Alternative to Colab Pro: Comparing Google's Jupyter Notebooks to Gradient Notebooks
Google Colab Pro is a substantial improvement to free-tier Colab but there are still a number of limitations that make alternatives to Colab Pro like Paperspace Gradient appealing.
Comparison: SageMaker Studio Notebooks and Paperspace Gradient Notebooks
AWS SageMaker Studio Notebooks are feature-rich and yet present a number of difficulties when getting started and when trying to understand pricing. Here we take a look at the favorable and unfavorable comparisons with Gradient Notebooks from Paperspace.
Comparison: Google's AI Platform Notebooks and Paperspace's Gradient Notebooks
Google AI Platform Notebooks are enterprise-grade notebooks best suited for those with compliance concerns who need to ingest data from GCP sources like BigQuery. Gradient is more like Google's other notebook product Colab but with advanced features.
Comparison: Azure ML Notebooks and Gradient Notebooks
In general, Azure notebooks are best for those who'd like to take advantage of starter credits from Microsoft or for those who are already entrenched in the Azure computing ecosystem while Gradient is best for running Free CPU and GPU instances without a lot of startup time or hassle.
Reproducible machine learning with PyTorch and Quilt
In this article, we'll use Quilt to transfer versioned training data to a remote machine. We'll start with the Berkeley Segmentation Dataset, package the dataset, then train a PyTorch model for super-resolution imaging.
