Aurora Learning Paths: Intel Extensions of Scikit-learn to Accelerate Machine Learning Frameworks

Intel Sci-Kit Learn Learning Path Series
Intel Sci-Kit Learn Learning Path Series

Scikit-learn is among the most useful and robust libraries for machine learning, providing a selection of tools for ML and statistical modeling via a consistent interface in Python, including classification, regression, clustering, and dimensionality reduction. In this session, Solution Architect Bob Chesebrough, will showcase the Intel® Extension for Scikit-learn and how to use it to speed up on CPUs, with only a few lines of code, many Scikit-learn standard ML algorithms such as kmeans, dbscan, and pca. He’ll also address how changing a few lines of code can target these same kernels for use on GPUs.

Key takeaways:
• Where to get and how to install the Intel extension, part of the Intel® oneAPI AI Analytics Toolkit 
• Example scikit-learn algorithm speed up over stock scikit-learn
• Demonstration of the single line of code that enumerates all the Intel-optimized scikit-learn functions
• How to apply the functional patch to turn on Intel Extensions for Scikit-learn
• How to apply the dpctl command to offload data and computation to an Intel GPU
• Describe upcoming hands-on workshops for deeper dives
