About this Event

This is an exclusive invitation to a Technical Session held in collaboration between AISG and Intel software.

DATE: 14 October, 2019 (Monday)

TIME: 6.15pm – 9.00pm (Dinner is provided)

VENUE: innovation 4.0 (Seminar Room, Level 1)

In this session, you will discover how Intel® Distribution for Python* delivers high performance Python that is highly optimized for Intel® architecture and aims to drive Python performance closer to native code speeds. Learn how to use the Intel Distribution for Python as a first step towards faster Python applications, followed by Intel VTune Amplifier for a deeper analysis on the performance. You will also see how you can use this distribution with Intel® Data Analytics Acceleration Library for faster machine learning.

Topics covered in the session on Intel’s AI Tools as part of Intel Parallel Studio XE:

  • Software optimization with Intel Parallel Studio XE and its components
  • Intel Distribution of Python – Intel Python on Xeon – for out of the box performance
  • Data Analytics Accelerator Library
  • Vtune and performance profiling for algorithms
  • Intel optimized frameworks
