This document has instructions to run a WaveNet FP32 inference using Intel® Optimizations for TensorFlow*.

Quick Start Scripts

Script name Description
fp32_inference Runs inference with a pretrained model

Bare Metal

To run on bare metal, the following prerequisites must be installed in your environment:

  • Python* 3
  • intel-tensorflow
  • librosa==0.5
  • numactl
  • Clone the tensorflow-wavenet repo and get pull request #352 for the CPU optimizations. The path to the cloned repo will be passed as the model source directory when running the launch script.
git clone https://github.com/ibab/tensorflow-wavenet.git
cd tensorflow-wavenet/

git fetch origin pull/352/head:cpu_optimized
git checkout cpu_optimized

After installing the prerequisites, download and untar the model package. Set environment variables for the path to your TF_WAVENET_DIR and an OUTPUT_DIR where log files will be written, then run a quickstart script.

TF_WAVENET_DIR=<tensorflow-wavenet directory>
OUTPUT_DIR=<directory where log files will be written>

wget https://storage.googleapis.com/intel-optimized-tensorflow/models/v2_3_0/wavenet-fp32-inference.tar.gz
tar -xzf wavenet-fp32-inference.tar.gz
cd wavenet-fp32-inference
