12:45 p.m.  Registration

Parallel and GPU computing with MATLAB (1:00p.m.-2:30p.m.)

In this session you will learn how to boost the execution speed of computationally and data-intensive problems using MATLAB and the Parallel Computing Toolbox. We will introduce and demonstrate the high-level programming constructs that allow you to easily create parallel MATLAB applications without low-level programming.

Highlights include:

  • Toolboxes with built-in algorithms for parallel computing
  • Creating parallel applications to speed up independent tasks
  • Scaling up to computer clusters, grid environments or clouds
  • Employing GPUs to speed up your computations

Demystifying Deep Learning: A Practical Approach in MATLAB (2:30 p.m.-4:00 p.m.)

In this session, we’ll demonstrate new MATLAB features that simplify these tasks and eliminate the low-level programming. In doing so, we’ll decipher practical knowledge of the domain of deep learning. We’ll build and train neural networks that recognize handwriting, classify food in a scene, and figure out the drivable area in a city environment.

Highlights include:

  • Manage extremely large sets of images
  • Visualize networks and gain insight into the black box nature of deep networks
  • Perform classification and pixel-level semantic segmentation on images
  • Import training data sets from networks such as GoogLeNet and ResNet
  • Import and use pre-trained models from TensorFlow and Caffe
  • Speed up network training with parallel computing on a cluster
  • Automate manual effort required to label ground truth
