Developing Curricula for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics


The DeCAIR Project in cooperation with NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute, and Jordan Joint Chapter of the IEEE Computer Society and Computational Intelligence Society held a workshop entitled Fundamentals of Deep Learning. The workshop was given by NVIDIA Learning Institute Ambassador Dr. Manal Jalloul (American University of Beirut “AUB” ) where the following topics were covered:

- Fundamental techniques and tools required to train a deep learning model,
- Common deep learning data types and model architectures,
- Enhancing datasets through data augmentation to improve model accuracy
- Leveraging transfer learning between models to achieve efficient results with less data and computation.
The training workshop took place at the School of Engineering Labs / University of Jordan on May 30th, 2022 and it was also available online through Zoom for both students and faculty.
