I hope the section is correct. I’m a PhD student and with my research group we’re starting to work on Machine Learning. I’m writing here for some advice on the hardware choice, as we have little expertise in this field and we need to set up a dedicated lab.
We will work on training of neural networks. We will use Tensorflow and Pytorch but we won’t work on images. Our budget is up to 2k$, possibly slightly less. Up to now I think our options are going either for a Jetson Xavier AGX or more simply for a PC with a good graphic card. To sum up, my questions are the following:
- Is there any clear advantage in using a Jetson Xavier instead of a normal PC?
- Which kind or series of graphic card are the most suitable for this kind of task? (training NN, no images)
- Is the CUDA technology implemented and exploitable in all these solutions?
Thanks in advance for your help!
