Paper Abstract

This paper addresses the issue of increasing productivity in experimenting with and using image analysis algorithms. Algorithm developers typically experiment with new algorithms in an environment consisting of an editor and compiler on general purpose computers. Such an environment has several disadvantages: (i) It is non-interactive in that the experimenter must go through several steps (e.g. editing, compiling and linking) to see the result of his changes; (ii) It forces the experimenter to concentrate on the details of the compiler instead of the details of the algorithm; (iii) The software so produced frequently demonstrates techniques of programming expediency instead of techniques which lend themselves to parallel implementation. These disadvantages stifle creativity and reduce productivity.
