I'm working on a project where I have to read many /.mat/ files to then
process it with OpenCV. I've seen there's the Matlab bridge but it
requires to have Matlab installed in your system and this it's what I
want to avoid. It might be a good idea to have an agnostic Matlab /.mat/
files loader such as the project cvmatio
<https://github.com/hbristow/cvmatio> as encoder/decoder.
