It would be great if teams get access to Any cloud vendors. would there be any provision for the same?

I was able to get up and running for free on Google Colaboratory in about 30 mins with the following steps.

  1. Visit https://colab.research.google.com/ and create a new Python 3 notebook
  2. In the Runtime menu, select Change runtime type and then select Hardware accelerator as GPU
  3. Download the entire dataset of ~30GB using wget
wget https://s3.amazonaws.com/drivendata-public-assets/stac.tar
  1. You will find the dataset available at the path, /content/stac.tar in about 15 mins time

Hope this helps, :smiley:
