Notebook - Which environment is used to run Notebooks ? CPU only or with GPU?

When running a notebook in the Notebook section of DLS, which environment is used to run Notebooks ? CPU only or with GPU ?

Jupyter notebook is run in the same environment in which DLS runs. So it has access to Keras 1.2.2 with MxNet backend. If DLS had access to GPU so would be the Jupyter notebook.

Right that make sense. Just needed to be sure.

On an other subject, I installed Keras 2 from a notebook. But it does not work cause MXNet is not a possible backend with the version of Keras that was installed. Normal ? Keras 2 does not support MXNet for now ?

The official Keras 2 does not yet support MXNet backend. MXNet team has created a fork of Keras 2 with MXNet backend. Currently it is in beta.

to install it, use pip install keras-mxnet

Thanks for the info. I’ll give a try.
