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) that flow between them. This flexible architecture lets you deploy computation to one or more CPUs or GPUs in a desktop, server, or mobile device without rewriting code. 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. The system is general enough to be applicable in a wide variety of other domains, as well.
To install the CPU version of TensorFlow using a binary package, see the instructions below. For more detailed installation instructions, including installing from source, GPU-enabled support, etc., see here.
The TensorFlow Python API currently requires Python 2.7: we are working on adding support for Python 3.
The simplest way to install TensorFlow is using pip for both Linux and Mac.
For the GPU-enabled version, or if you encounter installation errors, or for more detailed installation instructions, see here.
# For CPU-only version $ pip install https://storage.googleapis.com/tensorflow/linux/cpu/tensorflow-0.5.0-cp27-none-linux_x86_64.whl
# Only CPU-version is available at the moment. $ pip install https://storage.googleapis.com/tensorflow/mac/tensorflow-0.5.0-py2-none-any.whl
$ python >>> import tensorflow as tf >>> hello = tf.constant('Hello, TensorFlow!') >>> sess = tf.Session() >>> print sess.run(hello) Hello, TensorFlow! >>> a = tf.constant(10) >>> b = tf.constant(32) >>> print sess.run(a+b) 42 >>>
