Seminar overview

This two-day event will start with a GPU boot camp, which is an exciting and unique way for scientists and researchers to learn the skills needed to start quickly accelerating codes on GPUs. In the boot camp we will introduce you to available GPU libraries, programming models, and platforms where you will learn the basics of GPU programming through extensive hands-on collaboration based on a real-life code using the OpenACC programming model.

Whether you’re a seasoned researcher or novice programmer, you’re welcome to join this boot camp. Be prepared to learn, brainstorm, and build amazing real-world skills.

On the second day, you will learn deep learning techniques for a range of computer vision tasks through a series of hands-on exercises. You will work with widely-used deep learning tools, frameworks, and workflows to train and deploy neural network models on a fully-configured, GPU-accelerated workstation in the cloud. After a quick introduction to deep learning, you will advance to: building and deploying deep learning applications for image classification and object detection, modifying your neural networks to improve their accuracy and performance, and implementing the workflow you have learned on a final project. At the end of the workshop, you will have access to additional resources to create new deep learning applications on your own.


The course is delivered by NVIDIA staff
