and pay ~70% less

It’s simple: a well-performing deep learning model = more than 1 training session for searching for good hyper-parameters of all sorts = big expenses.
So how do you train on a budget? Ideally, the first thing on your list should be optimizing the process to avoid wasted electricity.
