Using tensorflow in python

+2 votes

I followed the Jevois tutorial to train imagenet on new classifiers, and generated the tflite file, but I was wondering now if it is possible to use this model  in a python module. The tutorial explains how to deploy the tflite model to the tensorfloweasy module, but I would prefer to do this from within a python module. I tried to import tensorflow in a python module, but tensorflow was not found. I also tried to install a few different wheels for tensorflow on the camera, but this just caused the camera to crash. Overall, I am just wondering if it is possible to use the tensorflow library in a python module, rather than a C++ module like tensorfloweasy

This is not supported, though you should be able to run your model using Python OpenCV, see for example



Unfortunately cross-compiling TF is becoming increasingly difficult because of their bazel build system, but we will look into whether we could compile the python bindings into our TF module.

Thanks for the information. Shortly after posting this question I did find how to read the model using opencv. I appreciate you taking the time to look into the python bindings.
obriena - were you somehow able to use OpenCV DNN to load a TFLite model?   I thought that OpenCV DNN does not support TFLite.  Or did you convert your model to another framework?  Thank you.
