Why interactive_face_detection_demo uses two plugins instead of just one?

Hi,

I'm using your interactive_face_detection_demo which can be found on the samples folder on the OpenVINO toolkit: https://docs.openvinotoolkit.org/2019_R2/_demos_interactive_face_detection_demo_README.html. I'm running the sample with a NCS2 and I'm on Windows 10. Inside the script I run your face detector model: https://download.01.org/opencv/2019/open_model_zoo/R1/20190404_140900_models_bin/face-detection-retail-0004/FP16/ and your age gender model: https://download.01.org/opencv/2019/open_model_zoo/R1/20190404_140900_models_bin/facial-landmarks-35-adas-0002/FP16/. Both are on FP16 in order to run on NCS2 Movidius.

That said, I have used this command line to use a sequence of face detection and age gender recognition on NCS2:

-i cam -o C:/OutputDir -m face-detection-retail-0004.xml -m_ag age-gender-recognition-retail-0013.xml -d MYRIAD -d_ag MYRIAD

Before running the script I added a few lines of code to it to understand the type of plugin I was using (my expectation were that I was only using the MYRIAD plugin). However after running the script I find that two plugins are being used: the CPU plugin and the MOVIDIUS plugin. Why are two plugins imported when I clearly defined that I only wanted to use the MYRIAD plugin?

 

Lines of code added to the main code of the interactive_face_detection_demo script:

 

/** Per-layer metrics **/
        if (FLAGS_pc) {
            for (auto && plugin : pluginsForDevices) {
                plugin.second.SetConfig({{PluginConfigParams::KEY_PERF_COUNT, PluginConfigParams::YES}});
            }
        }

        std::cout << "Plugins being used before (Reading IR models and loading them to plugins):" << std::endl;
        for (auto it = pluginsForDevices.begin(); it != pluginsForDevices.end(); ++it) {
            std::cout << it->first.c_str() << std::endl;
        }
        // ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

        // --------------------------- 2. Reading IR models and loading them to plugins ----------------------
        // Disable dynamic batching for face detector as it processes one image at a time
        Load(faceDetector).into(pluginsForDevices[FLAGS_d], false);
        Load(ageGenderDetector).into(pluginsForDevices[FLAGS_d_ag], false);
        Load(headPoseDetector).into(pluginsForDevices[FLAGS_d_hp], FLAGS_dyn_hp);
        Load(emotionsDetector).into(pluginsForDevices[FLAGS_d_em], FLAGS_dyn_em);
        Load(facialLandmarksDetector).into(pluginsForDevices[FLAGS_d_lm], FLAGS_dyn_lm);

        std::cout << "Plugins being used after (Reading IR models and loading them to plugins):" << std::endl;
        for (auto it = pluginsForDevices.begin(); it != pluginsForDevices.end(); ++it) {
            std::cout << it->first.c_str() << std::endl;
        }
        // ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

        // --------------------------- 3. Doing inference -----------------------------------------------------
        // Starting inference & calculating performance
        slog::info << "Start inference " << slog::endl;
        if (!FLAGS_no_show) {
            std::cout << "Press any key to stop" << std::endl;
        }

Could you please try the latest release, which is OpenVINO 2020.2 to see if there are any difference?

I can't, I only want to test for this version specifically.

Hi Cesar,

Apologies for the delay in our response. We have tested a sample using the Myriad plugin and if the device is not available (unplugged), the program terminates and will not inference on CPU plugin even if present.

Something you can try is to run your program with the Intel® NCS unplugged from the system and see if inference actually occurs. If it does inference with Myriad not present, there is probably some logic in your code that is allowing this to occur (like a fallback to CPU device in case Myriad device is unavailable). We cannot tell that is actually happening by just looking at the snippet of code shared. If it does not inference, then this verifies CPU is not actually being used for inference even though it is present.

Hope this helps, let me know if you have additional questions.

Best regards,

David
