TensorFlow up and running with CUDA 8.0. Life-saving tip: always explicitly enter your CUDA and cuDNN versions during configuration.
My first impression is TF is a bit behind Nervana Neon in terms of training speed and ease of use. Too bad the latter now belongs to Intel, which clearly wants to promote its own Pentium-based Xeon Phi over Nvidia GPU.
cuDNN and CNMeM are must-haves when training neutral networks with Theano. 2x performance gain in practical usage.
Any student interested in a workshop building computers for scientific computing? If course, these rigs are perfectly capable of an occasional match of modern gaming…

For students interested in working in the finance field, learning how to write code is more important than ever before.

Although there is an existing paid-app that automatically hides the taskbar in tablet mode, I wished for more functionalities. In particular, I want the taskbar to hide in landscape mode where vertical space is precious, but not in portrait mode where there is plenty of vertical space. I ended up writing a little application to get what I need.
Features of the application:
- Auto-hide taskbar can be turned on or off independently for each combination of tablet mode and screen orientation.
- Install for all users.
- Free and open source.
The application can be downloaded here: http://ticoneva.com/software/
