GPU Bootcamps are an exciting and unique way for scientists and researchers to learn the skills needed to start quickly accelerating codes on GPUs. Held as a virtual event across four days in October, this event will introduce you to available GPU libraries and frameworks through extensive hands-on collaboration for running end to end Computer Vision Application. 

The attendees will be exposed to accelerating the AI cycle: Training to Deployment using NVIDIA SDK such as Pytorch-lightning, Hydra, Distributed Training, Automatic Mixed Precision, TensorRT and Triton Inference Server.

Event Format 

This four-day Bootcamp will be hosted online in the India Standard Time (IST) zone. All communication will be done through Zoom, Slack, and email.


  • Basic experience with Python. No GPU programming or AI knowledge is required.
  • This event has limited capacity, and is open to IIT Delhi users working in Computer vision Application using Artificial Intelligence only.

Compute Resources 

Attendees will be given access to IIT-Delhi GPU cluster for the duration of the Bootcamp.
