New Deep Learning and GPU Programming Courses

We are happy to announce that LRZ has further extended its programme of Deep Learning and accelerated computing courses offered in collaboration with NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute (DLI).

The workshop series offers hands-on training for developers, data scientists, and researchers looking to solve challenging problems with deep learning and accelerated computing. The program is designed to help you get started with training, optimizing, and deploying neural networks to solve real-world problems across diverse topics such as self-driving cars, healthcare, online services, and robotics.

NEW: Fundamentals of Accelerated Computing with OpenACC @ LRZ

Date: Thursday, March 14, 2019, 9:00-17:00
Location: LRZ
Lecturer: Dr. Volker Weinberg  (LRZ)

Summary: In this workshop you learn the basics of OpenACC, a high-level programming language for programming on GPUs. Discover how to accelerate the performance of your applications beyond the limits of CPU-only programming with simple pragmas. Upon completion, you'll be ready to use OpenACC to GPU accelerate CPU-only applications.
