Can you stop and continue Cascade training? (Probably LBP)

Hi all,

I am about to do a cascade training in OpenCV (training for LBP Cascades) using a very large set of images. I have never done this with a large set of images, so I am interested in knowing whether it is possible to stop the training and start from where we stopped. For an example, I put the training on and it works, and turn it off at night so I can shutdown the PC, then turn it on again it in the morning and it continues the training from where it stopped. Is this is possible? It is very important for me to know this because it will decide the hardware I have to invest on and the time period. I look forward for your answers.

You can't stop training but you can quit training and start from the stage which finished last. Every stage when it finishes creates xml file which is loaded when you start again same cascade training.

Like suggested above, only possible to interrupt at stage level. This is already quite useful and used frequently to resume training the next day. However in the later stages a stage itself could easily take hours up to days. For this we use a dedicated server at our research group.
