Deep Learning at Scale with Horovod

September 21, Thuesday, 14:00 - 16:00 (Samara, GMT +4)

Speaker: Dmitry Mironov

Mironov

Duration: 2 hours

Prerequisites: Competency in the Python programming language and experience training deep learning models in Python

Workshop Brief: Modern deep learning challenges leverage increasingly larger datasets and more complex models. As a result, significant computational power is required to train models effectively and efficiently. In the workshop, you will learn how to scale deep learning training to multiple GPUs with Horovod, the open-source distributed training framework originally built by Uber. Upon completion, you'll be able to use Horovod to effectively scale deep learning training in new or existing code bases.

Speaker Information: Dmitry Mironov is an expert in machine learning and inference optimization. Since 2019, Dmitry has been working at Solutions Architect (NVIDIA) and helps various teams to squeeze maximum performance and accuracy from their computing resources with minimal effort. Prior to that, he was CTO of a computer vision startup, leading several successful projects. Prior to his career in the industry, Dmitry graduated from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and was a PhD student at Skoltech, in the robotics laboratory.

Lectures

soifer lector

Viktor Soifer
President of Samara University

Online lecture "Robots in the digital world"

What's a robot? How is the world's robotic market today? How is artificial intelligence used in robotics?

Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Victor Soifer is convinced that today the main mission of the personalities of science, culture, education and art is to give people the opportunity to get into interesting and deep themes, his lecture is therefore adressed to everyone. Is is an overview of a popular science topic, particularly relevant in the context of society immersed in the digital world.

 

 

Online lecture "What is the digital economy?"

Transition to "digital economy" and digital management is not a simple digitization of data and processes, it is a change of model, approaches, way of thinking. In his lecture, Victor Soifer, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, talks about economic, social, and psychological aspects of this process.
