Why use OpenVINO with my TS App?

I have a working TS app for object identification but I fail to see the benefit of using OpenVINO. I purchased the VPU stick but now I am confused and I need some clarification.

1. If I have an App running on my PC, will it work on any EDGE device or that is the job of OpenVINO?

    for example mini PCs

 

2. Is there a step by step guide on how to convert my TS app to OpenVINO?

 

Thanks for your help.

Hi Gilson,


OpenVINO toolkit is used to develop and deploy vision-oriented solutions across various Intel platforms, on the cloud or the edge, and is focused on deep learning inference. Please view the video below for introduction to OpenVINO.

What is OpenVINO? | OpenVINO™ toolkit | Ep. 01 | Intel Software


Neural Compute Stick 2 meanwhile is an affordable USB-based development kit that enables testing, tuning and prototyping of deep neural networks directly on devices, without the need of a network or cloud connection. Please view the video below for introduction to Neural Compute Stick 2.

For your first question, you need to ensure that your TensorFlow model layers are supported by OpenVINO Model Optimizer and Inference Engine. More information is available at the following pages:


Model Optimizer TensorFlow Supported Operations:

https://docs.openvinotoolkit.org/2021.1/openvino_docs_MO_DG_prepare_model_Supported_Frameworks_Layer...


Inference Engine Supported Layers for various devices: https://docs.openvinotoolkit.org/2021.1/openvino_docs_IE_DG_supported_plugins_Supported_Devices.html...


The typical workflow for deploying a trained deep learning model is given here:

For your second question, we only have step-by-step guide for TensorFlow model conversion. More information is available at the following link:

Hi Gilmotta,


Thanks for reaching out to us. Can you please help to clarify what does 'TS App' stand for? Do you mean TensorFlow ?

Sorry, I wrote TS but I meant TF. Yes, Tensorflow.
