Can NCS2 accelerate training?

Hi,

 

I would like to accelerate training of neural network on Tensorflow in Jupyter Notebook. Instead of buying expensive external GPU, can NCS2 be used for that purpose?

 

Cheers,

 

Jay

No. Training can not be done on NCS2.

 

It is more efficient to simply purchase a GPU or borrow GPU instances such as GCP, AZURE, AWS.
