A laptop (macOS preferred but not required if using AWS) with the latest stable build of Apache MXNet with Python support installed and a GitHub account and an AWS account

您将学到什么 (What you'll learn)

Gain a foundational understanding of deep learning and learn how to set up and install MXNet, including on AWS GPU clusters, and use it for data ingestion, model training, use of multiple GPUs, model fine tuning, deployment in AWS Lambda, AWS Elastic Container Service, and AWS Green Grass

描述 (Description)


模块1. 深度学习的背景知识

模块2. 演示在AWS上如何设置AMI、CloudFormation模版和其他深度学习框架

模块3. 揭开MXNet的面纱看看(MXNet内部)

模块4. 上手使用MXNet:NDArrays、Symbols和训练深度学习神经网络的机制。

模块5. 上手MXNet:针对计算机视觉和推荐引擎的应用例子

Deep learning continues to push the state of the art in domains such as computer vision, natural language understanding, and recommendation engines. One of the key reasons for this progress is the availability of highly flexible and developer-friendly deep learning frameworks.

Damon Deng offers an introduction to the powerful and scalable deep learning framework Apache MXNet. You’ll gain hands-on experience using Apache MXNet with preconfigured Deep Learning AMIs and CloudFormation Templates to help speed your development and leave able to quickly spin up AWS GPU clusters to train at record speeds.


  • Background on deep learning
  • A walk-through on setting up AMIs, CloudFormation Templates and other deep learning frameworks on AWS
  • A peek under the Apache MXNet hood (Apache MXNet internals) and a comparison with other deep learning frameworks
  • Hands on with Apache MXNet: NDArrays, symbols, and the mechanics of training deep neural networks
  • Hands on with Apache MXNet: Application examples targeting computer vision and recommendation engines
