Optimized Inference at the Edge with Intel® Tools and Technologies

This workshop will walk you through a computer vision workflow using the latest Intel® technologies and comprehensive toolkits including support for deep learning algorithms that help accelerate smart video applications. You will learn how to optimize and improve performance with and without external accelerators and utilize tools to help you identify the best hardware configuration for your needs. This workshop will also outline the various frameworks and topologies supported by Intel® accelerator tools.

How to Get Started

⚠️ For the in-class training, the hardware and software setup part has already been done on the workshop hardware. In-class training participants should directly move to Workshop Agenda section.

In order to use this workshop content, you will need to setup your hardware and install OpenVINO™ toolkit for infering your computer vision application.

1. Hardware requirements

The hardware requirements are mentioned in the System Requirement section of the install guide

2. Operating System

These labs have been validated on Ubuntu 16.04 OS.

3. Software installation steps

a). Install OpenVINO™ toolkit

Use steps described in the install guide to install OpenVINO™ toolkit, build sample demos, build inference engine samples, install MediaSDK and OpenCL* mentioned in the the guide.

b). Install git, gflags and python libraries

sudo apt install git
sudo apt install libgflags-dev
sudo apt install python3-pip
pip3 install -r /opt/intel/computer_vision_sdk/deployment_tools/model_optimizer/requirements_caffe.txt

c). Compile samples

Compile in-built samples in OpenVINO™ toolkit

sudo su
source /opt/intel/computer_vision_sdk/bin/
cd /opt/intel/computer_vision_sdk/deployment_tools/inference_engine/samples/
mkdir build && cd build
cmake –DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release ..

d). Download models using model downloader scripts in OpenVINO™ toolkit installed folder

  • Install python3 (version 3.5.2 or newer)
  • Install yaml and requests modules with command:
sudo -E pip3 install pyyaml requests
  • Run model downloader script to download example deep learning models
cd /opt/intel/computer_vision_sdk/deployment_tools/model_downloader
sudo python3

e). Install Intel® System Studio, VNC viewer and Setup on development machine

Follow the guide to install Intel® System Studio and VNC viewer on your development machine.

⚠️ This workshop content has been validated with OpenVINO™ toolkit version R3 (computer_vision_sdk_2018.3.343).
