On Ubuntu 14.04, install the required packages by

sudo apt-get install cmake
sudo pip install --upgrade tensorflow-gpu


The project uses to execute commands for compiling code and running training and testing programs. For installation, execute

./ build_op

in the project directory to compile the custom TensorFlow operators written in C++. To remove the compiled binaries, execute

./ clean_op
