Poster presented as part of the Crick BioImage Analysis Symposium.  

clEsperanto is a collaborative open-source project, built on the evolution of the CLIJ platform, that aims to facilitate end-user access to modern computing hardware through an abstraction layer. Relying on a C++ low-level back-end structure, this layer allows calling GPU-accelerated image processing operations without the need for learning any specific complex language. Through this new architecture, the library is available for all major Bio-Image analysis softwares and languages while sharing the same functionnality and syntax, and running the same implementation.
