      Background/About OpenVINO™ toolkit: The Open Visual Inference & Neural network Optimization (OpenVINO™) toolkit is a free software toolkit that helps fast-track development of high-performance computer vision and deep learning inference into vision applications. Its part of Intel’s end-to-end vision solutions portfolio, and is optimized for multiple Intel® architectures (CPUs, CPUs with integrated graphics, Intel® FPGA, and Intel® Movidius™ VPUs). (This tool was also formerly known as Intel® Computer Vision SDK.)
