Image to Vec
from __future__ import absolute_import, division, print_function
This is a modification of the
script in Tensorflow. The original script produces
string labels for input images (e.g. you input a picture
of a cat and the script returns the string "cat"); this
modification reads in a directory of images and
generates a vector representation of the image using
the penultimate layer of neural network weights.
Usage: python "../image_dir/*.jpg"

"""Simple image classification with Inception.
Run image classification with Inception trained on ImageNet 2012 Challenge data
This program creates a graph from a saved GraphDef protocol buffer,
and runs inference on an input JPEG image. It outputs human readable
strings of the top 5 predictions along with their probabilities.
Change the --image_file argument to any jpg image to compute a
classification of that image.
Please see the tutorial and website for a detailed description of how
to use this script to perform image recognition.
