Intel Artificial Intelligence Workshop

Date: Thursday, April 11, 2019, 9:00-17:00
Location: LRZ Building, Garching/Munich, Boltzmannstr. 1, LRZ Hörsaal

The workshop will highlight the usage of Intel's optimized performance libraries underneath popular machine learning frameworks. It 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. The hands-on examples are written in Python.
