The application of Machine Learning and Deep Learning is rapidly gaining significance in Computer Vision. OpenCV lies at the intersection of these topics, providing a comprehensive open-source library for classic as well as state-of-the-art Computer Vision and Machine Learning algorithms. If you wish to build systems that are smarter, faster, sophisticated, and more practical by combining the power of Computer Vision, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning with OpenCV 4, then you should surely go for this Learning Path.
This hands-on course on OpenCV not only helps you learn computer vision and ML with OpenCV 4 but also enables you to apply these skills to your projects. You will firstly set up your development environment for building 5 interesting computer vision applications for Face and Eyes detection, Emotion recognition, and Fast QR code detection. You will then explore essential machine learning and deep learning concepts such as supervised learning, unsupervised learning, neural networks, and learn how to combine them with other OpenCV functionality for image processing and object detection. Along the way, you will also get some tips and tricks to work efficiently.
Contents and Overview
This training program includes 3 complete courses, carefully chosen to give you the most comprehensive training possible.
The first course, Hands-On OpenCV 4 with Python, is designed for you to develop some real-world computer vision applications. You will begin with setting up your environment. You will then build five exciting applications. You will also be introduced to all necessary concepts and then moving into the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and deep learning such as classification and object detection with OpenCV 4.
The second course, OpenCV 4 Computer Vision with Python Recipes, starts off with an introduction to OpenCV 4 and familiarizes you with the advancements in this version. You will learn how to handle images, enhance, and transform them. You will also develop some cool applications including Face and Eyes detection, Emotion recognition, and Fast QR code detection & decoding which can be deployed anywhere.
The third course, Hands-On Machine Learning with OpenCV 4, will immerse you in Machine Learning and Deep Learning, and you'll learn about key topics and concepts along the way.
By the end of this course, you will be able to tackle increasingly challenging computer vision problems faced in day-to-day life and leverage the power of machine learning algorithms to build machine learning systems and computer vision applications that are smarter, faster, more complex, and more practical.
