Using MindSpore Lite JavaScript APIs to Develop AI Applications


You can use the JavaScript APIs provided by MindSpore Lite to directly integrate MindSpore Lite capabilities into the UI code. This way, you can quickly deploy AI algorithms for AI model inference.

Basic Concepts

Before getting started, you need to understand the following basic concepts:

Tensor: a special data structure that is similar to arrays and matrices. It is basic data structure used in MindSpore Lite network operations.

Float16 inference mode: a mode that uses half-precision inference. Float16 uses 16 bits to represent a number and therefore it is also called half-precision.

Available APIs

APIs involved in MindSpore Lite model inference are categorized into context APIs, model APIs, and tensor APIs. For more APIs, see @ohos.ai.mindSporeLite.

API Description
loadModelFromFile(model: string, options: Context): Promise<Model> Loads a model from a file.
getInputs(): MSTensor[] Obtains the model input.
predict(inputs: MSTensor[]): Promise<MSTensor> Performs model inference.
getData(): ArrayBuffer Obtains tensor data.
setData(inputArray: ArrayBuffer): void Sets the tensor data.

How to Develop

Assume that you have prepared a model in the .ms format. The key steps in model inference are model reading, model building, model inference, and memory release. The development procedure is described as follows:

  1. Create a context, and set parameters such as the number of runtime threads and device type.
  2. Load the model. In this example, the model is read from the file.
  3. Load data. Before executing a model, you need to obtain the model input and then fill data in the input tensor.
  4. Perform model inference by calling predict, and read the output.
// Construct a singleton object.
export class GlobalContext {
  private constructor() {}
  private static instance: GlobalContext;
  private _objects = new Map<string, Object>();

  public static getContext(): GlobalContext {
    if (!GlobalContext.instance) {
      GlobalContext.instance = new GlobalContext();
    return GlobalContext.instance;

  getObject(value: string): Object|undefined {
    return this._objects.get(value);

  setObject(key: string, objectClass: Object): void {
    this._objects.set(key, objectClass);

import { GlobalContext } from '../GlobalContext';
import mindSporeLite from '@ohos.ai.mindSporeLite';
import common from '@ohos.app.ability.common';
export class Test {
  value:number = 0;
  foo(): void {
    GlobalContext.getContext().setObject("value", this.value);
let globalContext = GlobalContext.getContext().getObject("value") as common.UIAbilityContext;
let inputBuffer : ArrayBuffer|null = null;
let inputName: string = 'mnet_caffemodel_nhwc.bin';

globalContext.resourceManager.getRawFileContent(inputName).then((buffer : Uint8Array) => {
  inputBuffer = buffer.buffer;
  console.log('=========input bin byte length: ' + buffer.byteLength)
// 1. Create a context.
let context: mindSporeLite.Context = {};
context.target = ['cpu'];
context.cpu = {}
context.cpu.threadNum = 1;
context.cpu.threadAffinityMode = 0;
context.cpu.precisionMode = 'enforce_fp32';

// 2. Load the model.
let modelFile = '/data/storage/el2/base/haps/entry/files/mnet.caffemodel.ms';
let msLiteModel : mindSporeLite.Model = await mindSporeLite.loadModelFromFile(modelFile, context);

// 3. Set the input data.
let modelInputs : mindSporeLite.MSTensor[] = msLiteModel.getInputs();
if (inputBuffer != null) {
  modelInputs[0].setData(inputBuffer as ArrayBuffer);

// 4. Perform inference and print the output.
console.log('=========MSLITE predict start=====')
msLiteModel.predict(modelInputs).then((modelOutputs : mindSporeLite.MSTensor[]) => {
  let output0 = new Float32Array(modelOutputs[0].getData());
  for (let i = 0; i < output0.length; i++) {
console.log('=========MSLITE predict success=====')

Debugging and Verification

  1. On DevEco Studio, connect to the device, click Run entry, and compile your own HAP. The following information is displayed:
   Launching com.example.myapptfjs
   $ hdc uninstall com.example.myapptfjs
   $ hdc install -r "path/to/xxx.hap"
   $ hdc shell aa start -a EntryAbility -b com.example.myapptfjs
  1. Use hdc to connect to the device, and push mnet.caffemodel.ms to the sandbox directory on the device. mnet_caffemodel_nhwc.bin is stored in the rawfile directory of the local project.
   hdc -t your_device_id file send .\mnet.caffemodel.ms /data/app/el2/100/base/com.example.myapptfjs/haps/entry/files/
  1. Click Test_MSLiteModel_predict on the device screen to run the test case. The following information is displayed in the HiLog printing result:
