Do you want to make your computer react to light, movement and gestures? Do you want to capture and process images and video as part of your project? Do you wonder: whats wrong with these lazy AI programmers, why cant my computer recognize me yet? Get answers to all these questions and more at the Foulab Workshop “Introduction to computer vision with OpenCV”!
The workshop is aimed at people with some programming knowledge, but not necessarily any computer vision knowledge. We will cover:
- how to install and set up the Open Computer Vision toolkit,
- an introduction to computer vision algorithms,
- a couple interactive OpenCV demonstrations that you can use as a starting point for your own projects.
The primary programming language for the workshop will be Python. Some C++ will also be used.
This workshop has an important hands-on component - please bring a laptop and a webcam. When you preregister, you may want to let us know what type of computer and operating system you have.
The cost is 25$. The workshop is limited to 20 places - please preregister by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please bring cash payment with you on the day of the workshop.
- Cost: 25$
- Time: Saturday, October 29, 1-5pm
- Required materials: laptop, webcam
The workshop presentations will be in English, but we are more than happy to provide support and answer questions in French. While this workshop will be limited in scope to OpenCV itself, people are encouraged to stay after the workshop and discuss more advanced topics, such as the interfacing of openCV with other libraries and languages. If you have projects in mind or in progress, please do stick around and chat with us!
