I just found this project which shows great promise for use in OctoMY™.
cn24 is a portable and embeddable set of tools for building, training and using neural networks for per-pixel classification/labelling of input images.
It is refreshing to see a University project with such modern standards! It is available on github with travis ci build. It strives to be easy to use, performant and platform independent. It takes great care to not introduce any unnecessary dependencies and it even sports a commercial-friendly 3-clause BSD license! This aligns perfectly with our core values.
I hoipe to use this project for the many classification problems that OctoMY™ will handle in the future.
