NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery for 50 Years

NERSC AI for Science Bootcamp, August 25-26, 2022

August 25, 2021

This online event, hosted by NERSC in partnership with Nvidia, will consist of a 2-day Bootcamp designed to teach users fundamental concepts and practices in deep learning, and how to effectively apply them to scientific problems. Participants will learn how to implement the primary components of deep learning workflows, including hands-on exercises training and evaluating custom deep learning models on scientific datasets.

We will be utilizing the NVIDIA Curiosity Cluster for this Bootcamp. This event has limited capacity, so please sign up early and note that active NERSC/ALCF/OLCF users will be prioritized during the registration process.


Basic experience with Python. No GPU programming or AI knowledge is required. This event has limited capacity, so please make sure that prerequisites are met before applying. 

Bootcamp Event Format

Participants are introduced to available libraries, programming models, and platforms through a mix of lectures, labs, and extensive hands-on collaboration based on real-life codes, data, and use cases. To keep the events both productive and fun, bootcamps include a competition component where teams work on mini-applications to show the best acceleration techniques.   See more information about bootcamps here
