Does NCS support traditional computer vision algorithm, not neural network?

I want to use NCS2(Movidiu Neural Compute Stick 2) to implement traditional computer vision algorithm, such as matrix multiplication. That is, I don't train the weights by dataset.  For example, both matrix A and B are 100*100 dimensions, I want to use NCS2 to calculate C=A*B 
Is there API to support this kind of matrix multiplication? 

Can I contact your support by email?

Dear Sam:

Doing general purpose operations on NCS2 isn’t exposed.  The only option for you would be to create a neural network that does whatever operation/s you want and do an inference to get the result.  But this wouldn’t be recommended as the overhead of running the inference would probably outweigh any benefit of running the operation on the NCS. It's  best to stick with OpenVino tools for running inference on NCS2.

Thanks/Hope it helps,

Shubha
