I have an image of some nano particles that was taken with Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) attached here. I want to obtain center points coordinates (x,y) for each particle. Doing it by hand is very tedious. Since I just started to learn Machine Learning and got introduced to Artificial Neural Networks and kinda understand that they they are helpful with image classification, I am curious if I can use these tools to achieve my goal.
I found this article where they discuss kind similar work,,, but I am curious if you have seen anything practical or if you can give me some steps where and how to start, that's really helpful.
Any guidance is appreciated.
