Users are encouraged to bring own data so that they can attempt to connect the methods of deep learning to their own research. The workshop will cover the following topics: - Basic use of the Slurm scheduler. - Running Jupyter notebooks on Huckleberry. - Linear Regression using Tensorflow. - MNIST digits recognition using Keras. - Introduction to Distributed Deep Learning - Exercise with PowerAI-DDL
  • Apr 26, 2018 Torgersen Hall 1100 Intro to ARC Systems This class will provide an overview of high-performance computing from a beginner's perspective. It will cover the following topics: 1) What is supercomputing? 2) Why is supercomputing or parallel computing important 3) Key terminology and concepts in parallel and supercomputing 4) What do modern supercomputers look like? 5) Theoretical background for parallel computing Any or all interested parties are welcome. Participants are not expected to have any background or familiarity with supercomputing or even programming to attend this session. This session provides an overview of the high-performance computing (HPC) resources managed by Advanced Research Computing(ARC) followed by a hands-on introduction to the user environment. This session also provides an excellent opportunity for less experienced HPC users to acquaint themselves with the systems available at Virginia Tech and become more comfortable with their use.
