Installing cuDNN and CUDA Toolkit on Ubuntu 20.04 for Machine learning tasks


It is always convoluted and challenging to install a CUDA toolkit and library that needs to interact with your NVIDIA GPU on an Ubuntu machine. However, if done right, the CUDA toolkit harnessing your NVIDIA GPU can be a great tool that can harness the power of GPU to produce fast applications. The basic requirement for following instructions in this article is a computer with Ubuntu 20.04 installed with an NVIDIA GPU. In my case, it was NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti.

Khadas VIM3 NPU ToolKit Release & Video Demo


We've reviewed VIM3 with Android 9 shortly after launch, but until recently it was not possible to leverage the NPU since the software was not quite ready yet. The goods news is that Khadas has now released the NPU toolkit for both VIM3, and the cheaper VIM3L boards. The toolkit works in host PCs running Ubuntu 16.04 or 18.04 with Tensorflow framework, and inference can run on both Linux and Android OS in Khadas VIM3/3L board. It includes an Inception v3 sample with 299 299 sample photos, among other demos. You'll find documentation to get started with model conversion and inference in Linux on Khadas Wiki.

Historically, the community, led by community expert Jono Bacon, helped direct Ubuntu's path forward. Bacon left Ubuntu six years ago, and since then, the community's role has diminished.
