We're happy to host our first IBM PowerAI Meetup for 2019 in Stuttgart on 19th March.
We are hosting the Meetup following the IBM Spectrum Scale Strategy Days at 17:30. Registration via Meetup and Eventbrite is required. Many Thanks. Register here: https://www.eventbrite.de/e/ibm-powerai-meetup-stuttgart-tickets-55399113239
Listen to our experts how they are using Deep Learning as part of their daily business and how IBM and several AI company's are working together to build a Deep Learning perspective.
#17:30 - 18:00 Arrive and refreshments
Speaker: Dilek Sezgün (AI, Big Data and Open Source Sales Leader)
#18:15 PowerAI Vision live demo (IBM)
Speaker: Dr. Sebastian Lehrig (Data Scientist's@IBM)
Starting with Watson Machine Learning Accelerator base update and following PowerAI Vision live demo. End to end demo of a deep learning process helping data scientist to achieve faster training times. Including the newly released features.
#18:45 AI and Big Data Management (IBM)
Speaker: Frank Krämer (IT Architect, Expert of Autonomous Driving@IBM)
What is the talk about?
Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS/autonomous driving) are becoming part of all vehicles. All major OEM and Tier-1 auto manufacturers are implementing and testing AD facilities. We examine how real-time sensors, big data computing, data storage and data archiving are integrated in today's ADAS/AD systems, providing a fascinating case study, best practices for workflow design, testing and development, data storage and archiving, applicable to all industries.
#19:15 AI Development @ Scale (NVIDIA)
Speaker: Dr. Adolf Hohl (Deep Learning Solution Architect@NVIDIA)
What is the talk about?
The amount of problems articulated as a Deep Learning problem are rising – so does the dataset. More data to process means less innovations a day. To keep innovation cycles under control, (i) we outline best practice to aggregate GPU compute and (ii) highlight the role of the data pipeline and storage. This workload characteristic motivates how infrastructure solutions are built using NVIDIA DGX & IBM's AC922 and IBM Spectrum Storage.
#19:45 appliedAI initiative (UnternehmerTUM)
Speaker: Dr. Donald Leonhard-MacDonald (Head of AI Engineering@UnternehmerTUM)
UnternehmerTUM, one of the largest non-profit innovation and entrepreneurship centers in Europe, joins forces with leading public sector, industry and tech players in the appliedAI initiative. Combining corporate experience, entrepreneurship, latest research, and creative mindset – we accelerate the adoption of Artificial Intelligence in industry as well as society.
