Quantizing for GNA Device¶
This example demonstrates the use of the Post-training Optimization Tool API for the task of quantizing a speech model for GNA device. Quantization for GNA is different from CPU quantization due to device specifics: GNA supports quantized inputs in INT16 and INT32 (for activations) precision and quantized weights in INT8 and INT16 precision.
This example contains pre-selected quantization options based on the DefaultQuantization algorithm and created for models from Kaldi framework, and its data format.
ArkDataLoader is created to load the dataset from files with .ark extension for speech analysis task.
How to Prepare the Data¶
To run this example, you will need to use the .ark files for each model input from your
For generating data from original formats to .ark, please, follow the Kaldi data preparation tutorial.
How to Run the Example¶
Launch model conversion API with the necessary options (for details follow the instructions for Kaldi to generate Intermediate Representation (IR) files for the model:
mo --input_model <PATH_TO_KALDI_MODEL> [MODEL_CONVERSION_API_PARAMETERS]
Launch the example script:
python3 <POT_DIR>/api/examples/speech/gna_example.py -m <PATH_TO_IR_XML> -w <PATH_TO_IR_BIN> -d <DATA_FOLDER> --input_names [LIST_OF_MODEL_INPUTS] --files_for_input [LIST_OF_INPUT_FILES]
--input_namesoption. Defines the list of model inputs;
--files_for_inputoption. Defines the list of filenames (.ark) mapped with input names. You should define names without extension, for example: FILENAME_1, FILENAME_2 maps with INPUT_1, INPUT_2.
--presetoption. Defines preset for quantization:
performancefor INT8 weights,
accuracyfor INT16 weights;
--subset_sizeoption. Defines subset size for calibration;
--outputoption. Defines output folder for the quantized model.
Validate your INT8 model using
./speech_examplefrom the Inference Engine examples. Follow the speech example description link for details.
