Some time ago I’ve started a new image processing project and obviously the first thing to do is to search the place where brilliant minds meet the powerfull software - yes, I mean this place
That got me thinking. How can this process be made faster, easier and more complete? Obviously there is the option of text searching but in some cases it is difficult or even impossible as the description usually follow the concrete usage cases and is not about what the images look like.
It may be the case that application that one work on is fairly unique - so the text search will yield nothing. However the imagery that is used may have features similar to something else that is well described and easily segmentable in CellProfiler.
What one would like to do in this situation is to take a quick look at all images in CP forum and see if any of them is somewhat similar. Then with one click one would get to the thread where this imagery is used.
The more advanced option would be to employ some google image search but that might be overkill.
What do you think about this idea?
