NCI and NVIDIA will be holding a pair of bootcamps in November focused on utilising Gadi's GPU capabilities. GPU Bootcamps are an exciting and unique way for scientists and researchers to learn the skills needed to start quickly accelerating codes on GPUs.

N-Ways (GPU Bootcamp)

1-3 November 2021, 11.30am to 2.30pm AEDT

Click here to register (via GPU Hackathon)

Summary

Participants will learn about multiple GPU programming models and can choose the one that best fits their needs to run their scientific codes on GPUs. 

This Bootcamp will cover an introduction to GPU programming using OpenACC, OpenMP, stdpar, Fortran Do-Concurrent and CUDA, and provides hands-on opportunities to learn how to analyse GPU-enabled applications using NVIDIA® Nsight™ Systems.

AI For Science (GPU Bootcamp)

29-30 November 2021, 11.30am to 2.30pm AEDT

Click here to register (via GPU Hackathon)

Summary

Participants will learn the basics of GPU computing and AI concepts, particularly as it relates to applying Deep Learning (DL) for scientific problems. 

DL terminology and concepts will be instructed, and participants will start by creating their first “Hello World’ DL network.  Concepts of AI for Science will be discussed to draw a distinction between how scientific AI deployments differ from traditional AI.  We’ll then explore Convolutional Neural Networks and apply them to a Tropical Cyclone Detection case where you will learn the impact of modifying hyperparameters, network layers, and data augmentation to improve your model.  Finally, we’ll explore how more complicated networks (U-Nets) work and you’ll gain experience applying them to a steady flow example problem.
