Blocks may be easily used for your own experiments, and comes with some useful modules for computer vision experiments: an implementation of a simple image level bag-of-features (BoF) classifier, a fast agglomerative information bottleneck (AIB) sliding window localization scheme, and a class segmentation scheme using superpixel neighborhoods and a conditional random field (CRF). It also provides support for running experiments on clusters of computers.
