The reason I wanna use Chainer:

  1. I am confused the way of install Caffe
  2. I wanna use the available Fast-CNN code

Chainer is really easy to install, just follow the home-page

If wanna use gpu in the mnist example:

  1. mnist$ python –gpu=0      GPU using
  2. mnist$ python                       CPU using


  1. Try the sample can not from chainer import training
    solution: reinstal chainer
  2. To use Cudnn and CUDA
    1. Need cudnn.h

To check it use CUDA or not

>>> from chainer import cuda
>>> cuda.check_cuda_available()

I hope to have a deep understanding of Chainer in the near future!
