BOOTCAMP: AI for Science Bootcamp

This Bootcamp will be held online with Zoom.

During this two-day online Bootcamp, participants will learn how to apply AI tools, techniques and algorithms to real-life problems. You will study the core concepts of Deep Neural Networks, how to build Deep Learning models as well as how to measure and improve the accuracy of your models. You will also learn essential data pre-processing techniques to ensure a robust Machine Learning pipeline. This online Bootcamp is a hands-on learning experience where you will be guided through step-by-step instructions with teaching assistants on hand to help throughout.

The Bootcamp is co-organised by HLRS, JSC, LRZ, VSC, and NVIDIA for EuroCC Austria and EuroCC@GCS, the Austrian and German National Competence Centres for High-Performance Computing.
