Hands-On Workshop: Accelerate PyTorch Applications Using Intel oneAPI Toolkit

Developers often struggle with high computational complexity, algorithmic challenge and inference of large neural networks while accelerating deep learning applications. PyTorch facilitates building deep learning projects by allowing the creation and training of deep neural networks and the ability to perform accelerated mathematical operations on dedicated hardware. PyTorch can be used to train a large amount of data at a rapid pace and is also flexible enough for experimentation and prototyping.

However, the deployment of complex models with thousands to millions of parameters and large numbers of layers require heavy GPUs. The model can be pruned or quantised to optimise to a certain level. Intel oneAPI is introducing a hands-on approach to accelerate PyTorch applications and allow developers to deploy models in a resource-constrained environment.

Intel® Extension for PyTorch* (IPEX), part of Intel’s oneAPI AI Analytics toolkit, is designed to make the PyTorch CPU experience better while achieving good performance.

Our last workshop introduced Intel® oneAPI AI Analytics Toolkit to the community of developers as a component to maximise their ML and deep learning performance. This workshop, on the other hand, will do a deep dive on how to accelerate PyTorch applications using Intel oneAPI Toolkit. 

Analytics India Magazine, in association with Intel®, has put together a hands-on virtual workshop on August 18, 2021, to unpack Intel® Extension for PyTorch*. The participants will learn how to train a model using Intel® Extension for PyTorch* and use the PyTorch extensions for inference. Expert trainers from Intel will also demonstrate how to accelerate AI inference performance with Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ Toolkit through ONNX.

Join the Intel® DevMesh, a community portal for developers and creators to share their work & best practices. || Click here — https://devmesh.intel.com.

  • Submit your projects using Intel® DevCloud & oneAPI toolkit on Intel® DevMesh portal by 30th August 2021 & email the project link to kavita.aroor@intel.com.
  • If there are projects that use PyTorch it could be replaced by Intel’s Extension of PyTorch* (for  training and Inference) or Intel Distribution of OpenVINO™ (for Inference) and other relevant oneAPI components. After replacing the components, the performance can be compared with your stock counterparts and the same can be submitted for Intel’s evaluation.
  • Projects submitted must include usage of Intel DevCloud & oneAPI toolkits.

Top 8 projects will stand a chance to win Amazon Gift Voucher worth INR 5000/- each!
