Job Scheduling on Hoffman2 Cluster

November 4, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Zoom

This talk is about the practice of effectively running jobs on the Hoffman2 cluster. We will first review the model and policy of Hoffman2’s job scheduling, followed by how to use the job scheduler (software), Univa Grid Engine. A number of common use cases will be discussed in details, including: (1) Single-CPU jobs, (2) Multi-CPU, same-node jobs, (3) Multiple-node (MPI-style) jobs, (4) Job arrays and (5) High-priority jobs (on research groups' purchased nodes).

Using SQL with Python for Data Analysis

November 5, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Zoom

SQL is a standard language designed to query and extract data from tables stored in a database. Python, on the other hand, has well-known libraries specially designed for data analysis and manipulation. This course will introduce attendees to the basics of how to integrate SQL and relational database management systems with Python for data analysis. Basic experience with SQL and Python will be useful. If you have questions regarding the workshop, please contact Ben Winjum.

Deep Learning, the Good, the Bad and the Ugly

November 8, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Zoom

This workshop is a remake for the general introduction about deep learning in our previous "Learning Deep Learning with PyTorch" workshop series. In this talk, we will talk about the deep learning and neural network from a different perspective. After a very brief introduction on what machine learning and deep learning are, our discussion will be focused on what deep learning technology can (and cannot) bring to the academic research, including both the benefits and the challenges. No specific prerequisite knowledge is required.

Common Data formats: How to Access Them Programmatically

November 29, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Zoom

Storing data in an open-standard format ensures the data’s long-term readability and reusability, which is an important component of achieving reproducible computing. In this class we will explore a number of common data formats, learn about their structures and show how to access them programmatically. The data formats considered include: CSV (several variants), JSON, XML, Excel and HDF5. The Python and Julia languages will be used in the programming examples.
