Held on December 6 & 7 from 1:30 - 5:00 p.m. CT, the Groq AI Workshop will introduce users to the novel AI accelerator deployed at the ALCF AI Testbed. This workshop targets researchers at universities, national labs, and industries working on open science. 

The hands-on training sessions will introduce users to the GroqRack system architecture and software stack and help researchers start their science campaigns using the system at the ALCF.

Topics include:

  • An overview of GroqRack hardware and software stack
  • Using GroqFlow and running models on the system
  • Deep dive on large language models
  • Using the MLAgility tool - Best Practices

NOTE: Any researcher with an ALCF account is encouraged to attend and participate in the hands-on session. However, if you are new to the ALCF, you can attend the webinar, but will not be able to log into the system to participate.
