Deep Learning AI Techniques for Executives, Developers and Managers Training Course


21 hours (usually 3 days including breaks)


There are no specific requirements needed to attend this course.



Deep learning is becoming a principal component of future product design that wants to incorporate artificial intelligence at the heart of their models. Within the next 5 to 10 years, deep learning development tools, libraries, and languages will become standard components of every software development toolkit. So far Google, Sales Force, Facebook, Amazon have been successfully using deep learning AI to boost their business. Applications ranged from automatic machine translation, image analytics, video analytics, motion analytics, generating targeted advertisement and many more.

This coursework is aimed for those organizations who want to incorporate Deep Learning as very important part of their product or service strategy. Below is the outline of the deep learning course which we can customize for different levels of employees/stakeholders in an organization.

Target Audience:

( Depending on target audience, course materials will be customized)
