The LabelMe is project created by the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) which provides a dataset of digital images with annotations. The dataset is dynamic, free to use, and open to public contribution. http://labelme.csail.mit.edu/index.html It is a very interesting way to research and experiment with computer vision. A toolbox for a different CAS is freely available on the project site, but apparently nothing for Mathematica. I wondered if WRI or anybody else has contacted the LabelMe team about developing a similar toolkit for our beloved system. It shouldn't be too difficult to develop anyway: the current toolkit basically downloads the database and interpret/analyse the XML code tagging the objects present in the scene. Considering that these functionalities are already integrated in Mathematica and with the image processing support already present in V. 7.0x, a powerful, yet easy to deploy, package could be created and released free of charge. This could be an excellent marketing vehicle to further promote Mathematica in the image processing users segment.
