Chris Fregly



Distributed Spark ML + Tensorflow AI + GPU Workshop

Morning | 09:00 - 13:30


We will each build an end-to-end, continuous Tensorflow AI model training and deployment pipeline on our own GPU-based cloud instance.

At the end, we will combine our cloud instances to create the LARGEST Distributed Tensorflow AI Training and Serving Cluster in the WORLD!

A GPU-based cloud instance will be provided to each attendee as part of this event!!


Just a modern browser, and a good night’s sleep!

We’ll provide the rest.

Nature of the training:
