Have a look at the Documentation for notes on usage.
Furthermore, you can find some useful examples in the
examples folder which
can help you to get started.
It is recommended to use Conda to setup a new environment with tensorflow and GPU support. To install with GPU support, run
conda create -n lfcnn python=3.8 tensorflow-gpu=2.2 tensorflow numpy scipy imageio h5py cudnn cudatoolkit conda activate lfcnn
Then, install the provided package using
pip install lfcnn
Optionally, for some of LFCNN’s features, install the following:
matplotlib(via conda or pip)
pymongo(via conda or pip)
Installation on Windows¶
LFCNN is mostly compatible with all TF versions TensorFlow >= 2.0,
however there is a bug in tf.keras that causes OOMs with data generators
(which LFCNN uses) and multithreading and -processing.
Therefore, we specify
tensorflow >= 2.2 as a dependency,
for which this bug has been resolved.
However, as of July 2020, TF 2.2 and TF 2.3 are not released on Anaconda for Windows. So for Windows, it is necessary to install TF via pip. However, installation of the compatible cuDNN and CUDA should still be performed via conda for simplicity. To setup the new environment with the correct CUDA and cuDNN versions, run
conda create -n lfcnn python=3.8 numpy scipy imageio h5py cudnn=7.6.5 cudatoolkit=10.1 conda activate lfcnn pip install tensorflow==2.3 tensorflow-gpu==2.3
Furthermore, the Visual C++ redistributable has to be installed on Windows.
Finally, install LFCNN via pip as usual:
pip install lfcnn
You can manually run the tests using
$ pytest <path-to-lfcnn>/test/
$ pip uninstall lfcnn
If you are interested in contributing to LFCNN, feel free to create an issue or fork the project and submit a merge request. As this project is still undergoing restructuring and extension, help is always welcome!
