How to install PyTorch on Anaconda

This is a quick post on how to install PyTorch on Anaconda and get started with deep learning projects. As a machine learning enthusiasts, this is the first step in getting started with PyTorch. I followed this steps on Mac Air and got started with PyTorch in no time. Here are the steps:

  • Go to Anaconda tool. Click on “Environments” in the left navigation.
  • Click on arrow marks on “base (root)” as shown in the diagram below. It will open up a small modal window as down. Click open terminal. This will open up a terminal window.
