Getting Started with Dask

Mitali Sanwal, Saturn Cloud

Dask is a powerful Python framework for running code in parallel across multiple machines, speeding up tasks like model training. While parallel computing might seem intimidating, Dask is easy to get started with. In this talk, we’ll show you how to harness the power of Dask with Saturn Cloud. You'll learn how to write code to run on multiple machines, use Dask collections, and spin up a Dask Cluster on Saturn Cloud.

RStudio x Saturn Cloud Meetup

Rachael Dempsey, RStudio | Jacqueline Nolis, Saturn Cloud

Saturn Cloud is a platform for data scientists to analyze, model, and collaborate. The platform just launched full R support so now you can use RStudio on Saturn Cloud with terabytes of memory, over a hundred cores, or with a GPU. In this meetup we'll walk through the basics of using Saturn Cloud for high powered analysis and code deployment by writing code in RStudio that utilizes a GPU with Keras or parallel processing with futures.

Intro to Neural Networks in R

Jacqueline Nolis, Saturn Cloud

Thanks to packages like Keras, you can get started with neural networks with only a few lines of R code. Once you understand the basic concepts, you will be able to use deep learning to make AI-generated humorous content! In this talk, I give an introduction to deep learning (including on a GPU) by showing how you can use it to make a model that generates weird pet names.

Getting Started with Dask Using Saturn Cloud

Mitali Sanwal

Dask is a powerful Python framework for running code in parallel across multiple machines, speeding up tasks like model training. While parallel computing might seem intimidating, Dask is easy to get started with. Saturn Cloud, the data science cloud platform, is great for quickly spinning up a Dask cluster to use. In this talk, we'll show you how to harness the power of Dask with Saturn Cloud.

Using Dask and many GPUs to train a neural network with PyTorch

Jacqueline Nolis, Saturn Cloud

I took a neural network I had trained on a single CPU to generate pet names and tried retraining it with tons of connected GPUs using Dask, PyTorch, and the package dask-pytorch-ddp. I learned a lot about when is the right time to use multiple GPUs and what the pitfalls can be. In this talk I'll discuss what these lessons mean for training with GPUs and Dask.

Dask DataFrame groupby. Why it can fail and how to compensate.

Hugo Shi, Saturn Cloud

Dask DataFrame groupby operations are very common and very powerful. However due to the distributed nature of Dask DataFrames, they can fail in unexpected ways. This talk covers mitigation strategies for these problems, including using set_index to optimize data layout, and using split_out and split_every parameters to optimize computation.
