Intel® Optimization for Deep Learning Frameworks

This session helps you learn the Intel® Optimization for TensorFlow* and Intel® Optimization for PyTorch*. Demonstrations on both products give:

  • Methodologies of Intel® Optimizations
  • Guides for installation
  • Education on contributions to a performance boost for Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors
  • Exercises that show how to use these Intel Optimizations

Get a closer look at optimization methodologies from Intel (like operator optimization and fusion, parallelism, and vectorization) on the most widely used deep learning frameworks: TensorFlow and PyTorch.

A brief introduction to the Intel® oneAPI Deep Neural Network Library (oneDNN) shows how to accelerate the performance of common deep learning operators (such as convolution and pooling) on Intel® platforms.
