model.parseResult Method

Parses the results of some commonly used models, such as classification, SSD, and segmentation models. For customized models, you need to write your own parse functions.

Request Syntax

import awscam model = awscam.Model(model_topology_file, loading_config) raw_infer_result = model.doInference(video_frame) result = model.parseResult(model_type, raw_infer_result)


  • model_type—String that identifies the model type to use to generate the inference. Required.

    Valid values: classification, ssd, and segmentation


    When deploying an Amazon SageMaker-trained SSD model, you must first run (available from to convert the model artifact into a deployable mode.

  • raw_infer_result—The output of the function model.doInference(video_frame). Required.

Return Type

  • dict


Returns a dict with a single key-value pair. The key is the model type. The value is a list of dicts, in which each element is an object label and probability calculated by the model.

The output of a classification model might look like the following:

{ "output":[ {"label":"318", "prob":0.5}, {"label":"277", "prob":0.3}, ..., {"label":"433", "prob":0.001} ] }

The output of an SDD model contains bounding box information, similar to the following:

{ "output": [ {"label": "318", "xmin": 124, "xmax": 245, "ymin": 10, "ymax": 142, "prob": 0.5}, {"label": "277", "xmin": 89, "xmax": 166, "ymin": 233, "ymax": 376, "prob": 0.3}, ..., {"label": "433", "xmin": 355, "xmax": 468, "ymin": 210, "ymax": 266, "prob": 0.001} ] }
