Training neural networks (deep learning) is very compute-intensive. Fast GPUs can make those sessions, which sometimes
take hours, days or weeks go orders of magnitude faster. However, laptops usually don't come with the fastest GPUs and having
to maintain a desktop machine only to occasionally run deep learning tasks is extra hassle.
Cloud providers now offer virtual machines (VMs) with GPUs which run in data centers and can be used by anybody on an hourly basis.
Below is a quick tutorial that walks through setting up a VM in Microsoft Azure with the necessary drivers
to train neural networks using TensorFlow.
First, if you haven't done so already, create an Azure account, install the Azure 2.0 command line interface (CLI)...
