Intro to Deep Learning


This workshop introduces IU faculty, staff, and students to Deep Learning on the resources UITS Research Technologies (RT) makes available to them at IU, namely the Big Red 200 supercomputer. Attendees will learn to create their first NeuralNet, RandomForest and function optimizer with the Deep Learning software stack on Big Red 200. Detailed examples with documented code will be provided and discussed. No prior knowledge of these techniques is assumed. Knowledge of Unix and Python is needed for the hands-on exercises.


  • TensorFlow for NeuralNetworks
  • Sklearn for a RandomForest
  • Scipy for an optimization probleM
  • Cupy for GPU acceleration of existing numpy applications
