Use Arhat Framework & Intel oneAPI for Object Detection

Arhat is a cross-platform, deep-learning framework that converts neural network descriptions into lean, stand-alone executable code. This approach provides significant benefits because of a simple and straightforward deployment process.

Arhat is integrated with Intel® oneAPI Deep Neural Network Library (oneDNN). The Arhat back end for Intel® platforms generates C++ code that directly calls oneDNN. Furthermore, Arhat provides a module that consumes models produced by the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit model optimizer.

This presentation shows recent case studies dedicated to using Arhat for building object-detection applications on Intel® CPU and GPU hardware. These studies cover models from the Open Model Zoo as well as models from the Detectron2 library.
