Artificial intelligence

The empanada-napari plugin is built to democratize deep learning image segmentation for researchers in electron microscopy (EM). It ships with MitoNet, a generalist model for the instance segmentation of mitochondria. There are also tools to quickly build and annotate training datasets, train generic panoptic segmentation models, finetune existing models, and scalably run inference on 2D or 3D data. To make segmentation model training faster and more robust, CEM pre-trained weights are used by default. These weights were trained using an unsupervised learning algorithm on over 1.5 million EM images from hundreds of unique EM datasets making them remarkably general.


AnnotatorJ is a Fiji Plugin to ease annotation of images, particulrly useful for Deep Learning or to validate an alogorithm. Interestingly, it allows annotation for instance segmentation, semantic segmentation, or bounding box annotations. It includes toolssuch as active contours to ease these annotations.
