Abstract: 

While research is often a compute-intensive activity, most researchers are not IT experts. That’s why the AWS Research Cloud Program helps you focus on science, not servers – all with minimal effort and maximum confidence that your data and budget are safe in the AWS Cloud. 

The AWS Research Cloud Program was built by scientists at AWS to enable easy use of AWS resources by their fellow researchers in the scientific community around the globe in any of the 190 countries where AWS is available. 

Dr. Liu Dongping. Graduated from the Institute of Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences with a Ph.D, will introduce how to accelerate training model with billions of parameters and how AWS support research in higher education.
