Computer Vision

  • Computer Vision is an interdisciplinary field that deals with how computers cn be made to gain high-level understanding from digitl images or videos.
  • Computers use this concept to automte tasks which  human visual system can do.
  • It involves the development of a theoretical and  algorithmic basis to achieve automatic visual understanding.
  • As a scientific discipline, computer vision is concerned with the theory behind artificial systems that extract information from images.
  • The image data can take many forms, such as video sequences, views from multiple cameras, or multi-dimensional data from a medical scanner.
  • As a technological discipline, computer vision seeks to apply its theories and models for the construction of computer vision systems.

 

OpenCV

  • OpenCV is an image processing library used to implement Computer Vision.
  • OpenCV cn be progrmmed in C/C++/Python and available for Linux as well as for Windows and Mac.
  • It is open source and free and eay to use and install.
  • OpenCV with python presents  an array of unique features and tools along with amazing  library support.
  • That is how we intend to use OpenCV in the upcoming series.
