Example how to run a Caffe instance on EC2
Trying to run Caffe on EC2
Complete instructions to configure an Ubuntu EC2 g-instance up to have Caffe and ffmpeg which is enough to create deep dream inception videos. These are my notes, take them for what they are.
Good for applying: * https://github.com/google/deepdream (haven't run this yet) * https://github.com/graphific/DeepDreamVideo (this one's scripts need a bit of care)
To use: * Start an EC2 instance * A g instance such as g2.8xlarge instance (cheaper if you go for spot instances) * OS: Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS (HVM), SSD Volume Type - ami-5189a661 (Amazon's current offering) * Must go to instance details to make sure you have more storage (I used 64GB) * Follow the many steps in steps.txt

To the Caffe project: * http://caffe.berkeleyvision.org * BVLC AMI: https://github.com/BVLC/caffe/wiki/Caffe-on-EC2-Ubuntu-14.04-Cuda-7
An alternative is a ready to go Docker image (I have not tested this): * https://github.com/VISIONAI/clouddream
