PyTorch Distributed Training

In this blog post, I would like to present a simple implementation of PyTorch distributed training on CIFAR-10 classification using DistributedDataParallel wrapped ResNet models. The usage of Docker container for distributed training and how to start distributed training using torch.distributed.launch would also be covered.

My Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens molted

In the evening, while checking on the tarantulas I keep, I noticed that the Chromatopelma cyaneopubescens had molted! Since it had been refusing food for several weeks and been lethargic I already suspected that it was in pre-molt.

In the above photo you can see a part of the cast off exoskeleton in the top centre.

I will try to feed this little one after 7-10 days, so it can properly recover from the molting process.
