lolbots 🙄 🤣 🤖 💩

Why not just make a bot which responds ironically to our discord server? It should train itself based on our local subgroup of freaks and weirdos. Obviously, we would make the source open for the public to scrutinize, because if we don't keep tinkering frenetically with two-star projects on Github, then we won't achieve immortality.

We could try using the DeepMoji project to somehow mix sarcasm into the intellectual brew, but we still need to investigate, and make sure that this isn't going to eat up weeks of time. I mean, we sort of coasted through that data mining course in grad school without considering the 72 Trillion Dollar AI Hype Machine that would barrel into the world a few short years after we graduated. Dear Reader, we're not machine learning experts over here. Just a curious application developer.

but really

so much love

You wanna try?

The test cases are what led us this far down the rabbit hole. Look at this test case. JUST LOOK AT IT! 💖 🐇

deepmoji test cases

OK, you get the idea. Go ahead and read more about the DeepMoji project from MIT if you want to.

So What?

We already have an NVIDIA Jetson Nano sitting on our desk computing the moves for our Goban using KataGo - a slick, community-sponsored neural net. Please don't judge us by the level of dust collecting on this lil' guy -- we're working in a very dynamic environment. 🤧

lilbrain in situ

We even created 1/3 of the necessary architecture in our recent project: we could just string up a websocket from the local NVIDIA GPU, to a cloud provider, and avoid exposing our blessed domicile's network surface to the world of trolls, bots, and whatever else. Rather than creating some sort of PULL-based situation, we would prefer to have some cloud-hosted Discord gateway push data down to the NVIDIA Nano GPU, which would then consider our chats in a Machine Learny Way, and then respond with a snarky reaction.

Install tensorflow on the NVIDIA Jetson Nano

Our Nano is still pretty lightly loaded. We tried to install several packages, hoping to follow something like the NVIDIA instructions to easily run Tensorflow. Yeah. Right.

The Woe

After about 38 minutes we've given up on the project entirely, realizing that the model we want to use only supports python 2, while the NVIDIA jetson nano (surprise!) wants us to install TF using python 3.

BUT WAIT THEY'RE STILL WORKING ON IT! Here is a forked repo with active contribution, working toward supporting python 3 and TF 2.0. Note that it's TF 2.0. Not TF 2.1.

Here is the related PR on the main DeepMoji repo.

Not So Good

Sort of fail. Try TF 2.0.0.

Others are having this same issue

THIS DOES NOT REALLY WORK, VERSIONS INCOMPATIBLE: We probably need to line up versions just so...

THIS DOES NOT REALLY WORK, CRASHES: Or we could potentially run in a container

Looks like one sure-fire fix is to build from source. In which case we would need golang so that we can install bazel

And yes, we must build bazel from source, because we're on an ARM64 platform. 🤓


We really needed some of this scroll. After a bit of a struggle, we're compiling Tensorflow 2.1.0 on our NVIDIA Jetson Nano and may yet be able to Hello.

Configuration finished
userhost:~/git/tensorflow$ bazel build //tensorflow/tools/pip_package:build_pip_package
Extracting Bazel installation...
Starting local Bazel server and connecting to it...

yo theres even color

Come Back 65,536 Hours Later...

...and the Nano is still compiling Tensorflow 2.1. That's right, 2.1. We completely forgot that there's likely no support by DeepMoji for this version - we should have compiled 2.0.

That's fine. It doesn't matter. Nothing matters. (OK, PLENTY OF THINGS MATTER, calm down.) But yeah, we're sticking with the latest version of Tensorflow and we're just going to see how things play out.

Here's what's up, we've already downloaded half the internet during this compile.

And finally IT FAILS!

You Need a Rest Break

Cheer Up

Look, this isn't our first rodeo.

Let's just try compiling TF for the next 40 hours using this guide. This individual has even figured out TF 2.0!

We don't have to sit and watch every step of the process.

We don't have to even shut down KataGo. That would be weird.

If it works, it works. If it doesn't, FINE!


We failed to succeed in compilation of TF 2.0 on NVIDIA Jetson Nano. Thank you.
