In this meetup, we're going to take a workload that trains an image classification neural net and show how you can leverage Nvidia GPUs to see impressive speed improvements without any substantial code changes. We'll go over the differences in model training speed on a local machine or cluster as compared to training the same model in a more distributed environment using cloud resources that can be spooled up or torn down as needed. You'll see the use of popular libraries such as Tensorflow and Keras as well as a popular image classification model ResNet.

For a preview of the content we'll be covering, we've got the following resources:

Join Nicolas Pelaez and Michael Ridley, both of Cloudera, to see how we've linked all these concepts together and hopefully inspire similar solutions of your own!

This is still a tricky time for public gatherings, but Future of Data is committed to providing great tech content & facilitating discussions in the "Big Data" and ML space. Our group in Northern Virginia is holding this event; in order to do our part to fight the spread of COVID-19's delta variant, this will be an exclusively online event with an originating Time Zone of EDT (the event time displayed on this page will reflect the equivalent local time). We thought it might be of interest to our wider membership (you are welcome to sign up for it here).

The URL for accessing the "live stream" will be provided to pre-registrants here, on this page, no later than 48 hours prior to the event. Click here for event
