Hi Ruben,

Sorry about the delay in my response, I had several deadlines to meet at
the end of last week and the beginning of this week.
It was great meeting you last week, and I'm keen to see where your A.I work
takes you. I was chatting with a colleague at the University of Calgary who
said he is aware of other researchers in the states that are trying to
construct neural networks to assess the phylogenetic characteristics of
various early tetrapods. Are you aware of this work?

The file type that is output from a CT scanner is a "diacom", these need to
be converted to either a jpeg or tif in a diacom converter, and then
processed into an image stack in a software called "ImageJ". These image
stacks are then uploaded to "AMIRA" (FEI) for processing into 3D models.
I'm curious to see if you'll be able to streamline this process.

I did a little bit of research and there are several repositories for
paleontological CT data:
http://datadryad.org/
http://digimorph.org/
https://paleobiodb.org/navigator/

I think you'll find those sites very helpful for getting access to CT data
of material that you can play around with. Some of the data is freely
available, some of it you have to request.

Those links looked very cool! One lab you should check out is the Whitmer
lab, they are located at the University of Ohio. They do a great deal of CT
work, and then 3D modelling as a result (see:
https://sketchfab.com/witmerlab).

Again, my apologies for the late reply. Have a great day! Please feel free
to contact me whenever.

Sincerely,
Ramon

Ramon! I wanted to thank you for the time you gave me on Monday. It was ver=

and I think your doing the best work. It must be very exciting and I am int=

following your advancements. Do you have an currently available resources o=

Also, I need, if you don't mind, the name of that file type that the sc=

Also, can you
