    ZeRO & Fastest BERT: Increasing the scale and speed of deep learning training in DeepSpeed webinar

    The latest trend in AI is that larger natural language models provide better accuracy; however, larger models are difficult to train because of cost, time, and ease of code integration. With the goal of advancing large model training by improving scale, speed, cost, and usability for model developers across the world, Microsoft made the DeepSpeed library open source in February of 2020. In this webinar, the DeepSpeed team will discuss what DeepSpeed is, how to use it…

    Discovering hidden connections in art with deep, interpretable visual analogies webinar

    Image retrieval systems allow individuals to find images that are semantically similar to a query image. This serves as the backbone of reverse image search engines and many product recommendation engines. Restricting an image retrieval system to particular subsets of images can yield new insights into relationships in the visual world. In this webinar, Microsoft Research Development Engineer Mark Hamilton presents a novel method for specializing image retrieval systems called conditional image retrieval. When applied over large…

  1. Picture of Sai vemprala promoting his webinar on AirSim

    Harnessing high-fidelity simulation for autonomous systems through AirSim webinar

    In this webinar, Sai Vemprala, a Microsoft researcher, will introduce Microsoft AirSim, an open-source, high-fidelity robotics simulator, and he demonstrates how it can help to train robust and generalizable algorithms for autonomy. He will explain the features of Microsoft AirSim while giving an overview of some research projects that have benefited from AirSim, particularly focusing on robotics and how these algorithms are trained with simulated data but are capable of working in real life. He will…

    Quantum-safe cryptography: Securing today’s data against tomorrow’s computers webinar

    In this webinar, Principal Program Manager Christian Paquin, a cryptography specialist in the Security and Cryptography group at Microsoft Research, will present recent progress in the development of a quantum-safe cryptography. Quantum-safe cryptography is being developed using mathematical problems believed to be more difficult for a quantum computer to solve than such existing methods as factoring and discrete logarithms.

    Post-quantum cryptography: Supersingular isogenies for beginners webinar

    In this webinar led by Microsoft researcher Dr. Craig Costello, you will examine why post-quantum cryptography is so critical as we move closer to realizing quantum computing, and you will learn the basics of supersingular isogeny Diffie-Hellman (SIDH), which is one of the popular candidates for post-quantum key exchange. The best known classical and quantum algorithms for attacking the SIDH protocol have exponential runtimes, which is why SIDH has the lowest bandwidth requirements of all the…

    Microsoft ElectionGuard—enabling voters to verify that their votes are correctly counted webinar

    In this webinar with Dr. Josh Benaloh, Senior Principal Cryptographer at Microsoft Research, learn how the ElectionGuard technology works and how anyone can write an independent verifier that processes all of the artifacts produced by ElectionGuard. Specifically, understand how verifiers can either confirm that the announced tallies are fully consistent with the recorded votes or identify specific inconsistencies that should be addressed. Finally, examine how ElectionGuard uses techniques like homomorphic encryption to achieve its properties…
