Young Roboticists Power Up Their Peers at FIRST Robotics Championships

With an eye toward increasing gender balance in the field, Grace, an NVIDIA intern last summer, has been busy teaching workshops for other FIRST students on the NVIDIA Jetson supercomputer and deep learning. She’s led a Deep Learning Institute lab on image classification with DIGITS and plans to host two more labs over the summer. “During my NVIDIA internship, I had great mentors and resources,” said Grace. “But I realized that many students don’t have the same access I did and don’t know how to get started with deep learning. AI and deep learning is critically important for robotics, not only for FIRST but the industry in general. ”
