About the Training


The IBM PowerAI software, combined with the unprecedented performance of IBM Power9 hardware, makes deep learning easier and faster by bringing together some of the most popular open source frameworks for deep learning, with development and management tools. Designed to simplify end-to- end deep learning, PowerAI on the Mass Open Cloud allows researchers to spend less time on data preparation, implementation and integration, and more time training neural networks for results.


Date: April 24 -25, 2019

Location: Hariri Institute for Computing, 111 Cummington Mall, Seminar Room, Boston, MA 02215
