AI-403 Generative AI Basics

Course Description

Artificial intelligence has become an extremely important area for IT professionals and engineers in the past 10-20 years with the scientific breakthroughs and practical applications of deep learning and more recently of generative AI systems, especially with its Large Language Model (LLM) variant such as OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Google’s Bard. Due to its importance and impact on every aspect of our lives, understanding the concepts, functionalities and practical usage of AI systems is quickly becoming essential for all IT and other technical professionals as well as for managers with technical background.

This training focuses on Generative AI techniques and teaches participants the following topics (preliminary list):

  • Introduction to Generative AI
  • Variational Autoencoders
  • Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs)
  • Autoregressive Models
  • Diffusion Models
  • Transformers and General Pretrained Models (GPT)
  • Multimodal Models

Besides gaining a basic understanding of the theory of Generative AI models, students will also make extensive lab exercises using the Python based TensorFlow + Keros framework to see how these models work in practice.
