EasyDeepLearning, the CNN library

Image The new EasyDeepLearning library is a Convolutional Neural Network-based classification library which learns by example. It has been tailored, parametrized and optimized for analyzing images, particularly for machine vision applications. It learns how to distinguish defects or classify parts by being shown many images of the parts to be inspected. It includes functions for dataset creation, classifier training and image classification. Compatible with CPU and GPU processing it is able to detect defective products or sort products into various classes. Read more ›
