SparseEdges: A bio-inspired sparse representation of edges in natural images.

Project description

[![PyPI version](](
[![Research software impact](](

What is the SparseEdges package?

Our goal here is to build practical algorithms of sparse coding for computer vision.

This class exploits the [SLIP]( and [LogGabor]( libraries to provide with a sparse representation of edges in images.

This algorithm was presented in the following paper:

priority = {2},
publisher = {Wiley, New-York},
title = {Sparse models},
year = {2015}

This package gives a python implementation.

Moreover, it gives additional tools to compute useful stistics in images; first- and second order statistics of co-occurences in images.
