According to the document, there is a preview version of the Inference Engine Python* API for evaluation purpose only. But I cannot find the directory in my download, could you help tell me how to access the Python stuff? Thanks!

Hi Guobin,

I'm not sure which version of OpenVINO you have.

I have 2018.1.265.

It is providing python_api in /deployment_tools/inference_engine/python_api.

And also there are python samples in /deployment_tools/inference_engine/samples/python_samples.

Regards,

Peter.

Hi Raphael,

If you are looking for python api documentation it is here.If you are wondering how to use the python samples you can use the -h command line argument to see the helper menu that will show you what command arguments are required to run the sample.

Kind Regards,

Monique Jones

Hi everyone,

Starting from OpenVINO R3 python bindings for Inference Engine are moved too <INSTALL_DIR>/python/<target_python_version> since this folder now contains not only bindings for Inference Engine but also for OpenCV included to OpenVINO package.

Samples location is the same ./deployment_tools/inference_engine/samples/python_samples.

BTW, to not worry about packages location and to simplify environment setting process I recommend to use setupvars script as described in 'Setting Up the Environment' section of the docs which Monique mentioned above.
