Hello Devz,

Do you want to learn more about Artificial Intelligence? Tensorflow is your best bet…

Tensorflow is a framework developed by Google which allows you to do almost everything you could imagine with AI’s.

There are different ways to use Tensorflow. Being a fan of C#, you could use TensorflowSharp. But it is known that Python is by far the easiest way to develop an AI like software.

So, for this demo I will use the Bash from Windows (or just a Linux) with Python.

First things first, installation procedure. You can follow the full procedure with this link, or just follow my shortcut:

sudo apt-get install python-pip python-dev python-virtualenv

Create the Virtual Environment:

virtualenv --system-site-packages ~/tensorflowenv

Activate the VirtualEnv:

source ~/tensorflowenv/bin/activate

Install PIP if not already done and TensorFlow via PIP:

easy_install -U pip
pip install --upgrade tensorflow

Deactivate the VirtualEnv:


Now our environment is installed. When you want to use it just activate it, and when you have finished deactivate.

Let’s run a simple example (activating your virtual environment first of course )  :

# Python
import tensorflow as tf
hello = tf.constant('Hello, TensorFlow!')
sess = tf.Session()

Go further with the next post about the basics of TensorFlow… (soon)

Happy coding!  😉
