failed to install Theano under Anaconda + Intel distribution for Python (win8)

Hello everyone.

I want to use Theano (actually Keras which lies on top of Theano) for the purposes of building classification / segmentation stuff. I work under windows8, and use Anaconda + Spyder (as an ide)

I decided to check whether Intel Distribution for Python may increase speed and other bottle-necks during work with Theano. So, as its suggested, I created separated environment for Intel distribution for Python using conda. I followed guidelines provided here:

https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/using-intel-distribution-for-python-with-anaconda

So far so good; but once you try to install Theano, conda says that Theano is missing in current win-64 channels.

Looks very strange. I would appreciate any concrete recommendations how to make all this stuff to be friends.

By the way, it was said recently that Intel made MKL and DAAL and other high-performance calculations / mathematical stuff very nicely integrated with Theano and Caffe....

Thanks in advance.

Hi Mikhail,

I think you started a similar thread and I provided the same answer. However, in case you are not the same Mikhail, I will provide the info here, too.

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...

In case you are subscribed to this thread, you will receive an e-mail. :)

Hi Mikhail,

Intel Python provides theano and caffe with intel optimizations, but currently it is only for linux. We want to expand to mac and windows, but don't have a definite date yet.

Hi Mikhail,

For some weird reason, I was convinced you mentioned you were working on Ubuntu... However, you were working on Windows 8... Sorry for the confusion. Robert provided you the right info.
