Cisco Introduction to Artificial Intelligence (CIAI)

In this 2-day course, Cisco Introduction to Artificial Intelligence (CIAI) v1.0, we will introduce the learner to the Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning essentials in addition to compute platforms such as Cisco UCS, through a combination of lecture and hands-on labs. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are opening up new ways for enterprises to solve complex problems, but they will also have a profound effect on the underlying infrastructure and processes of IT. AI/ML is a dominant trend in the enterprise with the ubiquity of large amounts of observed data, the rise of distributed computing frameworks and the prevalence of large hardware-accelerated computing infrastructure became essential.
