I'm reading a paper on counting cells, humans, etc. Is there an off-the-shelf library for Python/Theano or TensorFlow I could use?

I think the OP was asking for a specific library for Theano or TensorFlow that provides off-the-shelf functionality for object identification.

I would look first into scikit image, an image processing library for Python in the Scipy/Numpy stack. It has all sorts of edge detectors, blob detectors, shape identifications, color separations... Look at their gallery of examples: http://scikit-image.org/docs/dev/auto_examples/

Btw, counting humans in a crowd may not be so trivial to automate...

  • $\begingroup$ You are correct that I am asking for a library. Thanks for your suggestion. Taking a look now... $\endgroup$ – FullStack Dec 3 '15 at 9:42

Yes, there are libraries for TensorFlow and Theano.

Theano Library: An extensive tutorial for the Theano library is also available online.

TensorFlow library: An in-depth official tutorial of TensorFlow. (Highly recommend, if you're going with TensorFlow)

In addition, I would also like to suggest you to have a look at this question regarding open source Python deep learning libraries.

To see what you can do considering the size(area) of objects, the android app PHOTO COUNT do the job using opencv 3.1 library.

Not sure I understand the question... TensorFlow is OpenSourced, here is a tutorial

To import the TensorFlow library, all you need to do is:

import tensorflow as tf
