PyTorch provides multiple functionalities that aid in building a neural network – abstracting the various components using high-level methods and also providing us with tensor objects that leverage GPUs to train a neural network faster.
Before installing PyTorch, we first need to install Python, as follows:
- To install Python, we'll use the anaconda.com/distribution/ platform to fetch an installer that will install Python as well as important deep learning-specific libraries for us automatically:
Choose the graphical installer of the latest Python version 3.xx (3.7, as of the time of writing this book) and let it download.
- Install it using the downloaded installer:
Next, we'll install PyTorch, which is equally simple.
