What we're about

SVIEF AI Tech Training Camp aims to provide career guidance and technical skill training for engineers to transition their skills or even transition their careers to stay current and competitive in the era of Artificial Intelligence. It also provides an educational platform for people to bring technology tools such as machine learning into their daily management tasks.

The info session features an AI Talk presented by Dr. Zack Ling, Senior Scientist of IBM Almaden Research Center and a comprehensive introduction and announcement of the AI Training Spring Semester Syllabus as well as direction to sign up for the course. (All attendees to the info session will receive a 20% off discount code at door.)

Info Session Date & Venue: 6pm to 8pm at 3120 Scott Blvd, Santa Clara, 95054. Please kindly register on https://sviefaitechinfo.eventbrite.com (https://sviefaitechinfo.eventbrite.com/).

The Spring Semester course offers four 2-day workshops that are designed to incorporate 4 vertical AI tracks including TensorFlow, NLP, Machine Learning and Computer Vision* as well as complimentary On-demand Topic and Career & Resume Workshop. On-demand topic will cover topics outside of the four pre-designed tracks such as Face Recognition, Predicative Analysis, etc. Students can also schedule one-on-one resume workshop with our mentor after each class.

Students start from learning basic concepts and then advance to intermediate and advanced level that covers coding workshop and practical case study.

*AI Tracks may subject to change. Final syllabus will be announced at info session.
