Deep Learning with BigDL

( Duration: 3 Days )

Intel has released an excellent library called BigDL to open-source, allowing state-of-the-art machine learning done at scale. This Deep Learning with BigDL training course introduces Deep Learning concepts and the BigDL library.

By attending Deep Learning with BigDL workshop, delegates will learn:

  • Introducing the BigDL Library
  • RDD API versus Pipeline API
  • Using BigDL with Tensorflow and Caffe models
  • Visualizing Deep Learning Data with Tensorboard
  • Scaling Deep Learning with massive distributed data

  • Basic knowledge of Python language and Jupyter notebooks
  • Basic knowledge of Linux environment would be beneficial
  • Some Machine Learning familiarity would be nice, but not necessary.

The Deep Learning with BigDL class is ideal for:

  • Developers, Data analysts, data scientists
