Did you try preemptive vms, a lot cheaper.

I tried, but still… I prefer coffee to increase blood pressure. :slight_smile:
I was very unlucky with this feature: “Compute Engine gives you 30 seconds to shut down when you’re preempted”.

OK I understand it:)

Resnet originally was trained on 224 and 299 sizes

Also, what is better bigger bs or bigger image size ???

I was playing with some models and results were interesting many times counter-intuitive


Coffee not that good for you either :slight_smile:
So far I was lucky didn’t loose my data…

From fastai GCP setup guide:

According to our benchmarks, a K80 is 84% slower than a P4

There are two interesting things to follow up. Math course and the ML course I’m thinking about Math by Rachel.

link for today’s virtual meetup at 20.00

apologies but i will not be able to make it today, but the link above will be ready for you!

are you interested to continue the virtual meetups in the future? to practice the part 1 material and get ready for part 2? we could meet 1/month, 1/3-weeks, 1/2-weeks or so, let me know!

Hmm… maybe meanwhile we could work together on some small project? Could works better (than just talking) as “practice the part 1 material” :wink:


Yes! Makes perfect sense. We could team up for kaggle comp or do you have any project ideas?
