Using Intel Distribution for Python in Spyder 3.6

Greetings,

I am excited to launch a new career in Data Science and have been studying online courses at Udemy, and Elite Data Science.  I have also been studying Python and R simultaneously, which is very exciting as well.  I coded in C++ for a few year and created several Desktop applications for Windows during my career with Hewlett Packard, so I have some background in OOP.  I also coded in C#, utilizing the .NET Core framework in Visual Studio 2019.  

I am at the phase of my journey where I need to find a stable coding environment for my Data Science development process. I downloaded Anaconda 3 and have been using R Studio and Spider for my R and Python, respectively.  I recently found the Intel Algorithms and installed the Distribution for Python, however, I am having a challenge getting Visual Studio 2019 working with Python as it does with Spyder.  So, my question is the following:  

1.  Is it possible to work in Spyder with Intel Distribution for Python?

I tried to set the Intel Distribution for Python as my Python interpreter in the Spyder Tools/Preferences/Python interpreter, but that is not working because the kernel is failing or not responding.

Any guidance or recommendations that I can get to get a stable development for Python Data Science, utilizing the intel algorithms would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Thanks for reaching out to us.
In order to solve your issue regarding spyder, could you please try out the below steps

Step 1: Create a virtual environment in Anaconda with required Intel Distribution for python. 
            For that, You need at least conda 4.1.11, so first update your conda using :  

 conda update conda

   To get Intel packages over default packages, add the Intel channel as follows :        

 conda config --add channels intel

   To install the latest full Intel python distribution :

 conda create -n idp intelpython3_full python=3

        
Step 2: Activate your virtual environment with  

 activate idp

      
Step 3: Now, you have the virtual environment with intelpython installed.  Now you have to install spyder additionally for the new environment with this command (after the activation of the environment with the command above):

 conda install spyder

    
Step 4: After successful installation of spyder, launch the spyder from the current environment, just type:

 spyder

Step 5: If you get any dependency issue while launching spyder like this

      Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "C:\Users\cjanardx\AppData\Local\Continuum\anaconda3\envs\IDP\lib\site-packages\qtpy\__init__.py", line 204, in <module>
        from PySide import __version__ as PYSIDE_VERSION  # analysis:ignore
    ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'PySide'

    During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "C:\Users\cjanardx\AppData\Local\Continuum\anaconda3\envs\IDP\Scripts\spyder-script.py", line 10, in <module>
        sys.exit(main())
      File "C:\Users\cjanardx\AppData\Local\Continuum\anaconda3\envs\IDP\lib\site-packages\spyder\app\start.py", line 186, in main
        from spyder.app import mainwindow
      File "C:\Users\cjanardx\AppData\Local\Continuum\anaconda3\envs\IDP\lib\site-packages\spyder\app\mainwindow.py", line 48, in <module>
        requirements.check_qt()
      File "C:\Users\cjanardx\AppData\Local\Continuum\anaconda3\envs\IDP\lib\site-packages\spyder\requirements.py", line 41, in check_qt
        import qtpy
      File "C:\Users\cjanardx\AppData\Local\Continuum\anaconda3\envs\IDP\lib\site-packages\qtpy\__init__.py", line 210, in <module>
        raise PythonQtError('No Qt bindings could be found')
    qtpy.PythonQtError: No Qt bindings could be found
     
    Solve it using: 

   pip install msgpack
   conda install qt=5.6 pyqt=5.6 sip=4.18
 


Step 6: After launching the spyder IDE, run the below command in the IPython console of spyder

 import sys
 print(sys.executable)


        check whether it takes the python interpreter from the virtual environment that you have created.

Hello,

 

thank you so much for the detailed instructions.  I followed them to the best of my ability, starting with:

1.  Installed Anaconda from its Web download link (64 Bit).

2.  Tested launching Spyder with the new installation successfully.

3.  Open-up the Anaconda command Line as the logged-on user, which is a member of the Administrator group on windows 10 (latest updated version).

4.  From that (base) c:\users\Johnny.DATA>, I started the process posted above to the point where I called Spyder.  I did not receive any errors, but Spyder did not launch.  Is there any other troubleshooting that I can do to figure out why Python is not launching in this new environment?

BTW, I ran another test where I installed a new, clean environment and then Launched Spyder successfully; Following this successful launched, I then installed the intel tools like this: conda install intelpython3_full   -->  Python would not run after that install.

Posted below is what my Command Window looks like from the Spyder installation:

Hi,

Thanks for responding. We need some more information to debug the issue.

  1. Could you please clarify whether the following steps worked without errors before calling "spyder" command.
    conda create -n idp intelpython3_full python=3
    activate idp
    conda install spyder
    
  2. Please note that if you are installing "intelpython3_full" separately and not within the conda create command you should perform that step before launching spyder.

    activate idp
    conda install intelpython3_full
    conda install spyder
    spyder
    
  3. After successful launch of spyder you can check the environment as in the attached screenshot.

Please provide the output of "conda list " command after activating environment if you are still facing any issues.

Hope this helps. 

Thanks.

Hi,

Thank you for responding; I am having trouble getting the integration to work on my local area; for some odd reasons, I am unable to reach a succesfull development environment with the Intel distribution for Python.  I am sure it is probably a small gap that I can't figure out, but I am willing to keep at it until I am able to get it working.   When I reached the End of the installation, I typed spyder and it spins for a few seconds, and then nothing happened...

 

 I have been at it for two days so far.  Here is what I am doing for your verification:

-----------------------------------------------------  installation starts here --------------------------------

Hi,

Thank you for your response.

From your conda list we found the versions of the packages as "pyqt = 5.9.2  , qt = 5.9.6 , sip =  4.19.8 ". Please uninstall these and try installing the following specified version of the packages.

pyqt = 5.6 , qt=5.6 , sip=4.18

Kindly use the below commands to install the required versions,

conda install pyqt=5.6

Through this command qt=5.6 and sip=4.18 will get installed by default.

Thank you for your research.  I was also doing some research on my side, while I waited for your reply.  I had a much newer PC in my Office, a Dell XPS with an Intel Core i7-8700 chip, enhanced with 32 Gig of RAM.  I installed Anaconda on it and when I looked at the Environment area, there was a CondaEnv that was already created.  I cloned it into an Intel Environment and installed the latest version of Spyder (4.0) and Daal4py.   Spyder started right up and I was able to run some code with the dall4py library.  Once I discovered this working environment, I copied the environment and its contents and dropped it into the Conda envs folder of my two Home Office PCs. that was having trouble with Spyder and Daal4py, etc...  At home, I only needed to reinstall the QT libraries and I was all set to go with Spyder 4 on all my computers.   Joyful - joyful...  This is a typical starter library set that I am able to use to test and train my data.  I have not done too much yet, since I am still learning, but, I am ready to start learning with daal4py for Python and Microsoft R Open and its libraries for R.  Thank you so much for your support and response.

# install.packages("numpy")
import numpy as np
import matplotlib
from matplotlib import pyplot as plt
import pandas as pd

import daal4py as d4p
from daal4py import kmeans_init

Hello Chithra,

I have not had a chance to run some meaningful analysis yet; I was preparing my environment for doing just that.  So, since you asked; would yo mind sending me a link to a nice training article or data set with instructions that I can use to practice with daal4py?

All the articles that I have read so far takes for granted that I am already well versed in data science and know much more than lead on,. so I am mostly lost in translation and do not fully comprehend most of the jargon or instructions from the articles.For example, take a look at these two amazing pages from Intel about the new code upgrade that was sent out yesterday:

https://software.intel.com/en-us/mkl

https://software.intel.com/en-us/get-started-with-daal-for-windows

They are both GREAT and I would love to tackle them, but they flew right above my head right now.

Please feel free to point me to a more simpler direction that I can crawl into...

Warmest regards.

Johnny
