Deep Learning on AWS

Standard

This will be a very short post. But yesterday I spent some time trying to manually set up gpu on AWS.My reflections:

  1. Use someone else’s AMI see http://erikbern.com/2015/11/12/installing-tensorflow-on-aws/ for example.
  2. I had a lot of trouble updating cudnn from nvidia to work with the newest keras. I expect this to improve in the next version.
  3. Use spot instances they are much cheaper!
  4. There seems to be some cumbersome setup cost with modern deep learning frameworks. So using a GPU is a long way from being super easy.
