Compute Library for Deep Neural Networks (clDNN) is an open source performance library for Deep Learning (DL) applications intended for acceleration of DL Inference on Intel® Processor Graphics – including HD Graphics and Iris® Graphics. clDNN includes highly optimized building blocks for implementation of convolutional neural networks (CNN) with C and C++ interfaces. We created this project to enable the DL community to innovate on Intel® processors.

  • Usages supported: Image recognition, image detection, and image segmentation.
  • Validated Topologies: AlexNet*, VGG(16,19)*, GoogleNet(v1,v2,v3)*, ResNet(50,101,152)* Faster R-CNN*, Squeezenet*, SSD_googlenet*, SSD_VGG*, PVANET*, PVANET_REID*, age_gender*, FCN* and yolo*.

clDNN is released also together with Intel® OpenVino™ Toolkit, which contains:

  • Model Optimizer a Python*-based command line tool, which imports trained models from popular deep learning frameworks such as Caffe*, TensorFlow*, and Apache MXNet*.
  • Inference Engine an execution engine which uses a common API to deliver inference solutions on the platform of your choice (for example GPU with clDNN library)
