Lecture: Making Software See

Image processing using OpenCV


Although creating graphics though software is easy, with many different libraries available to do so, interpreting images isn't so common. By using the OpenCV image processing library, it is possible to be able to detect features in images, such as people's faces and other objects, and process them further. This presentation will show how.

OpenCV is an image processing library initially developed by Intel, and available under the BSD licence. It is written in C/C++ and has bindings for many platforms, including Python, PHP, Java, .NET and Ruby. In this talk I will demonstrate the concepts behind OpenCV with examples in some of these languages and attempt to show the power of the library in a way that isn't language-specific.
