Getting Started With TensorFlow

Vivek Kalyanrangan shows us how to install TensorFlow:

Installing Tensorflow with GPU requires you to have NVIDIA GPU. AMD video cards are not supported with tensorflow. NVIDIA uses low level GPU computing system called CUDA. It is an NVIDIA proprietary software.

One can go the OpenCL way with AMD but as of now it won’t work with tensorflow.

Also, all NVIDIA devices are not supported. Here is a list from the NVIDIA documentation listing the supported GPUs.

By the end of it, Vivek also shows us a simple trained model.

Native Math Libraries And Spark ML

Zuling Kang shares with us how we can use native math libraries in netlib-java to speed up certain machine learning algorithms in Apache Spark: Spark’s MLlib uses the Breeze linear algebra package, which depends on netlib-java for optimized numerical processing.  netlib-java is a wrapper for low-level BLAS, LAPACK, and ARPACK libraries. However, due to licensing issues with runtime proprietary binaries, neither the Cloudera distribution of […]
