Processing pictures

hi all,

Is there any application that allows to compare images and find some
patterns that to classify the new picture in a specific group.

"We have a microscope that imports a picture into the computer and we
need software to recognize, analyze and identify the correct treatment
comparing the new picture with reference samples."

Any suggestions?

Thanks
Pepe

Google for "chain code analysis". However, this is not a Rails question, and any library you find will probably have some hook you can call, such as from system("").

Ruby itself is too slow of a language to do high-end number crunching.

Further, microscope views are fuzzy and low-contrast, so raw chain codes might not work!
