In this section, we will illustrate how to set up a deep learning environment on an AWS EC2 GPU instance g2.2xlarge running Ubuntu Server 16.04 LTS. For this example, we will use a pre-baked Amazon Machine Image (AMI) which already has a number of software packages installed—making it easier to set up an end-end deep learning system. We will use a publicly available AMI Image ami-b03ffedf, which has following pre-installed packages:
- CUDA 8.0
- Anaconda 4.20 with Python 3.0
