FP32 for MYRIAD?

Hi, 

In https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/OpenVINO-InferEngine, under Advanced Topics > Supported Devices > Supported Configurations, it indicates only FP16 is supported for MYRIAD VPU.  Is this a limitation of MYRIAD X / NCS2?  If MYRIAD X / NCS2 can support FP32 networks, will OpenVINO support FP32 for MYRIAD VPU in the future?

Thanks.

Dear Chris,

at this juncture Myriad doesn't support FP32 and there are no plans to add such support. Mostly the reasoning has to do with accuracy and performance  - FP32 would not perform optimally on Myriad,so that's why FP32 is not offered on MYRIAD.

Hope it helps and thanks for using OpenVino !
