Difficulty:

Medium

Learn how to leverage deep neural networks (DNN) within the deep-learning workflow to solve a real-world image classification problem using NVIDIA DIGITS. You'll walk through the process of data preparation, model definition, model training and troubleshooting, validation testing and strategies for improving model performance using GPUs. On completion of this lab, you will be able to use NVIDIA DIGITS to train a DNN on your own image classification application.
