I want to use
keras in RStudio Cloud, and I need to decide which version of Tensorflow to install. What is the machine in which RStudio Cloud runs? It's clearly a 64 bit Linux machine, and I know from other threads that it has 1 Gb RAM and 3 GB HD space. However, I'd like to know:
- is a GPU available (don't think so)?
- which is the CPU? When training a model, I get the message
2018-10-02 22:42:38.780968: I tensorflow/core/platform/cpu_feature_guard.cc:141] Your CPU supports instructions that this TensorFlow binary was not compiled to use: AVX2 FMA
Thus I was wondering if I could try to compile Tensorflow from source in order to get a speedup....the compiling environment in RStudio Cloud seems to be setup pretty well (
gcc works flawlessly whenever I need to compile a package from source) thus I may attempt Tensorflow compilation through the RStudio terminal.
PS great cloud environment, it's currently one of the best possible ways to run R! You get a great IDE, up-to-date package versions and the latest (or near-latest) R version, without having to install a single file on your local machine!
