LearningModelDeviceKind Enum

Definition

Defines the list of device kinds that can evaluate a machine learning model.

public enum class LearningModelDeviceKind
/// [Windows.Foundation.Metadata.ContractVersion(Windows.AI.MachineLearning.MachineLearningContract, 65536)]
enum LearningModelDeviceKind
[Windows.Foundation.Metadata.ContractVersion(typeof(Windows.AI.MachineLearning.MachineLearningContract), 65536)]
public enum LearningModelDeviceKind
var value = Windows.AI.MachineLearning.LearningModelDeviceKind.default

Attributes

Windows 10 requirements

Device family
Windows 10, version 1809 (introduced in 10.0.17763.0)
API contract
Windows.AI.MachineLearning.MachineLearningContract (introduced in v1.0)

Fields

Cpu 1

Use the CPU to evaluate the model.

Default 0

Let the system decide which device to use.

DirectX 2

Use a GPU or other DirectX device to evaluate the model.

DirectXHighPerformance 3

Use the system policy-defined device for high performance.

DirectXMinPower 4

Use the system policy-defined device for minimum power.

Examples

The following example loads a model, selects the device on which to evaluate the model, and creates an evaluation session.

private async Task LoadModelAsync(string _modelFileName, bool _useGPU)
{
    LearningModel _model;
    LearningModelSession _session;

    try
    {
        // Load and create the model
        var modelFile = 
            await StorageFile.GetFileFromApplicationUriAsync(new Uri($"ms-appx:///Assets/{_modelFileName}"));
        _model = await LearningModel.LoadFromStorageFileAsync(modelFile);

        // Select the device to evaluate on
        LearningModelDevice device = null;
        if (_useGPU)
        {
            // Use a GPU or other DirectX device to evaluate the model.
            device = new LearningModelDevice(LearningModelDeviceKind.DirectX);
        }
        else
        {
            // Use the CPU to evaluate the model.
            device = new LearningModelDevice(LearningModelDeviceKind.Cpu);
        }

        // Create the evaluation session with the model and device.
        _session = new LearningModelSession(_model, device);

    }
    catch (Exception ex)
    {
        StatusBlock.Text = $"error: {ex.Message}";
        _model = null;
    }
}

Remarks

If not specified, the system will decide which device to use.

Windows Server

To use this API on Windows Server, you must use Windows Server 2019 with Desktop Experience.
