PARALLELISM, PERFORMANCE & OPTIMIZATION ON INTEL® ARCHITECTURE – WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW! (30 min)
The Intel® architecture offers parallelism at many different levels. Here we present the seven different levels of parallelism you should be thinking about when you write or optimize code.
SESSION 1: A STEP-BY-STEP APPROACH TO APPLICATION TUNING WITH INTEL® COMPILERS (3 hours)
In this first hands-on session, we follow the steps recommended by the Intel® Compiler Engineers that should be used to get the best performance out of the Intel® Compiler. Practical topics include general optimization, processor-specific options, inter procedural optimization, profile guided optimization, compiler optimization reports, and support for thread parallelism.
SESSION 2: INTEGRATING VTUNE AND ADVISOR IN YOUR OPTIMIZATION PROCESS (3 hours)
Starting from an un-optimized wave propagation kernel, we describe a general methodology to characterize and profile your code. We will see how threading, vectorization, but also memory optimization can affect the behaviour of your programs. The roofline model, dependency analysis and memory access pattern analysis from Intel® Advisor as well as the HPC Performance Characterization and Memory Access from Intel® VTune™ Amplifier will be used to guide the developer to a more performant code.
AGENDA DAY 2**
08:00 09:00 Registration with light breakfast
09:00 18:00 Hands-on AI coding sessions on your own laptop PC
AI CONCEPTS (30 min)
In this session, we will explore the concepts and applications of Deep Learning, with a focus on real-world applications using the Intel® processors for training and inference.
HANDS-ON SESSION 1: GETTING STARTED ON INTEL® ARCHITECTURE (3 hours)
In this first session, we show how you can log in to the two development environments and run some basic Intel® optimized Python* scripts. Firstly, using a VM image on your own laptop/pc, and secondly, working on the cloud using Intel® AI DevCloud.
INTEL® DEVELOPER ZONE – YOUR ONLINE SUPPORT TOOL (10 min)
A brief overview on training resources, tool downloads, programs such as the Ambassador program, the AI builder program.
HANDS-ON SESSION 2: INFERENCE ON THE EDGE USING THE INTEL® MOVIDIUS™ NEURAL COMPUTE STICK (3 hours)
In this session, we discuss the advantages of using Caffe* optimized for Intel® Architecture and show how to train deep network models using one or more compute nodes. In the practical part of this session, you will then get the chance to run a pre-trained model on the Intel® Movidius™ Neural Compute Stick.
MACHINE LEARNING IN THE LARGE (30 min)
Speed up your Spark*-based machine learning apps by using Intel® BigDL. In this session, we provide an overview of the BigDL library and a short demonstration of its usage within the Apache Spark ecosystem.
Food and beverages will be provided during the event
