Fundamentals of Deep
Learning for Multi-GPUs

Training you to solve the World’s most challenging problems.
Join us on the 16th December 2021 for only £75.

Instructor led workshop

This workshop teaches you techniques for training deep neural networks on multi-GPU technology to shorten the training time required for data-intensive applications. Working with deep learning tools, frameworks, and workflows to perform neural network training, you’ll learn concepts for implementing Horovod multi-GPUs to reduce the complexity of writing efficient distributed software and to maintain accuracy when training a model across many GPUs.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the workshop, you’ll understand:
• Stochastic gradient descent (SGD), a crucial tool in parallelised training
• Batch size and its effect on training time and accuracy
• Transforming a single-GPU implementation to a Horovod multi-GPU implementation
• Techniques for maintaining high accuracy when training across multiple GPUs
