Azure's Deep Learning Virtual Machine
(DLVM) with GPU its super easy for student and academic to now setup a real time detection system and thanks to the work Jamie has been doing here is a quick guide to getting your own DLVM setup working with YOLO.
All students now get a FREE Azure Account with no credit card required which give $100 of Azure credit so this is great way to try a small experiment into deep learning
