Today’s forward-thinking enterprises aspire to reach the next level of AI/ML-enabled technologies. From industries such as healthcare, retail, and financial services to public sector agencies, many organizations striving to leverage big data with advanced ML technologies seek on-ramps for accelerated data science capabilities. Fortunately, enterprises can achieve the progress they envision by investing in relevant skills, hardware solutions, and workforce Python training.

leverage big data with advanced ML technologies

Among the most widely used programming languages, Python offers a fundamental data science key that unlocks the door to a rapidly expanding field of advanced technologies. Python learning pathways can equip learners to use Python for various functions, including:

  • Data wrangling.
  • Data visualization.
  • Statistics and probability.
  • Classification.
  • Natural language processing.
  • Sentiment analysis.

The Big Data Challenge

In addition to proficiencies in big data, MLOps, natural language processing, and backend engineering, these skills can supercharge teams’ efforts to deploy emerging technologies that will help them discover patterns and insights in today’s burgeoning data supplies. Sources such as IoT, streaming media, and social media platforms are rich founts of intelligence that can catapult organizations to higher planes of: 

  • Operational efficiency.
  • Research and development.
  • Supply chain management.
  • Patient care.
  • Targeted marketing.
  • Customer service. 

However, achieving these data-driven advances requires applying the skills necessary for managing big data—including building scalable models and storage—and developing advanced technologies such as deep learning. 

The Deep Learning Solution

Deep learning’s facility with unstructured data, multidimensional data sets, and unsupervised training offers organizations a powerful tool for developing complex models using big data. Applications for deep learning span sectors and functions, including satellite image classification to fraud detection and drug discovery. Deep learning can enable agencies to predict public health emergencies, healthcare professionals to practice personalized medicine, and manufacturers to anticipate equipment maintenance needs and safety concerns. However, deep learning demands massive data sets to train complex neural networks, slowing model training and processing speeds to crawls. Fortunately, GPUs and CPUs hasten computing to deliver real-time data processing.

The GPU Advantage

While CPUs effectively speed processing, GPUs are especially suited for ML projects. By enabling accelerated computing, GPUs power innovative AI/ML innovations, such as image recognition. These capabilities are the driving forces behind some of the latest groundbreaking technologies across industries. For example, through a partnership with NVIDIA, one of the world’s largest GPU manufacturers, Deutsche Bank has announced an ambitious plan to accelerate the use of AI and ML in financial services for purposes such as improved risk management, speech AI, fraud detection, enhanced customer service, and efficiency. In addition, NVIDIA will be among the first companies engaging the nascent TSMC Arizona facility to produce semiconductors. The multinational tech company has also joined forces with Lockheed Martin to develop the Earth Observations Digital Twin, an innovative and efficient approach to monitoring global environmental conditions for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). 

Python, big data, and deep learning skills will provide the knowledge base for next-generation data initiatives

NVIDIA supports such initiatives with its curing-edge Omniverse platform, which uses GPUs and advanced visualization to produce 3-D simulations of environments and systems. In addition, NVIDIA’s GPUs have been instrumental in Data Society’s work with large government agencies and government contractors supporting bold technology initiatives. 

The capabilities GPUs offer rely upon a range of human skill sets that learners can acquire through NVIDIA’s Deep Learning course offerings, which Data Society delivers as an official NVIDIA partner. These courses cover subjects such as:

  • Deep learning fundamentals.
  • AI for predictive maintenance.
  • Building intelligent recommender systems.
  • Applications of AI for anomaly detection.
  • Accelerated computing with CUDA Python
  • Accelerated data science.

Accelerated Progress

While big data’s enterprise value is widely acknowledged, technologies that can help organizations unlock this potential require specialized tools and techniques. Training that empowers workforces with Python, big data, and deep learning skills will provide the knowledge base for next-generation data initiatives. And, with GPUs fueling and accelerating these projects, organizations can keep pace with enterprise technology’s swift advance into the future.
