MIVisionX toolkit is a set of comprehensive computer vision and machine intelligence libraries, utilities, and applications bundled into a single toolkit. AMD MIVisionX also delivers a highly optimized open-source implementation of the Khronos OpenVX™ and OpenVX™ Extensions.

MIVisionX Model Compiler Samples

In this sample, we will learn how to run inference efficiently using OpenVX and OpenVX Extensions. The sample will go over each step required to convert a pre-trained neural net model into an OpenVX Graph and run this graph efficiently on any target hardware. In this sample, we will also learn about AMD MIVisionX which delivers open source implementation of OpenVX and OpenVX Extensions along with MIVisionX Neural Net Model Compiler & Optimizer.

Neural Net Model Compiler & Optimizer converts pre-trained neural network models to MIVisionX runtime code for optimized inference.

Pre-trained models in ONNX, NNEF, & Caffe formats are supported by the model compiler & optimizer. The model compiler first converts the pre-trained models to AMD Neural Net Intermediate Representation (NNIR), once the model has been translated into AMD NNIR (AMD’s internal open format), the Optimizer goes through the NNIR and applies various optimizations which would allow the model to be deployed on to target hardware most efficiently. Finally, AMD NNIR is converted into OpenVX C code, which could be compiled and deployed on any targeted hardware.


Docker for Samples

MIVisionX provides developers with docker images for Ubuntu 18.04, Ubuntu 20.04, CentOS 7, & CentOS 8. Using docker images developers can quickly prototype and build applications without having to be locked into a single system setup or lose valuable time figuring out the dependencies of the underlying software.

Convert Pre-Trained Models into OpenVX

Use MIVisionX Neural Net Model Compiler & Optimizer to generate OpenVX code from your pre-trained neural net model. The model compiler generates annmodule.cpp & annmodule.h during the OpenVX code generation. The whole process of inference from a pre-trained neural net model will be shown in 3 different samples below.

  1. Download or train your own Caffe Model/ONNX Model/NNEF Model.

  1. Use MIVisionX Model Compiler to generate OpenVX C Code from the pre-trained models.

    Note: MIVisionX installs all the model compiler scripts in /opt/rocm/libexec/mivisionx/model_compiler/python/ folder
