However, I’ve recently been particularly annoyed by Matlab’s slow speed, evil license manager errors, restrictions on parallel processes, C++ .mex file pain, […]

Though the code is, in principle, domain independent, I’ve developed it with vision problems in mind. This means that the code is A) efficient (all the inference algorithms […]
