Compiling MLP network throws error

Hi!

 

I am trying to compile a simple MLP network trained in tensorflow and I seem to be stuck with an error which goes like this -

I am not sure why is it looking for convolutions. Is this device only for running image based networks (CNNs) ?

 

Really looking forward to your response!

 

Warm regards,

Hi @shehjar

 

The NCS _is_ only able to run CNNs. In theory, however, we should be able to support MLPs as long as you're using an image input. I have not tried to compile an MLP myself, so I cannot confirm this. But we do support networks with MLP in them because they're used in the final classification phase of CNN networks like GoogLeNet and MobileNetSSD - a typical CNN works as follows:

 

Input -> convolutional layers (conv, relu, pooling) -> full connected layers (or MLP used to “classify” the input) -> output

 

I hope this was helpful.

 

Best Regards,

Hi @Sahira_at_Intel

 

Thanks for the response. I was able to run it eventually using the --old-parser add on in the command line. I am not sure how it makes a difference. The other workaround is to keep the dummy input as a 4 dimensions and then squeeze it down to the necessary dimensions and compile that as input layer.

 

My team was currently planning to use this hardware for numeric and time series data too. So it seems counter-intuitive if it is only able to run CNNs.

 

Also, just out of curiosity, are conv1D layers also supported? i could try build a workaround for time series analysis using conv1D
