We want to invite you to participate in the ODSC Webinar! During it, you will get to know more about two sessions you can attend at our conference in San Francisco on Oct 29th - Nov 1st, 2019. Date: September 25th Time: 1 pm - 2 pm EST To access this webinar, please register using the link below: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/2196163827264628235 Sessions: 1 - Introducing the Data Production Line for Machine Learning Speaker: Philip Tester, Director of Business Development at CloudFactory Data operations are the new AI factory model. Data is your raw material, and you have to move it through multiple processing and review steps before it’s ready for machine learning (ML). Developing high-performing ML models requires a strategic combination of people, tools, and process working together to structure massive data with high quality. In this segment, CloudFactory will share best practices for your data production line. 2 - Machine Learning in Chainer Python Speaker: Crissman Loomis, AI Engineer at Preferred Networks When choosing a framework for working on neural networks, it is important to choose a framework that is flexible and allows for customization. Chainer is a neural network framework written almost entirely in Python. Chainer was the first framework to provide the “define-by-run” neural network definition, which allows for dynamic changes in the network. Define-by-run simplifies the debugging process since Chainer provides an imperative API in Python. This means error messages provide normal error documentation with Python. Since Chainer was created from the start in Python, the code is inspectable with Python tools, and can be customized if required. Newer neural network models can require new algorithms, and having a framework written in Python means that the code can be altered as required. Chainer supports computation either on CPUs or GPUs. GPU computation is enabled in Chainer by CuPy, a numerical computation library which supports Numpy-compatible operations between arrays. This enables easy switching between CPU or GPU, as required by the coding environment.
