Need of AWS

Hi there

I am a newbie in Deep Learning and all these new cutting edge technology. So my question is very basic.

In the very first video, Jeremy demonstrates how to set up AWS for Deep Learning. My question is I have got NVIDIA GeForce 820M and total memory 6GB with/in my laptop, do I still need to set up AWS account for deep learning? Or I am all set and good to jump into the Lesson 1.

You are fine to use that, but you still have to set up all the fun stuff to make it work like tensorflow/theano and CUDA. There is a setup script from Azure somewhere on these forums that likely could help.

@sml0820: Thanks for the information!

I am looking for help from other learners who set up tensorflow/theano and CUDA and the script. Hope someone will help me out.

Thanks once again.
