Cosegmentation collecting implementation

Hi everyone, I am trying to develop a collect links to the implementations of Cosegmentation algorithms (in any language C/C++, Java, matlab, python, etc…). Unfortunately very few authors make their implementations public, so it becomes difficult for the new work in the area to compare their algorithm with what previously have been done.

Using Mendeley in Evernote

Finally I have found Evernote to be better than many other softwares for taking notes online, clipping them, arranging them etc… However Evernote is not the citation facility atleast I did not found it’s utility as such. For this I need Mendeley.

I keep all my research papers and other things in the Mendeley, but there is no way facility in Mendeley to make notes or collect them cite them, give them proper structure. For this I need Evernote.

But you cannot cite Mendeley entries in Evernote, which is quite frustrating. I found this to be one requesting such feature. Right now it has very small number of votes. It needs your help. Please give votes to this feature so that we can cite our research cataloged by Mendeley in our Evernotes and remove one more excuse of why we are not doing proper research 🙂


Mendeley and Zotero

Have started using Both 🙂

Both have their pros and cons.

I like Zotero because it is right in my Browser, click it and you can add tags search through it. Want to add webpages no problem. Link different documents with each other, add crazy tags, notes and other things. Amazing isn’t it.

Don’t like just because it is Browser. Well I am not huge fan of Firefox especially after the Chrome. Somehow Firefox and my comptuer’s memory management does not go hand by hand. And the Zotero Does not work with Chrome 😦

And Mendeley allows to see and put notes INSIDE the PDF. Well Frankly with the Apple’s Tablet on the Way I hope they can add feature to write on the PDF with PEN rather than that YELLOW Post-it appearing; but till then this option looks nice to me.

There is one big problem with the Mendeley, it does not allow you to note down the website. For example I was searching for some Image Datasets and I went to INRIA’s page. Now I wanted to store it and tag it as dataset so that I can access it afterwards. Yes I can bookmark it but what is the point of bookmarking if you have to save and access someother interface for this. Mendeley does not allow it. I don’t know why but they don’t. However Zotero does.

However there is Mendeley has the option to sync the Zotero, but it only syncs the PDF and nothing else. Therefore my line of action is use Zotero while working online and Mendeley for the offline work.
