Theano in win 10 with minimal effort.
I decided to experiment a little with neural networks and didn’t want to bother installing Linux to do so.
The official Theano instructions for windows installation however seem a bit overwhelming and slightly tedious.
Here’s what worked for me instead (keep in mind I already had numpy, Microsoft Visual C++ Compiler for Python 2.7 and Visual Studio installed):
- Install mingw (I used the 32 bit installer) and put the bin directory on the system path
- Install CUDA toolkit
- Use a pre-built scipy installer
- pip install theano
I tested the install with the test gpu script from the official documentation which worked (it used the GPU).
