TensorFlow 1.10.1

TensorFlow™ is an open source software library for numerical computation using data flow graphs. Nodes in the graph represent mathematical operations, while the graph edges represent the multidimensional data arrays (tensors) communicated between them. The flexible architecture allows you to deploy computation to one or more CPUs or GPUs in a desktop, server, or mobile device with a single API. TensorFlow was originally developed by researchers and engineers working on the Google Brain Team within Google's Machine Intelligence research organization for the purposes of conducting machine learning and deep neural networks research, but the system is general enough to be applicable in a wide variety of other domains as well.

Accessing the software

To load the module, issue the following command:

$ module load TensorFlow/1.10.1-foss-2018b-Python-3.6.6

To load the module with GPU capability, issue the following command:

$ module load TensorFlow/1.10.1-fosscuda-2018b-Python-3.6.6

TensorFlow is a Python package. It needs to be imported into your Python script to be used:

import tensorflow

Accessing Previous Versions

Wherever possible, previous versions of this application will be retained for continuity, especially for research projects that require a consistent version of the software throughout the project. Such versions, however, may be unsupported by IT Services or the applications vendor, and may be withdrawn at short or no notice if they can no longer run on the cluster - for example, essential operating system upgrades may be incompatible with old versions.

A previous version of this application is recorded below:

Known Problems & Limitations

  • Tensorboard is not available on the batch system due to needing a web browser to view visualisations, which is not supported on this service.

Other Information

The Support Level for this application is An.
