A highly configurable toolkit for training 3d/2d CNNs and general Neural Networks

Project description

ELEKTRONN is a highly configurable toolkit for training 3D/2D CNNs and general Neural Networks.

It is written in Python 2 and based on Theano, which allows CUDA-enabled GPUs to significantly accelerate the pipeline.

The package includes a sophisticated training pipeline designed for classification/localisation tasks on 3D/2D images. Additionally, the toolkit offers training routines for tasks on non-image data.

ELEKTRONN was created by Marius Killinger and Gregor Urban at the Max Planck Institute For Medical Research to solve connectomics tasks.


Membrane and mitochondria probability maps. Predicted with a CNN with recursive training. Data: zebra finch area X dataset j0126 by Jörgen Kornfeld.

Toy Example

$ elektronn-train

This will download the MNIST data set and run a training defined in an example config file. The plots are saved to ~/CNN_Training/2D/MNIST_example_warp.
