How to resolve TensorFlow 2.0 Error – Could not load dynamic library ‘cudart64_100.dll’

Recently I came across an issue while building ANN with TensorFlow 2.0, where IntelliJ complained about not being able to load the dynamic library ‘cudart64_100.dll’. The below instructions outline the approach for fixing the issue and would apply also to errors that refer to other NVIDIA GPU Computing Toolkit dynamic libraries, such as cufft64_100.dll, cufftw64_100.dll, cuinj64_100.dll, nppig64_100.dll, nppim64_100.dll, nppist64_100.dll, nppisu64_100.dll, nppitc64_100.dll, npps64_100.dll, nppif64_100.dll, nppia164_100.dll or nppicc64_100.dll, all of which are part of the older version of CUDA platform for general computing on graphical processing units (GPUs) developed by NVIDIA .

Python: How to Create/Edit Windows Registries with Python 3.7

Just a short demo of how to go about creating/editing of Windows registry keys by using Python. This should be trivial, but as a matter of fact, not that many examples I could find online were working with Python 3.7. Below code should be pretty self-explanatory. Anyways, to put in in good use, let’s disable Cortana Assistant in Windows 10. If you have any questions about the process, just text me below.

Visualizing JPEG Exif using Python: How to convert JPEG Meta-Data into Excel Travel Log and Google Map of All Visited Places

Over the past 20+ years, my family took tens of thousands of photos while visiting countries all around the world. As the years went by, the total number of stored images seems to grow every time we travel and even though we organize our images, sometimes it’s hard to recall when (exactly which year and month) we visited a specific place. Thinking about it, I realized that nowadays most photos are captured on smartphones or digital cameras that come equipped with GPS and automatically geotag each photo with GPS coordinates, as well as date and time of each image capture. That said, it shouldn’t be hard to convert the Exif information stored inside photo meta-data into easily readable Excel Travel Log, or too complicated to create a Google Map of all places I ever visited.
