Help me suggesting the best free gpu platforms to the tensorflow code

Hi There,

This is Santhosh, While I’m running the neural networks in laptop it is taking arround 46mins to run each epoch. So please me in suggesting best free gpu platform where i can run my code fast enough.


Load the base model

base_model = Xception(weights=‘imagenet’, include_top=False, input_shape=IMG_SIZE + (3,))

Add new layers on top of the base model

x = base_model.output
x = GlobalAveragePooling2D()(x)
x = Dense(1024, activation=‘relu’)(x)
x = BatchNormalization()(x)
x = Dropout(0.5)(x)
x = Dense(512, activation=‘relu’)(x)
x = BatchNormalization()(x)
x = Dropout(0.5)(x)
predictions = Dense(1, activation=‘sigmoid’)(x)

This is the model we will train

model = Model(inputs=base_model.input, outputs=predictions)

Freeze the layers of the base model

for layer in base_model.layers:
layer.trainable = False

Compile the model

model.compile(optimizer=Adam(), loss=‘binary_crossentropy’, metrics=[‘accuracy’])

Hi @Santhosh_Hari ,

Welcome to the TensorFlow Forum ,

For running neural networks more efficiently, there are several free GPU platforms you can consider:

  1. Google Colab

  2. Kaggle Notebooks

  3. Google Cloud Platform

Thank you !

The best free GPU platforms for running TensorFlow code are Google Colab, Kaggle, and Gradient by Paperspace. These platforms offer free GPU resources and are user-friendly, making them ideal for developing and testing TensorFlow models.
