Image recognition 101

In this workshop I would like to present introduction to image recognition using OpenCV. We would try to look for specific images on webpages screenshots using basic feature detection and matching algorithms.

For this workshop, you are invited to follow along. We will be using Jupyter Notebook and the OpenCV python package.
You can download jupyter here: https://jupyter.org/install and OpenCV here: https://pypi.org/project/opencv-python/ .

Pair programming

This talk will introduce the practice of pair programming. We'll discuss benefits of pairing and possible difficulties that may arise, and go over some of the recommended tools. Finally, we will do a live demo of both local and remote pair programming sessions.

Looking forward to seeing you all!
