Testing computer vision algorithms over World Wide Web
Pattern recognition 1997 : proceedings of the 21st Workshop of the Austrian Association for Pattern Recognition (ÖAGM/AAPR), 1997
In this paper we explore different possibilities of using the Internet for making algorithms publicly available. We describe how to build an interactive client/server application which uses World Wide Web for communication. The client program is a Java applet. The server program works on the server as a CGI program which is started by the HTTP server on the demand of the client. The data transfered between the client and the server program passes also through the HTTP server as the HTTP protocol is used for data transfer. A stand-alone program for image segmentation was transformed into the Java-client/CGI-server application, which can now be used as a service on the World Wide Web.
