Cloud Machine Learning

Post by Ben10 » Sat Aug 11, 2018 4:21 pm

So I'm training a neural network, through Tensorflow, on the cloud - Cloud Machine Learning.

I tried using Google Cloud Project, Amazon and Paperspace, but both require a credit card to sign up - which I would rather not give.

So does anyone know a cloud machine learning service which I can use to train my model and does not ask for a credit card?

Thanks,

Ben10

Update:
I think that I've found a solution. So today I went down to the local bank and opened a new account, with a debit card - which in 4 days, I will use to sign up.

Good work. Yeah your post showed a valid need for a free cloud software, at least temporarily. Was struggling to come up for a solution for you

Got my debit card in the mail on Friday. Right now as I type this, I'm training a model on gcloud ml engine - hopefully it goes well :) .

Thanks for the link to the magazine - great to see what is possible with open source code.

Thanks.

machine learning is easy to use, but hard to master.

there are plenties to api,third party tools and scripts to do machine learning. it depend on what kind of algo you are looking?

what kind of network? and what kind of learning you want to achieve.

So currently I'm using tensorflow with the Object Detection API - https://github.com/tensorflow/models/tr ... _detection, to train a neural network to draw boxes around objects.

To save time I'm using transfer learning on a COCO-pretrained model. The model I used for transfer learning is ssd_mobilenet_v1_coco_2018_01_28 (http://download.tensorflow.org/models/o ... _28.tar.gz), which I believe means it uses a Single Shot Multi-box Detector (SSD) model (https://arxiv.org/abs/1512.02325), along with the mobile net model https://arxiv.org/abs/1704.04861

I made a picaxe LEARN the position of a servo and then play it back...
1/. Measure the current to the servo
2/. Monitor the current while feeding the servo feeble 'feeling' pulse rates of control
3/. SENSE the current versus the signal being fed to the servo as it is gently 'forced'
4/. REMEMBER the position desired (controlled by current dip at correct position)
5/. Play it back in a loop :)
Kind of fun circuit with essentially just a 1 ohm resistor as the sensor and some manual servo sense and control loops. With picaxe you can build all these ideas up from absolute basics.

I am also taking training in Machine learning from < a href =" http://www.cetpainfotech.com/technology ... e-learning" /> Machine learning training in Noida </a>

That's great, but Udacity does have some pretty good courses too, that have been sponsored from the likes of Google, AWS and Nividia.

Example course by Google on Udacity (IT'S FREE TOO):
