NOTE: The main branch of this repository was updated to support the new OpenVINO 2024.1 release. To upgrade to the new release version, please run pip install --upgrade -r requirements.txt in your openvino_env virtual environment. If you need to install for the first time, see the Installation Guide section below. If you wish to use the previous release version of OpenVINO, please checkout the 2024.0 branch. If you wish to use the previous Long Term Support (LTS) version of OpenVINO check out the 2023.3 branch.

If you need help, please start a GitHub Discussion.

If you run into issues, please check the troubleshooting section, FAQs or start a GitHub discussion.

Notebooks with binder logo and colab logo buttons can be run without installing anything. Binder and Google Colab are free online services with limited resources. For the best performance, please follow the Installation Guide and run the notebooks locally.

💻 Run the Notebooks

To Launch a Single Notebook

If you wish to launch only one notebook, like the Monodepth notebook, run the command below (from the repository root directory):

jupyter lab notebooks/vision-monodepth/vision-monodepth.ipynb

To Launch all Notebooks

Launch Jupyter Lab with index file opened for easier navigation between notebooks directories and files. Run the following command from the repository root directory:

jupyter lab notebooks/

Alternatively, in your browser select a notebook from the file browser in Jupyter Lab using the left sidebar. Each tutorial is located in a subdirectory within the notebooks directory.


🧹 Cleaning Up

  1. Shut Down Jupyter Kernel

    To end your Jupyter session, press Ctrl-c. This will prompt you to Shutdown this Jupyter server (y/[n])? enter y and hit Enter.

  1. Deactivate Virtual Environment

    To deactivate your virtualenv, simply run deactivate from the terminal window where you activated openvino_env. This will deactivate your environment.

    To reactivate your environment, run source openvino_env/bin/activate on Linux or openvino_env\Scripts\activate on Windows, then type jupyter lab or jupyter notebook to launch the notebooks again.

  1. Delete Virtual Environment (Optional)

    To remove your virtual environment, simply delete the openvino_env directory:

  • On Linux and macOS:

    rm -rf openvino_env
  • On Windows:

    rmdir /s openvino_env
  • Remove openvino_env Kernel from Jupyter

    jupyter kernelspec remove openvino_env


⚠️ Troubleshooting

If these tips do not solve your problem, please open a discussion topic or create an issue!

  • To check some common installation problems, run python This script is located in the openvino_notebooks directory. Please run it after activating the openvino_env virtual environment.
  • If you get an ImportError, double-check that you installed the Jupyter kernel. If necessary, choose the openvino_env kernel from the Kernel->Change Kernel menu in Jupyter Lab or Jupyter Notebook.
  • If OpenVINO is installed globally, do not run installation commands in a terminal where setupvars.bat or are sourced.
  • For Windows installation, it is recommended to use Command Prompt (cmd.exe), not PowerShell.
