Set Up

Get started with Dotscience

Installation and set up

1. Create a user account for the cloud platform

Collaboration features, performance visualisations, version histories, and other information about your tracked models can be accessed via the Dotscience cloud platform in your web browser. To start, go to and sign up.

2. Set up your runner

When you use Dotscience, your models run on a designated machine called a runner. This means that the underlying compute will be handled by whichever machine you choose as the best fit for your needs, including powerful cloud instances or GPUs. You can use (just about) any computer as the runner: your laptop or local server, or a VM on the cloud. You need to tell Dotscience about your runner so that it can track and version your models.

Pick a runner setup guide from this section corresponding to your runner location. If you want to use a cloud VM as your runner, the guides in this section will point you in the right direction to set one up.

A Set up your AWS VM or your Google Cloud VM

B Attach your Runner to Dotscience

C Expose GPUs on your runner (optional)
