Intel® Unnati: AI Everywhere (Workshop)


In recent months, Generative AI has taken the world by storm, and organisations around the globe are gearing up to leverage its capabilities. Helping them in their quest are purpose-built AI accelerators such as Intel’s Habana® Gaudi®, which are poised to propel the Generative AI revolution by delivering tangible benefits that make training AI models more cost-effective and easier to build and scale.


On March15, 2024, we will be conducting a one-day workshop, Intel® Unnati: AI Everywhere, in collaboration with the Supercomputer Education and Research Centre (SERC) at the Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru. The workshop will feature presentations and demos by Intel India technologists, and you will get the opportunity to learn about the latest developments with regard to Generative AI. Among other things, you will understand how you can run Generative AI workloads including LLMs and Vision-Transformers at scale using Intel® Gaudi®2 Accelerators; and how Intel® Xeon® processors will help you run classic Computer Vision workloads with lesser Total Costs of Ownership (TCOs). The detailed Agenda is given below.


Intel® Unnati: AI Everywhere is the first step in an ongoing engagement that the Intel® Unnati Program will be having with participants at the workshop, and, at the workshop, we will be sharing details of the different follow-up activities that are planned. You may find the event poster here.


Please note that, as there is limited seating available at the venue, registration is compulsory, and participation will be confirmed on a first-come, first-served basis. You may also scan the below QR code to register:
