Phase 1 – Challenge Course
During the first phase of this program, students take Udacity’s “Introduction to Deep Learning with PyTorch” course. The duration of this course is two months.
Program participants will receive support from community managers throughout their learning experience in this course, and will be part of a dynamic student community and network of scholars.
Phase 2 – Full Nanodegree Scholarship
The top 300 students from the first phase of the program will earn a full scholarship to Udacity’s Deep Learning Nanodegree program, where they’ll cover Convolutional and Recurrent Neural Networks, Generative Adversarial Networks, Deployment, and more.
Students will use PyTorch, and have access to GPUs to train models faster, as they learn from authorities like Sebastian Thrun, Ian Goodfellow, Jun-Yan Zhu, and Andrew Trask.
