TPU Research Cloud
Accelerate your cutting-edge machine learning research with free Cloud TPUs.
The TPU Research Cloud (TRC) program was previously known as the TensorFlow Research Cloud (TFRC). Anyone enrolled in TFRC is automatically included in the TRC program.Apply now
Learn more about the TRC program
TRC enables researchers to apply for access to a cluster of more than 1,000 Cloud TPUs. Researchers accepted into the TRC program will have access to v2 and v3 devices at no charge and can leverage a variety of frameworks including TensorFlow, PyTorch, Julia and JAX to accelerate the next wave of open research breakthroughs.
Machine learning researchers around the world have done amazing things with the limited computational resources they currently have available.
We'd like to empower researchers from many different backgrounds to think even bigger and tackle exciting new challenges that would be inaccessible otherwise.Apply now
Use Cloud TPUs for free, right in your browser
If you’d like to get started with Cloud TPUs right away, you can access them for free in your browser using Google Colab. Colab is a Jupyter notebook environment that requires no setup to use.
We’re excited to help researchers and students everywhere expand the machine learning frontier by making Cloud TPUs available for free.Learn more about Cloud TPUs
Cloud TPUs: Built to train and run ML models
Cloud TPU hardware accelerators are designed from the ground up to expedite the training and running of machine learning models. The TPU Research Cloud (TRC) provides researchers with access to more than 1,000 Cloud TPUs, each of which can provide up to 180 (v2) or 420 (v3) teraflops of ML acceleration.Learn more about Cloud TPUs
