Welcome to CS With James
In this tutorial I will discuss about how to get your machine ready for studying deep learning. We are going to install lots of software packages and test run if it works.
I will user iTerm for this tutorial but you can use regular terminal.
In MacOS and Unix they come with the Python3 pre-installed, so you don’t have to install. The only thing you have to do is type
to check if the Python3 is installed. If the Python3 is installed you will see something like this.
If the Python3 is not installed in your MacOS, then you can use Brew to install the Python3
/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)"
brew install python3
In order to install TensorFlow, go to Tensorflow website for help. In the most cases you can install Tensorflow simply type
pip3 install tensorflow
for the CPU only version
pip3 install tensorflow-gpu
for the GPU version.
The latest GPU enabled TensorFlow version in MacOS is 1.1.0, so to use the most recent version of TensorFlow you need to build from the source code. however, the version 1.1.0 should be fine for learning the TensorFlow
I will post the tutorial how to build TensorFlow from the source code.
If you have successfully install the Tensorflow in your machine, then install Keras is easy.
pip3 install keras
It will automatically install the Keras.
