Hello Infer Request Classification C++ Sample

This topic describes how to run the Hello Infer Classification sample application. The sample is simplified version of Image Classification Sample. It demonstrates how to use the new Infer Request API of Inference Engine in applications. Refer to Integrate the Inference Engine New Request API with Your Application for details.

NOTE: By default, Inference Engine samples and demos expect input with BGR channels order. If you trained your model to work with RGB order, you need to manually rearrange the default channels order in the sample or demo application or reconvert your model using the Model Optimizer tool with --reverse_input_channels argument specified. For more information about the argument, refer to When to Specify Input Shapes section of Converting a Model Using General Conversion Parameters.


To run the sample, you can use public or pre-trained models. To download the pre-trained models, use the OpenVINO Model Downloader or go to https://download.01.org/opencv/.

NOTE: Before running the sample with a trained model, make sure the model is converted to the Inference Engine format (*.xml + *.bin) using the Model Optimizer tool.

You can do inference on an image using a trained AlexNet network on CPU using the following command:

./hello_autoresize_classification <path_to_model>/alexnet_fp32.xml <path_to_image>/cat.bmp CPU

Sample Output

The application outputs top-10 inference results.
