Quick Check of Google Colaboratory

Colaboratory is a Chrome App developed by a joint team consisting of Google Research, Matthew Turk, and the IPython/Jupyter. It works like a Jupyter notebook. Colaboratory merges many open source packages with Google technologies which facilitates collaboration and reduces the burden of setting up the working environment.

To check what packages Colaboratory has, I have done a simple test by importing packages. Here is what I found.

Data Processing Packages. Four commonly used data processing/analysis packages like numpy and pandas come in handy

  • Pandas
  • Numpy
  • Scipy
  • Statsmodels

Visualization Packages. I have tested four packages and three of them are available. The one tested but not found is Bokeh.

  • matplotlib
  • seaborn
  • plotly

Machine Learning Packages. I have tested five common python machine learning packages and two of them are available. Theano, Caffe and XGBoost are not available.

  • sklearn
  • tensorflow

Image Processing Packages. Two packages Pillow and Skimage are available. OpenCV, one of my favorite packages is not available.

  • Pillow
  • Skimage

Natural Language Processing Packages. Only NLTK was tested and it is available.

  • NLTK

Packages do not exist

  • OpenCV
  • Bokeh
  • XGBoost
  • Theano
  • Caffe

Please check the notebook for detailed information.
