Can I use NCS2 – Neural Compute Stick 2 (Myriad™ X) for acceleration cv::StereoBM and cv::StereoSGBM OpenCV functions in the last OpenCV 4.x versions?

Should I use custom OpenCV(OpenVINO) version?

Note that OpenVINO ships with it’s own OpenCV version.

As known, OpenCV supports OpenVINO that uses Neural Compute Stick 2 (Myriad™ X):

dnn module was updated with Deep Learning Deployment Toolkit from the OpenVINO™ toolkit R4

But can NCS2 be used for cv::StereoBM / cv::StereoSGBM instead of Deep Neural Networks?

No, only DNN can benefit from VPU for now.

Probably you should get the same results if you build yourself OpenCV with Intel Inference Engine, or even OpenVINO.
