A Powerful Skill at Your Fingertips Learning the fundamentals of image convolutions puts a powerful and very useful tool at your fingertips. Python, opencv and Jupyter are free, easy to learn, has excellent documentation.
Image convolution is ubiquitous in everyday applications such as object detection, X-ray enhancements, license plate detections, autonomous car driving, restoration of antique photos. Its also pre-requisite for computer vision applications using machine learning.
Jobs in image convolutions area are plentiful, and being able to learn opencv and python will give you a strong edge.
Image convolutions tasks are becoming very popular. Amazon, Walmart, Google eCommerce websites are few famous example of image convolutions in action. Convolutional neural network (CNN) uses these techniques to find type of images. Deep neural network inside CNN learns these patterns by trying out various kernels to match image with target image.
Image convolutions tasks are vital in information retrieval and computer vision applications .
Big companies like Google, Facebook, Microsoft, AirBnB and Linked In already using image convolutions in information retrieval and social platforms. They claimed that using image convolutions has boosted productivity of entire company significantly.
