Good news for folks looking to learn about the latest AI development techniques: Nvidia is now allowing the general public to access the online workshops it provides through its Deep Learning Institute (DLI).

The GPU giant today announced today that selected workshops in the DLI catalog will be open to everybody. These workshops previously were available only to companies that wanted specialized training for their in-house developers, or to folks who had attended the company’s GPU Technology Conferences.

Two of the open courses will take place next month, including “Fundamentals of Accelerated Computing with CUDA Python,” which explores developing parallel workloads with CUDA and NumPy and cost $500. There is also “Applications of AI for Predictive Maintenance,” which explores technologies like XGBoost, LSTM, Keras, and Tensorflow, and costs $700. Certificates are available for those who complete both workshops.

The price seems a little steep to me, but it may be worth checking out, since it includes GPU-accelerated development cloud compute services.

Databricks provides this course on Databricks Lakehouse.

In this course, you’ll discover how the Databricks Lakehouse Platform can help you compete in the world of big data and artificial intelligence. In the first half of the course, we’ll introduce you to foundational concepts in big data, explain key roles and abilities to look for when building data teams, and familiarize you with all parts of a complete data landscape. In the second half, we’ll review how the Databricks Lakehouse Platform can help your organization streamline workflows, break down silos, and make the most out of your data.

Please note: This course provides a high-level overview of big data concepts and the Databricks Lakehouse platform. It does not contain hands-on labs or technical deep dives into Databricks functionality.

In this step-by-step tutorial by Kevin Stratvert, learn how to create dynamic and interactive Excel dashboards. With a dashboard, you can showcase the most important information and key performance indicators (KPIs) that your organization cares about.

Best of all, you only need is out of the box Microsoft Excel – no plug-ins, etc.

Caching can make your website run faster, it can improve your desktop application, and it can reduce the stress on your database.

Basically, if you figure out caching, you can dramatically improve how well your application scales. In this video, we are going to look at how to use Redis to quickly and easily cache our data. I think you will be shocked by how easy this turns out to be.

Tim Corey shows us how to get started.
