Ready To Get Certified in Edge AI?
Here Are Your Prerequisites
The Intel® Edge AI Certification program helps you to build your skills in making AI apps. You’ll gain hands-on experience with edge AI use cases that cover smart city, object detection, loss prevention, and now healthcare.
We want to challenge you to complete the certification within 30 days for a chance to win valuable prizes!
But first, do you have what it takes?
For phase one, make sure you have, or can acquire, the base knowledge needed to complete the coursework.
Prerequisites for the Intel® Edge AI Certification Program
Intermediate Python. If you know the basics of Python and feel comfortable with it, you’re almost there! If not, check out these links:
- Python tutorial in the official documentation
- LearnPython website with interactive tutorials
Introduction to Computer Science and Programming in Python, an MIT course published as video lectures with supporting materials.
Linux Command Line (bash terminal)., If you know how to enter simple bash commands inside the Jupyter environment you’re ready. To round out your knowledge, check out this command line tutorial.
Deep-learning layers and convolutional neural network (CNN-based) architectures. To complete the certification, we’re assuming you know the basics of deep learning, and if not, here’s an overview to get your started. As you progress, You should become familiar with layers such as dense, convolution, pooling, and recurrent. We’re using the SqueezeNet, ssd-mobilenet, and generative adversarial network (GAN) architectures.
OpenCV. OpenCV is a real-time computer vision library. Before the training, you should know how to load an image or video, and how to resize, convert color space, and do simple processing. If you haven’t used OpenCV before, check out these first four tutorials.
OpenVINO™ Toolkit. The Intel® Edge AI Certification program will rely heavily on this toolkit for deep learning inferencing, optimization, and deployment of your AI models. We recommend downloading and familiarizing yourself ahead of time to make getting started easier.
