Setting Up TensorFlow and Jupyter (for the Brisbane.ai Tutorials)

The easiest way (I found) to setup TensorFlow on your system is by using a Docker install. Its advantages are that it just works out of the box, all dependencies are there and you can start building deep models within minutes! Warning: it does not allow you to accelerate the learning on a GPU though!!

So here are the steps required (on Mac):

Broken Shoulder

The iCub's shoulder

The iCub's shoulder, how it should not look

So the last two days we had the IM-CLeVeR Review Meeting here in Lugano and I helped showing some of the demos to the roughly 50 people involved in the project. As usual with robotics demonstration everything that could went wrong, and while reseting the software and homing the iCub, its shoulder decided to pop, as you can see on the picture.

iCub Sim – MBP Setup Pt. 3

This is part three in the odyssey of setting up of my new MacBook Pro 13″, needed for the projects I am involved with here at IDSIA. Maybe somebody else is using similar software so here is how I setup the following libraries and tools on Snow Leopard: XCode, OpenGL(is part of OSX/XCode), Git, CMake, ACE, YARP, QT, OpenCV, ODE, BulletPhysics, and SDL. In the end I also installed pyBrain (with scipy and numpy). (Part 1 is here, and here is part 2)

ACE and YARP – Setting up a new MBP – Pt. 2

Continuing the setup of my new MacBook Pro 13″, needed for the projects I am involved with here at IDSIA. This is part 2, trying to get YARP and therefore ACE running on the OS X. Maybe somebody else is using similar software so here is how I setup the following libraries and tools on Snow Leopard: XCode, OpenGL(is part of OSX/XCode), Git, CMake, ACE, YARP, QT, OpenCV, ODE, BulletPhysics, and SDL. In the end I also installed pyBrain (with scipy and numpy).

Setting Up A New MacBookPro

Yesterday I got a new MacBook Pro 13″, yes the all fancy new one with SSD Thunderbolt and Intel i5 chip, and after some general setting up, I started to add the programming capabilities needed for the projects I am involved with here at IDSIA. Maybe somebody else is using similar software so here is how I setup the following libraries and tools on Snow Leopard: XCode, OpenGL(is part of OSX/XCode), Git, CMake, ACE, YARP, QT, OpenCV, ODE, BulletPhysics, and SDL. In the end I also installed pyBrain (with scipy and numpy). This is the first post *smile*
