NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery for 50 Years

ALCF Cerebras AI Training Workshop July 17 & 18, 2023

July 17, 2023


This workshop is 2 of 3 AI accelerator trainings on ALCF’s AI Testbed, and is open to NERSC users. 


This training workshop will introduce users to the novel AI accelerators deployed at the ALCF AI Testbed. This workshop is targeted at universities, national labs, and industries working on open science.

This training session will introduce users to the Cerebras CS-2 system architecture and software stack. It will provide hands-on training to get started on the CS-2 system in the ALCF AI testbed. The event will be virtual and the sessions will be recorded and made available. 

Day 1 will focus on Cerebras CS-2 hardware and software architecture, running models on the CS-2 system at ALCF AI Testbed.

Day 2 will focus on a deep dive into Large Language Models (LLMs) on CS-2, hands-on session, and best practices.

Date and Time:  11:30 am - 2:30 pm Pacific, Mon-Tue, July 11 & 12, 2023
