Intel® Compute Library for Deep Neural Networks (clDNN)
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)
