If you want to use FakeApp but lack the hardware... (8GB+ RAM Windows machine with a CUDA compatible NVIDIA GPU (2gb+ RAM) & 10GB+ free space on C:\)Then you can use Google Cloud GPU services. They are currently offering $300 of free credit to new users. (Enough for a month of testing).To access GPU services, you must "upgrade" your account & also submit a request for a GPU. Approval takes 12-48hrs. I'll walk you through:
Google Cloud VirtualGPU Tutorial
Use Google’s link for a $300 free trial. Set up your account. Click "Create an empty project". Name your project. Click Upgrade Account (This is important! It's usually the notification at the top of the screen.) IAM & admin > Quotas. Location> deselect all regions > select your region only (europe-west4 for Netherlands) ❊ If you see "Global" regions only: Go to Compute Engine > Settings > Default location > and select "europe-west4" for both zone & location. (a,b,c, doesn't matter). Then go back to quotas and complete the previous step. Ctrl+F "NVIDIA P100 GPU" ❊ To reduce costs, you can select a Preemptible GPU, which cannot run for more than 24 hours at a time, and can be terminated by Google at any time if someone else needs the resource. ❊ If you are doing this step in another region, you might have access to the slightly smaller and cheaper NVIDIA K80 GPU. Check this box if you selected "Preemptible NVIDIA P100GPU". Now scroll back up and click "Edit quotas" A panel will open. For "New Quota Limit" enter "1". Request description: "This GPU will be used in a one-day Deep Learning workshop. It will run for a short amount of time." Submit your request. You're done! ☀︎ 💀If you're doing this late & the workshop is starting soon: Call the helpline to bump your GPU request.
