In this install note, I will discuss how to compile and install from source a GPU accelerated instance of tensorflow in Ubuntu 18.04. Tensorflow is a deep-learning framework developed by Google. 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
In a previous post I discussed how easy it was to setup machine learning libraries in python using virtual machines (vm) hosted in the cloud. Today, I am going to add more details to it. This post covers how to make machine learning code run faster. This post will help any user compile a tensorflow… Continue reading Fine tuning the cloud – Making machines learn faster.
These are my installation notes for OpenCV in Ubuntu 17.04 linux for python3. These notes will help start a computer vision project from scratch. OpenCV is one of the most widely used libraries for image recognition tasks. The first step is to fire-up the linux terminal and type in the following lines of commands. These first… Continue reading Installation notes – OpenCV in Python 3 and Ubuntu 17.04.
I have decided to migrate all of the programming environments to linux . The reason is simplicity of linux to run Python and R. I am often befuddled by common dependency issues, which linux seems to have avoided. This is especially true for Python. An added advantage is the ability to run very sophisticated deep learning… Continue reading Linux distros – The art of selecting one.
