Best Way to Set up Mac for doing Small AI projects?

I am interested in doing some ML projects (NLP, CV).

I was trying to use the online version of Jupyter notebook, however I ran into the issue where either the Kernal would fail while importing Tensorflow or it would return a error- " ModuleNotFoundError: No module named ‘tensorflow’ "

Does anyone have any suggestions on tutorials i could follow to set up either my Mac with an M1 chip or jupyter to do some projects?

TensorFlow and related libraries has been a moving target on the M1; it was a real struggle when I set mine up a year + ago. You could start here Tensorflow Plugin - Metal - Apple Developer and also read in the developer forum linked from that page to see what the current state is. The process and experience is totally different if you’re trying to install the x86 version and run through the emulator.
