As such, I find it useful to test different frameworks (such as Keras, PyTorch, Tensorflow…). This lead me to using Docker, and in particular ufoym/deepo image as it provides a very complete environment.

I use a remote machine with GPUs, where I have Docker installed. When programming and testing some code snippets, I find it really helpful to use Jupyter. I had previously used Jupyter locally… but question here was how could I remotely use Jupyter running on a another machine. …
