Description

About This Book This book provides hands-on examples that cover the major features that are part of any important Computer Vision application It explores important algorithms that allow you to recognize faces, identify objects, extract features from images, help your system make meaningful predictions from visual data, and much more All the code examples in the book are based on OpenCV 3.1 - the latest version Who This Book Is For This is the perfect book for anyone who wants to dive into the exciting world of image processing and computer vision. This book is aimed at programmers with a working knowledge of C++. Prior knowledge of OpenCV or Computer Vision/Machine Learning is not required. What You Will Learn * Explore the steps involved in building a typical computer vision/machine learning application * Understand the relevance of OpenCV at every stage of building an application * Harness the vast amount of information that lies hidden in images into the apps you build Incorporate visual information in your apps to create more appealing software * Get acquainted with how large-scale and popular image editing apps such as Instagram work behind the scenes by getting a glimpse of how the image filters in apps can be recreated using simple operations in OpenCV * Appreciate how difficult it is for a computer program to perform tasks that are trivial for human beings * Get to know how to develop applications that perform face detection, gender detection from facial images, and handwritten character (digit) recognition In Detail Computer vision and machine learning concepts are frequently used in practical computer vision based projects. If you’re a novice, this book provides the steps to build and deploy an end-to-end application in the domain of computer vision using OpenCV/C++. At the outset, we explain how to install OpenCV and demonstrate
