hello everyone!

 

I have a small question as to why model inference in python would use the
"net = ie.read_network(model,weights)" api to import model and parameters (.xml & .bin)


but In the c++ call samples:

"ie.compile_model"  only the .xml file is imported, isn't the weights file (.bin) needed?

 

Expecting someone to tell me why

thanks in advance!

Hi Arthur123,

Thank you for reaching out to us.

 

For your information, when loading a model in OpenVINO C++ API without specifying the bin_path, the core.read_model() will try to read a bin file with the same name as xml and if no bin file is found, it will load IR without weights.

 

You can refer the class ov::Core for more information on OpenVINO Runtime C++ API.

 

Hope this helps.

 

 

Regards,

Hairul
