Join me for a Deep Learning webcast tomorrow

I’ve been having a lot of fun working with the O’Reilly team on ways to open up Deep Learning to a wider audience of developers. I’m working on a book tentatively titled “Deep Learning for Hackers” (since I’m a fan of Drew and John’s work), I’ve put up some introductory chapters as articles on the O’Reilly website, and tomorrow I’ll be doing an hour-long webcast walking through the basics of training and running deep networks with Caffe.

I hope you can join me, it’s a big help whenever I can collaborate with an audience to understand more about what developers need! If you do, I recommend downloading the Vagrant box ahead of time to make it easy to follow along. I look forward to seeing you there.

  1. Hi,

    I have been using your Vagrant box and caffe runs perfect. However, when I have tried to compile it again to change debug the code I found that I have problems compiling it because of:
    “fatal error: hdf5.h: No such file or directory”

    So, I try to download it again:
    “sudo apt-get install libhdf5-serial-dev”
    but it was not found.

    So, I updated:
    “sudo apt-get update” and I found it.

    However, the compiler doesn’t the libopencv and give me another error.

    So, I try to download all the dependencies:
    “sudo apt-get install -y libprotobuf-dev libleveldb-dev libsnappy-dev libopencv-dev libboost-all-dev libhdf5-serial-dev protobuf-compiler gcc-4.6 g++-4.6 gcc-4.6-multilib g++-4.6-multilib gfortran libjpeg62 libfreeimage-dev libatlas-base-dev git python-dev python-pip”

    and I have compiled it without more errors. Furthermore, I have checked the mnist example and it works.

    I am telling it just in case anyone wants to use the Vagrant box and want to compile it.

    However, I dont understand why if it is already compilled and the code is already working why it is not possible compile it and I need to download all the dependencies again.

    • Sorry you’re hitting problems Ivan! I wouldn’t have expected recompilation to be a problem either, I’m not sure what’s going wrong, but thanks for the fix instructions.
