Speed up your LLMs with Triton

About the workshop 📚

One way that you make your LLMs faster is through GPU programming. Therefore, it becomes important to understand Triton, a programming language for writing efficient GPU code. Getting started with GPU programming can be challenging as there are very scattered resources.
This hands-on workshop aims to help participants:

  • Understand the the fundamentals of GPU architecture and its programming model.
  • Grasp the core concepts of Triton.
  • Improve your model speed.

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to optimize LLMs for better performance.

  • The workshop is of 90 mins duration.
  • This is an in-person workshop.
  • Only 35 seats are open for workshop participation.
  • Recording of the workshop will be made available for The Fifth Elephant members.

Important prerequisites to attend the workshop 📝

  1. Background in how deep learning models are trained, and a basic understanding of model inferencing.
  2. Basic understanding of the architecture of popular deep-learning models.
  3. Participants must have a notebook (with GPU support) ready with the following packages installed:
    ● PyTorch: Start Locally | PyTorch
    ● Open AI Triton: Installation — Triton documentation

If the GPU is not available in the laptop, participants can set it up in the Google Colab notebook.

Workshop outline 🗂️

  • Understanding GPU hardware.
  • Understanding the GPU programming model.
  • Coding a matmul kernel faster than PyTorch in Triton.
  • How to go from here to implement a complete model from scratch in Triton (HuggingFace free).

Who should attend this workshop 👨 💻

  • Data Scientists
  • ML engineers
  • AI engineers
  • Early career researchers

How will participants benefit from the workshop 🎓

  • Participants will gain a deeper understanding of how GPUs work and learn to write performant code for GPUs.
  • This interactive workshop will help them improve the throughput or reduce the latency of their existing models.
  • Participants can implement their models from scratch, often rivalling HuggingFace’s implementation in latency and throughput.
