MXNet is a flexible, open-source Deep Learning library that is popular for research prototyping and production. Together with the high-level Gluon API interface, Apache MXNet is a powerful alternative to TensorFlow and PyTorch.
This instructor-led, live training (online or onsite) is aimed at data scientists who wish to use Apache MXNet to build and deploy a deep learning model for image recognition.
By the end of this training, participants will be able to:
- Install and configure Apache MXNet and its components.
- Understand MXNet’s architecture and data structures.
- Use Apache MXNet’s low-level and high-level APIs to efficiently build neural networks.
- Build a convolutional neural network for image classification.
