I am in the process of scoping the budget for a project that I want to embark on which will involve large-scale 3D reconstruction from satellite images. I will need more than my desktop PC to handle the memory requirements and to the expedite computational time required to solve the large scale non-linear least squares “bundle adjustment” optimization problems associated with multiple-view image reconstruction.
I know that some of you (in particular Economists) regularly use Julia and cloud computing to conduct large-scale simulations for your experiments. I believe some of those experiments even run for a matter of days. I would be grateful if you could share some of your experiences with running Julia in the cloud, and in particular the ballpark costs associated with running your experiments.
