Due to work restrictions, I have been using Tensorflow CPU version for all of my development. However, with model training taking several hours, I have been fininding the development cycle a bit slow. I was therefore on the lookout for some GPU machines that I could try and see what speedup I got. Google Colab is a great free resource for development and even model training on GPUs (and TPUs). I have been using Tensorflow 2.

I am a Senior Scientist at the UK Met Office, using machine learning to develop and improve the physics in the weather and climate model. I specialise in radiative transfer with remote sensing applications. In short, I create mathematical and physics models to make sense of data.
