Date: 12 December 2021
Timetable: 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Location: SIIT Via Greto di Cornigliano, 6r (Genoa)
Organiser: NCC Italia (Cineca and Leonardo)

Typology: High performance innovation

The course will go into detail on modern Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques used in research and production, focusing both on the theory behind algorithms and on practical examples run on a supercomputer. The codes that will be written and executed during the course will cover both training and predictions using artificial neural networks on a large and small scale. Natural Language Processing and Computer Vision techniques will also be analyzed.
