The computational requirements of deep neural networks used to enable AI applications like self-driving cars are enormous. A single training cycle can take weeks on a single GPU or even years for larger datasets like those used in self-driving car research. Using multiple GPUs for deep learning can significantly shorten the time required to train lots of data, making solving complex problems with deep learning feasible.
We will teach you how to use multiple GPUs to train neural networks. You'll learn:
Approaches to multi-GPUs training
Algorithmic and engineering challenges to large-scale training
Key techniques used to overcome the challenges mentioned above
This course is only offered to academia (see details below in section Capacity and Fees).
Purpose of the course (benefits for the attendees)
Upon completion, you'll be able to effectively parallelize training of deep neural networks using Tensorflow 2.x.
