Thank you very much for your lovely comment, and thank you for your backing. I will do my best to communicate every step of this project here, to show how we do research and hopefully get people interested in taking up science as a career.

Creating a neural network that classifies Dinoflagellate species

Hi Skander, Thank you for your comment. Usually a network would work on my little laptop normally and start training, but the training process is very slow (several hours for 1 epoch cycle), that is when I move to a dedicated cloud based GPU since I do not have my own setup (also I have the freedom to choose different GPU types). In the case of this neural network, it is too big to even start on my computer, so I had to move to a cloud GPU directly. Luckily google provides a free GPU (for only 12 hours), so it is great to test the workings of the network and make sure the script has no errors. I have already passed this step. I also have access to a supercomputer. Though it only has CPUs to perform computation, it is large enough to emulate a GPU, but a GPU is stills better. I do not have my own system built since up to this point cloud services were enough to generate the data I need and train the networks I use, and cheaper tha. Building my own system.
