Session name / description / presenter
|08:30- 09:00||Registration with light breakfast|
|09:00- 09:15||WELCOME & INTRODUCTION|
AI CONCEPTS AND USE CASES
In this session, we will explore the concepts and applications of Deep Learning, with a focus on real world applications using the Intel® CPUs for training and inference.
|09:45 - 10:15||
INTRODUCING THE NEW INTEL® CPU GENERATION FOR AI
This session will introduce the architectural details and the key features of the latest Intel® server CPUs from a software development and AI perspective. We will cover both the new Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors (Purley / Skylake-SP) as well as the Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor family (code name Knights Landing and Knights Mill).
|10:15 - 10:45||Coffee break|
|10:45 - 11:25||
PRACTICAL FRAMEWORKS SESSION 1: USING OPTIMIZED CAFFE* FRAMEWORK
In this session we show how to build Caffe* optimized for Intel® Architecture, train deep network models using one or more compute nodes, and deploy networks. In addition, various functionalities of Caffe* are explored in detail including how to fine-tune, extract and view features of different models, and use the Caffe* Python API.
PRACTICAL FRAMEWORKS SESSION 2: USING OPTIMIZED TENSORFLOW
In this tutorial we show how to use the Intel®-optimized version of TensorFlow. As well as demonstrating of how to use these frameworks, the session will include a VTune analysis of the frameworks and an explanation of how the Intel® implemented optimizations were achieved. We will also show benchmarks comparison between optimized and non-optimized version of TensorFlow.
|12:05 - 12:30||CASE STUDY 1: Towards a perceptive microscope: deep learning-based image analysis in the Human Brain Project
LENS: We will describe the experience of LENS and Bioretics in analyzing TB-sized human and mouse brain datasets produced within the European Flagship Human Brain Project.
|12:30 - 14:00||Lunch break|
|14:00 - 14:30||
CASE STUDY 2: Deep learning for Automatic Video Annotation and Captioning
AImageLab UNIMORE: We will describe results achieved in this fields with specifically designed convolutional neural networks and recurrent networks such as LSTM, trained over very large datasets of broadcast video in sport, movies and culture.
|14:30 - 15:15||PRACTICAL FRAMEWORKS SESSION 3: USING OPTIMIZED NEON FRAMEWORK
In this session we show how to build Neon optimized for Intel® Architecture, train deep network models using one compute nodes, and deploy networks. In addition, various functionalities of Neon are explored in detail including how to fine- tune, extract and view features of different models.
|15:15 - 15:45||
CASE STUDY 3: Deep Learning techniques to classify Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) images at the nanoscale
CNR-IOM: This session will present an overview on how we recently applied modern deep learning techniques to the wide area of nanoscience; we will focus on deep convolutional neural network training to classify Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) images at the nanoscale.
|15:45 - 16:15||Coffee break|
|16:15 - 17:15||
INTEL® NERVANA™ SOFTWARE STACK – NEON & NGRAPH
This session will cover Intel® Nervana™’s software stack for AI, Deep Learning: we will demonstrate how to run few example in both discussing how the two framework relate.
|17:15 - 17:35||CASE STUDY 4: CINECA: Benchmarking deep learning frameworks on CINECA systems|
|17:35 - 17:50
||DL INFERENCE USING FPGA & THE MOVIDIUS™ NEURAL COMPUTE STICK
Learn how trained models can be optimized for inference using Intel®’s FPGA and also using the innovative Movidius™ Neural Compute Stick.
|17:50 - 18:00||Q&A|
Cineca is a non profit Consortium, made up of 70 Italian universities*, 8 Italian Research Institutions and the Italian Ministry of Education. Today it is the largest Italian computing centre, one of the most important worldwide. With more seven hundred employees, it operates in the technological transfer sector through high performance scientific computing, the management and development of networks and web based services, and the development of complex information systems for treating large amounts of data. It develops advanced Information Technology applications and services, acting like a trait-d'union between the academic world, the sphere of pure research and the world of industry and Public Administration.
For those who wish to book a hotel, Intel recommends the following nearby accommodations:
Boutique Hotel Calzavecchio****
Just a few kilometers away from Bologna city centre and from Bologna Fair district, Hotel Calzavecchio will welcome you with a refined and elegant 4 star comfort. A two years long radical renovation has completely transformed the historical Albergo into a modern accommodation facility, keeping the classic shapes and the ancient charm unaltered. The tranquility of the historical park and its fountain offer unforgettable moments of relax after a day of work or tourism in the amazing artistic and cultural frame of Bologna and its surrounding areas. Wi-fi connection, Fitness Point and parking available for free for our customers.
Amatì Design Hotel ****
The Amatì Design Hotel is not rooted in old family traditions or in the restoration of historic buildings with their own personal past. The hotel is simply the vision of a family of travellers, quite used to close the home door behind themselves and to open a new one on another destination, hoping to find that characteristic warmth and serenity that only the walls of one’s own home can offer. Amatì Design Hotel is like being enveloped by the scent of home; it is the tranquillity that pervades when listening to a symphony, the smile of a welcome, or the joy of an early morning, feeling close to what we love, even from kilometres away.
Please note that these hotels are recommendations only. Other accommodations are also available. If you have questions or require further information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
