Overview

This hands-on workshop teaches you the foundational elements of intelligent video analytics (IVA) by integrating deep learning models and algorithms into a ready-to-use NVIDIA DeepStream pipeline. First, you’ll gain an in-depth understanding of data normalization, annotation, and metadata formatting in IVA applications, followed by a fundamental understanding of object detection in video frames. You’ll proceed to train object tracking models and learn how to utilize temporal features of videos to achieve more efficient detection models. You’ll also learn to deploy and accelerate the development of your IVA application by plugging deep neural networks into an end-to-end stream processing pipeline using the DeepStream framework. Throughout the workshop, you’ll get hands-on coding experience using a live GPU-accelerated environment to deploy and train your models. At the end, you’ll have access to additional resources to design and deploy IVA applications on your own.

How do QA’s virtual classroom courses work?

Our virtual classroom courses allow you to access award-winning classroom training, without leaving your home or office. Our learning professionals are specially trained on how to interact with remote attendees and our remote labs ensure all participants can take part in hands-on exercises wherever they are.

We use the WebEx video conferencing platform by Cisco. Before you book, check that you meet the WebEx system requirements and run a test meeting (more details in the link below) to ensure the software is compatible with your firewall settings. If it doesn’t work, try adjusting your settings or contact your IT department about permitting the website.

How do QA’s online courses work?

QA online courses, also commonly known as distance learning courses or elearning courses, take the form of interactive software designed for individual learning, but you will also have access to full support from our subject-matter experts for the duration of your course. When you book a QA online learning course you will receive immediate access to it through our e-learning platform and you can start to learn straight away, from any compatible device. Access to the online learning platform is valid for one year from the booking date.

All courses are built around case studies and presented in an engaging format, which includes storytelling elements, video, audio and humour. Every case study is supported by sample documents and a collection of Knowledge Nuggets that provide more in-depth detail on the wider processes.
