It has become an industry standard tool for both deep-learning research and production grade application development. Step 0 — Basic house-keeping: Before starting the… Continue reading Install notes — Tensorflow in Ubuntu 18.04 LTS with Nvidia CUDA
Why Python Is Great: Subprocess — Running Linux Shell From Python Code.
Python is a brilliant object oriented programming language. In artificial intelligence/deep-learning circles, Python is often referred to as the default language (lingua franca) of artificial intelligence. But, the charm of Python extends way beyond running highly complicated deep-learning code. Python is first and foremost a general purpose programming language. One of the key features of… Continue reading Why Python Is Great: Subprocess — Running Linux Shell From Python Code.
