**How the Browser Sees Your Face** by Mirek Ciastek
Snapchat's Filters and Apple's Animoji are one of the most famous examples of computer vision in popular applications. Based on complex algorithms, computer vision can be intimidating at the first glance. Luckily for us — Web Developers — processing images and face detection are now much easier to work with than before.
Previously mainly a domain of native apps, face detection is now available in our browsers. Thanks to modern web APIs and libraries, we are now able to process the image in real time on the front-end side. With face detection, you can go even a one step further and make the browser to recognize your face!
This talk will give you a brief overview of face detection concepts. You will see some popular methods of detecting the face using the web camera and how to use them in your applications.
