python3 not working



I have been trying for days now to resolve the problem before and I would really appreciate some guidance in resolving the issue:

1. The result below is a success result when running the object_detection_demo_ssd_async demo:

msupra@AI3:~/inference_engine_samples_build/intel64/Release$ ./object_detection_demo_ssd_async -i cam -m /opt/intel/computer_vision_sdk/inference_engine/samples/python_samples/frozen_inference_graph.xml -d CPU
    API version ............ 1.4

2. When running the example python scripts with the same inference, I get the following two errors when choosing device CPU and device MYRIAD:

msupra@AI3:/opt/intel/computer_vision_sdk/inference_engine/samples/python_samples$ python3 -i cam -m frozen_inference_graph.xml -d CPU
[ INFO ] Initializing plugin for CPU device...

  File "ie_api.pyx", line 400, in openvino.inference_engine.ie_api.IEPlugin.load
RuntimeError: [VPU] Unsupported network precision : FP32


If I can get some guidance in how to resolve these issues, then I will finally be getting somewhere with the python API.

It looks like you are on Linux but the path to the CPU extensions DLL on windows is here:


Look for and pass it in with  the -l switch. You must build your inference_engine\samples first however to get[dll]
