"An awesome platform for Machine learning "

What do you like best?

1. Just upload your python code and related input files of your Machine learning model in the Google Drive, and start running your code in Colab Notebook.

2. You can select GPU to accelerate the speed of your code to take advantage of multi-threading/processing features of GPU.

3. Store the results in Google Drive.

4. Very easy to use. Your google drive is just like a folder on your PC, and Colab Notebook is like a python interpreter. Combination of both makes your machine learning model execution on the cloud very simple.

And after the run, you can just download your results file from the Google drive.

5. Since everything runs on the server, there is no load on your PC. Your PC can be used for other tasks simultaneously.

6. If you don't have more RAM on your PC, You can easily run the computationally intensive task on Colab Notebook with GPU.

7. You can add the text in your Notebook along with the code, and share the Notebook.

What do you dislike?

1. Please add a python file editor in the Google drive so that we don't have to modify the python files locally and upload it to Google drive and then rerun on Colab Notebook. It becomes frustrating when there are frequent changes required in the code.

2. Sometimes Colab Notebook doesn't recognize the edited code file and runs on the previous version of the file. To overcome this, I need to refresh the google drive and Colab notebook every time I re-upload the edited python file to the Google Drive.

3. Can't run python code that does intensive computation on the big dataset. (Memory related error comes)

4. The execution sometimes takes a long time even with GPU.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommended to run the Computational Intensive tasks of your Machine learning model if you don't have a PC with HIGH RAM and GPU.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using it to run Machine learning code.

(Greatly benefitted by it for one of my projects. I was bound my computation power of my PC and this platform helped me a lot in running computational intensive task)

"It's a good data analysis tool but it's missing a few things"

What do you like best?

This is a great tool for basic analysis in collab. I had a few issues with codes and functions, but overall a good tool. It's missing some big components that other analysis tools have, including data studio from Google. The best feature is it's integration with Google Drive, being the main reason I used this tool.

What do you dislike?

Too many issues with codes, not an easy tool to deal with. Steep learning curve if you're not in the coding field. Drive integration is good, just not that great as expected. It takes quite some time to get to the core features of this tool and to be able to use it in general.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Read all characteristics to see if this is the right tool for your needs, try implementing it as a trial first because it will take up too much time for a non-coding to basic coding team.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used this tool for research data analysis, this is a group work so Colaboratory was a great start to try finding a tool to meet all our needs.

What G Suite Development Tools solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Excellent cloud based notebooks"

What do you like best?

- Can share code easily

- Eager execution of code

- Awesome syntax highlighting

- Ability to see code and its results as small chunk

What do you dislike?

- Sometimes kernel restarts automatically

- Sometimes syntax highlighting is slow

- Python 2/Python 3 support is sometimes choked now. Not that is bothers me a lot. Although, of course, it would be way more convenient for us to have this resolved sooner than later. A bit, a little bit of inconvenience for now. Not a big deal though. Don't sweat over it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

- Awesome work

- Cloud support could be improved

- Language support and syntax highlighting could be improved

- Kernel going down issue could be resolved

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- Share code with colleagues

- Use tensorflow 2.0 with eager execution

- Use tensorflow 2.0 with autograph

"Great tool for improving your coding skills"

What do you like best?

Google Colab has me excited to try machine learning in a similar way as using Jupyter notebooks, but with less setup and administration. Not only is this a great tool for improving your coding skills, but it also allows absolutely anyone to develop deep learning applications using popular libraries such as PyTorch, TensorFlow, Keras, and OpenCV.

What do you dislike?

Google colab appears to be very slow at loading images from my google drive to use in a convolutional neural network. Also, it supports Python 2.7 and 3.6, but not R or Scala yet. There is a limit to your sessions and size, but you can definitely get around that if you’re creative and don’t mind occasionally re-uploading your files

Recommendations to others considering the product

Colab provides GPU and it’s totally free. Seriously!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My business creates notebooks in Colab, we upload notebooks, store notebooks, share notebooks, mount your Google Drive and use whatever we've got stored in there, import most of our favorite directories, upload our personal Jupyter Notebooks, upload notebooks directly from GitHub, upload Kaggle files, and download our notebooks. Colab is ideal for everything from improving your Python coding skills to working with deep learning libraries.

Solving putting both code and text together within one major output. Has streamlined my team. I simply love the fact that data can be uploaded straight from google drive. Most importantly to my small business and team, is this product is free and allows us to create efficiencies in the workplace where I haven't found any other paid or non paid tools that can get the job done like this one.
