Astronomy Data And Computing Services - Upskilling the Australian astronomy community https://dresa.org.au/materials/astronomy-data-and-computing-services-upskilling-the-australian-astronomy-community The Astronomy Data And Computing Services (ADACS) initiative has been working with the Australian astronomy community for just over 3 years now. Our vision is to deliver astronomy-focused training, support and expertise to maximise the scientific return on investments in astronomical data & computing infrastructure. During these last 3 years, we have delivered dozens of face-to-face, hands-on workshops and created several hours worth of online tutorial materials. This talk will focus on our journey to deliver this computational skills training to the community, exploring how we chose different delivery pathways and content, based both on community input as well as our professional expertise and understanding of existing skill gaps. Most importantly we will discuss our plans for the future and how we are working on actively including the community in developing new training material beyond the usual skills survey. Come along to this talk if you would like to hear about a national effort to deliver computational skills training and would like to know more about potential new avenues to provide just-in-time training and how to collaborate with ADACS.  Kathryn Unsworth (kathryn.unsworth@ardc.edu.au) astronomy, data skills, eresearch skills, skills, computational skills, training, skills gaps, astronomy-focused training, training material

Accelerating skills development in Data science and AI at scale https://dresa.org.au/materials/accelerating-skills-development-in-data-science-and-ai-at-scale At the Monash Data Science and AI  platform, we believe that upskilling our research community and building a workforce with data science skills are key to accelerating the application of data science in research. To achieve this, we create and leverage new and existing training capabilities within and outside Monash University. In this talk, we will discuss the principles and purpose of establishing collaborative models to accelerate skills development at scale. We will talk about our approach to identifying gaps in the existing skills and training available in data science, key areas of interest as identified by the research community and various sources of training available in the marketplace. We will provide insights into the collaborations we currently have and intend to develop in the future within the university and also nationally. The talk will also cover our approach as outlined below •        Combined survey of gaps in skills and trainings for Data science and AI •        Provide seats to partners •        Share associate instructors/helpers/volunteers •        Develop combined training materials •        Publish a repository of open source trainings •        Train the trainer activities •        Establish a network of volunteers to deliver trainings at their local regions Industry plays a significant role in making some invaluable training available to the research community either through self learning platforms like AWS Machine Learning University or Instructor led courses like NVIDIA Deep Learning Institute. We will discuss how we leverage our partnerships with Industry to bring these trainings to our research community. Finally, we will discuss how we map our training to the ARDC skills roadmap and how the ARDC platforms project “Environments to accelerate Machine Learning based Discovery” has enabled collaboration between Monash University and University of Queensland to develop and deliver training together.

9 Reproducible Research things - Building Business Continuity https://dresa.org.au/materials/9-reproducible-research-things-building-business-continuity The idea that you can duplicate an experiment and get the same conclusion is the basis for all scientific discoveries. Reproducible research is data analysis that starts with the raw data and offers a transparent workflow to arrive at the same results and conclusions. However not all studies are replicable due to lack of information on the process. Therefore, reproducibility in research is extremely important. Researchers genuinely want to make their research more reproducible, but sometimes don’t know where to start and often don’t have the available time to investigate or establish methods on how reproducible research can speed up every day work. We aim for the philosophy “Be better than you were yesterday”. Reproducibility is a process, and we highlight there is no expectation to go from beginner to expert in a single workshop. Instead, we offer some steps you can take towards the reproducibility path following our Steps to Reproducible Research self paced program.

Porting the multi-GPU SELF-Fluids code to HIPFort https://dresa.org.au/materials/porting-the-multi-gpu-self-fluids-code-to-hipfort In this presentation by Dr. Joseph Schoonover of Fluid Numerics LLC, Joe shares their experience with the porting process for SELF-Fluids from multi-GPU CUDA-Fortran to multi-GPU HIPFort. The presentation covers the design principles and roadmap for SELF and the strategy to port from Nvidia-only platforms to AMD & Nvidia GPUs. Also discussed are the hurdles encountered along the way and considerations for developing multi-GPU accelerated applications in Fortran. SELF is an object-oriented Fortran library that supports the implementation of Spectral Element Methods for solving partial differential equations. SELF-Fluids is an implementation of SELF that solves the compressible Navier Stokes equations on CPU only and GPU accelerated compute platforms using the Discontinuous Galerkin Spectral Element Method. The SELF API is designed based on the assumption that SEM developers and researchers need to be able to implement derivatives in 1-D and divergence, gradient, and curl in 2-D and 3-D on scalar, vector, and tensor functions using spectral collocation, continuous Galerkin, and discontinuous Galerkin spectral element methods. The presentation discussion is placed in context of the Exascale era, where we're faced with a zoo of available compute hardware. Because of this, SELF routines provide support for GPU acceleration through AMD’s HIP and support for multi-core, multi-node, and multi-GPU platforms with MPI. training@pawsey.org.au AMD, GPUs, supercomputer, supercomputing

Embracing new solutions for in-situ visualisation https://dresa.org.au/materials/embracing-new-solutions-for-in-situ-visualisation This PPT was used by Jean Favre, senior visualisation software engineer at CSCS, the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre during his presentation at P'Con '21 (Pawsey's first PaCER Conference). This material discusses the upcoming release of ParaView v5.10, a leading scientific visualisation application. In this release ParaView consolidates its implementation of the Catalyst API, a specification developed for simulations and scientific data producers to analyse and visualise data in situ. The material reviews some of the terminology and issues of different in-situ visualisation scenarios, then reviews early Data Adaptors for tight-coupling of simulations and visualisation solutions. This is followed by an introduction of Conduit, an intuitive model for describing hierarchical scientific data. Both ParaView-Catalyst and Ascent use Conduit’s Mesh Blueprint, a set of conventions to describe computational simulation meshes. Finally, the materials present CSCS’ early experience in adopting ParaView-Catalyst and Ascent via two concrete examples of instrumentation of some proxy numerical applications. training@pawsey.org.au ParaView, GPUs, supercomputer, supercomputing, visualisation, data visualisation

Part 1 consists of a lecture-demo about text processing and a hands-on session for attendees to learn how to clean a dataset. Part 2 consists of a lecture introducing Recurrent Neural Networks and a hands-on session for attendees to train their own RNN. The Powerpoints contain the lecture slides, while the Jupyter notebooks (.ipynb) contain the hands-on coding exercises. This workshop introduces natural language as data for deep learning. We discuss various techniques and software packages (e.g. python strings, RegEx, NLTK, Word2Vec) that help us convert, clean, and formalise text data “in the wild” for use in a deep learning model. We then explore the training and testing of a Recurrent Neural Network on the data to complete a real world task. We will be using TensorFlow v2 for this purpose. datascienceplatform@monash.edu Deep learning, NLP, Machine learning

Visualisation and Storytelling https://dresa.org.au/materials/visualisation-and-storytelling This workshop explores how data visualisation techniques could be utilised to better understand data and to communicate research efforts and outcomes. The workshop covers a broad range of techniques from simple and static 2D graphics to advanced 3D visualisations in order to provide a broad overview of the tools available for data analysis, presentation and storytelling. We explore, among others, animated charts and graphs, web visualisation tools such as scrollytellers, and the possibilities of 3D, interactive, and even immersive visualisations. We use real world, concrete examples along the way in order to tangibly illustrate how these visualisations can be created and how viewers perceive and interact with them. We also introduce the various tools and skill sets you would need to be proficient at presenting your data to the world. By the conclusion of this workshop, you would gain familiarity with the various possibilities for presenting your own research data and outcomes. You would have a more intuitive understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of various modes of data visualisation and storytelling, and would have a starting point to obtain the right skill sets relevant to developing your visualisations of choice. datascienceplatform@monash.edu data visualisation, storytelling

Semi-Supervised Deep Learning https://dresa.org.au/materials/semi-supervised-deep-learning Modern deep neural networks require large amounts of labelled data to train. Obtaining the required labelled data is often an expensive and time consuming process. Semi-supervised deep learning involves the use of various creative techniques to train deep neural networks on partially labelled data. If successful, it allows better training of a model despite the limited amount of labelled data available. This workshop is designed to be instructor led and covers various semi-supervised learning techniques available in the literature. The workshop consists of a lecture introducing at a high level a selection of techniques that are suitable for semi-supervised deep learning. We discuss how these techniques can be implemented and the underlying assumptions they require. The lecture is followed by a hands-on session where attendees implement a semi-supervised learning technique to train a neural network. We observe and discuss the changing performance and behaviour of the network as varying degrees of labelled and unlabelled data is provided to the network during training. datascienceplatform@monash.edu Deep learning, Machine learning, semi-supervised

We start by learning the basics of deep learning including what a neural network is, how information passes through the network, and how the network learns from data through the automated process of gradient descent. Workshop attendees would build, train and evaluate a neural network using a cloud GPU (Google Colab). In part 2, we look at image data and how we could train a convolution neural network to classify images. Workshop attendees will extend their knowledge from the first part to design, train and evaluate this convolutional neural network. datascienceplatform@monash.edu Deep learning, convolutional neural network, tensorflow, Machine learning
