Image Processing Datasets

Hi Friends! This time I have deviated from my niche and I am posting a cool information about Image Processing. I have been working in Image Processing, Audio Processing and in General Signal Processing domain for quite a long time now of about 1 1/2 years. So, time I thought of  sharing some image processing tips with you guys and guess what? I am also providing you with some dataset links that you can download and test your image processing skills onto.
Well, Image processing is a challenging domain and there have been numerous techniques and tools developed by peoples who are researching in this domain. This tools are mathematical tools that you can use to process any image and extract useful information from it also known as features. These features can be used for many applications most of them are related to classification which is a very interesting field of study too. BTW, I am mainly here to share some of the datasets that I have been working on for my image processing tasks and also a very standard library UCI Machine Learning Repository.
So, here are the link to three zip files of images from which you can extract features for your next awesome classifier.
First dataset: Lung CT Scan Images
Second dataset: OilSpill Detection Images
Third dataset: Signature Images

Use these image datasets as you want to and learn image processing. Its fun to learn and watch your computer telling you what's written on a piece of paper and is much more rewarding when you know that you have programmed it by yourself. Cheers.

A Stranger

Hi my favorite friends. I am happy as well as sorry. Happy, 'cause I am posting another excerpt from one of my old diary and Sad, 'cause I hadn't posted anything for so long and might have lost many nice readers. Well, anyways let's talk a little before I start telling you the except from my old diary. 
I have finally graduated and now I can call myself an Engineer. Also, I have created my personal website, you can visit it here TusharSrivastava.Com. I am also working on so many things these days that I barely get any time to share my interest. Although yesterday when I was sitting idle after enjoying a very nice evening with my family, I saw my old diary and I started to flip its pages. I was astonished and confused at the same time seeing my beautifully written paragraphs. That was when I realized that all these years after my 12th, I was cutoff from my English paragraph writing habit and my skill has lost somewhere. Now I am trying hard to get that skill revived again and I am very positive about that. 
Now when I have spoken so much about the lost paragraph from my old diary let me present you the original paragraph I had written when I was in 12th standard, about 4.5 years from now. 
Keep Reading...

A Tribute to Student Life

Sometimes the words even are not enough to express the sentiments you have in your heart. Sometimes, your eyes only can tell the story about your feelings. Sometimes, the only thing you want to have is stopping the time and live that moment forever.
Well, I am not being sentimental and actually I have a problem that I cannot feel sentiments and emotions. Today, our lives have taken a big leap ahead. We have left our college life or better to say our complete student's life. We will surely be moving ahead since life only has a single direction of propagation i.e. forward. When, I was 4, I started my second life, a life of student. As always said, school is like the second home for us, so I actually had started another life, a student's life. It was a long run till just now when I had completed this frame of my life.
I want to share something that made me what I am today since every person is molded into a new human being by different moments and incidents of life. I would like to thank all my classmates, some of my good friends and my best friends. I had never thought that I will have this face of my life too. When I was a kid, I always had difficulty making friends and frankly I had no friend. I never knew what friendship is and how many patriotic feelings are there for friendship. I always thought that I will not get any friend in my life but time do change. I took admission in a new school in 9th standard and my life changed. I got so many friends and soon do I realized that only few of them are the real gems, the guys I could say are my friends.
Then, I jumped into my college life and then a whole new phase of life started for me. Initially, I was an uncool (what modern guys would say) kind of guy. I was quite quiet and a little arrogant too. Though I had no false pride about anything that I posses but I was arrogant 'cause I never wanted anyone to take me lightly (you my friends know what I am saying ;) ) Then, I slowly started to change 'cause I found my classmates more of supportive nature rather than making fun of me. They also tried to change me by asking me to do things that I feared like bunking the class. Yet I wasn't comfortable doing so initially but soon, I dared and trespass my own limits and started enjoying these things like bunking, singing in the corridors and labs and classrooms (HaHaHa).
I was given respect and love by my friends and that was the catalyst in changing me, making me more humble and a little bit cool too.
Now, I cannot speak much or I will only be boring you. There are so many "I" in this post but It was not about me, It was about a little, nonsense, arrogant guy who was transformed into a humble, helpful, a little joyful and a little cool guy, and the peoples who have contributed their best efforts in transforming him.
In the end, I would like to thank all the respectful teachers who always supported me and teach me engineering. I would wish all of you a best of luck and a brighter than sun future. May GOD bless you always.

Alright, It was kind of a speech but believe me, it was intended to be so.... ;) A funny and jolly Tushar Srivastava wasn't required here 'cause It's the time when I had to pour my heart in front of all of you guys who made me what I am today. Thank you very much everyone. See you soon.

Another Post

Hi Friends!, How are you? I know I am posting very late this time. Guys and Gals (obviously), I can't tell you how busy I was these days, but it's fine. I don't think it will interest you. By the way, I am thinking of something to post. I am unable to guess anything. Can you help me?
Okay, see, I have posted about my life and how interesting it is (pretty boring right ;-) ) I also have posted a nice story ( can't say much as I didn't get a nice review till now). Now, what's left ? Okay, see I don't want you to read another boring (kind of) incident of my life. So, why not I tell you about what's going on these days. Yes, I know, you must be telling to me, "hey! we watch news". I know, and that's why I am not going to show you the picture, rendered by them. In fact I will be showing you the image that I have forged. Well, I am not a critic or something, and yes, I am not a person who can speak on topics like that, but I can do one thing. I can make you think. :-)
Keep Reading...... I am not off :-P
