First post here, just getting started in deep learning and AI, appreciate any help with this.
I’m trying to get started with deep learning/machine learning/AI. I recently bought a jetson Nano 2GB (4GB is out of stock), and began working on the DLI course. Though the background information is really interesting (as is the AI podcast which I regularly listen to), I feel really let down by the jetson nano. I’ve struggled immensely to get it up and running (from not having a suitable wifi connection, slow internet and then really really slow processing times), i’m almost at the point of giving up on the getting started with Jetson Nano course. I’ve just done the emotions model but the system crashes (every time) when I try to evaluate it in real time. So i’m pretty close to giving up on the jetson nano until a 4GB version becomes available.
Having said that, I really don’t want to give up on deep learning and I think the tutorials are laid out in a really good way.
I’d like to enrol on the ‘Getting Started with Deep Learning’ course, but as it’s another $90 I wanted to check and see if i’d run into the same pitfalls as I have on my jetson (so hence this post). I am using a MacBook Pro M1 2020. Which is a really great system but using Arm64 architecture. I know that Tensor Flow is only written for x86 architecture however, I have managed to successfully install it through Rosetta 2 and into a virtual environment. I have run other packages such as mediapipe this way and it works really well.
As the MacBook Pro doesn’t use an Nvidia graphics card (I believe it’s an ‘integrated GPU’) I wasn’t sure if this would pose any initial barrier to deep learning.
If you could advise me on this it would be greatly appreciated.
