Get Started with Machine Learning

If you are looking to get started with AI, but don’t know how, the SparkFun DLI Kit for NVIDIA Jetson Nano has been created specifically for NVIDIA’s complimentary, self-paced Deep Learning Institute (DLI) course.

In the course, you will learn to collect image data and use it to train, optimize, and deploy AI models for custom tasks like recognizing hand gestures, and image regression for locating a key point in an image. Everything needed for this course has been included in the SparkFun DLI Kit for NVIDIA Jetson Nano. For those who already have a NVIDIA Jetson Nano, the DLI Kit is available with or without the NVIDIA Jetson Nano.

Ready to take the next step with Machine Learning?

Once you've learned the basics of machine learning through the DLI course and kit, start creating projects to help out around the house with the SparkFun Machine Learning at Home Kit.

Designed as an extension of the NVIDIA DLI Course Kit, this kit incorporates machine output and interaction to help you create even more interesting machine learning projects such as a pet feeder, smart kitchen assistant and personalized lighting.
