To get the most out of this book
You will need to install PyTorch/TensorFlow successfully on your system. For distributed workloads, we suggest you at least have four GPUs in hand.
We assume you have Linux/Ubuntu as your operating system. We assume you use NVIDIA GPUs and have installed the proper NVIDIA driver as well. We also assume you have basic knowledge about machine learning in general and are familiar with popular deep learning models.
If you are using the digital version of this book, we advise you to type the code yourself or access the code from the book's GitHub repository (a link is available in the next section). Doing so will help you avoid any potential errors related to the copying and pasting of code.
