I have tried to improve performance of Theano via using Intel distribution for python; however, it looks like this process is pretty tricky. Although I created a separate environment under conda named IDP and installed intel-python, nothing special happens with Theano.
If you download IDP betta and install and then try to run Theano, eventually you get errors during compilation of code.
If someone can suggest the right way to make these two great SW work together, it would be really great. Thank you in advance.
Intel includes theano 1.0 in the recent Intel® Distribution for Python 2017 Update 2. You can check the details about the theano version and all the included and updated packages in the Release Notes PDF here: https://software.intel.com/sites/default/files/managed/ec/c7/Intel_Distribution_Python2017U2_Release_Notes.pdf
