Is there any C# wrapper for OpenVino ?

I was wondering is there any C# wrapper for OpenVino. I am working on a project that I need to find the head pose estimation and I am using one of the openvino examples for that. Is there any way to convert that functionality to make run in C#. I want to work with C# because I am building an app in Unity3D.

 

Thanks for the answers in advance!

Best Regards,

Emre

Dear Ozkan, Emre,

OpenVino prides itself on being Open Source software and C# is not open source - so the answer to your question is no, at this time we don't offer C# API wrappers. We do have Python wrappers, however :

Thanks,

Shuba,

  You are very incorrect.  The IL definition and C# compilers have been open source since at least 2014.  That is not a legitimate excuse for not providing bindings.

Hi,

How about .NET Core? It is kind of open-source, do you have plans to create .NET Standard wrapper?

Thanks,
