For reinforcement learning we are using AWS sagemaker and mxnet with gluon. Also, what is really cool is kinesis firehouse to stream real live data. Sagemaker runs in EU data Ctrs and thus no issues with GDPR.

Yes, you can. My point is that GPUs don't often speed up RL work. I was curious since reinforcement learning was mentioned specifically is AWS had any specific tools for helping with RL.

I think the overhead of loading on and off GPUs outweighs any performance gains you get.  I have custom compiled tensorflow with AVX and MMX2 on my iMac (3.2Ghz Core i5) and it seems to perform better than any behemoth I've managed to run on AWS/GCE.

So, if you have a need for reinforcement learning, AI, ML or a data scientist and are happy we build the solution within AWS. I am sure we can cut a really good deal.
