There's a "CAFFE_FLAVOR" choice in ncsdk.conf

 

I want to know …

 

     

  1. What is the difference between _CAFFE_FLAVOR == "intel"_ _(https://github.com/intel/caffe.git)_ and _CAFFE_FLAVOR == "ssd" _ _(https://github.com/weiliu89/caffe.git)_
  2.  

  3. To install BVLC version Caffe (https://github.com/BVLC/caffe), how should I set "CAFFE_FLAVOR" in ncsdk.conf ?
  4.  

  5. Otherwise, does "CAFFE_USE_CUDA=yes" (in ncsdk.conf) mean install Caffe of GPU mode ?
  6.

@miily Sorry I missed this one. Intel Caffe is flavor of Caffe that is more optimized for Intel CPUS like Xeons or Xeon Phis. The difference between BVLC Caffe and SSD Caffe is that BVLC will not work for the SSD network.

 

You can install the BVLC flavor of Caffe by changing the CAFFE_FLAVOR to use BVLC CAFFE_FLAVOR = bvlc in the ncsdk.conf file and running the installation process again using make install.

 

There is a softlink in the /opt/movidius/ and you can change the caffe link to point to which Caffe version you want to use.
