RAPIDS is NVIDIA’s new Python-based framework for accelerating end-to-end data science and machine learning pipelines on their GPUs. In this webinar, we’ll provide an overview of this new framework and how you can incorporate it in your own research. In this webinar we will show how to use RAPIDS to accelerate your data science applications utilizing libraries like cuDF (GPU-enabled Pandas-like dataframes) and cuML (GPU-accelerated machine learning algorithms). We will demonstrate how to use Jupyter Notebooks on Comet to accelerate Data Science workflows with RAPIDS using interactive computing methods. In particular, if you use pandas and/or scikit-learn extensively, you’ll definitely want to attend this webinar. This webinar will use the Zoom conferencing system. You should receive an email with connection details a few days prior to the event. Please send any questions to training-info@sdsc.edu.
