Conda + Google Colab

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.

Google's TPU's being primed for the Quantum Jump

The liquid-cooled Tensor Processing Units, built to slot into server racks, can deliver up to 100 petaflops of compute.

As the world is gearing towards more automation and AI, the need for quantum computing has also grown exponentially. Quantum computing lies at the intersection of quantum physics and high-end computer technology, and in more than one way, hold the key to our AI-driven future.

Quantum computing requires state-of-the-art tools to perform high-end computing. This is where TPUs come in handy. TPUs or Tensor Processing Units are custom-built ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuits) to execute machine learning tasks efficiently. TPUs are specific hardware developed by Google for neural network machine learning, specially customised to Google’s Machine Learning software, Tensorflow.

The liquid-cooled Tensor Processing units, built to slot into server racks, can deliver up to 100 petaflops of compute. It powers Google products like Google Search, Gmail, Google Photos and Google Cloud AI APIs.

Just a quick intro to google colab

Google colab is a cloud service that offers FREE python notebook environments to developers and learners, along with FREE GPU and TPU. Users can write and execute Python code in the browser itself without any pre-configuration. It offers two types of cells: text and code. The ‘code’ cells act like code editor, coding and execution in done this block. The ‘text’ cells are used to embed textual description/explanation along with code, it is formatted using a simple markup language called ‘markdown’.

Embedding Images in markdown

If you are a regular colab user, like me, using markdown to add additional details to your code will be your habit too! While working on colab, I tried to embed images along with text in markdown, but it took me almost an hour to figure out the way to do it. So here is an easy guide that will help you.

STEP 1:

The first step is to get the image into your google drive. So upload all the images you want to embed in markdown in your google drive.

Step 2:

Google Drive gives you the option to share the image via a sharable link. Right-click your image and you will find an option to get a sharable link.

On selecting ‘Get shareable link’, Google will create and display sharable link for the particular image.

What Are Google Compute Engine ? - Explained

The Google computer engine exchanges a large number of scalable virtual machines to serve as clusters used for that purpose. GCE can be managed through a RESTful API, command line interface, or web console. The computing engine is serviced for a minimum of 10-minutes per use. There is no up or front fee or time commitment. GCE competes with Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and Microsoft Azure.
