manufactures the entire computing platform for deep learning, the fastest growing field in AI, building everything from graphics processing units (GPUs) to software to systems purpose-built for deep learning. As the name might suggest, GPUs were developed to improve the computer graphics experience by offloading certain computationally intense image processing tasks from the standard central processing unit (CPU). The particular strength of a GPU is performing large numbers of parallel floating point calculations. This helps computer screens to increase in detail and complexity without sacrificing system performance, and modern gaming would not be possible without it.
All NVIDIA Inception startups enter the program as Community members. By invitation, select startups may be elevated to Premier status if they can demonstrate that they have closed at least their Series A, are in production, use our tools and platforms and pass an internal review. NVIDIA Inception Premier members benefit from a dedicated relationship manager, DevRel support, increased marketing, and access to Premier-only events (such as business connections or VC introductions).
