NCI and NVIDIA are holding a series of bootcamps in 2022 with the focus on AI, GPU, parallel programming and speed up, big data analysis using CPU and GPU capabilities. Bootcamps and Hackathons are exciting and unique way for scientists and researchers to learn the skills needed to start quickly accelerating codes running on Gadi. We are pleased to announce three bootcamps:



NCI Australia Accelerated Data Science GPU Bootcamp

Application Deadline: March 29th, 2022

Bootcamp Dates: 1:00-4:00pm AEST, 20th and 21st April 2022

Summary

GPU Bootcamp is an exciting and unique way for scientists and researchers to learn the skills needed to start quickly accelerating codes on GPUs. Held as a virtual event across two days (with three hour sessions) , participants will learn about RAPIDS suite of open source software libraries that gives Data Scientist the freedom to execute end-to-end data science and analytics pipelines entirely on GPUs

In this Bootcamp, participants will be exposed to using libraries that can be easily integrated with the daily data science pipeline and accelerate computations for faster execution. This bootcamp will focus on CuDF, CuML and Dask to run analytics pipelines on multiple GPU. 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.

Presented by NCI Australia, the bootcamp is open to all current and prospective NCI users.
