How to find us

The map pin doesn't help much. The photo is the key. Look for the brick building on the south side of the road with the big "8" on it. Find an open gate, park, go up steps between the olive trees.

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
* masking
* 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
