  • Introduction to MPI

    5 March 2017

    Gent, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    Introduction to MPI https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-mpi The Message Passing Interface (MPI) is a standardized library specification for message passing between different processes. In layman's terms: MPI provides mechanisms for handling the data communication in a parallel program. It is particularly suited for computational clusters, where the workstations are connected by an interconnection network (e.g. Infiniband, Gigabit Ethernet). In this workshop, the applicability of MPI will be compared to other parallel programming paradigms such as OpenMP, Cuda and MapReduce. Next, the basic principles of MPI will be gradually introduced (Point-to-point communication, collective communication, MPI datatypes, etc). Hands-on exercises allow the participants to immediately turn the newly acquired skills into practice. Finally, some more theoretical considerations regarding scalability of algorithms are presented. About the lecturer: Dr. Jan Fostier. Jan received his MS and PhD degree in physical engineering from Ghent University in 2005 and 2009 respectively. Currently, he is appointed assistant professor in the department of Information Technology (INTEC) at the same university. His main research interests are (parallel) algorithms for biological sciences, high performance computing and computational electromagnetics. 2017-03-05 09:00:00 UTC 2017-03-05 00:00:00 UTC Multimediaroom building S9 Campus De Sterre, Gent, Belgium Multimediaroom building S9 Campus De Sterre Gent Belgium 9000 [] [] [] [] [] []

    Elixir node event
    At The Forefront Of Plant Research https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/at-the-forefront-of-plant-research Understanding and exploiting plant life lies at the heart of human civilization. Not only do we rely on plants to feed a growing world population and to improve our standard of living, plants also play a pivotal role in providing a significant portion of our energy needs, and in fulfilling our demand for renewable industrial resources. It is expected that technological advances will further boost crop productivity and quality in a wider range of applications. In addition, new technologies will enable the development of agricultural practices that are in better harmony with the natural environment. The genomics revolution has been steering plant life sciences for more than a decade now. For that reason it is good to reflect and look ahead to which new opportunities are on the horizon. The aim of this conference is to unite leaders from a wide range of pioneering research topics, to give us a glimpse of where plant science will lead us to in the coming decade. 2017-06-15 08:00:00 UTC 2017-06-16 18:00:00 UTC VIB Conferences NV Zebrastraat, 32, Zebrastraat, Gent, Belgium NV Zebrastraat, 32, Zebrastraat Gent Oost-Vlaanderen Belgium 9000 Plant biology VIB conferences@vib.be [] Life Science Researchers 250 meetings_and_conferences [] plantbiologygenomics

  • Introduction to Machine Learning Algorithms

    23 - 24 November 2017

    Gent, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    Introduction to Machine Learning Algorithms https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/introduction-to-machine-learning-algorithms This course offers basics of analysing datasets with machine learning algorithms and data mining techniques in order to understand foundations of learning from large quantities of data. It starts with general methods for data analysis in order to understand clustering, classification, and regression. This includes a thorough discussion of test datasets, training datasets, and validation datasets required to learn from data with a high accuracy. Easy application examples will foster the theoretical course elements that also will illustrate problems like overfitting followed by mechanisms such as validation and regularisation that prevent such problems. The course will start from a very simple application example in order to teach foundations like the role of features in data, linear separability, or decision boundaries for machine learning models. In particular this course will point to key challenges in analysing large quantities of data sets (aka ‘big data’) in order to motivate the use of parallel and scalable machine learning algorithms. Hands-on exercises allow the participants to immediately turn the newly acquired skills into practice. After this course participants will have a general understanding how to approach data analysis problems in a systematic way including knowledge where parallel computing provide benefits. About the lecturer: Prof. Dr. – Ing. Morris Riedel received his PhD from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and he is the head of the ‘high productivity data processing’ research group of the Juelich Supercomputing Centre (JSC) in Germany. As an adjunct associated professor at the School of Natural Sciences and Engineering of the University of Iceland he teaches ‘High Performance Computing’, ‘Cloud Computing and Big Data’, as well as ‘Statistical Data Mining’ and all of these courses are on the intersection of parallel computing and machine learning. He has given tutorials like the course above at numerous occasions like at the Barcelona Supercomputing Centre, Smart Data Innovation Conference, or Prace Spring School in Cyprus. His research interests are parallel and scalable machine learning and data science.

  • Deep Learning using a Convolutional Neural Network

    30 November - 12 January 2017

    Gent, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    Deep Learning using a Convolutional Neural Network https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/deep-learning-using-a-convolutional-neural-network This course part focuses on a recent machine learning method known as deep learning that emerged as a promising disruptive approach, allowing knowledge discovery from large datasets in an unprecedented effectiveness and efficiency. It is particularly relevant in research areas, which are not accessible through modelling and simulation often performed in HPC. Traditional learning, which was introduced in the 1950s and became a data-driven paradigm in the 90s, is usually based on an iterative process of feature engineering, learning, and modelling. Although successful on many tasks, the resulting models are often hard to transfer to other datasets and research areas. This course provides an introduction into deep learning and its inherent ability to derive optimal and often quite generic problem representations from the data (aka ‘feature learning’). Concrete architectures such as Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) will be applied to real datasets of applications using known deep learning frameworks such as Tensorflow, Keras, or Torch. As the learning process with CNNs is extremely computational-intensive the course will cover aspects of how parallel computing can be leveraged in order to speed-up the learning process using general purpose computing on graphics processing units (GPGPUs). Hands-on exercises allow the participants to immediately turn the newly acquired skills into practice. After this course participants will have a general understanding for which problems CNN learning architectures are useful and how parallel and scalable computing is facilitating the learning process when facing big datasets.
