Installing AI and Data Science Applications and Frameworks

The AI and data science applications and frameworks are distributed as NGC container images through the NVIDIA NGC Enterprise Catalog. Each container image contains the entire user-space software stack that is required to run the application or framework; namely, the CUDA libraries, cuDNN, any required Magnum IO components, TensorRT, and the framework.

Execute the following workflow steps within the VM in order to pull AI and data science containers.

  1. Generate your API key.

  2. Access the NVIDIA NGC Enterprise Catalog.

  3. For each AI or data science application that you are interested in, load the container.

Detailed below are the Docker pull commands for downloading the container for each application or framework.


NVIDIA TensorRT is a C++ library that facilitates high-performance inference on NVIDIA graphics processing units (GPUs). TensorRT takes a trained network and produces a highly optimized runtime engine that performs inference for that network.
