Machine Learning with AMD GPUs and ROCm Software:
Jan. 11: This course will be provided using Microsoft Teams for those on waiting list of previous ONLINE course on January 20, 2021.
Participants will be introduced to AMD's Instinct GPU portfolio and ROCm software ecosystem. The course will introduce the configuration of an AMD-based ML environment, along with the use of TensorFlow and PyTorch frameworks in conjunction with AMD GPUs. Exercises for participants will provide hands-on experience with the basics of using ROCm tools. The content will also include an introduction to performance profiling tools for AMD GPUs.
This course provides training in distributed Machine Learning.
After this course, participants will

Familiarity with TensorFlow and Pytorch will be a plus. Tutorial to explore prior to the course: "Learn and use ML" section: www.tensorflow.org/tutorials, a "Deep Learning with PyTorch" section: pytorch.org/tutorials, and a Python tutorial. In suggested prereading (see below) you will find more AMD material.
Please make sure to have a functioning working environment and remote access for interactive portions of the training prior to the course. In case of questions, please contact the course organizer (see below).
The course language is English.
