Almost off-topic: I wonder if Excire will plan a version that take advantage of a neural network computer stick like this: http://www.anandtech.com/show/11649/intel-launches-movidius-neural-compute-stick

This got my interest when Intel bought the company.
So far all their tools and software is for Linux only. They are focused on IoT at this time.

I'm sure we'll see similar hardware for a broader audience (aka Windows) soon. If the get their programming interfaces right and simple, it should be easy to integrate something like this in applications like IMatch.

+1 from me also.

This Excire functionality could save me a lot of time, and I'd be glad to pay a reasonable amount for it.

It we get this to work, it should be very useful. Great, even.
As for pricing, I'll leave that ti Excire. I won't make any money from this - except maybe when I can sell more IMatch licensed because users can then use Excire with IMatch.

Mario,

Do you have any news, when we could think about Excire support?

Excire shipped me something which allowed me to get an impression of how an integration could work. But this was only a quick shot, nothing I could really use for development.

Then there was a pause of several weeks, and yesterday evening they've sent me another thing to look at. But this version only works with Microsoft Visual Studio 2017. IMatch is created with Visual Studio 2015 (because I always wait for several months after a new version of VS comes out before I even install it). I will need to install Visual Studio 2017, rewrite my test suite and then test the Excire module again.

My initial results were promising for parts of my test suite. Not for all images, but Excire is enhanced all the time.
I'm also looking into the services provided by Microsoft and Google, which are both excellent and sometimes even astonishing.
