Build practical applications of computer vision using the OpenCV library with Python. This book discusses different facets of computer vision such as image and object detection, tracking and motion analysis and their applications with examples.

The author starts with an introduction to computer vision followed by setting up OpenCV from scratch using Python. The next section discusses specialized image processing and segmentation and how images are stored and processed by a computer. This involves pattern recognition and image tagging using the OpenCV library. Next, you’ll work with object detection, video storage and interpretation, and human detection using OpenCV. Tracking and motion is also discussed in detail. The book also discusses creating complex deep learning models with CNN and RNN. The author finally concludes with recent applications and trends in computer vision.

After reading this book, you will be able to understand and implement computer vi …
