Training on data analytics, big data and machine learning workflows at LRZ

In addition to supporting traditional HPC applications, the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) is offering systems and services to address the increasing demand of data analytics, big data and machine learning workflows. In a series of trainings, we will provide introductory courses for researchers and students who want to utilize LRZ resources for tasks of this nature.

The "opening session" on Tuesday, April 9th will provide an "Introduction to the LRZ Supercomputing & Machine Learning Infrastructure". Attending this full day course will give you an overview of the high performance computing hardware and software services available at LRZ and you will learn how to utilize these systems, focusing on different machine learning tools and applications.

On Thursday, April 11th an Intel Artificial Intelligence Workshop will highlight the usage of Intel's optimized performance libraries underneath popular machine learning frameworks. The workshop includes hands-on sessions around classical machine learning as well as deep learning on HPC systems. Besides introducing the transparent usage of performance libraries, the focus will be to empower participants to scale their deep learning (TensorFlow) application training on distributed HPC systems.
