If you’d like to use the accelerator-specific features of 🤗 Optimum, you can install the required dependencies according to the table below:

Accelerator Installation

Intel Neural Compressor (INC) python -m pip install optimum[neural-compressor]
Intel OpenVINO python -m pip install optimum[openvino,nncf]

If you’d like to play with the examples or need the bleeding edge of the code and can’t wait for a new release, you can install the base library from source as follows:

For the accelerator-specific features, you can install them by appending #egg=optimum[accelerator_type] to the pip command, e.g.

python -m pip install git+https://github.com/huggingface/optimum.git#egg=optimum[onnxruntime]
