Course overview

HPC2N is offering an ONLINE course; "Using R in an HPC environment". This course will be two half-days.

There is interest among R users to get started in High Performance Computing (HPC) as they need more CPU power, memory or both. Because most of the Machine Learning (ML) models in R are computationally demanding, they are a good starting point to introduce HPC concepts. In the present course, you will learn how to improve your code so that it could run more efficiently on a Desktop and also in an HPC environment. As realistic ML models are computationally expensive when running on a Desktop, we will also teach you how to run these models on Kebnekaise, a HPC cluster at our center. The focus of the course will not be about ML though.

There will be both lectures and hands-on parts of the course.

The course will be done through Zoom.

Participation is open to all existing and prospective users of HPC from Swedish institutions.
