Version 2.5.7 includes new image analysis controls including a corner detector. This control implements the Harris corner detector algorithm, described here Harris corner detector – Wikipedia
Here we can see the traditional test image Lenna with significant image features identified.
A new Blob Counter control has been added to the Imaging Whiteboard. This control will allow the user to identify and count blobs within an image.
A live image will be displayed with the total number of blobs displayed dynamically.
Freezing the image will allow the user to select individual blobs which will be identified by outline and ID in the display image.
The Game of Life algorithm is described here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conway%27s_Game_of_Life
This control will allow the game of Life to be run on an input image or test pattern. This is an example of emergence https://theconversation.com/emergence-the-remarkable-simplicity-of-complexity-30973
The following sequence shows successive iterations gaining in complexity. The first iteration where live cells exist on the edges of the seed image is predictable, subsequent iterations are not predictable (although they are reproducible). This sequence will run for more than 2000 iterations before becoming stable.
The beta sign-up page on the web site is up. The first of the beta testers are signing up.
Time to think about Beta 2. I’ll continue to stress the algorithms – accuracy is everything. And of course respond to feed back from the beta 1 testers.
In addition a new tool is under development; a score editor. This will not be a full blown score editor, there are enough of those on the market. It will allow users to make modifications and corrections to the transposed score.
The beta 1 version installer was produced this morning. There were a couple of last minute fixes. A bug fix to the auto-metronome. The copyright date was moved to 2014. The users guide was updated.
