Installing Tensorflow in R

Hi Folks,

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.

Happy birthday! Pentaho Community Meeting PCM17 celebrates its 10th anniversary this November with a 3-days event full of presentations and networking. And it-novum has the honor to host the event together with Pentaho. PCM17 will take place in Mainz where everything started in 2008. Mainz is centrally located and just a 20 minutes train ride away from Frankfurt international airport.
Pentaho Community Meeting is an informal gathering for Pentaho users from around the world. We meet to discuss the latest and greatest in Pentaho products and exciting geek stuff (techie track) as well as best practices of Pentaho implementations and successful projects (business track).
PCM17 is open to everyone who does something with Pentaho (development, extensions, implementation) or plans to do data integration, analytics or big data with Pentaho. Several Pentaho folks – architects, designers, product managers – will share their latest developments with us.
The event is community-oriented and open-minded. There’s room for networking and exchanging ideas and experiences. Participants are free to break off into groups and work together.
