Creating a Virtual Cloud Network (VCN) in OCI

Virtual Cloud Network (VCN) is a virtual network in which you can create subnets, route tables and gateways for your compute instances the same way you do in your traditional network. This makes it easy to copy the topology of your network to the OCI. There are two options for creating VCN in OCI: Create Virtual Cloud Network only: Creates a Virtual Cloud Network only. You’ll still need to set up at least one subnet, gateway and route rule to have a working Virtual Cloud Network.Create Virtual […]

Face Recognition API with OCI – Part 1

You may have noticed that I’m studying Machine Learning (including Deep Learning). In my study I like to implement codes from other developers or create some codes from scratch. If you also study about facial recognition you may have heard about Facenet. Facenet is a Tensorflow implementation for face recognition that you can integrate into your projects, and I used it to create my Face Recognition API. In this first article, you will learn how to use my facial recognition API with […]

Creating compartments and policies in OCI

Compartments make it easier to manage cloud resources because the resources within it can only be accessed or managed by users who have permissions. For example, you can organize compartments by project or cost center. Policies are used to grant permissions to users / groups / etc, to manage resources within a compartment. Before creating the compartments, we need to create a new user. Create a new group, too. Don’t forget to associate them. Generate a new temporary password, too. […]

Creating users and groups in OCI

From now on, I will start writing about Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), you will learn from the creation of users and groups to the configuration of high availability architectures. If you are following me on LinkedIn, you probably know that, since last month, I am an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure 2018 Certified Architect Associate. With these posts, I will try to help others reach the same goal. So let’s start! In this post, you’ll learn how to create new users and groups. […]

Exposing Keras as REST API

In my last blog post about Keras, you learned how to use the Kaggle dogs-vs-cats dataset. But would you like your friends to use your model to identify dogs and cats in pictures? Yes, this blog post is about it! You’ll learn how to expose your model as a REST API in a simple way. Lets go! We’ll use the code created in “Using Kaggle datasets” by adding a modification to save the model. Then, download all the files and run the jupyter notebook to train and save your model. […]

Installing Anaconda in OCI GPU instance

Now that you know how to create an Oracle Cloud Infrastructure GPU instance, the next steps are install Anaconda and use Jupyter Notebook to develop or test your AI projects. First of all, go to your Oracle Cloud Account and add the following Ingress Rule in your Security List (Networking > Virtual Cloud Networks > Virtual Cloud Network Details > Security Lists > Security List Details). Using a Terminal, access your Ubuntu instance and download the latest version of Ananconda. […]

CPU vs GPU in Oracle Cloud

If you read my blog post called “Optimizing TensorFlow for CPU“, you learned that you can improve TensorFlow for CPU by just choosing the correct distribution, in this case the Anaconda distribution. CPU instances will do the work for simple AI projects, but if you need more computing power to reduce the execution or training time of your project, you need to use GPU instances. Since many people have asked me to run the same test using GPU instances, in this post you will see the […]
