Upcoming events

Workshop: Intel solutions and tools for ML/DL implementations

Time: 9:00 AM Location: CERN
30-7-018 - Kjell Johnsen Auditorium
Location in CERN maps: https://maps.cern.ch/mapsearch/mapsearch.htm?n=%5B%2730/7-018%27%5D

This full day workshop will provide a comprehensive picture of Intel strategy for ML/DL solutions and will give the possibility to understand which are the tools already available today on Intel Architecture, and what will be available soon, to address neural network implementation (Optimized DL frameworks, OpenVino, nGraph). During the workshop Intel is planning to explain and demonstrate the benefit of new instruction set (VNNI – DL Boost) included in the future XEON® Scalable Processors – Cascade Lake. Intel will also provide evidence of the open source project in which has been involved to simplify and how containers can help scaling and provide easy deployment ML/DL projects (Nauta). Looking forward Intel is planning to share more details on future specific products (NNP) targeting Training and Inference acceleration.
