Fundamentals of Artificial Intelligence (Deep Learning) Including Generative AI Models


Course Number: AI-110
Duration: 5 days (32.5 hours)
Format: Live, hands-on

AI Fundamentals Training Overview

This Fundamentals of Artificial Intelligence/Deep Learning/Generative AI Models training course teaches attendees how to use the Python programming language to build modern machine learning (ML) applications that incorporate the latest ML technologies such as generative AI, deep learning, natural language processing, and computer vision.

Learners are introduced to the basic concepts of Python, such as variables, data types, functions, and control flow. They also learn how to use the Anaconda computing environment, which comes with many valuable tools for data science.
