macOS support?

Hello,

Since Apple Mac series are equipped with brand new Intel Core CPUs, do you have any plan to release OpenVINO for macOS?

Thanks!

That would be great! Most new Mac models lack NVIDIA graphic cards. Moreover, most deep learning libraries lack support for OpenCL. In my opinion there is definitely a gap you can fill with macOS users.

Hi Ives and Marquis,

We are focusing on the current platform to make a solid product now, currently we are looking at the requirement on the Mac side.

What kind of release do you want, binary release like we do it now or open source project?

Hi Mark,

Binary release is sufficient. We currently develop cross-platform software on Windows and macOS, so we hope that our software can leverage OpenVINO's powerful inference engine on both platform.

Thank you

Hi Mark,

I would also love to see an OpenVINO macOS version. Modern Macs have Intel CPUs with integrated graphics, and therefore, I think it makes sense to have an OpenVINO version for macOS.

In addition, I would live to use the Movidius Neural Compute Stick with macOS. ;)

We are also developing cross-platform software on Windows and macOS and would love to have OpenVino macOS support.

Hello, Mark,

Today I tried to install OpenVINO in MacOS High Sierra.

I found some lines for MacOS platforms, but without actual files in install.sh as below.

Is there any plan for release MacOS binary or compilable sources?

 pset_engine_folder="$fullpath/pset/$my_arch"
    if [ "$(uname)" = "Darwin" ]; then
        pset_config_folder="`cd "$fullpath/../Resources/pset";pwd;cd - > /dev/null 2>/dev/null`"
        pset_engine_folder="$fullpath/../MacOS"

I checked the installer bash script, and there are some Darwin check lines. (but lack of actual folders it referenced.)

Is there any clear plan to support macOS?

 

Bests,

J.
