In recent years machine learning and deep learning techniques in particular have developed tremendously. Neural networks are being used in more and more application domains going from computer vision to speech recognition, and even replacing parts of the compute pipeline for scientific HPC applications. Learn how to use HPC infrastructures efficiently to get the best performance out of different machine learning tools with several hands-on sessions. We will touch upon the scalability challenges involved in when using both large-scale data and large-scale models.

Please bring your own laptop (with an ssh client installed) for the hands-on sessions!

Requirements:

  • basic knowledge on machine learning/statistics
  • Python/Jupyter

The training is organized by SURFsara as a PRACE Training Centre.
