Now is the time to register for Arm TechCon 2018, happening October 16-18 at the San Jose Convention Center. The agenda for the conference is now available and includes over 70 hours of sessions with seven technical tracks.
One of the highlights is a hands-on workshop with Arm Cortex-A CPU and Mali Graphics technology titled Accelerating & Optimizing Machine Learning on Arm Cortex-A on Wednesday, October 17, at 3:30 PM.
The workshop is a two-hour, hands-on session introducing the 96Boards HiKey 960 development board. It covers how to create images and install the Ubuntu Linux distribution for Arm as well as how to build and run machine learning examples based on the Arm Compute Library and the Arm NN software developer kit. The first 40 attendees will receive a free board to take home and continue learning.
Machine learning (ML) application development is typically done using frameworks like TensorFlow, Caffe, Caffe2, or PyTorch. Python is often used to create and train deep learning models. For mobile and embedded applications, the created models need to be transferred to client and embedded hardware and executed on Arm CPUs and GPUs. The workshop explores how Arm software can help machine learning applications perform better on Arm hardware.
Arm Streamline is a performance analysis tool that can help software engineers optimize ML on Arm. During the workshop the performance of ML applications running on the HiKey 960 will be explored. This is a great way to develop and prototype on the latest Arm technology and analyze application performance.
Perfect for engineers who want to learn about:
If you enjoy embedded Linux on Arm and are curious about how to create ML applications put the workshop on your TechCon calendar. Make sure to get there early to secure your spot and free HiKey 960 board. Attendees should be familiar with embedded Linux and have some experience with the Linux command line, scripting, and C/C++ development.
