Hello! I’m super-excited for this competition, and huge thanks to everyone who is working so hard to prepare and host this event!
My questions all feel pretty stupid, and I appreciate your patience with me as I struggle to get started.
I’m having trouble getting going with the starter kit and running the Torchbeast starter agent. The docs seem to indicate that the Torchbeast model is built off of Polybeast, which looks like it depends on two GPU cores. My Intel Macbook Pro does not have a GPU available. Should I focus on building my submission inside Colab (if so, is there a walkthrough for how to do that?), or port the included baseline Torchbeast starter-kit away from Polybeast and into something like Monobeast (is this too much for a beginner like me to tackle?), or is there another option that I’m missing?
I guess I’m not sure how to handle the lack of GPU, and how to get all of this starter code running. I think I’m mainly confused on if I should focus on building / running my solution inside of Docker, or if I can reasonably use Colab, or if I should install things locally in my Mac.
Thank you very much!
