This AMI delivers what is promised.
For those, who just want to have a remote computer to work on, this is perfect.
After launching it, you can use your Windows Remote Dektop Connection to work on the graphical Windows interface just like you do on your local machine.
I used the Deep Learning AMI to run the R interface to Keras using a TensorFlow backend. Anaconda was already installed, so it took me maybe 10 minutes to set up everything.
So here is what I did: install R, install RStudio, install Keras and I was ready to go.
There was no hassle with requirements, compiling, dependencies.... Everything worked exactly as it did on my local Windows machine. Perfect.

Love it!

I do not usually write reviews, but I feel compelled to write it for this AMI.

If you are not too familiar with Linux and/or are used to Windows, and if you do not want to spend hours installing the correct drivers / configuring your GPU, this IS the solution.

It is ready for use, with Anaconda already installed, at no additional charge (i.e. you spend for EC2 computing, but that's it).
