Announcing Gen AI 360: Activeloop Collaborates with Towards AI to Launch 3 Free Skill Certification Courses on LangChain, Vector Databases, & Foundational Models
Mountain View, CA. June 20 2023 - Activeloop is proud to announce the launch of industry-pioneering educational certifications on Large Language Models, Deep Lake, the vector database for all AI data, and LangChain, a framework for developing applications powered by language models. The certification program, available at no cost, is designed as part of the Gen AI 360: Foundational Model Certification program in collaboration with Intel and Towards AI. The first installment of the course combines a comprehensive overview of foundational model theory and practical projects with LangChain and Deep Lake, equipping AI developers with the tools they need to apply Large Language Models across industries.
“Reaching over 385,000 AI developers monthly, we’re passionate about educating and upskilling engineers in this rapidly growing field. That is why we designed a practical course engineers can take to implement AI into their company processes or use Foundational Models to build entirely new products,” said Louie Peters, CEO of Towards AI.
“Every company will be adding Foundational Models and vector databases to their day-to- day operations and the products they build very soon. Upon course completion, Deep Lake Certified developers can harness the full potential of Large Language Models and advanced AI technologies like Deep Lake and LangChain. Companies that want to achieve a competitive advantage should include these frameworks in their toolset. We’re already seeing solutions powered by LangChain and Deep Lake rapidly gaining adoption,” said Davit Buniatyan, CEO of Activeloop.
“I believe engineers and technology executives could greatly benefit from taking this course to stay at the forefront of AI,” said Arijit Bandyopadhyay, CTO – Enterprise Analytics & AI, Head of Strategy – Cloud & Enterprise, DCAI Group at Intel Corporation. “Intel continues to be at the vanguard of AI and new technology adoption. This Foundational Model Certification could help better equip the next generation of innovators with what they need to succeed with Generative AI and Large Language Models. It could also contribute to the broader adoption of AI applications and solutions across various industries.”
Activeloop’s Deep Lake is designed to combine the best of both data lakes and vector databases, enabling companies to build their own data flywheels to fine-tune their Large Language Models on complex data beyond embeddings - such as text, image, video, or audio, and power AI products. LangChain, in its turn, seamlessly connects Deep Lake datasets with Foundational Models in diverse use cases - from understanding GitHub repositories to analyzing financial statements.
Created with support from industry leaders, the certification will foster the adoption of cutting-edge AI technology within any engineering organization across industries.

Activeloop is building Deep Lake, a vector database for all AI data. With Deep Lake, ML teams can store and manage complex data, such as embeddings, text, images, audio, videos, annotations, or tabular data, in a deep learning-native format and stream them to ML frameworks in real time. Matterport, Yale University, MILA Quebec, & others use Deep Lake.
