I am currently trying to work through the sound examples in chapter 5 that are using Bregman Toolkit and I experienced a variety of different problems. First, this library does not support Python 3 so I tried this out with Python 2 yet I still seemingly had to patch the toolkit code.

Still I could not get the example to run with Tensorflow 1.0. Does there happen to be anyone to get listings 5.2-5.4 working with Tensorflow 1.0 ?


Just wanted to add that in the SOM example tf.pack() needs to be replaced with tf.stack()

Thanks !

The latest MEAP should have instructions on setting up the Bregman Toolkit with Python 2. The "stack"/"pack" issue is also resolved in the latest update.

Solution tested with macOS High Sierra, Version 10.13.6

Step 1: With Python 2.7.15 installed:

From the unzipped folder 'bregman_r12-09.15' copy the subfolder 'bregman'

into the folder 'site-packages', located at:


Step 2:

Make sure you have installed the right versions of numpy and tensorflow:

From Terminal give these commands:

pip2 install numpy==1.11.3

pip2 install tensorflow==1.0

Also needed is:

pip2 install matplotlib scipy Pillow

Step 3: From the TensorFlow-Book-master:

Concept01_clustering.ipynb should run without any modification.
