To date, the Smart Social Distancing application only supported CPU acceleration for X86 nodes. We focused on adding support for GPU to provide faster inference to the users. As a result, the inference time has been boosted by 2x on X86 nodes with GPU acceleration. Currently, you can run the Smart Social Distancing application on your X86 node connected to a GPU accelerator at an inference speed of x milliseconds and a throughput of x frames per second.
You can find the instructions to use GPU acceleration here on our GitHub repo.
