Issue faced while training the model on my macbook air #92
I need to know how long it will take and if my machine is weak for it then is there a way by which i can speed this up?
thank in advance
@Zulqurnain24 INTEL HD Graphics 6000 card in your MacBook doesn't support CUDA, so running Tensorflow on CPU is extremely slower than running on GPU. I'm not surprised that after 9 hours you haven't seen anything, it took a while for me to make the first 1000 iterations appear, using a Titan X (and totally it took almost 5 hours to train). So, there is no way to upgrade your machine, but you can use some GPU instances by AWS, Google Cloud or Azure to run the training process. Then you can do the inference on your machine, running on CPU (but don't expect to work on large image sizes, considering you have just 4GB of RAM).
