Use Case and High-Level Description

This is the Inception v3 model that is designed to perform image classification. The model has been pretrained on the ImageNet image database and then pruned to 59.9% of sparsity and quantized to INT8 fixed-point precision using so-called Quantization-aware training approach implemented in TensorFlow framework. The sparsity is represented by zeros inside the weights of Convolutional and Fully-conneted layers. For details about the original floating point model, check out the paper.

The model input is a blob that consists of a single image of "1x299x299x3" in BGR order.

The model output for inceptionv3-int8-sparse-v2-tf-0001 is the usual object classifier output for the 1001 different classifications matching those in the ImageNet database (the first item represents the background).
