Accelerating open machine learning research with Cloud TPUs

  • Our goal is to ensure that the most promising researchers in the world have access to enough compute power to imagine, implement, and publish the next wave of ML breakthroughs.
  • We’re setting up a program to accept applications for access to the TensorFlow Research Cloud and will evaluate applications on a rolling basis.
  • The program will be highly selective since demand for ML compute is overwhelming, but we specifically encourage individuals with a wide range of backgrounds, affiliations, and interests to apply.
  • The program will start small and scale up.

Researchers need enormous computational resources to train the machine learning models that have delivered
recent advances in medical imaging, speech recognition, game playing, and many other domains. The TensorFlow
Research Cloud is a cluster of 1,000 Cloud TPUs that provides the machine learning research community with
a total of 180 petaflops of raw compute power — at no charge — to support the next wave of breakthroughs.
