Building on the Practicum AI (Beginner) workshops, our Practicum AI (Intermediate) series provides a broad overview of the different kinds of deep learning systems in use today. The learning experiences in this series will cover the basics of Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs), Natural Language Processing (NLP), Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs), Transformers, and Transfer Learning.


MONAI Label for Medical Imaging

MONAI Label is an open-source medical-imaging-specific tool for both AI-assisted annotation and building your own AI annotation models. This tutorial will have two parts: a) in-depth MONAI Label introduction; b) step-by-step demos on HiperGator.


Nvidia DLI Workshop: Applications of AI for Anomaly Detection

Data integrity is critical to research and business. AI models can be trained and deployed to automatically analyze datasets, define “normal behavior,” and identify breaches in patterns quickly and effectively. These models can then be used to predict future anomalies. With massive amounts of data available online and across research domains and subtle distinctions between normal and abnormal patterns, it’s critical to use AI to quickly detect anomalies that pose a threat.
