Hacking the Hackathon using FastAI and IPEX

Your chances of winning a hackathon competition are directly proportional to the number of experiments that you conduct. Learn how we quickly iterated between testing ideas and models, and analyzing errors, to ace the AI for Social Good Hackathon at Intel Innovation 2022. We will show how we used fastai to quickly build a starting point, and how we leveraged Intel’s AI tools and frameworks optimizations, that are powered by oneAPI, to accelerate training and inference on the CPU so we could iterate more quickly. This approach let us focus on problem solving instead of software engineering.
