Try Caffe pre-installed on a VirtualBox image

A previous post showed beginners how to try out deep learning libraries by

  1. using an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) pre-installed with deep learning libraries
  2. setting up a Jupyter notebook server to play with said libraries

If you have VirtualBox and Vagrant, you can follow a similar procedure on your own computer. The advantage is that you can develop locally, then deploy on an expensive AWS EC2 gpu instance when your scripts are ready.

Start deep learning with Jupyter notebooks in the cloud

Want a quick and easy way to play around with deep learning libraries? Puny GPU got you down? Thanks to Amazon Web Services (AWS) — specifically, AWS Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) — no data scientist need be left behind.

Jupyter/IPython notebooks are indispensable tools for learning and tinkering. This post shows how to set up a public Jupyter notebook server in EC2 and then access it remotely through your web browser, just as you would if you were using a notebook launched from your own laptop.
