Conda is the recommended environment and package management solution for a number of popular data science tools including Pandas, Scikit-Learn, PyTorch, NVIDIA Rapids and many others. Conda also dramatically simplifies the process of installing popular deep learning tools like TensorFlow.
Google Colab is a free service providing interactive computing resources via a user interface that is very similar to Jupyter notebooks, runs on Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and provides free access to GPUs and TPUs. Google Colab is a great teaching platform and is also perhaps the only free solution available for sharing GPU or TPU accelerated code with your peers. Unfortunately, Conda is not available by default on Google Colab and getting Conda installed and working properly within Google Colab’s default Python environment is a bit of a chore.
