I started part1 a few days back. I was trying to see if I can run lesson1 on my laptop. I had already installed Python3, Cuda, cuDNN, Keras, TensorFlow and more when I did the “getting started” section of TensorFlow. I tweaked some .py scripts in the repo to get it work with Python3 and Keras2.X.X and I think I got it working. I then hit a lot of issues that boil down to insufficient memory. The GPU on my laptop doesn’t have decent spec. It has 2GB of memory. I tried reducing batch size to 4 and still got error “Dst tensor is not initialized”. This error also seems to stem from out of memory.
So question, is there a minimum recommended hardware for this tutorial? Are there any Keras/TF settings that I can change to help.
I’ve created an AWS account and requested for p2 to move forward. But I still want to see if I can tinker a bit and get this to run on my laptop!!
