Hyperparameter Optimization

Prasanna Balaprakash, Argonne National Laboratory
Webinar Beginner
AI for Science training

Trainees will learn how to use DeepHyper for scalable and automated development of deep neural networks. They will also learn about emerging techniques to generalize structured deep neural networks to non-Euclidean domains (geometric deep learning), including: graph neural networks, graph attention networks, message passing networks and graph-to-graph transfer.

Time: February 10, 3-5 p.m. US CT

This session is a part of the ALCF AI for Science Training Series

About the Speakers
