Are you passionate about deep learning and have ideas that could solve real-world problems?
Over the next few months, we're hosting a series of activities to help you elevate your DL and computer vision application development skills using the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit.
We're hosting a monthly survey/quiz to test your knowledge of the OpenVINO toolkit. Participate in one or all for a chance to win one of hundreds of Intel® Neural Compute Stick 2, a plug and play development kit that offers high performance and low power for AI inferencing. The NCS2 is one of the many great tools to use when exploring an application using OpenVINO.
Participate and Win!
