  • 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 [] [] [] [] [] []

  • Big data and High Performance Computing in Life Sciences

    24 May 2017

    Diepenbeek, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    Big data and High Performance Computing in Life Sciences https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/big-data-and-high-performance-computing-in-life-sciences Current pharmaceutical research and development generates vast amounts of data. These big data come from high content screens, magnetic resonance imaging, omics and diagnostic patient monitoring devices. Together with this increasing magnitude of databases there is an associated increase in the time required to execute data processing. With the increasing complexity of methodology and new scientific insights, the existing computational algorithms and infrastructure are unlikely to cope with the challenges soon. Complex statistical models will push the limits of the current algorithms and implementations. To be able to face the challenges of the near future increased performance both at the algorithmic and software/hardware levels are deemed crucial. Case studies on drug development will be given. One important project that is part of a collaboration of academic and industrial partners is conducting research on the computational requirements for disease modeling of Type II Diabetes as part of the ExaScience project (www.exascience.com). Appropriate use of computing infrastructure and high performance computing software makes it possible to use these new technologies in a time-constrained setting. This is a requirement when the disease models are used to make decisions within hours during the interim analyses of clinical trials with adaptive experimental designs. Besides this project other real-life cases presented include genomics, microbiome and brain imaging.

    Diepenbeek, Belgium

    Elixir node event
    Deep learning application in the life sciences https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/deep-learning-application-in-the-life-sciences Deep learning has made headlines over the last couple of years, with applications in various domains. This approach has a lot of potential in life sciences. As datasets in life sciences increase in size there is a growing need for techniques that can fully take advantage of them. The advent of Big Data alongside an exponential increase in computing power has led to the re-emergence of neural networks (now mostly referred to as “Deep Learning”). These techniques flourish when given enough data, which makes them ideal for the interpretation of massive datasets. In this talk, we provide an introduction to Deep Learning as well as some examples of how it is being applied in the context of life sciences. Speakers: Jan Yperman and dr.

  • 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.
