DescriptionDeep learning (DL) is changing this world. With major breakthroughs in computer vision, natural language processing, speech recognition and autonomous driving, deep learning has become the hottest topic in Artificial Intelligence. We have reached a crucial moment where deep learning and high performance computing are converging to deliver on promises made by big data. In this tutorial, we will explore the fundamentals of deep learning and discuss the current trend of this fast moving field, including the latest on various DL software frameworks and HPC hardware/cloud platforms. Following the success stories of applying deep learning to computer vision, tutorial participants will gain hands-on experience training deep neural networks and using results to improve performance and capabilities. Upon completion, attendees will be able to solve their own problems with deep learning.
