Dear HPC users of LRZ,

Deep Learning is rapidly penetrating into many scientific disciplines, as data generation and collection become easier while parallel computation power (especially in the form of GPU) grows stronger. LRZ deployed several GPU systems for deep learning, including a DGX-1 and Openstack cloud based GPU virtual servers (with Pascal 100) since the start of 2017. Together with Nvidia, we are organizing a one-day Deep Learning Workshop on Sept. 14th, 2017. This workshop is targeted at scientists with limited knowledge of Deep Learning, but it will also be informative for Deep learning experts. The core of the workshop will be lectures given by Nvidia experts.

Topics on the agenda include: NVIDIA GPU Computing and DGX AI Supercomputer; Changing gear for accelerating deep learning - the first year operation experience with DGX-1; Deep Learning Intro: AI boosting HPC; Invited talk: Bottlenecks towards Scalable Deep Learning on HPC Systems; Invited talk: Deep Learning for Visual Computing; Multi-GPU applications: Deep Learning on DGX-1; various DGX-1 demos and talks from workshop participants.

For more information and registration, please see

Please also pass this workshop announcement to other interested colleagues.
