There have been big improvements in image analysis over the last few years thanks to the adoption of deep learning neural networks to solve vision problems, but figuring out how to get started with them isn't easy.

In this webcast Pete Warden will walk through some popular open-source tools from the academic world, and show you step-by-step how to process images with them. Starting right from downloading the source and data, setting up the dependencies and environment, compiling, and then executing the libraries as part of a program, you'll be shown how to solve your own computer vision problems.
