AForge.NET is a computer vision and artificial intelligence library originally developed by Andrew Kirillov for the .NET Framework.[2]

The source code and binaries of the project are available under the terms of the Lesser GPL and the GPL (GNU General Public License).

Another (unaffiliated) project called Accord.NET was created to extend the features of the original AForge.NET library.

Discontinuation of free public support and future development

On April 1, 2012, Andrew Kirillov announced the end of the public support for the library, temporarily closing the discussion forums. The last release of the AForge.NET Framework was made available on July 17, 2013. However, since its release 3.0 in 2015, the Accord.NET project started to incorporate most of the original AForge.NET source code in its codebase, continuing its support and development under the Accord.NET name.


The framework's API includes support for:

Complete list of features is available on the features page of the project.

The framework is provided not only with different libraries and their sources, but with many sample applications, which demonstrate the use of this framework, and with documentation help files, which are provided in HTML Help format. The documentation is also available on-line.
