Amy will give us a presentation (maybe a workshop) on the opencv computer vision package.
It will go something like this:
Intro to OpenCV:
* getting started
* paint! but with code!
* understanding different computer vision problems
* face/object detection
* real time video analysis
* feature matching
* object tracking
* identifying text
* extracting text and misc. features for solving business problems
We'll be trying this in a workshop format so bring a laptop with opencv-contrib-python and dependencies installed if you can. pypi has some helpful tips if you have trouble (Windows).
pip install opencv-contrib-python
