Train using NCS2

I know that NCS2 is mainly an inference device, can we use it to train a model ? does OpenVino provide such a feature ?

Hi Gama,


OpenVINO™ Training Extensions provides a "model template" for every supported task type to train model using CPU, GPU or multiple GPUs, but not NCS2.

Hi Gama,


Thanks for reaching out to us.


Intel® Neural Compute Stick 2 (NCS2) is only able to load Intermediate Representation (IR) format model for inferencing. It is unable to be used for training models.
