The napari-pyclesperanto-assistant is a yet experimental napari plugin for building GPU-accelerated image processing workflows targeting life-sciences and bio-image analysis. It is part of the clEsperanto project. It uses pyclesperanto and pyopencl as backend for processing images.
The tool implements a series of optimized contour and ridge detectors. The filters are steerable and are based on the optimization of a Canny-like criterion. They have a better orientation selectivity than the classical gradient or Hessian-based detectors.
