CHLOE: A tool for automatic outlier detection in microscopy image datasets.
CHLOE is a command-line utility that automatically mines and detects outlier microscopy images. It works in combination with Wndchrm, which first computes the numerical image content descriptors of the images. Binary files are available for Windows, but the source code is also available and can be used to create binaries in any platform that has C/C++ compiler.
