I have installed python 3.6 as well as spyder, numpy, pandas, scipy, and matplotlib from the Anaconda3(64 bit) distribution. I followed the MATLAB directions and call call simple python scrips in MATLAB. What I have not been able to do is to use any of the packages numpy, pandas, scipy, and matplotlib. The MATLAB command py.importlib.import_module('numpy') does not work.
Thanks in advance for your help.
