Potatoes Cluster: Training a Deep Learning Model Using a 100 Potatoes
01 April, 2021
Have you ever heard about battery potatoes? Did you know that it is also possible to process information using potatoes? In this post we are going to show you how it’s possible to create a cluster of potatoes, that not only serves as a power supply but also processes data in a very cheap way. With that, we could achieve the performance of a Nvidia GTX 1060 using 100 potatoes connected with nails and clips. Building the Cluster In order to build our cluster, we are going to need some other item
