Practical introduction to programming Deep Learning on a BSC Supercomputer

The 2022 ACM Europe Summer School on “HPC Computer Architectures for AI and Dedicated Applications” will take place 29 August – 2 September. It will be hosted by the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC-CNS) and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC). This edition of the school will take place in-person in Barcelona. The summer school is open to young computer science researchers and engineers, outstanding MSc students, and senior undergraduate students. Accepted participants will attend formal lectures and practical hands-on sessions.

One of the hands-on will be » Practical introduction to programming Deep Learning on a BSC Supercomputer» (by prof. Jordi Torres):

Next-generation of Deep Learning applications impose new and demanding computing infrastructures. How are the computer systems that support Deep Learning? How do you program these systems? The course consists of a first theoretical part where an introduction to Deep Learning is made (for all those students who do not have previous knowledge of deep learning.). The second part provides the student with written documentation so that he/she can follow the learning process at his/her own pace (even after the session is over.). This second part includes basic concepts in parallel training of Deep Learning applications, and a handbook hands-on that guides the student in practising an image classification problem using the marenostrum supercomputer. The teacher will be in the classroom to answer any questions.
