TensorFlow and Iris
I ran across pandas and though it would work pretty well while I was exploring TensorFlow. It already has a lot of data reading/manipulation functionality that I was going to need to write anyway. import csv import tensorflow as tf import random import pandas as pd import numpy as np import matplotlib.pyplot as plt %matplotlib inline Initially pandas makes reading from the Iris CSV file trivial. I also like the nice tabular output in iPython.
TensorFlow MNIST with iPython
I wanted to work through the MNIST For ML Beginners tutorial and remembered using iPython many years ago. It seemed like it would be a good fit for exploring both an unfamiliar API and data.
