Unleash the power of computer vision with Python to carry out image processing and computer vision techniques
About This Book
Who This Book Is For
This book is for Python developers who want to perform image processing. It’s ideal for those who want to explore the field of computer vision, and design and develop computer vision applications using Python. The reader is expected to have basic knowledge of Python.
What You Will Learn
This book is a thorough guide for developers who want to get started with building computer vision applications using Python 3. The book is divided into five sections: The Fundamentals of Image Processing, Applied Computer Vision, Making Applications Smarter,Extending your Capabilities using OpenCV, and Getting Hands on. Throughout this book, three image processing libraries Pillow, Scikit-Image, and OpenCV will be used to implement different computer vision algorithms.
The book aims to equip readers to build Computer Vision applications that are capable of working in real-world scenarios effectively. Some of the applications that we will look at in the book are Optical Character Recognition, Object Tracking and building a Computer Vision as a Service platform that works over the internet.
Style and approach
Each stage of the book elaborates on various concepts and algorithms in image processing/computer vision using Python. This step-by-step guide can be used both as a tutorial and as a reference.
