Gradient boosting has many real-world applications as a general-purpose machine learning technique for regression, classification, and page ranking problems. It’s a common choice for large problem sizes, yet training implementation of this method is quite complex because of the multiple kernel dependencies that impact execution time, irregular memory access, and many other issues.

If this resonates with you, register for this session to learn about Intel’s optimizations for XGBoost, with specific focus on:

  • how to speed up your boosting algorithm workloads with the Intel® AI Analytics Toolkit, powered by oneAPI
  • example training workloads that compare the performance of the latest XGBoost implementation on an end-to-end pipeline

Your hosts are Intel AI Technical Engineers Mecit Gungor and Rachel Oberman.
