No fancy GPU processor? No time to leave your machine crunching for endless hours on a single machine learning task? Problems installing the endless dependencies your model requires? No problem.

Google Colab Notebooks are Jupyter Notebooks that run in the browser, using $10/month cloud GPU infrastructure from Google. …

Goals for this course material

I recently taught a series of workshops on Machine Learning at Pacific Northwest College of the Art’s Make+Think+Code program, and thought I’d make my course materials available online, with 3…
