Data Day 2018
September 6th - 7th, 2018
Location: Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Shyh Wang Hall, Bldg. 50, Auditorium
This Fall, NERSC hosts our data-centric event, Data Day, in combination with the LBNL Machine Learning for Science Workshop. Due to the increasing popularity of using NERSC for data intensive workloads, this year's data day will be two days!
September 6th will start with an overview of the statistical and machine learning analytics services at NERSC. We will also dive deep into the Deep Learning stack and best practices for using popular frameworks (TensroFlow, PyTorch) on Cori's architecture. The day will feature several interactive demos, one beginner level hands-on session and an advanced session on how to scale training your neural networks to multiple Cori nodes.
September 7th, will get you up and running with the latest data-focused tools for scientific computing. We will discuss practical recommendations for data transfer and management, ESNet, containers solutions (Shifter). The program will feature exciting science stories which have been made possible using these technologies given by domain scientists.
The entire event will be held on site at the lab, the exact location is to be announced soon. Come and learn how to power up your data. You cannot be there in person? Well, that is sad, but we will be delighted if you join us remotely.
Thursday, Sept. 6th.
